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 telling students and your colleagues again?
http://www.bbqdc.com/ Looks to be a huge event... I was thinking of posting it on the conference NING and on Twitter when the conference got closer to see who all was interested in going down. I'm all about meeting new people, so hopefully we can meet up and eat well.
Can't wait for NECC, and I hope to see as much of Washington as possible in those 5 days... I don't know when I'll head over there (it's not too far, maybe 6-7 blocks form the convention center - and there's a metro stop nearby if needed) but probably Sunday afternoon. Depends on how late EduBloggerCon goes :-)
Just requested to be your friend. I am a technology coordinator. I would like to thank you for all your resouces on your webpage, Kathy's Kaffeeklatsch. Looking forward to seeing you at NECC again.
We are working on a project on how we can utilize Web 2.0 applications, not only Social networking, in foreign language teaching. Your contributions, suggestions, and ideas are highly appreciated. I will keep you informed about the progress.
For our 1st week 5 assignment we made a site for Ning.com, joined Classroom 2.0 (and added a blog to our page), added the RSS feed to our google reader and requested to be your friend. Is that correct to have that assignment complete?
Yay! I did it! Now I have a newbie question about changing the appearance of my Classroom 2.0 page that I can't seem to figure out by clicking on anything and everything. How do I change the title of the header on my page? There doesn't seem to be anything in the "change appearance" section and when I click on the title box, it allows me to type in new content (for a title) but when I click the "save" button it simply reverts back to the default of "Welcome! Change Your Title Here". So, what am I missing?
