This week, Maria was sick and the chat room was not hopping. I guess everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays. But Sheila and Lisa did have one guest, who we were thrilled to call into our skype call to have her join the chat. Amanda Marrinan took time away from her beach vacation to talk with us about how technology is working in the classrooms. Sheila, Amanda, and Lisa shared many very exciting for us, and getting to be commonplace for the kids, activities that occur daily in our classrooms. Enjoy the conversation.
This week we were joined by Amanda Marrinan, who was in the same time zones as Lisa, Maria and Sheila! She was visiting Maria before heading to ISTE11. This week we discussed our professional and personal plans for the summer. Curriculum planning and having fun were at the top of the list!
This is our last show of the season. We will be taking time off for the summer, but will be back in the fall!
This week we discussed iPod Touch/iPhone apps in the classroom. Lisa was unable to join us but we were joined by Amanda Marrinan from Australia. Many of the apps can be found on Maria's wiki at http://classroomipodtouch.wikispaces.com.
This week, Sheila and Lisa were joined by Amanda Marrinan to discuss the topic of dealing with adults who say or do inept things in front of children. Who is responsible for saying something: the teacher who overhears, the children, or the administration? Maria Knee was missed this week but was well represented by Amanda, who graciously stayed up very late in Australia to join us.
