Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?
A few teachers have brought this to our attention. Much of the vocab is common to both tests. We considered re-marketing this as the 'SAT/ACT Vocab Video Contest at MIT', but that was a bit cumbersome. We'd love for you to reconsider!
Hi Cindy. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
I will be teaching a special topics ED Tech course this summer allowing teachers to locating meaningful Web 2.0 resources to enhance their practice. I am leaving next week to attend the Emerging Tech conference to gather more ideas. I would love to hear what you have found that teachers and students find engaging and stimulating in the classroom.
Wasn't meant to be a slam, was actually pretty darn exciting! Those are the people who REALLY need the PD, versus people who are just looking for something even newer than what they were using last week. Thrilled to see so many people who were virtual newbies.
