Today’s site is the result of a great amount of effort by my friends,
Kathleen Maser; Terri Notdorft , Julia Walsh, Sandra Gluth and their
students from Rutherford School here in Edmonton AND my own 10-level
students!? Here’s how it worked:? The grade four group from Rutherford
has been studying our Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Southern Alberta
and as a part of their work.? They used MS Paint to illustrate an aspect
of Native life around the Jump.? They then sent the drawings to my
hypermedia students who used Flash to animate them.? But the cool thing
is the blog they used to communicate with each other.? My students were
required to animate according to the instructions provided on the blog
by the younger group.? We invite you to view the artwork, conversations
and animations on the blog.

Thinking of Using Dropbox?
One way you can help me out is to use my link to sign up for DropBox. If you sign up from here by clicking the link above, the bonus for me is that I get a bit more space to use in my work. And I'm eternally grateful for the boost! -Pete

Belize Literacy Program
In November 2012, members of the Belize Ministry of Education, principals, and lead teachers met in each of the six districts for two days of conversations and discussions around the challenges and next steps in integrating technology to support teaching and learning in Belize. The sessions highlighted global trends and challenges from the K-12 Horizon Report, the National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for students, teachers, and administrators, as well as an overview of the content from the August 2012 technology workshop for teachers.Learn more about this Rotary initiative
