      Some type of global interaction. Possibly working on a problem solving project with students abroad.
      Units that will fit into homeroom curriculum, especially in jk-1 grades.
      Also am curious about how to collaborate
      with other classes to collect and analyze data.
      Developing a unit for boys on the book The Aurora County All-Stars by Deborah Wiles.
      Any Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 Concept.
      Collect and post 1-minute presentations of student learning projects.
      …collaborative aspects of tech in the classroom.
      use technology to enhance their social studies (history and/or culture study) or science instruction.
      A unit relating to reading, writing, math or social studies curriculum.
      produce a Professional Development module for facilitating the value of using Videoconferencing or web2.0 in the classroom.
      I would like to learn more about how to use technology with the language arts.
      …technology as tool for differentiated learning.
      Character education and/or social skills development for first or third grades.

      Teaching successfully with emerging technologies requires:
      • A spirit of experimentation
      • Willingness to engage learners in the creation of learning resources (co-creation of content)
      • Willingness to “let go” of control and content presentation approaches to teaching
      • Tolerance of failure
      From Handbook or Emerging Technologies for Learning- Siemens and Tittenberger

      A single Web 2.0 application can address nearly ALL those wants?

    • 33. Voicethread Tips
      Plan ahead
      Storyboard
      Use “Save to .JPG” option to create images
      Use Keynote or PowerPoint for “heavy lifting” (organizing content)
      Import images & record audio
      Loud speaking can make audio recording cut out
      Be prepared to re-record until satisfied
      Have students choose icons for their accounts
      Use ‘Doodle’ feature sparingly
