Awesome. There's so much stuff out there for history teachers and already some people have added some primary sources and images that I'll use with my classes. Look forward to collaborating.
Enjoy your summer (we're all getting swine flu!).
My name’s David and I’m a history teacher in Queensland, Australia. I use a lot of podcasting and online tools with my classes and am always looking for new ideas.
I host a group on diigo (it’s similar to delicious and very popular with teachers) for history teachers to share links, ideas and resources. It’s at http://groups.diigo.com/groups/history-teachers.
Please come along and join and share any sources or resources you use with the rest of us. See you there.

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 colleagues again?
OK cool. Some other teachers brought this to my attention. In case your contacts may be hesitant, I can tell you that the vocab for the SAT has a lot of overlap with that on the ACT. We considered renaming the contest but then thought it'd get too messy "The SAT/ACT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT" just did not roll off the tongue so to speak :P
Hope you had a nice winter break. I was wondering if you or 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. We'd really like to get students involved from Kansas!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
