On this podcast Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison are joined by John Concilus, Director of Educational Technology, and a student from one of the schools in the Bering Strait School District. John introduced himself a few weeks ago by responding to an earlier podcast with a "Comment and Invitation for Collaboration."
Learn more about the Bering Strait School District and their work with technology. Then this Wednesday, April 30, join John Concilus again, plus a teacher from Brevig Mission, AK, Ginger Crockett, and others. Woody Woodgate and a colleague may be joining us as well. (Maybe we’ll finally find out more about that seal hunt.)
We are excited to continue our connections with teachers in Alaska, and in particular we want to learn more about "place-based education." Here’s what John said in a recent email:
We’ve already decided at the budget meeting to move forward with
our Digital Foxfire program next school year. I’ll have more information about this
by Wednesday, but will have a form set up by then for having potentially intersted
partner schools sign up.
Some projects involving sites in multiple locations using our Wiki, Ning, etc…
