Joseph J. Ferreira, Jr. <email@example.com>
King Philip Regional High School (Wrentham, MA)
I am working as a member of the H-Net Council to develop an H-Net Web 2.0/3.0 environment where each H-Net network, if it chooses, may become a central content exchange site as well as communications hub where everything from primary source documents to wiki platforms and blogs could be used individually and/or collaboratively by network members to develop shared syllabi, lessons, resource links lists, podcasts (video & audio) and even Web conferences. I am also working with my own district's technology department to develop a content/course management system that will allow for greater ease of use of uploading content, on-line lessons and assessments and resource sharing to move our courses away from pen & paper & towards more digital lessons and content.
My research interests include the effect of World War I on British culture, especially on how the colonies and dominions involvement in the war altered the relationship within the empire, esp. as compared to the nature of the imperial and Commonwealth relationship during the Boer War.
