Hi Christopher,

With your work in Assistive Technology for Loudon County PS, 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. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.

This is the last episode of Season 2 because, well, things are getting pretty hectic round these parts. Stay tuned though, more to come as soon as I can.
Hope you're having a fun summer.

Chris,
I have actually accepted a position outside of LCPS for next year. I will be working at a Charter School for students with Severe Disabilities in DC.
I learned a lot from the wonderful AT Team and will miss you all. This way, I can keep in touch and continue to use your wonderful ideas to assist in the education of my students. I will be working with 1st grade-aged children.

Hey everyone,
Episode #37 is up for your listening pleasure! Episode #37 features Part 1 of a two part interview with Chris Cummins, a high school English teacher and adjunct professor at the State University of New York at Fredonia who is currently teaching a class on Literacy and Technology. During this first part of the interview Chris and I talk about a few different styles of graphic organizers as well as discuss how to implement graphic organizers in a high school setting. I apologize if the audio quality isn't up to par, I did my best on this one.
Enjoy!

Hey Chris,

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 HS colleagues again?

Thanks,
Jack

"Episode #32 : Gift Ideas for Students with Severe Disabilities" is now available. Check it out at http://tinyurl.com/attipscast to hear an audio version of my guest blog post over at Patrick Black's blog Teaching All Students (http://teachingall.blogspot.com). The post outlines a personal family experience while providing a number of ideas for gifts that could be given to students with severe disabilities. It is my hope that educators who find this useful will forward it onto families who will then share it with other family members.

Episode #30 is up for your listening pleasure! Episode #30 is the second of a two-part feature on the top three things I learned at the National At-Risk Education Network (NAREN) Conference of 2009. Be warned, this episode is unlike most of the other episodes with more "educational philosophy" than "concrete strategy".
Enjoy!

Hey everyone!

I would love to get your feedback about the tip in this episode. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it is pretty controversial.
Enjoy!

Hello everyone!
Episode #28 is now up for your listening pleasure. Episode #28 features a strategy to help students keep their work areas clutter free called the “I’m finished” box. The “I’m finished” box is nothing more than a place to house materials that the student is done using but the episode goes into a bit more detail about how to implement the tool. For more check out the compendium blog at http://attipscast.wordpress.com
Thanks for listening!

Hi Chris,
Just found this new site. You might consider joining the Classroom Acoustics coalition facebook group. Have you ever recorded a ATTIPScast on classroom noise?

Keep up your fantastic work!
