The World's Story is Yours to Tell
Sounds good Dan. I teach English, photography, and video in Utah. What are some of the other/topics concepts you are thinking about? One of the things I was thinking about is doing something around education. For instance, what if some of my students were to talk about 1) what they've learned recently and 2) something they'd like to see improve in education. I also have some students interested in environmental issues and things like the Occupy movement. Let's talk more. We'd like to collaborate.

Hi Chris! My students are going to be filming for the project ... some of them are focused on global issues, and others have developed other topics/concepts appropriate for the purpose of the One Day on Earth documentary. We're open to collaborating on the project - at the very least we could share footage and connect students to discuss their learning experiences in different parts of the world.
Let me know if you're interested. I've got a group - Mr. K's Classroom, and am working at an American School in southern Taiwan.
Great news, Rogelio. For sure, let's share. I only just found out about this project late last week, so my students are just brainstorming right now. So far, they're pretty excited about the project. I've been showing some of the staff picks to them, and we've been discussing both the technical merit (since I teach photography and film), and also the content (since my students are very much interested in environmental issues, for instance, and in some of the careers that are profiled in the 10.10.10 videos).
On 11.11.11 some of my students will be focusing on what they actually learn in school and what ideas they have to improve education. Maybe some of your students could do the same? When we're done, I'm sure my students and yours could have some interesting conversations around what they "learned about learning" at their local level.
By the way, estoy tratando de aprender Español.

Hi Katy. Yes my students would be interested in collaborating. We're also filming our day in school on 11.11.11. We'll be focusing on a couple of questions: 1) what are you learning in school, and 2) how could education be improved? After we're done, we could compare videos and have some conversations. How does that sound?

Hello Chris, hope this group is still alive. My students are planning to video tape life in our school this 11/11 and we would love to work in some extra project or do some coenction with other school from around the world. We are from Jujuy Argentina. We can do some activity with your students if like. Let me know if you have any idea. Ok
