I'm a "newbie" to incorporating technology in the classroom. I have a Smartboard and the students have Macbooks. I teach composition and literature and must keep the students skills sharp in comprehension and writing standards, but I also want to know how to do this with a balance of text and technology.

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.

Do you mind passing my message along to your HS colleagues again?
Sounds good, Dawn. I know a few school districts have issues with YouTube. In case that is the issue, you guys could alway try SchoolTube.com - it is similar to YouTube but videos are screened by educators before being posted.
Hi Dawn. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
