Web Based Inspiration

A great tool shared with me in my search for free Inspiration like web based software:

No user name or email required to use the mind-mapping software.

Kudos to @usamimi74 for sharing.

Where has the monthly maintenance gone?

In order to get in this months maintenance routine, there will be no formal calendar demonstrating when we will be arriving. When the opportunity arrives we will come to your class and collect a few student laptops from the cart to install two new programs, VLC and Open Office. Once the programs are installed we will return them to your cart, and repeat the process until all the student laptops have the software installed.

VLC is a media player that plays a HUGE variety of media file types. 

Open Office has many potentials for use in your classrooms, primarily it will open MANY version of “Word” file types and versions.

Lastly, I will be getting around to every projector to clean them out.

I have decided to attend a Moodle class, as it has been mention many times in the building. I have researched Moodles and have found a lot of technical work and systems that must be put in to place before even creating one.

I hope to learn more information form this basics class to get a bas level of understadning. From my research I have found Moodles to be a very powerful tool that has high potential for many various facets of education with in our Middle School world. A door I do not yet wish to open till we have a bigger and better idea of what a Moodle could do for us.

Here we go then…

Tomorrow is the Missouri Educators Technology Conference. How exciting. Unfortunately there seems to be some sort of snowy curse associated with it. Last year just about every school in the St. Louis area was called off, thus creating very few visitors to METC. I myself missed it last year, and I do not wish to miss it again this year. I am rather excited to get there and take it all in. Let’s hope the roads are cleared by tomorrow morning.

Test Chat post

The infamous test post

Of course here is the obvious first post. It is a must. A test if you will, to see how things will work out, what will need to be tweaked, etc. etc.
