Web 2.0 TOOLS - TCC2008

Dear friends

Here are a few more web 2.0 tools for you to try. I learn't about these at the TCC2008 online conference this year.

Other things to try:

Roll Play a peace garden using terms such as 'peace tree', 'friendship benches', 'path of peace', 'solving water issues' to create a story.

Visit CIA World Factbook for how the world works.

Earth Day April 22, 2008

Dear friends

Earth Day, the one that most people know about, is next week on April 22, 2008. Julia has the privilege to speak to several high schools at Niagara Falls, in Ontario, Canada. The students are part of Schools in Bloom. They have planted many species of vegetation. I am talking about the role of peace parks and gardens, of working working peace and environment together, and learning about survival on planet earth.

I have created another slide show for them. If you can't find it here, then look on the slide show page on the IHTEC website.

China celebrated Earth Day with a stamp. You can find it on this blog.

Maybe you can design an Earth Day stamp for your school.

Sacred Tree from India

Hallo again

Children (girls) at the Sandipani Muni School, Vrindavan, India are making sacred trees, and a friend sent me one of these. The children are the poorest of the poor, and they are doing this is to raise money for their education at school. The trees are called "Kalpa Vriksha Trees" made from old copper wire, with amethysts and other gems strung onto the end of the wire. The wooden beads are made fron the Tulsai Devi tree, a very sacred tree in India. I think it is very beautiful, don't you?

Maybe you too can create a sacred tree, which represents your country. Use any kind of craft.
