Just for Fun

One of my seventh grade boys keeps trying to call me "Miss McTeach." And while I find that fairly amusing, I still need to command at least a modicum of respect from my students. "Let's stick with my real name, okay?"

That being said...how cool is this!! My nickname created with images from Flickr courtesy of a website that is being shared on Twitter this morning (I'd like to give credit where credit is due, but I've seen the link so many times today that I just can't remember where I saw it first). Spell With Flickr is the creation of Erik Kastner. You just type in the word or words you'd like to spell using images from Flickr and Spell With Flickr does the rest. It's just too much...

Fear Not!

This video of a four-year-old girl named Kylie working on her laptop is absolutely priceless! While the video is part of Microsoft's "I'm a PC" ad campaign, it's also a perfect video to show those teachers who are reluctant to integrate technology into their curriculum (and into their lives).

Shall we start a new ad campaign? "If Kylie can do it, so can I!"
