Hi Tracey. I was wondering if any of your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Yippee, school has started again! Yes I'm being sarcastic, I wasn't ready for summer to end yet again. I haven't had time to look into all the cool new things I can teach my students about technology. I want to try introducing them to blogging, podcasting, and Gen y this year. Oh yeah, and now I need to figure out how to prove to the state of Kansas that my 8th graders are proficient in technology. I guess Id better get busy!
I'm getting more and more impressed with the scope of Audacity in the classroom. Right now I'm working on finding online music generators where the kids can go, create copyright free music and record it via Audacity. Then they can use it in projects and put it up online. Let's stay in touch about Audacity and share our instructional resources as we develop them next school year.
You would not believe it, but there are no pictures of me. I am usually behind the camera by choice. So this pic is from last years Essdack conference, I had to cut others out to protect the innocent:) Yeah, can't wait until the next conference, maybe you could plan karoke as a part of the conference.
