Add to My LockerWeb Site
Bembo's Zoo

By Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich
At this site, you will find an alphabet "book" online, beautifully realized by graphic artist Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich. You need to have Flash installed, but if you don't have it, there is a link on the home page to get it. Then, pick a letter, and you will see the name of an animal that starts with that letter, and the letters of the word itself transform into that animal.

"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.

At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
