#25wordstory Challenge

I happened across the Twitter 25 Word Story writing experiment and challenge a few days ago and thought this would be a great idea to share with my 6th grade gifted class. The goal is to tell a story in exactly 25 words. To introduce them to the concept, I shared Kevin Hodgson’s Prezi  titled “Sixty 25-Word Stories”. I really didn’t do much more than that and hoped that some of them would take interest.…

Help on a Wiki project


I am trying to create a class wiki for my ESL
students. The main topic would revolve around learning English. Anyone
know of any good wikis that I can direct my students to for ideas. Also
does anyone know of any experts who would be interested in editing and
commenting on student work?

I am also interested in connecting with other ESL/ELD teachers. Anyone intrested in collaborating on a project?

Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro (Breeze)

This week was a very busy week. We worked on our Midterm Projects. I decided to find out what Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro could offer in the classroom. It is a very interesting program and has so much to offer both learners and instructors. I became so involved in trying it out that I wanted to know how it really works. I invited some of my classmates to help me try it out. One of them took me up on the offer and I presented my midterm project on the site. It was a great learning experience. The… Continue

cosecant arguments; not like you think the other argument.

for csc(2n+1) ; the "2n + 1" is considered the argument. The argument I am referring to in the title is the age old battle between what should you know and what should you be able to get, look up, or derive when needed.

The battle rages on. Here is my update to the JS Maths Wiki that was inspired by one such argument (very civil) that I participated in at a holiday party for the staff at our school. Here is… Continue

Wave, wiki and what not?

I have updated the JS Maths Wiki with some student contributions. Inequalities with examples and audio explanations. Listen while you try your homework.

My students and I have had our wave accounts for about a week now. We are, as expected, impressed. We are trying/toying with the idea of building a wave gadget in our Java class, but can not get GWT to work on Ubuntu?…

Dear Reader:

* go to the schools library web page

* log in

* search for books

* add the ones I like to my personal list

* and check out 20 books at a time for one month

* the books… Continue

Perhaps you, like me, have read and considered the power behind Wikis, Blogging, as well as wondered what's all the HYPE about Web 2.0. Or, maybe you have considered all of the many suggestions about what the best tech tools are or wondered if the World is really going Web 2.0. It seems that many discussions on Classroom 2.0 have been lively and provide great ideas on how we, as teachers, can use web 2.0 tools with our students. I had a handle on these topics and have enjoyed my attempts to… Continue
