Hi Jordan!


Actually – you ARE in the right place! J and the folks here tend to be the ones who facilitate for the K12 schools, although not necessarily IN the K12 schools. But this is also the same group that deals with Higher Eds that are not research institutions, museums, libraries and healthcare.


I don’t know how to help filter out some of the higher ed talk, but we can discuss it at the executive level to see if we do need to figure out how to further split the list.


At this point we don’t have a good announcements only method – but you should be noting programming related to even K-8 Internet2 use on the K20-advise list. For example, the Christmas Tree Ship programs were posted here, as were the many great Magpie programs – most of which require I2 connectivity to participate.


Give us a chance to discuss this a bit. We’ll brainstorm, and get something back to you directly, or through the list. If it does work for you, then just let us know and we can drop you from the list.


BTW: You may be interested in joining Muse ( and looking over the database of programs there. Indicate that you are looking for K5 partnerships and programs.


Thanks for your contact!

Dan, I get emails like the megaconference open mic call and have no idea what you are talking about.  I got on this email list for K-20 internet 2 and it seems that the people on this list are not elementary teachers. I hear about "Travel" and meetings in "Second Life", events but I don't have the money to travel nor does the school district. The travel events seems to be tailored to College level personel and Second Life doesn't function well on any of our computers. And we have new dell computers.  I just want to know what is happening in the K-5 arena with internet2 and I don't want to hear about Higher Ed events or discussions.  Do you recommend another group or is this the right group-but nobody wants to talk elementary? 


Background: I have been teaching computers literacy to K-5 students in a computer lab for 12 years.
