The world for our rural students can be vastly expanded by reality "play"online or SmartBoard. Try some of the explorations on this site such as "Tinker, Build a Fish" to make the preditor/prey and adaptations concepts
come to life, or "Tinker, Zoo Matchmaker" to delve into genetics, or "Role Play, U-505" to role play commanding a U-boat in WWII. True learning using state of the art technology....
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
