Hi Pamela. I was wondering if you have any high school contacts 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!
Do you know what was wrong with my message box in Blackboard? It was AOL interfering with Blackboard. I had tried the ideas from Chestnut Hill College and nothing changed. Finally I went on Internet Explorer and everything worked.
This site is suddenly a lot more interesting with all of us joining each other's pages!
Pamela - It is not my video, to give permission to use. It is simply one that I added to my video section of my page at Classroom 2.0, I believe that credits are at the end of the video. I really thought that it presented assessment in a very different light, than what we currently do here in the U.S. and especially Maine.
Pamela - I used to be stationed in Sandy Hook, NJ (Gateway National Park) when I was in the Coast Guard, how far away from there are you?
From looking over the information on your website and this page, I would love to include you as a friend, thank you. -- Harold
I just started reading the book you reccommended, The Human Side of School Change. I blogged about it (http://www.edtechpower.blogspot.com). Thanks so much. I am really enjoying it and learning a lot.
Hi Pamela, thanks for leaving a message, unfortunately I'm not at a Katom school, what a wonderful initiative that is. I have just finished translating the Ning interface to Hebrew, as soon as the new Ning translation tool becomes available - it should be over the weekend, I will upload my translation for others to use. You can see my Hebrew language, Ning support site here: http://inhebrew.ning.com
So glad you are enjoying Mindset. I'm a little culty about it. It is nice to hear that others also see the value in this book. I still want to develop some professional development for teachers based on Dweck's ideas.
