Welcome to the Global Education Collaborative Ning Community

At the National Educational Computing Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia this June, fellow ADE Julene Reed and I will be hosting a workshop on global collaboration. I plan on utilizing a variety of tools and resources throughout this hands-on class, including Ning, a service that allows one to establish a custom social networking site.

I've made a few prior attempts at creating an online meeting space for those interested in global collaboration which included the establishment of a .Mac group and a blog. While I still plan on posting to these resources, I think this environment might be more inviting because it allows for the posting of photos, videos, and RSS feeds. Users can make their own custom personal pages, contribute to discussion forums, network with other like-minded individuals, and comment on these features. I've been inspired by the success of Steve Hargadon's Classroom 2.0 and School 2.0 Ning communities, particularly by the forum conversations in the Classroom 2.0 one.

I also hope that this will also serve as a hub for my fellow ADEs who will be presenting at NECC on various global education topics. Please consider uploading any relevant files including presentation slides. You can upload presentations slide to sites such as SlideShare and Scribd, which I think, will give you the html code to embed here as a video. If you need help with this, just let me know.. it's pretty easy. Of course, you can probably also save slideshows as Quicktime files and upload them directly, too.

Please let me know if you have any questions... you can reach me via email at elemenous@gmail.com and via instant messaging. My AIM name is elemenous.

Thanks!

Dear Lucy,

You have been an amazing organizer, and leader so I would love to follow you. I have learned a lot from this conference and I am willing to continue with these types of activities. I saw that I can do these types of presentations really easily, so maybe in the future I will.

Thank You for your great effort. You've been really amazing!
