Week of 3-24-14

· Tech Tips, Uncategorized

This was a very busy week.  Testing season tends to be chaotic.  See many things happening on the campus outside of testing.  Many different types of multimedia projects using Flip cameras, iPads, iPods, Movie Maker, and digital cameras.  So many great things that the students are doing to reinforce learning.  This is a great way to keep your students active and learning as we enter the late stages of the spring semester.

I want to thank everyone for their support and votes through my application process to the Global SMART Exemplary Educator (SEE) Summit in Canada this summer.  Today is the last day of voting.  Voting ends at midnight.  The numbers shown on the voting site are unofficial results.  I should have official results on April 4, but at this time, the numbers look good.  You can continue to vote into the night.  I need to finish in the top 25.  Here are the various links I have been sending:


At least one of these links should work.  Anyone is eligible to vote including family, friends, students, and long lost relatives.  Thank you again for your support.  If I’m accepted, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.
