FYI - The American Library Association is celebrating Teen Tech Week - Geek Out @ Your Library, March 4 - 10. I am brainstorming now for events to sponsor that week. Great avenue to highlight digital learning. :)

Utilizing Acuity and West Virginia Writes is an excellent way to incorporate technology in the classroom. The impact it has on student scores in really awesome. I have been working with homebound students using both techniques. At first they struggles, but after the 2nd or 3rd time of getting in the program and working through the process they are asking questions and discussing that is a great improvement. I am really proud of them. Looking forward to hopefully seeing better scores.

There are many other programs available that are helpful. The two above are at our finger tips.

I would love to have the prek students at Frankford Elementary as a feature for Feb 1st WV's First Digital Learning Day! You can read the official email below from the state superintendents office. I was featured in an article in August about winning the ING Unsung Heroes grant. I would love to showcase how the money has been used to help bring some of our local students into the 21st century of learning through the use of iPads.

Twittter Connection-While doing unit on careers in music, we discussed how the internet has changed the game for performers. We used Twitter to connect with one artist who embraced using the internet to market himself early in this career.
Composing-Students used online sites such as The Music Lab atlooplabs.com and Roc at aviary.com to create original pieces and to remix existing songs.
