Hey Miss Mahoney,

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 colleagues again?

Thanks,
Jack

How do you add pictures to your podcast in Garageband? I am just learning!

Hi Miss Mahoney,

I saw that you posted a question about recording books. I have heard this question before but I have not seen a clear answer. Many schools are currently recording books on tape though. I would recommend using Garageband's podcasting feature, as you can add pictures along with the story. Many special education classrooms are using Garageband's podcasting feature for flashcards and books. You can also use the text to speech capability to have the computer convert digital text into speech (mp3). You will need a Mac for Garageband, and I have an automator for converting digital text to speech if you like.

Hi Miss Mahoney!

Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from Florida.

You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi.
I was wondering that same thing as you were about whether or not recording books was okay. I've been doing it as an updated listening center. What have you found out?
