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.
We'd love to have your kids involved. If it's not a good fit for them, maybe you have some colleagues you could pass our info to.
Hey Thomas, our teachers are really working together to understand and figure out ways to incorporate this technology into our classes. I met with a few teachers yesterday and heard several great ideas. I finally stole Mr. Noah’s folder, he has been sick for the last few days. I still don’t have a head-set but I am in the process of finding some. Look forward to the PD next week. Let me know if you have any needs or concerns. JS
That sounds like a great idea; however, I am giving the 9 weeks test on Friday. I will look at the upcoming schedule and let you know what day. I think I need you to clarify some things first. The techno lingo makes my head hurt, but I am soaking it in. :) I will get back with you.
How are you? No, I haven't read the "Minds" article yet, but will tonight or tomorrow. My classes are getting ready for the Language and Reading portion of the AHSGE test as well, and boy are we stressed! We are doing practice tests on USA testprep today in the lab, so I have a little time to explore. My 9th grade class is writing expository essays and will be doing research next week. Any ideas other than using a virtual library to incorporate technology with that? I am searching ideas in my "spare" time, so anything you can possibly help me with would be great!! See you next Monday! :) Tracy
Hey Tom! My Biology class is getting ready for Alabama High School Graduation Exam....they are practicing right now on USATestprep.com. We are about to fly through Classification, Plants and Animals....all before the Science portion on March 12! My Anatomy class is working on the skeletal system....I would love to be connected with other teachers and students to network. Any help you can give me would be GREAT!
Have a great rest of the week....see you in Muscle Shoals, soon! :)
