  1. Hey, thanks for blogging this as well. Between the two of us I can get information on sessions I could not do. Karen will put up the presentation at some point. Nice site! Karl

  2. Hi Rockers!

    The application for ROW7: Surf’s Up is now available online!


    We are looking for 18 schools from every continent to participate in a special round designed to teach us about the world’s oceans, how we depend on them, and how we can save them!

    Applications are due on September 7, 20007. The International Team will be announced on September 9th. A Moodle will be set up for teachers and students who want to participate but cannot commit to the weekly assignment deadlines.

    Surf’s Up will run from September 10 – December 9, 2007.

    If you have any questions, please contact me at rockourworld@mac.com.

    We are gearing up for a “WHALE of a Round”! SEA you there!

    Rock On,
    Carol Anne
