Hi Kevin,

With your work in Technology, 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 conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

Hi Kevin. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Kevin - Is there a way to set up a notification alert that I would get an email when the google form is filled out?

Hi, Kevin. Are you the person who did the Edubloggercon session on Google Docs? I wasn't able to attend that session, but am currently looking for districts that have done large implementations with Google Docs (see to get input.

Let me know if you have info that might help on this. Thx in advance.

Hi Kevin,

We are know as SITACT Incorporated and we operate out of Chicago. You can
find more about us at www.sitact.ent. We are into developing virtual
learning environments and course settings so that it becomes easy to set up
an online course for a teacher. A sample of what we do can be seen at . Please use the guest login
and use "frankieuncle" as the guest access code. What you will see in here
is a simple course that describes the software, but this course can be
designed to teach diverse subject matter to students. If you feel the kind
of work we are doing will be useful for you, we will be glad to work with
you setting up such virtual courses for collaborative dissemination and consumption of knowledge. Even if you didn't like the work we do, please let us know if we can do anything else for you.

Sorry I missed you the other day - when I got your message it was too late. This is getting silly, isn't it? Any suggestions for the next few days?

We might have to resort to e-mail and abandon plans for a synchronous chat :-)

Hi Kevin,
I am also from the Jersey shore and have taken a course from you through Southern ETTC. I just discovered "VoiceThread" - WOW. What a great tool. The world language teachers in my school are going to go crazy. I feel really dumb but I'm having trouble coordinating the pencil with my recording. I created an account and uploaded my photo, recorded my voice on Susan's Classroom 2.0 map, but can't seem to draw the little arrow to NJ and make it stay. Any suggestions??

Christine, as I mentioned in my presentation (which is in my Flickr stream and also in a "VoiceThread" on my blog,) the hardware limitations are pretty substantial, widening the digital divide further. Bottom line, you need a modern PC with a pretty capable video card and lots of memory to have a good SL experience. That said, the environment is so immersive and so unique that I think everyone needs to at least be aware of it.

Meagan, our most successful projects to date have involved visual media, Photostory to be exact, the kids take to the software like ducks to water, and with the right support from the classroom teacher, we make beautiful movies together (with music!) while we reinforce the curriculum. When the little ones hear their voices as part of their creation it makes the experience that much more powerful. I'm dreaming up some big changes to our K-4 technology curriculum for next year, most surrounding visual literacy ... I've just got to get them in front of my boss for a discussion!

Thanks for the comments!

I read about Second Life research/experiences on your blog and I just saw your flickr pics online.
I'm interested in the educational potential of SecondLife but the program slows down my home computer so much, that I haven't been able to play around and learn. :(

I was glad to find someone who is in the elementary setting.I teach in a K-5 lab and also work some with teachers. It is my hope that I will be in the classrooms more next year.I am trying to convince my colleagues that Web 2.0 tools are the way to go. I would be interested to learn about projects that have been successful with young kids.
