Hi Brad. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Have had difficulty participating in Classroom 2.0 because the times when the presentations are made are not when I am available. Also it's kind of confusing to me how to participate. The one time i tried it, the class that I thought was going on had already happened so it wasn't live.
Frank and I were talking this am. Since this is an invitation only group (which we think is a good experiment), Mike and Mary will need admin to be able to approve people. I invited Mary, but did not give her more detail. We have had a least one applicant that we don'r know - Ryan Latham. The question becomes, if we want to focus this on PL, which we are currently doing, do we let others in? The larger group might be iVIE - is that where we would interact with Picture This?
When we first looked at starting this group, we were looking for a way for all PL teachers to be able to exchange ideas. There is PL Escondido, PL San Diego, and PL Encinitas. We also want to be able to communicate with similar programs with the same goals. Picture This is one such program. There is also an iVIE group, where we hope to get lots of educators interested in exchanging ideas. Hmmm - tried to embed a link to those groups, but I don't see how...
