*Can’t Wait to Read it video podcasts

We have just finished recording over 45 podcasts recommending books from the BookFair that they haven’t read yet. They will be posted over the next month or so as they are shown on our Lunch Movietime during student lunches.

*Can’t Wait to Read it directions

At the bottom of this page you’ll see how we did this assignment using Spicynodes last Apring. When we got the iPads we took off! The technology is finally so intuitive that we learned to use the tools quickly!

These aren’t posted on our VLC yet, but they are created and hosted on my Vimeo account, which you can also peruse and see other videos created to share information and knowledge. Videos I created to share with professors as work product are also there.

*Dr. Seuss Birthday Bash Learning Space

*WebConferencing page 2012

*WebConferencing page 2011


The Dr. Seuss Birthday Bash is an example of curation over time. There are opening pages for each celebration for the past several years...the trivia challenge and other pages have added links and content as students comment along the way and find more info. This is an example of building collaborative intelligence over time!

Wax Museum Research Links

Oakland Zoo Trip

Some examples of using Comment boxes within learning spaces:


Letters to the Lorax

Talk About Dr. Seuss Books

Take the Earth Day Pledge

What do you like about Book Fairs?


Summer@Bay Farm Link

Math Facts Page 2-3 links to Arcademic Builders
