Whiteboard Challenge

The Seven Wonders of the Whiteboard Challenge - is another great collaborative effort by motivated educators. The use of interactive whiteboards in classrooms has taken off in recent years - and has really exploded in recent months. I just found this wiki and want to help spread the word.

SMARTBoard and Promethean, the two types that I know about, are purchased for schools to make teaching more effective. Many schools have found - as with every educational effort - that it still depends on the teacher using the product. Websites are springing up all over to help new and experienced users make the most of their time learning to use this new technology. The Whiteboard Challenge includes more of the the best resources too. Check it out soon...and spread the word - it's nice to share!

Calling for Collaborative projects for SCRATCH Posts

Technology classes are preparing projects to post on our pages at wikispaces. At least one section will be favorite projects created in Scratch. Since the conference at MIT, a group of us who met there are planning collaborative projects. Our classes are in states from each US coastline and a few in between.

Consider using Scratch in your classes and sharing Scratch news, ideas, and projects too. Contact me - JoNelle Gardner, Technology Specialist at or watch us grow at:
