So my #unintro  went a little differently than anyone else's but that is sort of the point isn't it?

The eAnthology was my favorite part of the Summer Institute in 2009.  It is fabulous that we can connect even more easily now.

Tomorrow morning kicks off the Appleseed Writing Project Summer Institute in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  We are very excited for this year's fellows and can't wait to see what incredible writing they will do in the next few weeks.  Hope to engage all the other projects this summer!

The CLMOOC is a great way to get involved digitally with other educators.

Quick question for those you using GAFE -- my district is not going to go Google, despite my efforts to the contrary.  However, a professional learning entity I am a part of is looking for some ways to do webinars and e-learning and I'm leaning very much towards Google Classroom because our national network of this entity uses the Google line.  As I was signing up for apps, I saw that there was an $8 a year fee for a domain name.  Is this the only fee that would be incurred and how well do you think Google Classroom would work for some distance learning for about 30 - 50 teachers at a time?  Thank you so much for your help!

My task is rather ambitious, but very exciting.  As an instructional coach in my high school, I try to "give" my teachers as much "ready to use" materials as possible.  Usually, this is a short ready-to-go lesson that follows best practices and is tied tightly to our state standards.  For this, however, I'm envisioning a much broader lesson plan where I have gathered resources and set parameters for a multi-media writing task that analyzes Shakespeare.  I envision a Google Site in which I provide everything needed to teach the lesson and teacher pages with template student pages attached.  As a tech coordinator as well, I am hoping that "if you build it, they will come" and this will lead to broader use in my teacher's classrooms.  If you are interested in updates, tweet me @Amy_English and I will make sure I keep a copy of my Google Site Public so you can "steal" whatever you want.   #AppleseedWP  

I am working on a multimedia task that can be differentiated by my teachers studying Shakespeare next term and getting excited.  It is shaping up nicely. #AppleseedWP
