Cosmeo is Here!
Cosmeo (powered by Discovery Channel) is a web-based homework aid that includes more than 30,000 video clips, thousands of documents, pictures, brain games and links to "trusted" websites.  It is receiving a lot of press (CNN last night) and commercials for it are all over the place.  We even have a time slot on American Idol this week.  The cool part about the roll out of Cosmeo is that your school/district can make money from it!  One of the strategies for getting Cosmeo into the homes is for schools to use it as a fundraiser.  If families in your school sign up for Cosmeo, your school gets $$$.  And, it is a fundraiser that needs little to no leg work.  If you want to know more, let me know.
