Congratulations to the talented video teams at John Ehrhardt and Robert J. Fite Elementary Schools! Both sites were awarded $2,000 grants from Big Lots based on their applications and accompanying videos:
Kudos to both filmmaking crews! It’s very exciting to students stepping up and taking action to benefit their school sites!
On Tuesday, we’ll be sharing the presentation below at CTAP3′s Ed Tech Leadership meeting. The topic is student-created content, something we’re rather passionate about showcasing in the Beyond blog.
We used Google’s slideshow program in order to make it easy for teachers across the district and region to add to the resources and showcase student projects. You are warmly invited to add to the presentation!

"For educators, the potential changes in the ways our teachers teach and students learn are momentous. The tools of the new Internet give us opportunities for collaborations and for constructivist learning, and allow students to become meaningful contributors to the vast body of knowledge that is the Internet." ~Will Richardson
