Hey Melissa! Just wanted to touch base with you and say I'm sorry that we didn't get a Skype together. I haven't been in the classroom in about two weeks. My principal put a sub in there for the remainder of the year after testing so that I could go through training after training for this new position next year. I had really hoped we could get our classes together. I hope we can keep in touch b/c I plan to set up some contacts for different classes at my school next year even though I won't have one of my own.

Hey there,
I'm hearing a whole lot about VoiceThread. I assumed it was just another form of podcasting which I use GarageBand for, but now that I'm looking into it more I'm wondering if it's not quite a bit different. Have you used it? Any ideas/suggestions?

Melissa, Just a quick question..I'm trying to get responses from teachers I know have experience with wikis. I've just created my first one. How did you add your students as members so they can add and edit?

Thanks for your help. I loved the Halloween story your kids collaborated on. It completely convinced me to try google docs. Thank you for your help.

I couldn't live without my board! I left my charger for my laptop at home the other day and had to use dry erase after lunch....didn't think I'd make it through the day!:-) I am a Mac convert myself. I didn't know anything about them until coming to the school that I am currently at five years ago. Now, I'd never go back to a PC. We recently bought a new computer for home and went with Mac there to. I use iWeb to create my webpage and it is about as simple as it gets. I spent about 25 minutes on it this morning and changed the entire look of my site. The way all of the applications are streamlined makes it extremely simple. Do you ever use Skype when you're collaborating with the other class? I'm just becoming familiar with it and we're using it as a grade level right now (just teachers). I think it's great. If I could get more teachers at my school on the tech bandwagon (nearly impossible), we could use it schoolwide and google docs too...I'm a little obsessed with technology..sigh...

Very impressed with your looks great! Are there any fifth grade teachers at your school that are this creative? I'd love to have a class to collaborate with via Skype sometime this school year. Google docs was a great idea as was the wiki. :-)

I would love to know the details of the project you did with your third graders using google docs. Thank you!

Thanks for accepting my invitation. I am sending you a pdf of the first 5 chapters. If you send me an address to send the book, I will do so (

Also check out the podcast (click here)


Any feedback would be much appreciated. And most importantly. I hope the book inspires you!

Melissa - Did you every do a project with your third graders using google docs? I started looking at it for my fourth graders and it says that students have to be 13 years old in order to use it. I sort of want to ignore that and use it anyway but wasn't sure...
