Hello Dr.

Nellie Deutsch, It's nice to meet you.I teach mathematics and ststistics in a polytechnic in Ghana.It has been my desire and aspiration to integrate tecnology into teaching mathematics and statistics.

I am participating in M4T-O. I have also registered for the forth coming eL4C51.I'm really looking forward to taking part in these courses and hope to achieve my objective of integrating technology into teaching. I am now having a feel of online learning.

Congratulations for your contributions to wiki and moodle.

Bye for now. Godfred--Godfredabledu 07:55, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Free Online Learning (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

I believe online learning should be free and available worldwide. If you feel the same, join me at Integrating Technology where you can learn and create your own online courses using Moodle course management system (CMS). Free Moodle training and professional development courses will be offered free of charge to teachers who wish to provide free learning for others. The professional development and training will be done asynchronously via Moodle and synchronously via WiZiQ, a free real time online classroom.

I would appreciate your thoughts on providing free online learning via Moodle.

Thank you

Dr. Nellie Deutsch

Hi Nellie, I've been following you since [learnhub.com] and your website [Integrating Technology]. I surely agree that online learning should be free and available worldwide. At my school, in Portugal, we are starting a [Moodle] platform to implement e-learning for all students in every subject matter; each classroom has been provided with a screen, a projector and a spot of wireless internet will cover the whole area of the school. We have been given some lessons about dealing with [Moodle] - version 1.8 - and the young students were very enthusiastic about it in their first trials: a special room where students were empowered as administrators has been settled for my young students - 10 to 12 years old. During this school year, we have also tried to set up a [pbwiki], but I know so litle about wikis that I would like to follow the workshop starting the 28 July. We have been also using [tiddly wiki], wich is very handy as it may be carried in a pen and allows working off line. I'm looking for a wiki that is similar to tiddly wiki and that students under 13 may use according to the law. I've been also looking among semantic wikis; I would be very grateful if you give me your advice on this matter. I will go on looking for your training lessons with web2.0 tools; I would love to learn to use voice thread, podcasts and collaborative video with my young students. I have been supported and encouraged by my learning community at [edublogs.org]where I'm starting a blog. I also apologize for my poor writing in your beautiful language. Thank you so much for listening to me. Ines

Thanks, dear Nellie, for refining my page on webquests. I added a few things to the teacher mentor section that you have begun. Today is the penultimate day of my first WE workshop and the learning experience has been wonderful. Regards..... Cynthia D'Costa --Agnes 11:03, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Cynthia, your user page looks great. Perhaps, you'd like to join me in facilitating WebQuests for Active Lifelong Learning at IT4ALL Moodle.

Merging webquest categories (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Hi Nellie,

I noticed that there are two categories on the topic of WebQuests: Category:WebQuest and Category:WebQuests. I'm thinking that these should be merged. My preference is the plural version, because the category lists pages with information about and pages that are examples of WebQuests (pl.).

If you agree, being that you've contributed to both of the categories, I'll go ahead with the merge.

Hey, congrats on completing your doctoral degree!

Alison

Hi Alison,

Sorry for the late response. I don't always get notifications for these messages. I wish it would capture both. We need to talk to Jim about adding such a feature. In that case, the singular would be the preferred form. But let's talk to Jim, first.

Thank you for your kind words. I highly recommend the doctoral process at the University of Phoenix online. Let me know if you want to hear more.

Dear Nellie Hi our names are Bruce & Brydie we are writting on behalf of our daughter Tanisha. We are considering purchasing a mobile home and travelling around NZ.Our greatest concern is the continuing education of our daughter Tanisha at the highest standard possible.She has shown an acceptional ability to be self motivated, and has shown us good time management skills. It is only with these qualities to her credit that we are considering what we call correspondece education.(However it looks like that term may now be out of date lol.Not that we think we are that old !!!!!!) Please can you let us know if we are in fact in the right place for this or if not could you please advise us of where to go. She is this year a year 10 (forth form) Student. Thankyou for your time and we look forward to your reply. P.S Man I don't know where you find the time to answer all these emails, I'm impressed. Bruce And Brydie...

