•http://prezi.com/: Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides.
•http://edu.glogster.com/: Make your interactive poster online and share it with friends. Mix Images, Text, Music and Video. It is fantastic!

I’ll also be talking about Making_Claymation_in_the_Classroom and Stop Motion Video using an iPhone. There are many Stop Motion apps on iTunes…here’s one called Vine https://itunes.apple.com/app/vine-make-a-scene/id592447445 as you have seen in Common Craft’s videos. Really fun stuff!
If you do happen to try anything out, please let me know what you created and how you used it in your classroom. Thanks, in advance, for sharing!

5EdCs of Teaching:Learning in in 2013
Here’s an example of one of my student’s eportfolios and a great example of the 5EdCs in motion:
create infographics with visual.ly
This was the easiest thing to do! All you have to do is fill in your information to LinkedIn and then go to Visual.ly and click on the Create Tab at the top. Click the theme you want and embed away! The only thing I can’t control is my year’s of experience…says 23.9 years but it is really 13 years.
Welcome to our first Educator’s Community of Practice for Spring 2013. As promised, I waited for Song Contest to start us up again so I hope you all had a restful Spring Break! Today, we will be exploring how and why teaching students how to make good inferences is important to their own decision and life making. Here are the slides we will be discussing. Should you have any questions, please contact me.
Wrapped in an overview and compelling argument about how our life decisions are founded in our own perspectives of time, I wonder if teachers, parents, and even administrators might be informed by Dr. Zimbago’s lecture on Time Perspectives.
At your convenience, please watch his mesmerizing lecture (2010) to better help understand how we might be able to help our students, coworkers, and ourselves make better life decisions.

Spring ’13 Parent Internet Safety Presentation copy
For those of you who attended the Internet Safety Presentation this past week asked some good questions and engaged in some awesome discussion points. As requested, here are the slides from the presentation.
Should you have any questions, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s the screenshot tutorial I made to discuss some of the collaborative tools we could use to help each other out. I have also shown you how to create a Google Doc in the Shared Folder so that you don’t have to email anything anymore and everything will have the appropriate naming protocol. Let me know if you have any questions.
