1. Here is a lesson Gail found about thinking before you post. Great lesson and perfect for older students. Pause Before You Post!
2. Another site shared by Gail this week was Technology Rocks. This site has some cute posters that can be used in the classroom.
3. Ed Puzzle was a site that was gleaned from the Google Summit that the ITRTs and Teresa Howell attended over the weekend. I wish I could say that I found it but unfortunately, I got sick with the flu and couldn't stay. In fact, much of what I did attend is sort of a blur. This site though was one that Mike Cargill was impressed with. I haven't had a chance to play with it but I understand that some of you are already familiar with this site. I plan to get better acquainted with this soon! EdPuzzle will allow you to upload a video and insert questions into the video. The video will not progress until the student answers the question.
4. This is not a site but it is a wonderful idea that I just stumbled upon while I was trying to up on my blog reading. The idea is a gallon sized zip bag. This would be a great task for Primary kids.
5. Friday at the Movies - Although the dancers in this movie are not on skates, this song reminded me of the kids songs that use to be played at Skateland. Can you imagine trying to do this on skates?
_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.
