In addition to an individual blog and podcasts, all DESI 436 and SCOM 407 students will be contributing to a shared (and public) wiki site – the high profile  WikiEducator project. We have been invited to sign up for a free, short, online Learning4Content course, which runs from 22 March – 2 April, 2010.  Before the class on Monday 15 March, please visit the Learning4Content course page, and register for the workshop, or go directly to the Registration Page to and sign up there. You will need to create a Username and Password here, first (it’s free to join). While you are there, have a look at the Research Page. How useful is this information? What is missing? What can you imagine adding?

    Thank you, Carl, and greetings from the bottom of the world (or pretty near the bottom).
    I’m pleased that your name is linked to your blog (http://startsathome.wordpress.com/). I have had a look – it is a terrific project and a very useful blog. All the best from Dunedin, New Zealand!

      The Wiki education process is wonderful and sure to grow. Thank you for visiting http://startsathome.wordpress.com. We’re concerned about nurturing children and helping families with children under seven years of age. Due to our busy schedules and more materialism, our children were left behind. And now a new challenge is cyber bullying.

      Aloha Faafetai,

        Hi Carl

        I have two boys (aged 7 and 10), and we have been discussing cyber bullying. A few days ago, our elder son asked “what is sexual grooming?” after seeing stories in the newspaper about children that are subjected to unwanted attention online that they don’t understand. It is good to see that the “Starts at Home” program provides alternatives to unsupervised online media and experiences.

    Hi Mark:

    That’s a good sign when your boys come to you for questions. Dr. Michelle Borba may have some answers for you pertaining to cyber bullying. http://www.micheleborba.com/blog/2010/04/07/michele-borba-blog-9-signs-of-cyberbullying-you-must-watch-out-for-in-kids/ On the subject of sex grooming, I’m not familiar with that phrase. In any case, you teaching the boys them about sex is good. One of the classes we’re planning is early sex education before seven; the classes will teach children about conservative views on sex, then it’ up to them to choose then opportunities arise. Without concerned parenting advise, the world may have it’s challenging way.

    Aloha,
    Carl Okuyama
