Hi Stephen,
I will be presenting Games To Explain Human Human Factors at Pennsylvania State University on Monday the 22nd. If you will be in the vicinity I'd be pleased to invite you to come. Just let me know. Also, if you would like me to do a presentation of I'm Awesome, But I Have My Limitations at one of your high Schools or Games at your college as part of this trip or in the future please let me know. Ron

Thank you for inviting me to this network. In the past 12 years, I've taught 7,000+ students about Women in Jazz. Also, I found my 8th grade music students loved reading my book - IN PURSUIT OF A MELODY - even though the principal insisted that they couldn't read beyond a 3rd grade level!

Thanks for joining the Freshman Transition Network. The network is, and always will be, a "work in progress". Your input and ideas will play a big role in making this a useful and interactive site. Please let me know if you have ideas.

Be sure to read the "Read 1st" tab. I think that will give you a good idea of how to maximize this new network.

Also, please go to the forum page and click on the Introductions forum. Take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the users

Check out the "Your School" tab. This gives people a chance to leave information about and a link to their school's Freshman Transition Program. This can help schools connect with one another.

Check out the "Groups" tab. I would recommend making a group for your school. Then you can invite other teachers/educators from your school to join the network and your group. Your group can then become a "community forum" for teachers from your school.

Consider "friending" the other members of the community. That will make sure that the community truly is a community. You do this by going to someone's page and clicking Add as Friend, which is beneath their profile picture. By friending others you will then be able to send out messages, ask questions, and share thoughts more easily with those individuals.

Most importantly, though, your input, ideas, blogs, comments, and questions will benefit all the other members. Feel free to become a regular blogger or poster. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks again for joining!
