Global Virtual Classroom Update -- Earlier this month, I mentioned my involvement supporting the Global Virtual Classroom project. Just thought you might be interested that as we approach the deadline (September 29) for application to the GVC Contest, which will involve teams of three schools from three different countries in web design projects, we've got almost 60 schools from 22 countries signed up. They range from the Upper West Side of Manhattan and Hong Kong to Mali to Uzbekistan to Australia and Belgium. Cool. I can't wait to see what they all put together. We're still looking for corporate sponsors that would allow us to add features for next year's contest and for the "clubhouses" to be opened later next month by helping us get out of a near-free co-op server we're using, and to offer the schools better prizes. If anyone out there has any clout with your company's philanthropic side, send them to the GVC site so they can see for themselves.
