ActivBoard

I attended an ActivBoard Basics training at Brunson Elementary today. I learned some things and got some ideas to try. I liked seeing the things I had read about being demonstrated, like the ticker tape. I learned about adding more colors to the flipchart and how to add resources to the resource library from Promethean Planet. There is a 15 questions quest/contest at Promethean Planet right now. I have all but one answer and it has stumped me for days! I hope Emory will let me know when he does the next level of ActivBoard training.

Marzano High Yield Strategies

I have been looking at the Technology Integration book that goes along with Marzano's High Yield Strategies. Mrs. Frazier asked me to present some of the things I have found when she did the review session. I found a website that has lots of graphic organizers, templates, and lesson ideas for the various strategies. I used some images from that website to create a ppt to share at the staff meeting. I also put a link to the site in the ppt. The presentation seemed to be well received. I also showed teachers how to get to the Marzano folder in the S drive where I put a copy of the presentation and some other things realted to Marzano. I was unsure of how the younger grades might be able to use what I had to present. I was very pleased to have questions and comments from some Kindergarten teachers followed by ideas on how they thought they might be able to use some of the stuff presented.

Wiki

I used pbwiki to create a wiki for my AIG/Enrichment students to use for collaboration on their PBL projects. I received an email from them each day for the first week with an instruction on how to add or edit something on the wiki. Even though I waited to do all 7 instructions at once, the instructions really helped me understand what to do with the wiki and how to set it up. There is a link to the mrsedwardsenrichment wiki on the students blogs that I have created. I was able to set up accounts for my students to comment even though they don't have email addresses.
