Ahhh! I just filled out the application for the DEN STAR Institute. I went last summer and loved it. I learned so much and had a great time in the process. If you have not done it, you should do so! It is worth the plane fare! Of course if you make and I don’t, I’ll be super sad, but at least the best people get to go! Good Luck!
I presented at ICE, here in Illinois back Feb 26th. I created a wikispace for it for people to look at some lessons I have done in my classroom. There are links, lessons and such that might prove useful. Here is the link, and please let me know if you find it useful or helpful!
I also went to a presentation by Lucy Gray that was helpful about Google and the resources/lesson ideas they provide…Here is the link to her presentation and information. Again, I found it useful and can’t wait to try some of it in my classroom. I already use the search tool, you’ll see it in my wiki, but she also introduced me to other tools I didn’t know about!
