Hi Marian,

Thanks for making the change to the login.

I like the tool and especially the emphasis and straight forward messaging about the importance of establishing a relationship in distance ed courses.

For the last few years, I have been teaching an online portfolio/ business communication course with military students. I found the fastest way to build the kind of rapport that you build in the classroom is through asking students to write pride stories. Students send me their brainstorm list as well as their completed story. Seems to be a great way to quick start a respectful relationship.

The Technology Integration Self-assessment (TISA) section of
adultedonline.org is new, just launched at the end of August. It was
field-tested with adult education practitioners (teachers and
administrators) in several parts of the U.S. It was designed for
adult education teachers. Nevertheless, it may be useful for K-12
teachers. Many of the competencies upon which the self assessment
apply in K-12, I would think, and some of the on-line professional
development learning resources, and many of the learning strategies
apply to K-12.

If you use it with K-12 teachers, let us (Marian Thacher in
particular, mthacher at otan.us) know what you think.
