Updates!!

Hello Everyone,

I am sure we are all suffering from grades, snow days, and cabin fever - and can relate to our little canine friend on the left!!

Here is some news that might cheer you up!

Our next meeting has been re-schedule for February 27, at Academy Hill School, from 830-2:30. Angel Allen, the tech integrator for
msad 9 has cleared the system so we will be able
to get on google, no problem:) Thanks, Angel.

I know we will have another fun filled, productive day.

Here are some websites you might like to visit before we get together:

www.iearn.org - This website connects teachers from all over the world and allows a space to collaborate on creating units and share with teachers and students alike in different countries around the world.

www.epals.com - This website connects student-to-student in over 200 countries. The students are on a secure e-mail system and online forum. Students can create their own blogs.

We will be looking at forming units of inquiry with differentiated reading materials. If you have any resources, please come and share.

We will also spend part of the afternoon drafting a recommendation for the state regarding literacy and technology. Please take a few minutes and jot down some ideas.

See you in February.

Thanks for all you do,
Darlene
