Subject: Peggy O'Brien and Kiko
Peggy O'Brien--of the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Shakespeare Set
Free series --is in cyberspace, trying to figure out about how this
technology can be really useful in teaching and learning. She's Chief
Learning Officer at Kiko, Inc. (Kiko stands for Knowledge In, Knowledge
Out), and she's begun a Shakespeare Center there
The lessons and activities in the Center at this point are really
good---they stimulate inquiry and extended thinking in students of many
ages, they're engaging, and they use the web in a way that's both
compelling and sensible. But she's looking for this to be an active
gathering place on the web, focused on teaching Shakespeare. Check it
out, and participate!
This is a chance to shape a hot, new website. Communicate with Peggy
about how you'd like to see this Shakespeare Center evolve, and send
along your questions, challenges and successes teaching Shakespeare, and
other contributions. I have had my own graduate and undergraduate
students creating lessons on Kiko and Peggy has included them as well.
