Good Morning - I teach an online Elementary Spanish Moodle course (completely online) but use Moodle in a hybrid format for my HS Spanish upper level courses. I teach in a private HS in Ohio, 9-12, Foreign Language. Moodle is also being used in a hybrid format in our science and religion classes.

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 We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.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

Hello! I don't want to intrude on the group as I am not employed yet... I am a graduate student close (Sept. 27) to earning a degree in Teaching and Learning with Technology. I desperately need advice concerning my next move! I would like to design online courses - not just administer already-packaged courses. I can either continue into a doctoral program, obtain another Master's degree, or start working to pay off the student loans! I don't know if my degree will allow me to design courses because I have only been a substitute teacher in private schools (my Bachelor's is in Public Affairs). I don't think employers will feel that I have enough classroom experience. If you had the choice, what would YOU do?

I teach post-secondary students. I am an adjunct faculty member at Monroe Community College teaching Economics and Personal Finance in a hybrid/web enhanced mode using Angel. I also just started teaching Economics at Nazareth College's School of Management and am learning Blackboard to enhance my courses there. Longer term, I have an interest in teaching in a fully online mode as well. I may also branch out to other course areas including Business, Geology, Information Technology, and Engineering.

I work as a Facilitator for the Instructional and Leadership Development Centre (ILDC) at the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science & Techonology (SIAST). This means I work with instructors. I teach an blended on-line course on evaluation. Since I work with a wide-variety of faculty it is interesting to see that evaluation is always a HOT topic.

I teach online and hybrid English courses for a regional community college. Our primary platform is Blackboard.

I am an educational designer and I help teachers design blended learning/open learning courses, through workshops, 1x1 time and online professional development courses. I think I spend a lot of my time redesigning what I do; I am not sure if this is because I am not in to routine, or because I really need to.
I use Moodle, and at the mo trying to develop an Instruction design/learning design approach that is based in recent pedagogy and is useful for teachers who don't have interest for educational stuff but do want a good course.

I teach an undergrad online course at Texas A&M University in Commerce, Integrating Technology into Curriculum. At the begining I taught this course as a web enhanced with a half session online and half face to face. This past summer was my first all online course and I love it. I use twitter, wiki, blogging, voicethread, podcasting in my class. Since I don't believe in testing I require an electronic portfolio as a final project in this class. So far I am very satisfied with the way my class is going.

I teach natural and cultural sciences with The University of Phoenix and Ashford, to adult undergraduates. I so fully asynchronous online learning now, and have been since 2005. To Kate: I got an invite to Google Wave, and frankly, I found it really not useful at all compare to other similar programs I have used. I don't like it at all.

How to Recognize the "Fluff" and Tips to Avoid It

An attractive piece of writing speaks for itself. It is clear, competent and disseminates only the necessary information. But is this always the case with all writers? The answer is apparent. A good number of writers are victims of writing content full of fluff. Fluff boarders on words that are meaningless to content being written. When fluff is evident in writing, it becomes difficult to understand the message, read…See More
