List member, Nicole Anderson, is really excited about this site and app called Educreations. Here’s her description: “[EduCreations] is a very simple to use whiteboard-ish screen that lets you write with your finger or type text anywhere on imported pictures or different kinds of provided lined paper or on a white page. But the best part is that it allows you to record your voice while you’re working then sends it to your web account where it is saved as a video clip so you can share the student’s work with audio with your class on a projector, email it, etc. I am using it for a student with mild cerebral palsy. We can take a picture of the worksheet and she can complete it on the ipad. Or using it in math class to record students problem solving and mental math strategies WHILE they are solving instead of me scribing (student independence!!!) or the student trying to write down how they solved it afterwards. How about showing the class 2 students working on a problem together and the conversation they engage in. I think it can also be used just on the internet with a headset but the app makes it so accessible!”

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
