Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is: www.twitter.com/rosselmulaire

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

Rossel Mulaire

Colegio Euroamericano,

8th and 9th grade Social Studies teacher

Social Studies Department Head and Model United Nations Advisor

New update to the Edutweets Widget. I made a version that is much slimmer, it should work for most sidebars.

I have created a Twitter account for my high school library (nhhsmediacenter) so that I can send scheduling updates, new book alerts, contest announcements, etc., to students, staff, and parents who follow the account. One concern: Although I know the tweets that I post will contain "school appropriate" content, I'm concerned about what may appear in the Followers section (by clicking on the "followers" link on the right of the nhhsmediacenter Twitter page). I'm not wild about the prospect of seeing my library's name in the page header with potentially offensive follower tweets below it. Remember: I'm dealing with teenagers here. Is there any way for me to disable public viewing of my followers' posts? Should I deal with this when/if the problem arises (i.e., if I notice a follower with an offensive tweet, block him/her)? Or should I just not sweat it?

I'm new to Ning, PLN and Twitter, but I believe it has great potential.
My situation is that I'm an English language teacher working in Taiwan (at present) in an elementary school.
I'm reasonably sure that if I suggested using Twitter with students here I'd get some very strange looks, at the least.
However, through this group I hope to build my understanding and develop some useful ideas and strategies that might change that in time.
Also, I hope to enjoy some banter with fellow teachers struggling with how to bring GOOD new technology into the classroom.
Greetings and best wishes, Greg.

I recently collected some resources (and my thoughts a little) on uses of twitter for teaching and learning. If you are interested, feel free to take a look and comment: http://michaelcjohnson.posterous.com/teaching-and-learning-with-twi... I'd love to hear additional ideas and suggested resources from all of you. And connecting with you, if you'd like, on twitter @michaelcjohnson

I would like to use twitter in my classroom, but my district will not allow it. I am able to incorporate a feed onto my web site for class updates and communication though...using Retaggr which is not blocked. http://mrsgsclass.com

I'm currently conducting research for a journal article I intend to write regarding the potential to use Google Glass for teacher observations.I have 17 questions split over two Survey Monkey surveys I'm hoping anyone who participates in teacher evaluations wouldn't mind filling out. Your confidentiality is important, so there are no questions requiring you to identify yourself.Here are the surveys:…See More

MineCraft Learning!

Calling all teachers, learners, gamers and nerds!Minecraft is like legos on the computer.  Actually, Minecraft is much more than that!  We've converted minecraft into an ESL teaching tool!   It's also an organization management learning tool!  It's also a math learning tool! It's an economics learning tool!  It's so much more!  Our teachers at our school here in China have been teaching with Minecraft for about a year now and we are finding that you can teach almost any subject with it!My…See More