BOL workshops (1)

Hi Nellie, Sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you. Am doing a face to face workshop on Flash and it has been keeping me busy. I would love to be a part of the awesome work you are doing. However, I have no experience in "co-developing and facilitating BOL workshops on TESOL-O and ESOL and Integrating Technology in the curriculum/classroom", so you would have to guide me through the process. I must confess it's very daunting, but I'm always eager to learn more so I can be a better teacher. Looking forward to hearing from you.--alexgfrancisco 19:04, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

How to upload powerpoint presentations to my page (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Hi Nellie, I am working on a wiki page for my school Comenius Project (see our page: MrsGPaulScarron). I can't figure out how to upload the powerpoint presentations that my students have worked so hard on! I've tried the tutorial, and think I have the syntax right because I've managed to create the Media icon on the student pages, but I'm getting stuck at the upload files part. I have gone through the upload file page, but I'm not sure where they go after that! How do I retrieve them and paste them into the syntax? Thanks so much for your help. I am loving using wiki for this project, and the students have picked it up very fast. Denise Barstow Girel alias MrsG(irel) in Lycée Paul Scarron in France) denise@barstow.cx

A little bit surprised (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

My very dear nelliemuller: First I should thank you again for letting me know about all this goodies: the connectivity course, this workshop, etc. I have really enjoyed it and I'm having a lot of fun going through all this learning. I'm a little surprised by the attrition frecuency in latin american (LA) participants. As part of the exercises for today (the 4th day) I visited some of the LA participants and noticed that most of them have not done the exercises up to this moment. Is that ussual? Have you noticed different attrition (not finishing or even trying to do the required exercises) depending upon the country or part of the world? Is it possible to check in past seminars (eL4C32 and bacwards) to check for this point? It could be a nice research project (even heplfull for your thesis I gather). Please excuse my poor english, it is very rusty, but I keep trying. LO

Hi Luis and thank you for taking the time to say such nice things.

I want to say thank you for your promptness and dedication. It is nice to feel how gratifying a quick response is from an exprienced instructor like yourself. I know students appreciate it but it is my first time to exerience it myself as a learner. I thought of applying for certification but felt that I still needed to produce evidence then logged in after a day and saw that you have already ckecked my page, evaluated it and certified me. Thank you very much. I appreciate your help.It made a relatively new field much easier. --Maha El Tantawi 23:08, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Nellie

I am fascinated with how WikiEducator works - how easy it can be to learn and how much fun and how many "friends" you can make online. I enjoyed the online activity even though I was a witness after the night. And.. oh and how my eyes are now wide open to the potential of this medium for teachers across the globe. So exciting!!!

Hi Nellie! I'm really amazed about your extraordinary ability to follow and direct all the stuff I see on your page.

Thank you for my wikibuddy status ... I'm having so much fun doing all this. The timing is just perfect for me and others at school.

And as others have said it's just a beginning - getting involved with Paul from the MOE and the OERNZ project will be an exciting next step for me.

Many Thanks

Content box & resources (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Hi Nellie - is there anyway to NOT have a content box?

I've been working on this: http://www.wikieducator.org/User:Dragonsinger57/Cheat_Codes

I had two problems:

  • When i used idevices without section headings the content box appeared 1/2 way down the page inside an idevice
  • Then when i put headings in i had to force a line break (i know that's in the quickstart page)

What I want is to be able to turn the content box off (for a single page resource it's not really needed)

Hi Nellie. I need a bit of help with the use of templates. They don't seem to be working for me any more. Is it something I am doing incorrectly?

Any suggestions most welcome--Robin 01:03, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Nellie for evaluating me as a Wiki Buddy. Its a big achievement for me. I was reading through your page and came across collaborative book-Innovations in Education. I was thinking on contributing towards- 'Importance of development and utilization of local resources for an effective teaching practise', specially for its significance in our country-India. However I am no more an educator. Its only my previous experiences. Can I contribute? Your page gives much to think about. Regards- Shalinee Bhardwaj

Hi Nellie, thank you very much for certifying me as a WikiBuddy, this a new challenge for me. This has been a very possitive and encouraging opportunity for me and I am looking forward to continue collaborating on the WikiEducator Project. I will be honored to help and right now I am thinking about two issue: helping translating some content into Spanish (please, let me know how) and working in my country page (Where do I start?).

