    We are glad that you are here and we hope these sessions are much a conversation aboutWelcome to the potentialWorkshop
    Rational: Given the financial constraints and issues
    of technology acrossaccess to meaningful technology, the curriculum as itWestern Massachusetts Writing Project believes that educators can still utilize no-cost online tools for classroom instruction and student learning. Of course, sometimes "free" is not really free, particularly when it comes to advertising on such sites, or lack of technical support, or minimal applications. It's always good to be wary and knowledgeable about any site you use with your students.
    Activity One:
    Head to my Wallwisher
    Add
    a learning experience for you.
    Follow these links
    "sticky note" that explains one way that you have used (or tried to bringuse) technology with your students
    I'll then walk
    you through how to the agendause Wallwisher
    We'll brainstorm ways you might be able to use a site like this
    for eachyour classroom.
    Activity Two:
    Head to Make Beliefs Comics
    Create a comic that makes fun
    of teaching (but be nice!)
    I'll explain a bit about
    the three sessions:
    Connecting
    world of webcomics
    We'll brainstorm ways that you might use the site for classroom instruction.
    Activity Three:
    Head
    to Glogster.edu (which is different than the World: Social networkingpublic Glogster)
    I'll give you a login and password to use.
    Create a Glog about a favorite book or author or television show or movie.
    I'll talk about what Glogster is and how to get set up your own site.
    Virtual Exit Slip:
    We'll use Wallwisher again.
    Which tool could you see using your classroom and how would you use it?
    (Extension Activities)
    Activity:
    Head to Piclits
    Choose an image and write a story
    We'll brainstorm ways that you might use Piclits
    for teacherswriting and students

    We have had so many problems with edublogs over the last couple of weeks as well and it is most annoying. I am a bit like Bonnie although I am actually glad that I am not leaving on a jet plane for a while as I have really enjoyed being home again on our farm, so my song for this week is "Take me home country road" by John Denver

    Amy: Today I'm not working on my own writing, but trying to be be a helpful critique-r person...I took time out to visit your blog, just so that I'd have something else to ponder for awhile. Delightful twist on the "Day in a Sentence" routine! The following lyrics are stuck in my head: "Well, it's hard to be a gambler betting on the number that changes every time...she's a complicated lady, so color my baby, moody blue." Maybe the Elvis reference triggered it...but there you go. I'm feeling colored moody.

    Hi Amy,
    I like this prompt a lot as well but every time I clicked to this wiki page, I drew a blank, but I do have an easy song to satisfy my j
    trip that begins on Sunday. I am leaving on the jet plane( Peter, Paul and Mary)and I do know when I'll be back again.
    It's a strange time to be traveling outside the US given the economy and upcoming election but a trip is a trip to enjoy!
    We won't be away for long; just long enough to feel the unique life in Israel and our love of being there.
    Can't wait to test my new Hebrew after a few months of on Hebrew 101.

    I think I may have figured this thing out:
    I really like this prompt! But I really suck at the wiki. {http://amykenyon.edublogs.org/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif} :)
    Anyway…my song is “Taking the Long Way” by the Dixie Chicks.
    “I never seem to do it like anybody else…but if you ever want to find me I can still be found, taking the long way!” I left out a few words, but this sums up my inability to take the easy way or simply go with the flow. This week I broke the news to parents in my class that I am not a homework teacher. This is going to create some waves amongst my homework-giving colleagues. But I am still not going to do it!
