Visual dictionaries are a great way to increase vocabulary. Using Book creator is a simple way to create vocab books. Thank you +Kurt Klynen for the share.

Great way to incorporate slices and art.
 
Technology always gets me excited, especially when it is being used by children in education. Last week I had the privilege of visiting a few schools during the BETT event in London. Schools were p…

Join us in Nashville to learn how we make books for edu.
 
We're pleased to announce the first-ever Book Creator Conference, taking place Saturday, October 8 in Nashville, Tennessee!  www.BookCreatorConference.com

This will be at the same location as the iBooks Author Conference (the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center), but the day after, as we believe this event will be of natural interest (like the Hype Conference) to iBooks Author content creators.

The Two Dans (of Red Jumper, the company behind Book Creator) will kick things off with a video message.  We're pleased to have their support in bringing to life this special event and hosting it here in the United States.

The Book Creator Conference is $149 to attend, or free for those who register for the iBooks Author Conference on or before May 31.  Thanks for Anthony DiLaura hosting this group, as always, and allowing promotional posts like this as well which most members of this group will likely find of interest.

Great story. +Marco Antonio Torres Thank you for reminding us that #yourstorymatters
 
Bearden MS. Knoxville, Tn.

When I asked students who helped us, "What was your favorite part of the day", Sebi (student) said, "I loved learning today. I didn't want the day to end."

As a teacher, how do you NOT walk a little taller after that. Rosa and I were so moved with today's gifts!

Coaches and Storytellers -- you make the world a better place for the kids. Don't forget that. My lessons learned today were: (1) include the kids in your problem solving journey! They will be better because of it! (2) Help your teachers problem solve with kids. Also, (3) it's not about technology and how it can "fit" into my lessons, but, how can we enhance the learning/ assignments/ projects with technology.

To add, Mr. Meade (Social Studies) said, "we have to use EVERY OPPORTUNITY possible to help kids have more tools to be successful." This quote reminded me that, for teachers, technology is an opportunity to provide those options for our kids. Our fears can reduce those options if we make it about the teacher first. Thanks, Mr Meade, for the reminder as to why this is the right thing to do.

Team leaders: +Kayla Canario, +Michael Weininger, +Angie Manis-- it was a REMARKABLE day! Thanks for everything you did to make today a priority. These images were some of my favorite moments.

Thank you, kids, for being Amazing!

Your cheerleader.

Larry Page, Google Founder, Is Still Innovator in Chief http://flip.it/WzZa_
Mr. Page is hardly the first Silicon Valley chief with a case of intellectual wanderlust, but to a rare degree he has made his company a reflection of his personal fascinations.