This a great course that I would recommend colleagues, but unfortunately the English language will be a limitation for them. That`s I would like to help with the translation into Spanish.

I am committed to continue improving my skills and collaborate with others. Thanks again for your feedback!

Can we not link the page there? It seems you have moderated that page.

Please advise.

Hello Nellie,

I just wanted to let you know I appreciate all your efforts in your wikis, nings, and wiziqs that I find myself involved with (admittedly to varying degrees) - I don´t know how you find the time to keep up with them all! It sure has been a learning experience, that's for sure.--Benjamin Stewart 02:44, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Nellie,

How does one become a wikiartisan? Is there a workshop or some other formal training, or does it just happen by improving wikipages and completing other criteria set by the wiki community.

Thanks, Benjamin

I hope you got you answer by now, Benjamin.

About uploading presentations and videos (1)

Dear Nellie, I will try Open Office to have some presentations available to upload in Wikieducator. But, is it possible to embed presentation from Slideshare or videos from Youtube like if we were writing a post in a blog? I looked for that information in Wikieducator's tutorials but I didn't find anything about. I also wrote an invitation to next L4C workshop and a link to the register page in my user page. Is there any other way to promote it? Thanks again dear Nellie for all your help and dedication. I think I'll have more questions in the future so thank you also for your patience :).

Biologist on the loose (1)

Hi Nellie,

I love what you are doing! I added a description of interactions between my college Biology students and ESL students in one of our partner schools. I don't know if it fits the bill, but it's all I have! It's not particularlly scholarly, in that I'm not plugged into the ESL literature at all and I must admit, it'd be a bit of a reach for me to try. But it is an honest description of what we have been doing, and if it is of use, let me know.

Cheers,

Declan

Hi Nellie, this is Julia! (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Greetings from Julia! Nellie, I have a question, maybe it's not a question: I used to teach English in a middle school in my hometown. Then I came to shanghai and worked as a salesperson. Currently I'm making efforts to have a breakthrough in my career. I know that teaching is always my heartest thing to do. Friends often ask me: hey, Julia, teach me English, my English is poor. Chinese students often pay more attention to their grades and spend lots of time on reciting words and grammar rules. Although in recent years, people focus more on communication, still they found there're few chance to speak English and make some progress. Then I got the idea of building up an openly English learning on-line community. I was a little overwhelmed by the idea and wondered where I should start. So many challenges for me. I learnt that the "Open educational resources" building includes seeking, composing, adapting, sharing. But still I don't know where is the best starting point. Maybe I should start with the New Concept English? It is a popular English learning book in China. So far, I am learning about e-learning tools now, since there're so many vedio, audio and slide sharing tools on the internet. I Enjoy talking to you, Nellie. Just now I was listening to your English course on Wiziq :0 It's wonderful! thank you.--heyjulia 09:23, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi Julia,

Thank you for your kind words. Would you be interested in collaborating together on setting up a course? I also have a Moodle site LEO.

You have accomplished so much in such a short time! Your page is a wealth of information. It is very inspiring to see all the ways you have linked into the world of information and shared knowledge. I am very excited about wikieducator and am eager to pursue it until I feel that I know what I'm doing, so you may see me here frequently. I am working on materials for workshops I am doing this summer in Turkey and in the Fall in Abu Dhabi. I think Wikieducator is the perfect platform, if I can master it. Many thanks for the excellent tutorials, resources and guidance. It is the best I've seen in online education!--Marina McIsaac 04:00, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Resistance to using Audio and Video (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

How can universities overcome instructor resistance to using audio and video applications?

