I am a Ph.D. student in Education with a concentration in Adult Learning and completed my M.S. in Instructional Technology at the University of Tennessee, August 2008. I am passionate about designing interactive multimedia for instructional purposes, as well as helping teachers to use technology in the classroom.

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?
Wow, that's great, thank you! My students will be happy to know they were featured. I've done lots of podcasting, iMovies, and other kinds of digital projects. I'll see if we have anything else to share... Glad it went well.
Please feel free to use it, it has handouts attached that you may change to suit your needs. Be aware that many students really didn't figure out that some of the sites were fake, I had to explain it to some of them. This was a great opportunity to talk about truth in advertising and ethics on the Internet. I can email you a student sample if you would like? Send me a message if you want.
I have only used Zunal so far. I am curious about the other sites you mentioned. Anyone else out there used them?
when we wanted to purchase the boards and clickers we contacted a gal in Detroit, Michigan. She was very willing to give us demo items to use. Not sure whether that would be possible in your state but you might want to give it a try.
Wow! My students will be so excited to hear that you have shared their work. It will only motivate them even more, and I am always looking for ways to do that. I am checking out the link to your wiki now. I really appreciate all of your feedback. It is so reassuring to hear that I am headed in the right direction with technology. I will soon be embedding imovies that the student created when putting together a commercial to sell a time share on another planet. It is much more complicated than a PowerPoint and it should prove to your co-worker that a ten-year-old can do much more if given the opportunity:)
