Thanks for your comment, Shea. Good to see you this morning. I learned so much. Took notes that I'll have to put into a blog post soon. Yes, I'll let you know how it goes. I'm presenting about it twice on Monday at Professional Development. Hoping that goes well.
Darn. Looks like we missed a good meeting this week. Cheryl Dultz shared here presentation from CUE. I missed it at CUE too. It sounds like there's just one more meeting in May. Let's plan to make it to that one.
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 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 California.
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
