Today a group of 30 students are going to learn how to create their very own audio podcast.  These students will then take what they have learned and teach their classmates how to complete this easy task.  Like I said before making a podcast is so easy my four year old can and has done it.  Happy Podcasting!!!!!

Hey Guys!

I just wanted to let you in on a little secret I found out today.  I was voted one of Gresham’s Teacher’s of The Year by the faculty and staff at Gresham.  I’m sure that they never would have done this had they not seen and heard about all the amazing things we have been doing this year in class.  All of these things would never have been possible without all of your guys energy and enthusiasm exerted in class.  THANKS GUYS!!!!!

Hey guys,
I just attended a workshop about Skype and Voicethread. These are two great sites that we are going to be using in the near future to interact with people all over the world. Let me know your thoughts on who you would like to Skype with and why. For those of you who don’t know what Skype is that is where you can communicate on the computer or via cell phone with people all over the world and it’s free…..even better!!!!

One thing that I learned from attending this class is that I already have the capability to start my paperless classroom through Gresham’s website. We already use the class blogs and we are going to start using the quiz option to take quizzes online and I am going to allow you all to upload a homework assignment very soon. These two options are going to be extremely easy to use and I think you are going to enjoy them. I will keep you posted about tomorrows class. Using Wikis and Podcasts. I’m sure I going to learn some amazing things!!! Don’t forget…BEHAVE
