Henry—How I got started making these activities for my own students, and my work evolved to web based content that students and teachers anywhere could access. I would solicit feedback from teachers on how I could organize the activities better, and if teachers had suggestions for other activities.


Jose—Introducing Web 2.0 into your classroom.

Going beyond traditional use of technology:  Presentation tool, electronic worksheets, basic research. http://www.slideshare.net/markwoolley/web-20-tools-in-your-classroom

Mathew—Digital video to teach media literacy, engage reluctant readers/writers (how I went from editing movies myself to teaching 2nd graders to edit their own films), brief snippets of films, quick explaination of workflow (software used), how to work this in with pacing plan and mandated curriculum

My presentation is online at: http://www.opencourtresources.com/webcast

I am not showing movies as there seems to be some technical problems. However, I have stills from the films and direct those interested to the video web site. I will, of course, narrate presentation.
