David,

I have made more videos of myself, but I stopped editing and uploading
them because they were distracting me from my goal. The purpose of the
video was to create a more friendly online environment; a catalogue of
answers to student questions.

I am in the process of developing online education that revolves around
student interest. I am using varied forms of media to present skills to
students that they will then apply. I am currently working with the
state of Kentucky to develop the course. I am currently using the
course with students and they seem to like it, when the product is
completed Erika Larson and I will present it to the group and get ideas
about how/where to push it further.

So, the short and skinny is no, I am not producing more online videos at
the moment.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for sending the link to this slide show. Things I liked about it
include the overall message that young adults live digitally -- and if
we want to engage them we need to use the technology they are using to
do it, and the collection of compelling facts. Things I didn't care for
include the guilt tripping and distracting music.

I understand that the Philadelphia YouthBuild Charter School has done a
lot with integrating technology with urban youth (who left regular
public schools before graduating). Also, the MATCH Charter School in
Boston is built on integrating technology. These are both publicly-
funded schools.

Barry, have you made any more videos yourself? If so, please send us
the URLs.

All the best,

David
