The Tutor/Mentor Intern blog, started by Michael Tam in 2006, has been averaging more than 8600 visits per month for the past 6 months of 2021. I hope that leads to many universities wanting to create Tutor/Mentor Connection teams that do exactly the same work as interns did for me between 2006 and 2015. If the university is in Chicago it could focus on the Chicago region, but if it's in another city, or country, the focus would be on that city or country.
I posted this invitation today on the Intern blog. Take a look.
I encourage any who are still following this group to visit this post and see how a 2018 on-line and place based class is asking learners to use blogs and other visualizations to introduce themselves, connect with each other, etc. http://netnarr18.miazamoraphd.com/uncategorized/netnarr-means-inter...
Look at all the introductions and comments posted since 2008 in the discussion forum for this group and you'll find some similar goals.
Since the problems we were focused on in 2008 and earlier are still with us, and the Internet has grown as a meeting place it only takes new leaders to re-energize the work that was done in past years on this forum.
Here's an article showing students in Hong Kong involved in community mapping. http://www.gettingsmart.com/2017/11/building-student-ownership-thro...
Happy to see Daniel and Michael join this group. I'm hopeful we'll have an intern from IIT join in the Jan-Feb 2018 cycle. While you're looking around here, I encourage you to follow the #clmooc Twitter feed of a network of educators I've connected with and see how they are interacting. I hope to create similar interactions among people I connect to via the Tutor/Mentor Connection networks and web sites.
I've not had interns working with me since early 2015 due to lack of funds. However, I continue to connect with others from many states and countries and encourage educators to engage students in creating new interpretations of the ideas on my web sites, just as have interns since 2006. I'll keep posting links to articles and ideas in this space, to stimulate the creativity of those who take on this role. Here's an article, titled "Metaphorical event management is born", which offers some new ideas for visualization and design. Take a look.
I've been participating in the 2015 Making Learning Connected MOOC and there's some really exciting work being done by participants who have been looking at graphics created by myself and interns, and then have created new versions, with their own interpretations. This blog is one example.
I encourage members of the Tutor/Mentor Connection Ning to join in MOOCs like this. Expand your network and learn new ways to share ideas and build networks that focus on issues in your own geographic areas of the world.
http://youtu.be/xyb8hYSZPN8 This video is one of a series created by Gene Bellinger to map systemic thinking. In this one he shows a process of "building a better tomorrow" which I support with the information I've aggregated on Tutor/Mentor Connection web sites since 1998. Since there is so much information on the web sites, I createdthis map, to provide a guide that a learner might take through this information, at least to get started. I think that videos such has Gene has created could be used to guild people through my own learning guide. I don't have the manpower to do this so seek interns and volunteers who would help.
Hi Kyungryul, It's good to hear from you. Two new interns will be starting on January 8 and one is a friend of yours. I do remember your interest in basketball. I hope the internship is going well. I also hope you and others will make an effort to stay connected to me and each other via this forum and that you'll continue to create interpretations of the information and ideas so others will adopt them in their own actions.
Hi, Daniel! What's going on?
I'm still student, but taking a semester off to do an intern at a basketball magazine. Do you remember I like basketball?
World is still far. I'm sorry that I should have paid attention about connection, volunteer, communication with others. Maybe, you are trying to close gap to connect with people in the world.
T/MC Internship was good experience. especially, the conference at June.
If I'm there, I would like to communicate with them again.
I really appreciate, and hope to meet you. Happy New year!
One of the participants at the June 7 Tutor/Mentor Conference in Chicago was a parent of a 13 year old boy murdered on a street corner in Chicago. I created this set of maps to show how parents and activist can use the Program Locator to map where violence takes place, and to mobilize community leaders to support the growth of programs that can reduce further violence. YouthViolence_stopIT.pdf Young people in high schools and colleges could be creating visualizations like this to mobilize leaders and resources to support the growth of mentor-rich programs in areas with high poverty, and high violence.
