Hello everyone! I’ve been asked about web 2.0 tools that can be used in the classroom. The folks at Discovery Education have put together a wonderful site that compiles many different web 2.0 tools and puts them into categories so it is easy to find what you need.

To learn more, check out: web2010.discoveryeducation.com

Let me know what you think Smile
Have a GREAT day!

Weightless Flight of Discovery

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Erin Yagi on 28-08-2010

Hi all!

I’m so excited! 2 other STAR teachers and I went to training today for our weightless flight in a couple of months. It sounds so exciting and what a wonderful learning experience for us!

 If anyone has any ideas for a lab we can do while onboard, please comment to this post and let me know your idea…it may just make it onto the flight with us!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

Edmodo

If anyone hasn’t heard of Edmodo, it is a super website. My students comment that it is, “like Facebook, but better!” (Can you imagine them thinking that anything is better than Facebook? heehee!)

They are constantly adding new services and enhancing the ones that they have now. Best of all the site is free.

With Edmodo you can post messages, assign work, have students turn in work, create polls, discuss topics, etc. The students are also able to post messages to the teacher or to the class…but not to each other! This makes it easier to monitor and manage.

Check out the website at: www.edmodo.com

Have a WONDERFUL day!

With a year full of furloughs, budget cuts, renovations, and endless packing, DE has been a ray of sunshine! We have all enjoyed getting to know this resource and can’t wait to use it next year.

Have a GREAT summer everyone!
