I checked out the technolote page, but it seems I need to create my own blog to become your friend. Taking baby steps with the technology, so I don't know if I'm ready for that yet, but I will check it out periodically to see what you are doing in your classroom. Cheers!
Thanks for the warm welcome. I don't use my skype a whole lot any more, but I'll keep an eye out for you when I'm on there. Do you have a certain textbook/software/website you like to use for your class, or is it too numerous to list here? I know that Australia is way ahead of the U.S. in Chinese education. By the way, I see you went to Monash. I have some friends who went there! -Aaron-
Nice to 'meet' you in webcast academy today! Look forward to working with you more throughout the experience. Also, I'm going to put you in touch with our high school Chinese teacher, Ms. Lu Laoshi. Her blog address is: http://ilovechinesei.blogspot.com/
It might be fun to do a recording with you and our Mandarin teacher at my school at some point in our Webcast Academy experience.
I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation...I'm so jealous!!!
Hi, Jess. Do you know about fluencyfast.com? They just released an 8 disc DVD set for learning Mandarin using the TPRS method- might be an interesting addition to your classes. It's cheap to, 45$ US...
Hi Jess. thanks for adding me. I joined a while ago because this site looks really promising as a specialized networking tool, but, boy, life is busy. I haven't done a thing on my page at all! I have browsed some of the discussions, and I gather you found me because I joined the digital languages group. I want to thank you for your great blog. I've plugged it many times in presentations I do for other staff. Your delicious bookmarks are great too! You must either be superwoman or you don't have as many diapers to change as I have... ;)
Just found you wrote on my Classroom 2.0 page in October and I didn't reply - how rude of me. I am SO sorry - please forgive me! Email at school has been mucking about for weeks and not delivering messages or delivering them weeks after they were sent etc.
Sounds a good idea except I don't have Skype (must get it!!) but could do Flashmeeting or MSN or whatever! let me know xx
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas everybody!

Yes, still interested! The blur of the first part of the year is starting to subside, so we can talk. Maybe sometime this evening (your morning) or over the weekend? You're 15 hours ahead of us here: http://tinyurl.com/w9p3
Hi Jess, Creating a project together is fantastic. My students, parents- and I - will be thrilled. i'll look around a bit for ideas and let's get together. Let me know what tools you are interested in incorporating. This is just our second week in school and we started with a bang with new plans this year. Are you interested in any video projects? claymation maybe? One of my next projects needs to incorporate video and I will use student remote devices to conduct surveys, ask questions, ect as part of lesson when viewing.
Looking forward to working with you,
Hi Jess! Thanks for the friendship. I am looking forward to putting our heads together a bit. I teach a unit on the Chinese American immigrant experience where the students make movies about Chicago's Chinatown. I am hoping that we might be able to get our kids together somehow.
I've also just begun working with Twitter, and I know I have a lot to learn about applications in the classroom. It's amazing how they can really run with new technology with a simple introduction.