Hi Nellie,

This is something most University Lecturers are struggling with. We call it "technophobia". It is often seen as being too complicated and complex and many universities operate in very traditional ways, thereby preventing themselves from making it easier on themselves. The skill base is also often not there. I personally think that it will eventually change and often through people who act as agents of change and lead by example, but that's just my personal view. Why don't you post this question on WikiEducator in a context where it fits. Cheers, Patricia

Patricia said: Why don't you post this question on WikiEducator in a context where it fits.

Patricia, I may not be new to html and other codes, but I am new to this space and how it functions. Can you direct me on the big picture of how to maneuver on Wikieducator? I think I need some guidance.

Thank you.

Nellie

Thank you, Nellie. You are doing great as well.

←In reply to Resistance to using Audio and Video (1) by Nelliemuller, above:

If I may extend the conversation to technology in general, I can provide one example that is working. At Saint Michael's College in Vermont we have a gifted information technology (IT) staff. Because the faculty respond rapidly to other faculty, the IT department patiently recruits mentors from among the faculty. I say patiently because the IT staff know the information better than the faculty. However, seeing a faculty member master a new technology gives hope and inspiration to others. So each summer when our students are off campus we have a week long workshop for around ten faculty members. The workshop is run by a small team of IT professionals, two faculty mentors, and some guest speakers. It works; it fills each year; there are now faculty mentors from a range of departments around our campus and the effect on the classroom use of technology is dramatic.Dmccabe 02:09, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

←In reply to Resistance to using Audio and Video (1) by Nelliemuller, above:

You have raised a good point. As I cannot speak for the community, I am responding with my personal view. In my personal opinion, this can only be done by leading by example. It is often the fear of technology, the extra effort, the lack of facility that can handle these things, but I have seen it many times, once somebody takes the initiative and it works, others will want to follow.

Cheers, Patricia

Hi Patricia,

I appreciate your personal response. I wish my colleagues were here to read it.

Warm wishes,

Nellie

Keep doing what you are doing and one day you will find that door, I am pretty sure. I see it every day, just in another context. Once they have the Ah ha! experience, things start working. Cheers, Patricia

←In reply to Resistance to using Audio and Video (1) by Nelliemuller, above:

Maybe by somehow making it easier and more effective than what they are doing now... and - in a way that doesn't take away from them being the center of attraction :) Let's face it, many lecturers probably get a kick out of 300 or so people coming to see them perform a lecture.. especially those that think or know they give good lectures. Recording their work threatens to take away from that. Its a bit like live musicians would have thought when the first record hit the market. Some would have resisted making recordings, and maintained their faith in the live performance.. education has always been slow to catch up with social changes, so perhaps the answer to your question lays in the history books of the music industry.

This is the only answer I can find, because clearly it is effective and helpful to students to have access to audio recordings. Since mini cassette technology - or portable audio recording, students have been recording lectures.. but its rare to find a faculty doing it for them..

Individual blogging and podcasting can be used in such a way to make a lecturer a super star.. in a lecturery kind of super star way (what ever that might be.. I shudder to wonder)..

BTW.. the link to your audio required me to sign in to listen.. that was an unnecessary barrier that stopped me listening to it..try using services that don't require such a think.. suggestion? Blip.tv

Hi Nellie
I have not done much in the last couple of days as I've been looking after my Mother-in-Law (eye problems). However today I caught up with all the work up until Day 8. I have visited most of the other participants user pages & left a "hello" message on their discussion page. I'll continue onto Day 8 work now... Cheers Image:SoleteRayosÑajo.gif

Hi Jenni,

Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law's eye problems. You are doing a fabulous job on the wikieducator. Your page is incredible. I love the colors and how you introduce your sandbox. You are a natural. Excellent!

Hi Nellie,

I put this note on the talk page of Students

I am concerned that this website is becoming impenetratable because users are putting up material with too generic a title. At present there is a list of current students on the Ort Guttman Improve your writing course. I would like to suggest that that list is put at Ort Gutman High School/EFL Writing Practice Improve Your Written English/StudentsLeutha 14:17, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi Leutha, I added WP to all the names on the menu. Thank you for pointing things out. However, I would still like a step by step explanation on the scenarios that would occur as a result of using generic names in a template.

Thank you.

