I am a principal of special and alternative education in western new york. I am interested in promoting web 2.0 tool useage amongst my teachers so as to benefit students and expose them to virtual technologies that can improve their lives and academic progress
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?
Happy New Year! I was wondering if your teachers and students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from NY!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

It will be interesting to see how things go at school. Asked one of the Directors how things were going and the reply was she has such a high energy level! We are not use to that! And to expect to see her in the classrooms engaging teachers and students - now that is good news! Will keep you posted on our progress.
