About Me
I love the current technology available today. My 6th graders created Glogsters from their online story "Callahan Cousins". They did a great job and really enjoyed it. Their Glogsters contained embedded video where they acted out a scene from the story.
My TouchSystems class did a very innovative PowerPoint Slide with text, graphics, music, and i had them do digital voice on their powerpoint. So basically they read the PPS text which made it much more interesting than having to read.
I am a member of TCEA and the Area Wide TCEA Region VII.
