Here's Whats New!

What something else added to the tech site?

  • Send a work order  :-D  I prefer this over e-mail because they tend to get buried in my inbox. 
  • If you have a site that you use with your students or a project that you want uploaded so they can have quick access to sites/resources just let me know and I'll get it added.

There is still a few days that have full availability next week.  This could be a huge motivator in keeping the students focused before the break.  Sign up soon to ensure your classes spot!

How technology makes the world a better place essay contest with $ prizes for grades 3-12

For any of you who may be interested, I saw the following essay contest announced on the Free Technology for Teachers Blog yesterday.  Looked interesting!



The Tween Tribune is currently holding a 100 word essay contest for students in grades 3 through 12. Tween Tribune will award $500 prizes to the winners in each grade and five $100 prizes to runners-up in each grade. Student essays should address the prompt, "how technology makes the world a better place." Entries are due by January 16, 2011. You can read all of the contest details here.

Applications for Education
Writing concisely can be a challenge for some students. Writing for this contest provides students with a good opportunity to practice the art of writing concisely. The $500 prize is a nice incentive too.
