"Cool. With my students, I have often described the paleo-/ epi-graphic tradition of the pre-printing age in terms of text messaging. "I.X. -- Iesu Christus" That being said we could probably start with the comprehensive abbreviations in…"

"This is so much fun!!! If we are trying to "resonate" with the English versions, it could also be GFA, gratias futuras ago... GFA and TIA sound kind of alike. :-)"

2010 Standards for Latin Teacher Preparation Published by APA/ACL

The American Philological Association (APA) and the American Classical League (ACL) jointly created and published the Standards for Latin Teacher Preparation in 2010. There is a small section listing sample online resources (eClassics is one of the three resources listed!). There is also a "Note on Technology" on page 17.

Profile Information

Hometown/Institution:
Princeton, NJ/American School of Classical Studies at Athens
Role in the Classics Classroom (real or virtual):
all of the above
About Me:
I am the Director of Publications for the American School of Classical Studies at Athens working from the ASCSA's US-based HQ in Princeton. I'm responsible for the publication of the journal Hesperia as well as series and monographs concerning current archaeological research conducted under the auspices of the ASCSA. I am working on adding additional digital publications to the mix as well.

From 2007 - August 2010, I was the Director of eLearning for Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers (www.bolchazy.com), an academic press specializing in Greek and Latin textbooks. When outside, I'm usually accompanied by a soccer ball or a six-year-old girl or sometimes both. I have an MA in art history and archaeology (specializing in Greek plastic vases) from the University of Missouri - Columbia, and a BA in archaeology from the University of Evansville as a member of the first graduating class from this remarkable department.

Prior to working at BCP, I spent nine years at Willoughby Associates, a museum database management company where I trained over 1,000 museum professionals at over 100 institutions worldwide on how to use our software. I also created eBooks of our documentation, produced tech tips and tutorials, and enjoyed getting even the most technophobic museum person interested in using the database to manage both the content and context of their collections.

Find me on World of Warcraft on the Feathermoon realm as Cliothalion, Tauren druid.

Best/worst computer-related classroom happening:
I once taught folks how to use a museum database management system at Cornell University during rains that were so bad the ceiling leaked, separating me from the class with a thin wall of water for an entire day.

Titio! Tweeting in and for Latin via Twitter

Twitter is another ubiquitous Web 2.0 communication tool enabling users to "tweet" (post) updates in 140 characters (or less). Some would argue that Martial was the first person to tweet even though Twitter would not be invented until nearly 2,000 years after his death. For users of Twitter, there are those who tweet, those who follow (subscribe to those who tweet), and those who do both. Classicists have gotten into Twitter, too, and some are even using it… Continue

American Classical League Pre-Institute Workshop on free e-utilities for Latin teachers

I presented a pre-Institute workshop at ACL last week on how to download, install, and use Skype, Audacity, WeGame, Second Life, and World of Warcraft (machinima projects and live interaction in Latin). I thought that others might benefit from the 60-page, illustrated handout, so I have attached it to this post in PDF format.…

This ning system is very nice, Andrew!

I was wondering if there was a composite RSS feed for ALL the blogs in this eclassics ning circle? If there is such a thing, let me know - I've subscribed to your blog and to the forum, but it sure would be nice to subscribe the blog feeds en masse if there is such an option.

Andrew,

Thanks for inviting me.

I took Latin in high school (1955-1959) and now that I'm retired, I have time to really learn it.

I've just begun A Gratius Avitus' Conversational Latin Course, and when a little more advanced, would like to join your "Speaking Latin Aloud."

Looking forward to interacting with you folks.

Yes, I thought the world was ready for Owl Macros! Also, I've yet to meet a cat that had any interest in speaking Latin, even pidgin Latin. ;)
