EdTech Cadre

I am walking away with enough information regarding sketchcast and that makes me fairly comfortable in sharing it with other staff and students.

I really like our students to watch and learn with the teachers as we learn to make and post videos.

After watching a couple of "digital stories" from Discovery Education Streaming, my class created their own. This is one example from my multi-age classroom. I have PreK-Second Grade. Enjoy!

Flip Camera

We have been working on a class play and had the opportunity to perform our play for the retirement community at Sun Terrace in Hermiston. Because of the limited seating parents were not able to come watch their child. I used the Flip camera to record the video did some minor editing and then posted onto our blog for parents (and others) to view. Jenny Corey

Our final project in 8th grade math is a "World Issues Statistics Project".

Ancient Greece Virtual Museum

Our class created a virtual museum for Ancient Greece. The students worked in groups to create artifacts about Ancient Greece. We used several different mediums including Google maps, Mixbook, Sketchup, and Voki. The coolest part of this was that when students were home sick, they were still able to collaborate on their projects using e-mail, chat, and Google docs.

We also used Animoto. This is a quick video done to thank our parent group.
