Off to Nicaragua tomorrow. Exciting Action Research project will begin tomorrow.
Working with Colorado Technical University in partnership with a nonprofit group (Inner Change Works) my students will provide assessment, strategy assistance and intervention design for an ongoing computer donation program which provided 300+ computers to schools, libraries, health centers, and prisons in Nicaragua. We will travel toNicaragua for one week to observe, study, hold workshops and collect data. An online course was designed and implemented which extends the “live classroom” atmosphere in the country and when we return to our homes. The online part of the blended course provides discussion forums, readings, materials, and applications, pertaining to the implications of cross cultural research and the practice of assessment observations, interviews and data collection techniques. We are all using social media to report on our experiences and any projects that result.
