Hi Ted -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.
If you add yourself to the map, please include a name or a photo of some sort. There seem to be a lot of unidentified people from unidentified places and the map is getting stuck on for some reason. The problem is that I can't tell from the members’ list which anonymous hits are real people and which were just false starts. The company does not differentiate members unless there is a picture or a name. Location only is not enough to help me know which entries are not real ones. THANKS!!!!
Just looked at your active learning site - great examples. My grade 4 kids are doing many similar things with blogs, wikis, video and lots of project based learning. It's amazing how fast these technologies are finding their way into little kid classrooms!
By the way...the website you gave is very interesting. You know, they don't teach Canadian history here in the states. When I met my husband, I didn't know where Saskatchuwan was! Sorry if I spelled that wrong! :)
Lovely to meet you and greetings from Australia. You will be looking forward to summer and winter is coming here. We have had a terrible drought and will really welcome any rain that falls this winter. I love this Board; everyone is so friendly, but am still finding my way around
Well we seem like we both have many years of education in our backgrounds. Looking forward to collaborating. I checked out the blog you have listed- great use of it . It is an exciting period in technology, as it should be!!!!
Hi Deirdre. You are fortunate to have had a cabin on La Ronge lake. I live here and have been unable to find one for sale at the right time. They are seldom advertised locally. The market is elsewhere. If I had a cabin on the lake I would be travelling to and from work via water.
Hi Deirdre, thanks for the invitation. Great to read your blog and hear about such a long-term use of computers in higher ed. I know medicine has changed a lot since you started teaching, and it's great to hear of higher ed integration (which may be routine - I'm not sure!) -- Pamela
