With your work as a Media Specialist, 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.
Hi Kathy -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.
I really like that SMART gadget on your blog. How others get one of those?
Hi Kathy--I like your blog. I have a teacher (I'm a Tech Resource specialist) who blogs with her 5th graders (10-11 years old). You might get some ideas--the link is on my blog under one of my postings (What's happening in my buildings?)--click on Debbie. She's an awesome teacher of writing--scores are always in the high 90's.
