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 We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.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

Hi Steven, We offer almost all of our onground classes online, and then a few online that we don't have onground. The majority of our students are onground students who take one or two classes online. We do have full time online students and we also have students who do not attend our school who take one or two classes with us, like from public schools.  Our full timers are usually professional athletes, home schoolers, or families who want a Christian education and there is not a Christian school close to them.

Our teachers are mostly credentialed teachers who are stay at home moms, some retirees, and a few full time teachers who want to work more and/or be involved in online teaching. We do have a few teachers who teach full time on our ground campus and then also teach a class online.

Do you teach for one school or do you work for a number of schools? What grade level do you teach? How long have you been in online education? What LMS are you currently using?

We are using Angel and I really love it, but with it being bought by Blackboard we are looking at other options.

In any of your classes do you have a live element?

Looks like this could be a fun group :)  Thanks for starting it.!

Welcome, Diane.  The group is quite new.  I would like to use the group to share ideas related to online teaching, constructivist learning, etc.  I teach online and am always interested in hearing what other online programs are doing.  Generally speaking, I would like to think that this could become a networking area for those involved in online teaching / learning and those looking to get involved.  What kind of online courses are offered through your school?  Do students generally attend the ground high school and take select courses online?  Do you have any fully online students?  Do your online teachers exclusively teach online or do they teach a combination of ground and online courses?

HI, I am a part of Orange Lutheran Online. We are an online high school that is a part of a ground high school.  I train and supervise our online teachers, and manage curriculum and schedules...  What's going on in this group?

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood…See More
