In the early 1990s I became aware of something called Group Systems, which was a meeting facilitation aid, where everyone used computers to brainstorm ideas, then to organize and vote on them. In this Feb 2020 blog article I include a quote from a 2000 article about group systems.
Much has changed since the 1990s. Today I participated in a webinar…Continue

I post messages daily intended to draw visitors to my blogs and use hashtags like #tutor #mentor #learning to narrow the focus.
This week I learned about Wakelet which is a platform to archive and share collections of Tweets, based on specific #hashtags.
This graphic shows five collections on my page that I created in just a few minutes.

I started this forum in 2007 when platforms like Ning were a new way to meet, connect and share ideas. While a few people still join every year the forum has not been very active for a few years.
However, I still use it to archive work done in the past and to maintain connections for those who did join.
I created this graphic recently to show how an idea…

I created the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 as part of a non-profit organization that also was creating a site-based tutor/mentor program serving teens in the Cabrini-Green neighborhood of Chicago. I created the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011 to keep the T/MC strategy going in Chicago and share it with other cities after support for the strategy was discontinued in…Continue

I hope you are doing great as well, especially under the current pandemic, and appreciate your warm welcoming! I've been very busy with life. But I've managed to find my post and work coincidentally from google search, so here I joined.
Right after my exchange student experience in Chicago, I transferred to Arizona State University and finished my degree there. Thankfully, I was able to get a job in Phoenix as a Software Engineer and now I'm settled down in Phoenix, AZ.
I would love to visit Chicago sometime soon and talk!
The article on Rio describes very well what is happening.
And your report is very important, also.
One of the worst obstacles to social justice in Brazil has been judicial inequality.
It would be worth trying to translate this short article from a known doctor who works in prisons in the city of São Paulo, here http://www1.folha.uol.com.br/colunas/drauziovarella/2017/08/1907201-desigualdade-judiciaria.shtml.
I appreciated very much the link for the CLMOOC and will participate.
I've been reading your posts for one week (since you viewed my profile in Linkedin) and as I start to understand the TMC's principles, I become more and more interested. I work as a sociology teacher in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, and I think the kind of approach you propose is totally original here, so I'm a begginer.
Thank you for the response! You do not need to worry about me, I'll play nice in the sandbox. I was invited by a friend of mine to join, so I am checking it out. I would love to grab coffee in the loop sometimes. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll find a time to connect.
I don't know if you remember me. I spoke at the June 2013 conference and have attended earlier conferences. I told you I would consider volunteering after I retired. Can you use some help getting the next conference together? Maxine
Today I shared information with two start-up organizations about your websites
and how it is the best resources for a new business. We plan on working together on your website.
Thank you for sharing this information. I will be reviewing it. Look forward to chatting down the road.
Daniel, one of the reasons I was attracted to a conversation with you is that you had already posted the graphic on Mentoring Kids to Careers. Thanks for sharing the link again.
Thanks for your note. Could we chat sometime next Wednesday over the phone? Kind regards, S
Thank you for your help. We are a new group, having trouble finding volunteers. I will follow your advice and see what happen. If there is anything I can do to assist you, please let me know.
