"I am not sure what you are asking, Mark. I believe that the Volume Purchasing procedure requires schools to send purchase orders, and to pay on invoice. Assuming that your school is a US school, are you saying that your school has a non-US credit…"

Hi my name is Dana Sirotiak and I am new to this site. I am looking for some suggestions for my classroom. We have block scheduling where I teach. I see each group two times a week for 90 minutes then once for 45 minutes. I want to use that 45 minute period to link technology and ss together. I want the kids to make wikis, podcasts, etc. I am not exactly sure how to make these things myself. Any suggestions on mini technology assignments I can do in 45 minutes til I get a better understanding? Thanks!

Hi Deon,

With your interest in Technology and Learning fot St. Aloysius, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch
