Is there a need for training to teach teachers how to use Moodle for specific subjects eg How to use Moodle for Social Studies, How To Use Moodle for Science ?

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 We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.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

Has anyone used the "parent plug in" with Moodle. We have our students using Moodle but would like parents to access Moodle to view course syllabi, assignment lists, daily announcements, and other links. Is there such a thing and if so is it difficult to install? How do we issue the parent passwords? I would appreciate any feedback provided from experienced users.

Our school would like to be able to add the Moodle logo or modify it with our mascot to our front visitors page but are not sure how to go about doing that. Any suggestions on how to develop a front visitors page that doesn't just come up with the standard log on screen?

I've used Moodle as a course participant only, but have found it very user-friendly, just like Jasna points out.

thanks for the presentation, Lorette. It's nice to have the basics of Moodle clearly stated and I also appreciate the list of free hosted Moodle sites
Comment by Lorette Weldon on March 7, 2010 at 10:01am
I am planning a free online discussion on the usage of Moodle in the classroom. Would you all be interested in it? We would be able to share experiences and go through the basics of a typical Moodle account.
Comment by Barbara McCormick on February 19, 2010 at 12:42am
We have just begun to use Moodle as our learning management system. All the teachers and students have been given user ID information. One of our lead teachers is the administrator of Moodle. She posts current events and important docs on the front page and set up all the courses. Mini training sessions have been underway since January. We look forward to expanding the use of Moodle!

Offer a communication channel between you and your studen ts through Moodle. Feel free to look at my courses that I offer as an online community service to the public to help them with a professional learning network and SharePoint at

The sky is the limit with what you can do to help your students and colleagues!!!!.

I am using Moodle for a couple of years now. I started using it in grad school and designed an online course with it. Now, I am using it in my district to share documentation with our teachers. I find it very user friendly.

Keys to Change Leadership

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge. Systemic, meaningful change from an environment of rote learning to the collaborative nature in a 1:1 environment can be met with resistance. With his experience as an implementation change agent, Dr. Dillon served as coach, mentor and guide for school leaders and School Improvement Teams embarking on this change.As the picture of how to best support…See More

I thought I'd eventually be out of a job.

I ask a student to attach a file to an email and I get a blank stare.I tell the class to open a new tab so they have two websites open at the same time and I have to show them how to do that a few times.I assume that since they are growing up with technology they naturally know how to use it, but I am shown on a daily basis that this is not the case. They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
