A crash course in changing the world.
Paul, thanks for sharing with us the way you are using EVOKE. That's wonderful! I'm not a teacher anymore, but I am very interested in working with teachers who are using EVOKE or games like it. I'll contact you off this thread to see if I can be of any help, or if you don't need help, to see if it's OK for me to just take part in your conversations. Thanks for inviting other teachers to join you. Very exciting!
Hi Kevin, and thanks for adding your voice to the mix. I'm Ninmah in Second Life, too (Ninmah Ash). A learning center in Second Life would be a great place for conversations, simulations, resources... Would you like to head up this effort? Or just help? Either way, if you haven't already, list it on the teacher wiki page and let's see who else might be interested in working on that. Great idea!
Calling all teachers. I just wanted to share with you this link from an article in the Guardian Online newspaper. It tells of a fabulous initiative set-up by the equally fabulous Professor Sugata Mitra (of "H*** in the Wall" computers fame). If you are not aware of his work then I also implore you to find out more about his amazing projects.
My name is Joseph Nadler. I'm an English and Legal Studies teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I'm passionate about human rights and I'm a giant nerd. Hence my presence here. I'll make my way to the wiki as soon as I can!