Nellie

Hi Nellie, I was surprised that you removed the content of Ort Gutman High School/EFL Writing Practice Improve Your Written English/Students without putting anything on the discussion page. This is helpful in enabling those who look at the page to see why the removal was seen as appropriate. Even a simple reference to this page would enable people to find what is going on.

You asked me to explain the point about the student page in more detail. When I saw a page entitled "Students", at first I imagined that itwas a page explaining what is meant by students, or even a page listing other pages where I could find lists of students doing various courses. I was somewhat surprised to find that far from such a generic content, it dealt with a list of students on a specific course. As this website is designed to cater for the needs of thousands of people developing teaching resources etc., I was perlexed that someone should see it as appropriate to place the list of the particular students attending their particular course should use the page for this particular purpose. However rather than make any precipitous changes - bearing in mind that you, the author of this development, might have referred these self same students to this page, I felt it would be distinctly unhelpful to alter the page and potentially plunging these sutdents into confusions. Having looked at the situation in greater detail, I established a chain of dependent pages to show where I did think such a list might be appropriately placed. the first term is the educational institute, the second term is the course name you used, and the third term is "students". I see that you have rejected this structure in favour of "WP".

My problems with this are as follows:
  1. These students appertain to a particular institution, and it makes sense to make this dependent on this institution in the first place, and the course in the second place. On reflection, I feel my methodology could be criticised in that it did not specify the date or whether this was the first, second or nth course of this title. However, as information of this nature was unavailable to me, I felt that this would be something you could deal with should it become a problem.
  2. I feel that your use of "WP Students", while an improvement fails to grasp the essential problem involved in your approach. By placing your material on WikiEdukator you are making this course available to all sosrts of other people across the world. What happens if I decide to use this materialto run a course. Should I also put my details up on "WP Students"? I do not think this would be helpful. I also find that your inclusion of the "Template:Editprotected" albeit unsuccessfully indicates a certain anxiety about handling wikis. In fact, as mentioned above, I had not altered the page at all - for the reasons mentioned above. When I saw how you had completely erased the page I had created, I became concerned that you thought others would behave in precisely the way you did - erasing a page without consulting the person who had developed the page. I hope you now understand why people who suffer this treatment might feel you have treated them badly.
  3. I feel that it is unfortunate that many people have been encouraged to contribute to WikiEdukator without properly understanding what is involved. (If you are interested in a more general discussion of this, please see User:Leutha/Guidance for the Perplexed)
  4. I would ask you to reconsider the naming convention you have adopted as I feel it is likely to lead to unnecessary confusion in the future. If you feel there are problems in the naming convcention I have suggested, please share reasoned arguments for a better approach with the WikiEdukator community so that we can all find a better way of dealing with this. The alternative is losing ourself in a mire of ill-named pages. Leutha 22:39, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Dear Leutha,

At the time, I had no idea why someone would add information to my page without asking permission first. However, my goal, after understanding your good intentions, was to retrace my steps to avoid further confusion. I only wanted you to write your reasons as a way for others to also understand. I thought I had been very understanding and kind in my response. Perhaps, you did not sense my good intentions as I had expressed my gratitude to yours. In any case, I sense a bit of hostility in your tone. I hope I am wrong. Using terms such "anxiety" and deciding how I feel "about handling wikis" along with your concluding remark "I hope you now understand why people who suffer this treatment might feel you have treated them badly". I don't quite understand what this means. I appreciate your help and good intentions.

Thank you.

Warm wishes,

Nellie

Moodle for Professional Development and Training (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

What are your thoughts on using Moodle, a course management system, for professional development/training on how to use WE? I learned how to use the codes on WE on my own because I found learning via google groups confusing. I would like to offer my Moodle website for the purpose of training new members.

I am using Moodle at work - we use it as a VLE at the school I work at and also at camgtp.com - the teacher training consortium who I am with. But I want to play around with it a bit - especially on making questions and quizzes - do you have something I can learn on? I set up a 9hub account but came across your page at WE and thought I'd drop you a line - but your contact page on http://nelliemuller.reachby.com/ requires that I know your fathers middle name...?

