Techology Meets Room 38!

I found out on Friday morning that I "won" an Elmo (digital document camera) and a projector for my classroom. I was so excited. I spent the morning trying to set it up and by math time I was rolling. It is so, so awesome. Gone are the days of overheads...I don't need them. I simply place whatever I want to show the students under the camera and it shows up...amazing!

On Friday I also signed up for a Technology in the Classroom course. The class is about podcasting with your students. My big project for the course will be designing two lessons based around podcasting. It sounds like a lot of fun.

Teachers: Have you podcasted with your class before? If so...what did you podcast about?

That is awesome!

We're supposed to get them in our new building. We're not holding our breaths though.

I haven't podcasted, but I really want to. Let us know how it goes.
