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 colleagues again?
Hi Frank. 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 BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Hi Frank, you got a great blog... I'm just a beginner now trying to catch up with my students - also just saw your comment in slideshare on the PPT dodging-bullets-in-presentations
CU sometimes around here
Great, Franck. Let's keep in touch. I have never been in Mexico 'cause i don't speak spanish... In my network, I try to find "corresponding members" in many countries to help my students to understand the world: Judy in China, Donna in Jordan, Tandong in Cameroon... So, if you and/or your students accept to talk about Mexico, it would be a pleasure to invite you and to create a special group about Mexico... Have a nice day !
Thanks for the comment about Twitter. I just took a look at your ning and bookmarked it for future reference. I'd love to have some of your teachers join my ning: http://globaleducation.ning.com . There are several teachers in this group looking for partners in global collaborations.
