I am working out a syllabus for a free computer class I will volunteer to teach at the local library through the Adult Education program locally; I want to take from the instruction and syllabus of high school and college class and mix in what I see of Web2.0 for functional emerging technology of the internet in so much as it will affect ability to empower parents to enable themselves to self educate for better jobs (workkeys) and assist their children and personal needs for research or homework.
Please respond with anything you know of as relevant, here are three of my current resources http://www.iTunes.com for iTunesU, http://www.ziipa.com and http://www.Go2Web20.net. I am also trying to work out which wiki platform is most simple to enable community to use wiki and square foot gardening to support the local food banks and homeless shelters. Wiki (www.mixedink.com) could enable a better syllabus for people to better search for or educate to workplace functionality standards and information as entertainment through enrichment.

This is a copy of the call for research papers with which to write the article for the current issue of this computer journal…
And the actual current issue is here: http://www.computer.org/portal/site/pervasive/
A catalyst for advancing research and practice in mobile and ubiquitous computing
Call for Works in Progress
We’re currently accepting Work in Progress submissions of 250 words or less for our January-March 2009 issue on Environmental Sustainability. These will not be peer-reviewed but will be reviewed by the Department Editor, Anthony Joseph, and, if accepted, edited by the staff into a feature for the issue. The deadline for work-in-progress submissions is 1 November 2008.
The original call for papers is below.
Environmental sustainability is rapidly emerging as an important and timely topic for pervasive computing research, motivated by increased awareness of issues such as global warming, depletion of natural resources, and e-waste. The creation, use, and disposal of large quantities of pervasive technologies such as sensors and mobile devices have strong implications for resource consumption and waste production. How can pervasive computing systems be designed so that they are environmentally sensitive from a material perspective? Further, pervasive technologies can be a powerful means of informing and influencing sustainable action and decisions by individuals, businesses, governments, and other organizations. How can pervasive computing systems be designed to support and persuade environmentally sustainable practices and behaviors?
This special issue provides a forum for cutting-edge work on pervasive technologies that are designed, deployed, or implemented in an environmentally responsible manner, as well as pervasive technologies that promote environmentally responsible actions.
Example topics for this special issue include but are not limited to the following:
design for technology re-use, re-purposing, or lifetime extension;
sensor network applications that support the efficient use or protection of natural resources;
grass roots sensing empowering local populations to track and act on information about pollution, traffic, or other conditions relating to sustainability;
analysis and decision making tools for gathering and presenting information that supports sustainable choices by individuals or businesses;
the use of pervasive computing to support sustainability-related behavior change;
novel systems, devices, or interfaces that support stewardship of the natural environment;
social networking tools that support environmentally friendly actions;
new business models that promote sustainable use of pervasive devices;
lessons learned from, conceptual frameworks, and methods for integrating sustainability into pervasive computing;
qualitative or quantitative studies of sustainable practices;
user studies examining how pervasive technologies mediate, redefine, or otherwise influence sustainable behaviors;
low-power hardware; and
resource-efficient system design
Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words long and should follow the magazine’s guidelines on style and presentation. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in accordance with normal practice for scientific publications. Submissions should be received by 23 June 2008 to receive full consideration.
In addition to full-length submissions, we also invite work-in-progress submissions of 250 words or less. These will not be peer-reviewed but will be reviewed by the Department Editor, Anthony Joseph, and, if accepted, edited by the staff into a feature for the issue. The deadline for work-in-progress submissions is 1 November 2008.

SQUARE FOOT GARDENING to give food to food banks…
1) I am doing business service which I install small “square foot gardens”, Cold Frames/mini Greenhouse, Rotating Composters, “Lasagna Gardens,” for free and then you can eat, sell, or donate the food (food banks, farmers market, or homeless.) I am also looking for high school or college level Social Studies partners.
Please note I live with my grandparents and need to add to their fixed income. Call or Email me ASAP (Planting starts soon!) Matthew Tripp TradeSkillsLLC and Extinctculture.
2) I am offering computer use and configuration service something like tutoring for software organization/productivity/
