Wow, a new site to spend so much time ~ won't my wife be pleased!! As I tell her, at least they are educational for work and not recreationally destroying our marriage :)
I stumbled here by mistake and figured I'd see what it was about. I am searching for new technology for my class of 2nd graders. I recently acquired a Mimio Interactive device for my white board and am currently working on finding lessons and software to use with it. The kids and I are amazed at the things we can do… Continue

As we work through our implementation plan for increasing the use of our Blackboard Learning, Content, and Community systems we often get lost in the minutiae of administration and lose track of what is happening on the end-users side. I have used blended online learning environments as a teacher and as a staff development instructor for 11+ years. The tools available to a teacher and the students are awesome. Discussion boards have been the backbone of online courses. They still are. At time I… Continue

I have updated the Maths
text to include a section on completing the square; some rearranging has occurred. And I added some nice graphs; some of the graphs need to be replaced with "more professional" looking graphs.
Does anybody know of a program for Linux or Mac where I can put multiple graphs, label points, put custom labels on the x and y-axis, and export as *.png files?
I am also going to try and make… Continue

I loved making this character poster. I had no idea you can make something like that using Excel. The hardest part I found was finding a picture that had a high enough resolution. Once I did I thought it was very simple and fast to make. This is a great way to decorate a classroom, and much cheaper than buying a bunch of character posters. Not only do these make for great decorations, but they are also good reminders for the kids on some of the character traits they should have.

When I think of a words to describe myself, many come to mind. Words like creative, intelligent, compassionate, and caring all pertain to my being in some manner. However there is one word that describes me better than the rest and that word would be efficient. Efficient is an adjective defined as achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort and working in a well-organized and competent manner. The reason why I am talking about the term efficient is because of the correlation it… Continue

My older brother and I would spend hours a day when we were little play Super Nintendo. We had a system worked out where one of us would stay at the easiest level and keep getting as many lives as we could. The other one would try to advance as far as they could through all the levels. If that person got low on lives, then the one staying at the easiest level one give most of their lives to that person. It was a really good syster. It almost made it possible for us to beat the whole game, but… Continue

When I was younger my brothers and some friends and I would play Nintendo 64. This gaming system had the game Mario Party to go with it. Ryne, Kyler, PJ, Zach, and I loved
that game! We would play it every single time we got together and even when we weren't all together. This gaming system had 4 controllers with it. The problem we had was that there were 5 of us. I'm sure you can see where this is going...not enough controllers for kids. So we started getting into arguments and fights… Continue

So when I was growing the memory I know best with the use of technology was the time when my twin brother and I always played the game system Sega together. Those were the best times. We would always be so excited to come home after school and play each other in racing on the Sega or playing Sonic the headchog. It was a simple game system to use and was always so much fun! I remember always playing it and asking my friends all the time to come over and we could play the Sega. I mean litterally… Continue

The kids were like, "We can visit ANY author on this page?" and, "We can look at ANY book site on… Continue

In third grade on my birthday, I recieved my first cassette tape player. I was overly excited about this device because I had so many tapes that I wanted to listen to. I used this player to read along with the books, and when I was afriad at night, I could listen to the stories on the tape until I was sound asleep. My favorite thing to do with the tape player was to slow it down so slow that the voices would sound low and really silly. You can't… Continue

Technology has always been something that has been very present throughout my life. My dad's job when I was younger allowed us to be exposed to computers and other things like that at a very young age. In fact my dad built our first home computer using different parts from old computers they had at work. But before we even had a computer on of the ways that I used technology the most was the one and only Nintendo. Then Nintendo was a gaming console that my brothers and I would spend hours… Continue
