Billions of dollars are still going into the pockets of corrupt politicians and business people instead of schools, hospitals and roads. Ahead of the leaders gathering in Australia for the #G20, we call on them to Unmask the Corrupt.

Absolutely.  It's never just about the tech, and it's frankly embarrassing that we should be so enamoured of it.  And I speak as someone who makes a living out of showing people how to use the stuff...

Introduction

National Work (on the Use of Technology)

Bonnie is an American teacher and technology consultant based in Washington, D.C.. One of the first teachers to promote the role of the Internet in the classroom using the resources of NASA, National Geographic, Earthwatch, NOAA, and NSTA to transform teaching and learning. She is a teacher agent of change.

 

Her initial mentors were Dr. Chris Dede and Seymour Papert. Jenelle Leonard , and Frank Withrow

 

She was first identified as an educational leader by the National Educational Association, NFIE, as a Christa McAuliffe Educator one of five educator selected from all across the USA. In 1992, Bracey was selected as a Christa McAuliffe Educator .She was also a PAEMST Winner from the state of Virginia in Science Education.

She is currently being an activist in cyberlearning initiatives with Parry Aftab and Wired Moms.

Presidential Appointment to The NIIAC

 Bracey was the only K-12 teacher selected by the Clinton Administration for serving on the National Information Infrastructure Advisory Council, whose work in the mid 1990s led to the creation of the E-rate program. She traveled the country doing demonstrations and taking the story of 21st Century technology to communities, business roundtables and education

 (teachers, administrators and school boards) The initiative was a White House Initiative entitled Cyber ED. Part of her work was with the IITA, Information Infrastructure Task Force and the office of science and technology policy. She established the first list-serv for teachers.

DIGITAL EQUITY and SOCIAL JUSTICE

Bracey is an active member of the Digital Divide Network, which was overcome by spam. ( the interest in Cyberbulllying comes from that project being over taken by spammers and hate mongers.

Her advocacy is in the area of gender equity, social justice and the digital divide is all over the Internet. She is the chair of the Digital Equity Chair of ISTE/NECC ( National Educational Computing Conference and is creating a digital equity symposium entitled " Against All Odds " to highlight case studies of those who have used technology in meaningful ways to make a difference. She has Nings, FaceBook groups, and several listserv groups to help others find the way to digital equity. She is all about participatory culture as well as emerging technologies.

GENDER EQUITY

 

Thinking about gender equity, she works with NCWIT for Gender Equity.

 

NCWIT is the National Center for Women & Information Technology. It is a coalition of more than 170 prominent corporations, academic institutions, government agencies, and non-profits working to increase women's participation in information technology (IT)..

She believes as the group does that inspiring more women to choose careers in IT isn't about parity; it's a compelling issue of innovation, competitiveness, and workforce sustainability. In a global economy, gender diversity in IT means a larger and more competitive workforce; in a world dependent on innovation, it means the ability to design technology that is as broad and creative as the people it serves.

 

Broadening Participation in Supercomputing

 

Bonnie has worked with NCSA in outreach for broadening participation and education since 2000. She has helped to frame outreach for this initiative since her participation in http://www.cilt.org.

 

She has helped to frame Bridge Day participations around the Supercomputing Conferences and is an active member of the Education committee of Teragrid and SuperComputing.

PIONEERS; These Teachers Teach Tech to Teachers

The Crusader: Bonnie Bracey

International lecturer on science and technology in education issues

Washington, D.C.

 

PERSONAL FUN FACT -- Briefly worked as a fashion model in Paris.

 

Bonnie Bracey stumbled onto technology when she was teaching elementary school almost 20 years ago. ''I was one of those people who said, 'I'm a good teacher, I don't need technology,''' she said. But she had a bright student who ''had a need,'' she said, so she got an Apple computer and tried to learn how to use it so that she could teach it to him. Instead, the child wound up teaching skills to her.

They both loved Shakespeare and soon Ms. Bracey found his plays online at the Folger Shakespeare Library. She used the Internet to locate a woman at the Smithsonian Institution who was a Shakespeare expert. Shortly thereafter, the expert visited the classroom dressed as Queen Elizabeth. Next, Ms. Bracey said, the students took to shouting at one another, ''You obfuscating oaf!''

''Technology gave me wings in a lot of ways,'' said Ms. Bracey, who ended up specializing in science teaching. As an elementary-school teacher in Virginia, Ms. Bracey took her students into new territory, hooking them up with NASA and using Internet resources to help them learn about the Columbus Quincentenary.

 

Today she travels the globe speaking at and attending conferences on subjects related to technology integration in education and science. A recent discovery of hers is a Web site,

http://www.bugscope.beckman.uiuc.edu, that gives science classes free remote access to an electron microscope. ''So many free ways to learn, so many resources, so little time to share them with others,'' she wrote in an e-mail message.
