You are invited to join us Wednesday, Nov. 17th, 2010 at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET ( check for local time) when we get a sneak preview of IMAGING, a new feature found in the Critique^It service. The demo will be given by Critique^It co-founders and creators Alexa Fleur (CEO) and Ashley Bradford (CTO).
We are a startup company developing CritiqueIt, the most sophisticated, feature-rich critique application available on the web today. We believe cutting-edge technology should enhance and catalyze the user experience without confusion or exorbitant cost. Our passion is to transform how people critique and collaborate, providing solutions for the educational environment and writers market.
CritiqueIt allows users to upload, share and critique documents regardless of which software is being used. Through text, voice and video annotation, CritiqueIt brings human interaction online—the writing, speaking, and sharing that makes document collaboration and critical review personal and engaging.

2010 Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture Association
31st Annual Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico
February 10-13, 2010
Submission Deadline: 12/15/09 (Priority Registration Deadline 11/1/09)
The Pedagogies and the Profession Area of the Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture Association is now accepting proposals for paper presentations and panels on any topic involving successful or innovative approaches for teaching literature, media studies, film, cultural studies, television, rhetoric and composition, technical writing, or technology. Also welcome are proposals that identify and discuss the existence or implication of specific pedagogical problems or issues, whether these advance any resulting new methodologies or not.
With the widespread adoption of e-mail, the Internet, and hosted applications for creating and sharing documents, the way in which students learn and educators teach is undergoing a dramatic shift. With new technologies for creating documents and collaborating online, educators are transforming how they work with students, and students are finding new ways to work with peers. The result: an approach to collaboration and learning that redefines possibilities for teacher-student interactions and gets students more engaged in learning.

The possibility for real discovery inspires the session leaders’ participatory science pedagogy, within the framework of an online “collaboratory.” Combined with open content, a collaboratory is a flexible platform for shared experimentation. In this interactive session, participants will experience collaborating on issues related to climate change and botany through using open content and open-source tools. Presenters will highlight teacher trainings and pedagogical models being developed, for example, in the BioQUEST SCOPE and OER Commons International Teacher Exchange projects.
In January 2007, St. Lawrence University opened its new Newell Center for Arts Technology (NCAT). A shared facility with buy-in from visual arts, music, theater, communication, and film studies faculty, along with the campus's Brush Art Gallery, the NCAT replaces departmental labs and serves two purposes: it helps the departments meet their technological needs for teaching and learning; and it serves as a hub for collaborative, interdisciplinary work.
