It has been a while since I have posted...1) because being a mentor teacher to a student teacher is hard work (even if she is fabulous!) and 2) my grandmother is has been sick so I have been helping my mom out. All that being said, between home and school there has been no time!
But today, I went to a fabulous little conference that got me really excited! My school system has for years had an online high school campus, but now they are in the process of developing a middle grades online program to start next year and an 4th and 5th grade elementary program to start the year after that. Well, I was selected to be part of the development team for the elementary school program! I thought I knew a lot about intergrating technology--but boy do I have tons to learn!
Hopefully I will get to share some of the new technology ideas and resources that I learn--my favorite one so far I just got on Friday--
iSpring is an add-on for PowerPoint. It converts your presentation into a Flash file, so it may be viewed by anyone without PowerPoint. I am trying to figure out how to post an example. But it really is easy to use! I know I am going to be able to use it with my students to publish their PowerPoint presentations.
Speaking of exciting things in the works...I have posted more to my Teacher's Notebook store!
Enjoy your Saturday!
