OC CUE was a lot of fun.
I had a good turn out for my Movie Magic class and a small turnout for Top 10 sites for Kids but I was happy that I showed great sites no one had heard of before.

I also attended a session on United Streaming and there are a lot of new features and a Teacher Center that I would have never known about or thought to use in my class. They also have a network available called the DEN (Discovery Educator's Network) that is a free sign-up and gives you access to teacher made powerpoints using videos, plus opportunities to meet and brainstorm with other educators.

It was great to have Woodland represent! 7 of our teachers went and will hopefully share their experience with you. We made out with a good share of the prizes as well, including an AlphaSmart, Laker Tickets, a pen drive and more!:)

I really enjoyed OCCUE too! I am exctied again to get my websites in order so I can use the great resouces and student sites easily. I am going to sit down and organize my furl account! I also was excited to learn a little about garageband. What a great program to have students make their own music, rhythems, raps and so on!Does Theresa know about this?

I loved atttending OC CUE. A Big thank you to Lauren for paying for us. I was inspired yet again by podcasting guru Ted Lai and saw some really cool things to do with a video ipod with Hall Davidson. Both excellent speakers and fun to listen to. I feel much more excited about tech and was able to talk to other schools going through tech 1 certification. We are not alone!! Thank you to Eva for doing a great job as my partner in tech. You inspire me.

I really enjoyed OCCUE Festival. This year my goal is to complete my Level II certification, and I thought this would be a good way to get motivated to use more technology in the classroom. Thank you CC Ordaz for encouraging me to sign-up for this festival! Learning about the different uses of technology in the classroom makes you want to use the technology and invest in new materials (i.e. an Ipod movie can make life so much easier!). I got some good websites in one of the sessions. You all might like this site http://www.iknowthat.com . I am ready to use the science lab about the weather this week with my classroom!
I liked it so much that I joined CUE! I hope to continue exploring technology at Woodland through our PLCs.

I hope more teachers can find the time to go to OC CUE in the future. The sessions are presented by our peers who know the challenges of integrating technology into the school day. The children's showcases were inspiring to see. There were children from kindergarten and throughout the different grades and through high school presenting their projects. They were all so enthusiastic about explaining their projects. You could see just how much they had learned.
