The Diamondback the newspaper (online) of the University of Maryland, is the original source of the report of the phenomenon I referred to earlier today – that blog use may replace email list servers, at least in the university environment.
In preparing to make recommendations for an upcoming event at the University of California in Irvine, I took a look at the relative desirability of using a blog rather than using an email listserver to facilitate interaction in a large group of people.
Kemmy Lim, one of our curriculum volunteers, located a good online reference yesterday, which I think is exemplary at least of the form in which we hope to present our Curriculum for Ethics and Peace at a future date. The web site cultivating peace is that of a Canadian group Classroom Connections which began in 1997 as a local educational support organization in Ontario. It has provided resources to teachers in 75% of school districts nation-wide.
And there’s a great online example of how a topic within the curriculum might be made available. This example is a Lesson overview where each topic is described, there’s an overview, and there are links (URLs) to handouts, overheads, articles, and even videos (though they don’t have videos online, as we hope to do that for short ones).
It is my hope that we can document our curriculum this well!
