This podcast begins with a focus on the work of two technology teachers and two students from The Baccalaureate School for Global Education
(BSGE) in Astoria, NY. Madeline Brownstone and Shantanu Saha describe
their two-year technology curriculum that has students doing global,
Madeline and Shantanu have been working with
schools here in the US through the New York City Writing Project and
World Bridges/EdTechTalk. And their students have been participating in
a project with a school in the Netherlands with iEarn.
their students have also begun working with teachers and students
involved with the Horizon Project,
which was founded by Vikki Davis and Julie Lindsay. Listen to hear how
these teachers and students integrate these national and international
projects with the curricular expectations of a technology
concentration that leads to an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
That might be enough, but Madeline and Shantanu and their students also
found wonderful ways to relate their work to the collaborative study of
rural culture that is being planned by Lee Baber in Virginia and Woody
Woodgate in Alaska. Woody tells his students that they are natives of
Alaska and the digital worlds.
In this podcast we explore all of these ways of connecting urban, rural, global, and digital youths!
This spring Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison are experimenting again. This time with Hypertextopia. We have just begun to explore with our students how writing changes in this online environment.
To learn more, we invited Mark Bernstein and Jeremy Ashkenas to have a conversation with us.
Mark Bernstein has been Eastgate's chief scientist since 1987. He has developed Storyspace and other hypertext software, and he is the publisher of wonderful hypertexts.
Jeremy Ashkenas is working on Hypertextopia as a part of his final project for his undergraduate degree at Brown University.
We were inspired to invite the spunky programmer/publisher to talk with the upstart literature/computer undergrad after reading through this recent thread on if:Book.
Listen to learn more about hypertext writing online, and join us at Hypertextopia!
