Hey, Zzzzz Schomer here.

I think that it may not be quite clear enough to some of the people here that this is where they should go to find a buddy....

Incidentally, I need a buddy...

Introduction and Greetings from LA
« Reply #4 on: January 14, 2008, 03:20:35 AM »
Greetings to the Schome community,

I am delighted to participate in such an innovative and creative project.  I look forward to great things.

I am the technology teacher at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts.  I have been teaching for many years, but only five in the field of technology (the rest in the performing arts).

Nineteen of my students will also be participating in activities on the island.  My focus in on any new international collaborative media projects.  We have just finished creating videos for the Flat Classroom Project, and my students took five first places in the contest.  In past years, students have produced award-winning podcasts and multimedia projects.  Working with future artists provides a quality opportunity to fuse art with technology in many ways.

We work on mac computers running 10.4.10, equipped with built-in audio and video.  Because we are on the campus of California State University, we sometimes have problems with firewalls; however, we are usually able to find ways to work around them.

To date, I have not entered Schome Park, but I am anxious to get started.  Because we are all newbies, I beg for your patience.  We will make many mistakes, but we will learn and hope to contribute to the community.  We would like to join existing projects in Schome Park and perhaps create our own.

I would appreciate a buddy to help get acquainted. Thanks so much for this exciting opportunity.

    Hi Thespian - in-world acting - could link with machinima - or acting out bits of books (which is something we talked about in Phase 1 but I don't think we ever got around to doing).

    And you are the second person recently who has talked about liking singing - I have high hopes that we will get Vibia to sing in Phase 3 ...

    If you have thoughts about the kinds of things we ought to be doing in Schome Park then tell us about them - you can find out some of the stuff we are thinking about doing - and see when events are actually taking place from the Schome Park Events page.

    Would solving the multiplication of two 2 digit numbers in less than ten seconds count as a talent. ;)

    I'm not sure how many people would want to watch me do it, especially as it would be over a computer in which I could cheat rather easily.  :)
