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 your HS colleagues again?
Well, I have giving up the battle of creating a custom blog in Rapid Weaver. My limited understanding of HTML and CSS, combined w/ the RSS feed from my worst nightmare and lack of patience; has persuaded me to use one of the more popular blog tools out there.
If you scroll down you will see my fav blog post.
Keep up the great work, you're an inspiration to us all and I look forward to reading your posts daily!!!
Hi Larry. 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 BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
I did u are one of three people whose blog I have in my RSS Aggregator so check regularly, Jennifer Dorman and Brian (whose last name escapes me) is another one. I found u all on here so it's been very beneficial.
So sorry about the blockage - and my slowness in reading this. I don't get into Classroom2.0 much anymore. Our network that is starting to work pretty well for student (14+) - come on over and check it out: http://tlgplace.ning.com
Seems like there should be some way to get your students enrolled if they can then participate.
I am new to using Web 2.0 in the classroom and hope to have my grade 6/7 students using blogs, wikis and our smartboard this year. I love your edublog and am getting some great ideas from it.
I just wanted to let you know about a new social network site that I have started, http://www.teachingcontent.ning.com. I'm hoping that the site will attract content teachers and we'll be able to discuss how to most effectively use technology for actual teaching and learning within the content areas. While we could say that Classroom 2.0 is focused on the technology, Teaching Content 2.0 will be focused on the content.
I'm very much hoping that you will consider joining this social network site and partnering with us to create high quality dialogue.
