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?
Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if the NWP would be willing to publicize a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university on its website. The more videos we get, the more good we can do!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
If you're interested in Web 2.0 tools for the National Writing Project, 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.
