I have just discovered a new FREE portfolio tool called Bulb. You can upload pictures, videos, or type up text documents. Like Facebook you can follow others. In playing with it today I uploaded some pictures of the area. Then I uploaded some examples of a project I am thinking of trying with 4th or 5th graders. I want them to draw their own "elf, fairy" etc. They will then take a real picture and place their drawn character in the image. You can check out my Fat Fairy and Blue Bear on my bulb. Ok, I know it sounds a little quirky but the kids will love it!
Regardless of what you think of Fat Fairy, the free portfolio is really cool!
_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.
