Users of Blackboard Collaborate
Next Vista for Learning (http://nextvista.org) has been building a free, online library of videos by and for teachers and students everywhere for the last five years. The videos cover academic topics, career possibilities, communities around the world, and the joy and meaning of serving others.
In tossing our hat in the We Collaborate ring, our hope is to tap into the creativity of the 7000+ teachers on our mailing list by using a Blackboard Collaborate room to hold regular meetings on how to get students using digital media. Our goal is to have the students around the world create videos that help their peers, rich and poor, better learn what they encounter in school. We believe that poor students anywhere in the world can use the tools now available to show that they, too, have something to give others.
I thank you for reading this post and considering supporting our effort with your vote.
