Hi Mike. I was wondering if you have any high school contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
With your interest in Education Technology in your elementary classroom, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
Thanks for the great keynote at our conference today, Mike. The videos had us laughing (those kids!) and it gave the folks some inspiration. One hint: you may want to delete the comments about "editing a movie until 3 a.m." -- ha. You notice I responded: "Ahh, I just let the kids do it."
Take care and thanks again.
See you on Monday (unless you are meeting with the prez again)
Mike, a friend of mine in Norfolk (next city over) works across the hall with the Va. Teacher of the Year and is one of the four finalists for National Teacher of the Year. He's a young guy and only has taught eight (?) years. All the finalists are middle school and high and three (?) teach science.
Check out this video that I created with my students for the Many Voices for Darfur Project. I wrote the song, and used an online site for the music, and then used the Snowball to have all 80 sixth graders sing backup.
They loved it!