Professional Development for Teachers and a Dissertation (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Nellie,

Randy suggested I tell you a little about me. I got carried away, but here goes. I look forward to getting to work with you if possible.

My name is Rose Ann Morris and I live and teach near San Diego, California.

I am currently pursuing my doctorate in Educational Technology online at Walden University. I hope to graduate in 2009.

I have a MA in Educational Technology from San Diego State University.

I am certified as an online instructor from the University of California at San Diego.

I have a BA in mathematics from San Diego State University.

I am credentialed by the state of California to teach mathematics, home economics, physics, geo-sciences, language acquisition, multicultural studies, and English as a second language.

I currently teach algebra and I also expect to teach English as a second language for the first time next year.

Below is my new idea for the beginning of this year if you are interested in reading it.

My current research interests are in technology use in the classroom, 21st Century skills, and professional development with emerging free and open source software products.

I am developing my first Moodle site for my classroom. I had about 200 pages in Dreamweaver that the hosting was cut due to budget cuts at the university.

I would love direction on how to teach English as a second language. I have resources in Diigo and my library to make use of, but no personal contacts that have experience. I did take classes for it in college.

My latest project for my algebra students: Algebra 1 Project Based Topics for this Teaching Module

Variables and Expressions Order of Operations Open Sentences Identity and Equality Properties The Distributive Property Commutative and Associative Properties Logical Reasoning, Conditional Statements Graphs and Functions Statistics, Tables and Graphs Rational Numbers Probability and Odds Square Roots and Real Numbers Writing/ Solving Equations Ratios and Proportions Percent Change Using Formulas Weighted Averages


The Plan To understand the plan you must first understand how I teach algebra. My students have all had algebra and failed or received a D, possibly a low C, in the 8th grade. I call my class Algebra Incorporated and all of my students are consultants.

As consultants, my students work for Algebra Incorporated, I am the CEO, and we consult on issues of concern to the global community. On the first day of a new algebra chapter, a virtual client visits and hires the class as consultants. We discuss the issues with the client and get the big picture, and with the CEO decide which four to six issues we will focus on as consultants. Once we have our issues clearly defined, we begin to study the algebra topics of the chapter. As we study algebra we discuss using this topic in relation to our job of consulting the current issues. For example, our Algebra text spends the next four chapters on graphing points, lines, inequalities, and systems, in our first semester. Being able to graph these data points allows consultants to create visual displays that are easy for their audience to make sense of and develop understanding. The hardest part of teaching the class this way is the fact that I do not have computers for my students to use in the classroom. On the days that we must have them, we must use the computer lab. Otherwise, I do have one computer, my old laptop, for student use. The Project As working consultants all students receive wages. Since they have all just recently moved to HighSchool, USA, they must find a place to live and settle into their new way of life. As this is their first job, and their first time to move out on their own, they must create a budget, furnish their homes, buy an appropriate wardrobe, learn to buy their own food and take care of their own health so that they do not miss work due to illness. Week One Consultants are given their annual salary, access to the website where they have free use of the Internet, email, Microsoft and open source software, and the document, Algebra Incorporated’s Code of Ethics and Expectations of all Algebra Incorporated Employees, An Employee’s Guide to a Successful Career. Consultants have one week (two if needed but they must move forward with week two’s work at the same time), with pay to “find” some place to live, using Google SketchUp as their real estate agent. It is required that they have a place to live that contains a home office that has 800 square feet and is no more than 20% of their entire floor plan. (Add a requirement for exercise equipment to be in this area to the document) Consultants can find the reasons for this requirement in the Expectations document on the website. Week Two and Three Once the floor plan is acceptable consultants must purchase the required wardrobe in order to prepare for starting employment at the beginning of week three. Wardrobe requirements are in the Expectations document on the website. (Add a travel ready wardrobe, luggage, etc., to the document.) To do this piece of the assignment consultants will use catalogs. These catalogs, provided by the CEO, list the country manufacturing each item. Consultants are to create a frequency chart including every country manufacturing items for each catalog. Each consultant must diagram one catalog each, in a bar diagram showing the largest volume to the least volume country. The purpose of this is to create a global awareness of where products come from, and to make a point that the United States is not high on this list. The idea being that the industrial age is over in the US, and consultants need an education to gain employment when they move out of HighSchool, USA. Week Four Now, before being work as consultants Algebra Incorporated realizes that employees all enjoy their time away from work, and look forward to their vacations. Using the same catalogs provided consultants must submit a request for their first two-week vacation. Describe all aspects of the vacation in this document, such as: 1. Destination 2. Travel expense 3. Meals 4. Housing 5. Plan for unexpected expenses while on vacation 6. Preparation required a. Purchases b. Doctors visits c. Passport, visas d. House or pet sitters e. Etc. 7. Any other considerations

