Hi all - I have been working on a project for the last couple of years
entitled STREAM. It is a set of materials designed to inform and instruct
teachers, and other interested parties, on math reform at the secondary
level. To do this, we use materials from 5 of the major NSF secondary
curriculum projects. The projects and the text series are listed below. On
of the components of the STREAM materials are video tapes taken in schools
from around the country that have used these curricula. The tapes and the
accompanying viewing guides are almost at completion.

Now for the request:

We have contracted with a company to put the tapes on the internet, along
with a program that will allow one to stream the video to their computer and
select clips to show, etc. What I am looking for is around 10 people who are
involved at the secondary level, either as a teacher, supervisor, or
supervising teacher, that would be willing to test this streaming process
with the video and to preview the way we have set it up with the program.

You would need a computer, modem, or some other connection to the internet,
and approximately 10 megs of hard disk space for storage (not sure this last
one is absolutely necessary).

If you have seen Jim Stigler's presentation on the TIMMS video study, the
program we are using is that program. We will have one of the project tapes
and an intro/frequently asked questions video on the net for you to preview
and make suggestions.

If you are interested in taking part, please send me an e-mail. I will need
to move on this within a couple of days in order to get your passwords and
id set up.

Thanks for taking the time to read this ... sorry for the length.
