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 We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.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

I just started having my students embed google forms in our graphing unit wiki to gather information for them to use in excel spreadsheets to form graphs.

@Shirly Miller

I've been using blogger with my classes as well and run into similar issues. I post an article for them to read every week and they need to respond to it in the comments. I orginally was going to have them respond on pages for the class period they are in, but couldn't get comments to work there.

You can tag them, or give them a category, which will make it easier to group them across pages.

not sure if I helped or just comisserated..

Since Blogger is a Google tool, I thought I'd try asking my question here:

I'm using blogger/blogspot and I'm wondering if there is a way to put student posts in categories. Maybe a folder for each week's responses? I've been putting up discussion questions as "pages" can the responses some how be connected by page? I've also noticed that student responses don't show up on their profile page. Is this standard? I've looked through the help section and can't find anything about this. Student posts aren't even on their profile page! I've used ning and wiki with my classes, this is my first time to use a blog.

Wondering if anyone has ideas on how to have students start using Google Docs to collaborate - I have only a limited amount of computer time in a day at the school and wanted to get a group of students that I do not see very often, up and using Google Docs.
Wondering if there are any presentations, videos, etc. that might be useful to show students so I could get them working with this format.

I have a question about Google's legal documents stating that the users can not be under 18 or something similar and how can students in lower grades use the apps without violating and laws, notices, etc.

Has anyone had any issues with Google Apps for Education? I am wondering, and my districts main concern, is support.
