Profile Information

Rocky Shwedel
About Me:
I'm an associate professor of education at Salem State University. I teach introductory research methods for master's level educators and computer literacy for undergraduate preservice teachers.

I have co-led two groups of students to conduct fieldwork in Liberia, most recently to introduce XO computers to high school students as part of a larger initiative to foster peace and reconciliation among Liberian youths.

I am also the School of Education Faculty Assessment Coordinator.

And I take my trusty beagle for walks in all kinds of weather! :)
Interest in Flat Connections
Most immediately, I am interested in setting up a collaborative project with another school of education, preferably outside of the U.S.A., to have preservice teachers from both institutions explore and document teaching practices and teacher training practices in each locale. I see this project as a starting point for both for increased cross-cultural understanding among the students and as a means to enhance their computer literacy skills and confidence. I also see it a a way for me to enhance my skills and network with other educators.

You don't mean Salem State University in Massachusetts do you?  My sister is a professor at Salem State.  Her daughter has taken on the school I work with in Africa as their high school senior project.  Love to find out more about you, your projects and how NGGE can help you achieve them.  Please feel free to  contact me at ngge.k12@gmail.com.

Hi Allan,

Thanks for the connection! Yes, Barb and I are excited about the project for our pre-service teachers. We will certainly post our experience and results here on the Ning and other areas. We look forward to comments.

Alan, Thanks for heads up re possible Ning glitch. I will keep an eye on it. We can also submit a trouble ticket.

Welcome to our Flat Classrooms network Allan, we are delighted to have you join us. Teacher educators gather in this group. I especially encourage you to connect with Eva Brown in Canada and Barbara Morganfield in the USA. Let's stay in touch as teacher education and flattened learning is top of my list this year!
