Many years ago, my pal Andy Lummis and I put our classes together to produce a Flash slideshow that could be played behind students performing John Mcrae’s “In Flanders Fields”. In a nutshell, my high school students created the media and Andy’s elementary students rehearsed, practiced and performed the rendition. When it was over, we created a stand-alone version that could be played without student performances. Andy is no longer at Dovercourt School; I’m no longer at Jasper Place High School and our students are all long grown into adulthood but we continue to offer their legacy work for educational purposes for any who might be able to use it. Thanks to the many who continue to ask after it every year!

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.
