Hello,

The network of sites that I am developing is based upon International InterCultural communications [ Note the capitalization of " C : in Inter" C "ultural is deliberate. ] as an effective means to attract both the academic markets as well as those who have higher education and related cultural experiences. Asia is an important facet in world affairs, and the priority of any effort which is International in scope must have its inclusion.  Moreover, it is crucial that those who are not experienced in various Asian cultures, and various habits, and among which are their idiom expressions --- both written and oral, must be learned as a top priority.  

It was based upon my efforts which I made an alarrming discovery of the internal sensitive nature of the Asian nations' personal awareness of views of American sexist attitudes towards Asians in general; this is highlighted in the extreme of their awareness of American views about Bangkok's image.  And its Bangkok's American image ' First ' which must be repaired as a vital InterCultural re-education of its peoples, civic codes of cultural support, family centered cultural activities and entertainment, and Thai - academia;s role social and cultural function in the adjacent communities [ Note the plural. ], as well as it leadership goals for Bangkok's future development.

It is more than probable that once this is achieved first on the web and then in the academic related circles, then the Asian community of nations will start to see the real possibility of a change in America's view towards Asians has a whole - with families, real cultural icons which represents the Asian performing artists, future aspirations, and the personal goals of its peoples.

Any informational about Bangkok's family centered ' only ' activities and academic social and cultural programs you are aware of should be included in reports of your interests in this groups as per now recommended.

We really need to start to make long term Multi - National Asian friends, as the future will be theirs by the escalating economic power they now enjoy.

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is: www.twitter.com/rosselmulaire

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

I direct a non-profit with a mission to support persons with disability and K-12 education. Special education is at their intersection and of special interest. My organization is the Enabling Support Foundation We am working on two projects which I would like to present to you.

We are developing a site on comparative Special Education. What are differences throughout the world in how students with physical, sensory, and intellectual disabilities are treated? This project has just begun but there is a Cross Cultural center on the ESF website and a forum for its discussion.

The second project is student oriented. It is an examination of the mythologies, architecture, art and culture of ancient civilizations. It is not so much a project but a series of resources that can be used to create a multitude of projects. You can see these resources at http://teachersconnecting.com/?q=node/755

We welcome collaboration.

I feel that the more students discover the history of art and create art as part of their life style they will become better citizens of their village, country and the world. With that in mind I am creating an online art history course which can be found at ahaafoundation.org

This is intended to teach the development of the history of art around the world and the Asia Society could play a huge role by collaborating with this foundation.

If those of you who take a look at ahaafoundation.org will get back to me great things could happen.
