Hey Thomas,

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

We'd love to have your kids involved. If it's not a good fit for them, maybe you have some colleagues you could pass our info to.

Hi Thomas. We have just completed a long term goal this week of having a projector in every K-12 classroom. Thanks for helping our teachers get the most out of our technology resources!

Thank you for the article. I had not read this. I am planning on using this in my classroom to illustrate to students the importance of learning to effectively utilize these tools.

I am looking forward to our next class.

Hey Thomas, our teachers are really working together to understand and figure out ways to incorporate this technology into our classes. I met with a few teachers yesterday and heard several great ideas. I finally stole Mr. Noah’s folder, he has been sick for the last few days. I still don’t have a head-set but I am in the process of finding some. Look forward to the PD next week. Let me know if you have any needs or concerns. JS

That sounds like a great idea; however, I am giving the 9 weeks test on Friday. I will look at the upcoming schedule and let you know what day. I think I need you to clarify some things first. The techno lingo makes my head hurt, but I am soaking it in. :) I will get back with you.

Hi Thomas,
How are you? No, I haven't read the "Minds" article yet, but will tonight or tomorrow. My classes are getting ready for the Language and Reading portion of the AHSGE test as well, and boy are we stressed! We are doing practice tests on USA testprep today in the lab, so I have a little time to explore. My 9th grade class is writing expository essays and will be doing research next week. Any ideas other than using a virtual library to incorporate technology with that? I am searching ideas in my "spare" time, so anything you can possibly help me with would be great!! See you next Monday! :) Tracy

Hi Thomas. I was wondering if you and 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 Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Thomas,

With your work in Ed Technology integration, 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.

Forgot to say that I would like to receive the invite to the Facebook page from your student from Spain. That would be great!

Thanks, Thomas! I appreciate your reply and resources. Right now, I am a little overwhelmed myself with the new school year and keeping up with my master's classes. But, as soon as I can get a breath, I will check out the items that you sent.
