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 We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.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

I am re-reading Gödel Escher Bach, mainly because of my interest in Maths and Music. Even 10 years after publication, it's still very relevant and I suddenly see things I never noticed before.

I think my book-based PLN is summed up by the list I posted in my blog, on Sunday funnily enough! This kind of activity seems to work very well with students. Maybe something to encourage here too! Ten books that sum me up http://bit.ly/cLDFCW

I have just begun to read IBrain to expand my knowledge on the Digital Natives that are restless within our classrooms. It is amazing to know that our brains are changing the way they function to meet the external demands our world has placed upon us. The authors note that not all of the exposure to technology has positive results and yet our world is rapidly changing creating a need for neuroscience to catch up. I'll get back to you after I read a few more chapters.

I love this group! The only problem is that all the discussions in it are interesting!

I've started by Aaron's "Catching up or leading the way" and at least following Mark's "Blogs, wikis..." and an in-between involvement in David's "The Dumbest generation"
