Extractions: I included my areas of interest in the subject line, but my interests are not limited to those three areas. I recently completed an M.Ed. in Adult Education and Literacy, then left my job as a correctional special eductor and moved to a technical high school. Next year, I believe I will be teaching resource math at the high school I aslo teach math for Delaware's adult education program distance education program - James H. Groves, Diploma at a Distance. I have just started an Ed.D. in Educational Technology at the University of Delaware. The summer class I am taking is Computer-Supported Collaboration in Educational Reform Development -or- Computer-Supported Collaboration for Improvement of Curriculum and Teaching . One assignment is to develop a syllabus for a class for teachers for collaboration using technology. I would like to post the syllabus online. I would appreciate suggestions for site to post it, as well as suggestions from this group toward the topic in general. I plan to start out doing two .. one dedicated to collaboration between distant educators and the other to math/special educators. I do not know how much information there is "out there" regarding collaboration between teachers in those two specific areas.

Extractions: he kids in the children's section at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington must wonder about Bill Bintz and Sara Moore. The two UK College of Education professors can be found there often, excitedly passing new books back and forth and piling up the "gotta haves." "Sara, have a look at One Woolly Wombat ! This might go along nicely with Bat Jamboree see what you think." "Great! And take a look at this one, Bill Counting Crocodiles . Maybe a companion to One Cow Laughing ?" But for the "biggest kids in children's books," as Bintz refers to the two of them, it's all in a day's work. "When Bill and I go to a conference, we're all over any used bookstores we can find," says Moore, who holds a Ph.D. in gifted education from the University of Virginia. "He's looking for engaging narratives, and I'm focusing on how accurate the math and science are." Such fieldwork is the basis for a collaborative project designed to support teachers in learning to use high-quality and award-winning children's literature to teach mathematical and scientific principles. The project, which is being funded by an Eisenhower Grant, is a collaboration between UK and the Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative. During the grant period, from January 2002 to June 2003, Moore and Bintz will work with approximately 75 teachers in grades four through eight from 35 counties in Eastern Kentucky. "Many children don't have a context for understanding science and math," says Bintz, who came to UK from James Madison University in 1997 and who specializes in inquiry-based learning and teaching, reading across the curriculum, and curriculum development. "Good literature gives them that context and 'eases' them into the math and science. Children think in narrative terms, so we're simply building on that strength."

Extractions: Welcome to the MIT Electronic Forum on Educational Innovation! The purpose of the Forum is to provide a clearinghouse for information on educational experimentation and innovation at MIT. If you are interested in creating new curricula, using innovative pedagogical techniques, experimenting with educational technologies, or improving assessment and evaluation, use the Forum to find faculty, administators, graduate and undergraduate students at the Institute who have experience in the area in which you are working.
