AARRGGG Network and Meet the teacher

The new Novel network we are using in our division is giving me fits. It will be great once whatever is going wrong on the other end (not my fault!!) gets fixed. I have been without network access on my Mac for 3 days. Boo hoo I know.

Here is why I am ranting. Check this out. For the first time I asked students to get Google Accounts at home instead of at school. I should have figured this out last year..... they all (90% of them) have done it at home. I will now create a screencast for joining their class blogs and ... wait for it ... we will be up and running. These kids are amazing.

Tomorrow is meet the teacher. Last year I used this post to welcome parents to . SargentParkMathzone. This year I am cranking it up a notch. I created a video hyping up why 2.0 and 21stC learning is important to me and my pedagogy. I hope they like it.

Here it is

I'll tell you how it goes over. I used the video Sheryl posted and mashed it up a bit.

Cool video. It was fun to watch. It will be interesting to hear what your student's parents thin of it. ;-)

I am impressed. And I want to be in your math class! I'm sure the parents will get it...or at least have a good time trying. :)

Wow! I really enjoy reading your blog. I'm going to have to make some plans for something like this next year. You raise the bar for me. I like how you pieced it all together.

njteacher thanks for the comment. I really had fun watching the original movie that I mashed up. My parents enjoyed the show too and are now onboard with blogging and 21stC learning.
