Hi Sharon. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Sharon, you're scheduled to go on a "Speed Demo" before me at NECC Unplugged. Only problem - I can't make it! I can arrange a webmeeting or something though so I can do the demo from afar. I was wondering if you would mind going to a url on the master laptop or your laptop so that I could still do the demo.... Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we could talk about it.
I just saw the comment you left for me a month ago -- I don't know why I wasn't notified you left it or why I didn't see it earlier. Unfortunately, even though I was successful in getting Ning unblocked by our District, the CAPTCHA is still blocked, so students can't sign-up. Sigh... I'm now working with a group of teachers from different parts of the world on projects that we're sharing other ways.
We will be hosting a Moodle Meet on Jan. 4th from 9-12 in Northbrook, IL at the District 28 offices both in person and online http://moodlemeet.ning.com. We look forward to meeting, hearing, and sharing with Moodlers, Moodler wannabes, and Moodler maybes.
Sure on the video's they are not really mine to say one way or the other, just ones that I want to show to other people and for myself. We are getting ready to try out Moodle, I get to go to the DOE training on Dec 7, it looks interesting and hopefully I will be able to figure it outl. Well trying to setup a new laptop, wife said I could buy an new one and I just got it this afternoon. Any suggestions on must have 2.0 stuff? Thanks Harold
Hi Sharon - We are almost neighbors, I live in Sidney and teach at Good Will-Hinckley. I am still learning this site, and learning 2.0 stuff...Would you be interested in becoming a friend on this site? Thanks Harold
You're welcome for the friend invite--long ago though it was. And thank you for reminding me not to apologize for working through things ... my best ideas do come as I write my way to them. I'm just hoping in these new spaces (or new to me anyway) folks are forgiving of the errant letter or misspelled word : )
Actually I wondered if you would be willing to particpate a little. I am setting up one network with two groups. One ele, one middle school. If you would like to join us it would be great to way to show them how networking gives you access beyond DuBois.
PM me at email@example.com and I will send you the link.
Who knows maybe we could get you down here for the summer workshops I am pushing for in 08.
I am going to push for a cohort of 10 (1 from each team in the middle school) to be my focus. I will offer training, but I will really focus on the 10. Question: Is it prudent to start dealing with the question of e-portfolios (personal spaces) now...or is that something that will happen later. (It will take a few month to even get the group orgainized, I think)
Also. How did you do it? What kinds of things did you start your first group on?
