This day was an excellent. It energized and motivated me to continue several projects I have started but not yet followed through on. I learned or relearned abut many WEB 2.0 applications and how fellow teachers are using them in the classroom. I was able to problem solve about the best way to publish my students' pictures and voice recordings. I've got some great ideas-some of which I will be able to get to by the end of the school year and some I can play with over the summer for next year. Emily spent time showing me about Photo Story.
I am particularly excited about two collaborative projects. My second grade class will share questions and answers about our story of the week with Sara Zaleski's second grade class. Jon Fisher and I are planning to have my class share life as a second grader with his first graders. My students will be very excited. I think it will be a great balance to all the end of the year testing we are about to begin.