As consultants can see in the Algebra Incorporated’s Code of Ethics and Expectations of all Algebra Incorporated Employees, An Employee’s Guide to a Successful Career, Algebra Incorporated likes to award employees with their vacation expenses as a reward for their hard work and perfect attendance. In order to do this, employees must submit their plan in advance for consideration. Plans may be changed or updated at any time. Week Five and Six Now that consultants have a place to live and work from home if needed, the proper wardrobe for meeting with clients, and a nice vacation planned, there is a need to remain healthy so that important work time is not lost due to illness. It is now time to get to work and meet our first client. The CEO of Algebra Incorporated has decided the first client of the year for the new consultants is Dr. Health. Dr. Health has a passion for teaching children all over the world how to eat healthy food, how to make wise nutritional choices, and how to fight obesity, which is his pet peeve. He works 365 days a year and strives to reach out to anyone under the age of twenty-five. He focuses on this group because they are still growing and developing their lifestyles. He wants these lifestyle choices to lead them to a long and healthy life full of strength and comfort. As consultants you must first learn something about nutrition in order to serve this client. To do this each consultant will: 1. Retrospectively look at their own personal eating and exercise habits 2. Use “the pantry”, as provided by the CEO, to develop menus for either weight gain, weight loss, or various diet needs as assigned by the CEO 3. Examine staple diets globally and prepare recommendations for fighting the global issue of obesity

This completes the review of Grade Seven Mathematics Standards and paves the way for the successful use of algebra vocabulary and development of abstract concepts. There is now twelve weeks of the first semester remaining to teach linear equations and systems.

Note: In order to verify that each topic has been covered I still need to develop each week’s work and clearly show instruction and assessment of the skills.

Hi Rose, Great to meet you! Thank you for listening to Randy. I had to look twice to realize it was not me. Our educational background MA and up looks very similar. I have an MAEDCT: Education specializing in curriculum and technology (MAEDCT). I am in my third year at the University of Phoenix online in educational leadership specializing in curriculum and instruction but I am researching instructor use of technology in blended learning in higher education. The only difference is I teach English to speakers of Hebrew and other languages.

For more information on how to teach EFL/ESL and get free Moodle space and support, please contact me by email.

I only saw this now???

Narendra,

I would love to learn more about the tools you have in mind.

Nellie Deutsch

←In reply to Challenges in Collaborating (1) by Nelliemuller, above:

Collaboration is initially a risk. Will a new collaborator pull her/his share of the load? The only way to find out is to take the risk. There is time invested in establishing the collaborative relationship, but the time can be rewarded if the collaboration is productive. Collaborating with someone gives you access to their skill set, and they can share yours. Collaboration can also be highly motivating and push collaborator to higher levels than they might have reached without collaboration. I find that I am more likely to sit down and write that manuscript if I know my coauthor is waiting for a draft.Dmccabe 02:00, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Nellie, Hi

I would like to bring you in touch with a teacher in Bilbao. You will have seen her post and my suggestion of creating a project for the classroom on WikiEducator using her students and finding other students and a teacher interested in collaborating, thereby creating content on WikiEducator that could be used by others and creating a teacher/student network throughout the Commonwealth. Here is her email address, and feel free to use the Wikieducator discussion forum, to communicate, to enable others to contribute to the idea and work for best results. That would actually be fantastic!!!!
