a professional web designer, doing development, graphics, programming, and many other things. I've almost entirely worked in marketing and a wee bit in health (Georgia Division of Public Health, the CDC, Glaxo-Wellcome).
I'm also kinda sick of selling things. So come this summer, I am starting on a BA in Education at Lesley University, with a minor in Media Studies, with a goal of taking a decade of web running, and all the skills developed there, and turning it towards developing educational tools for the 'digital natives'. I'm not a digital native myself, but I got my first computer when I was 10, and taught myself to program over a Christmas break when we were pretty much snowed in. So though I'm still in my 30s, I've been programming computers for almost 30 years, having started when I was in grade school. I'm hoping that might give me some kinship while developing for the new batch of kids.
My nephew is 6.He hates the tiny bits of homework they're giving him already, naturally. Last year, when he was 5, I went to visit, and was showing him a Pokemon wiki. He was reading it, and suddenly declared, "That's wrong!", and I explained to him, "Well, we can fix it, then!". I spent an hour with him, talking him through finding something that showed he was right, editing the page (I typed), and showing him how to cite something so people would know it was right. He took to it like a duck to water, and was totally thrilled to know that he had added something to the internet - that it wasn't just something you read passively.
That got me thinking about how he hates homework, but *loved* doing research when it was something really relevant to what he's passionate about. I started to develop a few other things, that take the stuff people are doing right now for fun (geocaching, ARGs, CCGs, room escape games, etc), that would have a more educational bent, while not turning them into "educational materials". Parts of it are surprisingly easy, and some parts I'm bashing my head on!
Anyway, that's where I'm at right now. I'm don't have a lot to say on educational aspects, yet, but I do have a lot of technical expertise, and hope to offer it while learning the other side.…
is sinking the country down.By the way, the old "enemy" Russia has no debt. Even the Bible in Ecclesiast says that there is a different time for everything.
There is no collaborative intelligence in Health Care approach!
There are no scientists who would look at the history and practice! Only the conservative radio quoted it, not the government!
I can tell you that in a socialist Russia there were 5 times more doctors then anywhere in the world, people were coming to doctors with any concern, sneezing, or being upset. Not a single hospital denies a visit from a homeless or unemployed patient. Unemploymment and nonuniform coverage as well a a freedom to have or not to have insurance that is what we have now. When all people will be equal and Amerika will be a socialist country, when the government with or without collaborative intelligence will decide what people should do, things will definitely be different..…
