Ever have a great project idea and were not able to actually start or complete it? We talked about those projects with John Fladd, a colleague of Maria's. What is it that prevents us from seeing a project to fruition?

This week we started talking about the impact of the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Real-time science connections! This led to Earthcast, a 24 hour webcast on Earth Day, April 22. The Earthcast will be hosted on Worldbridges on the Earthbridges channel. We were able to get a few more people to sign up to participate, in fact all three Conversations hosts will be participating! What will your school, organization or you do on Earth Day?

While LIsa was with visiting relatives, Maria and Sheila co-hosted the show. We discussed school design, classroom design and classroom decorations. We started looking at a middle school that has bright colors and bold slogans from a Fast Company article of March 24, 2010. We also shared photos of classrooms in Belize. The Belizeans created inviting atmospheres in their rooms with very few supplies.
