CUE 2007 Palm Springs

I am sure that everyone would agree with me that going to CUE as a tech team was an amazing experience! I hope that everyone will make sure to give a big thank you to Lauren for making it happen this year. There were many incredible people speaking at the conference, including Chris Walsh who did some amazing things with Google, Ted Lai ( I can't say enough about him and Podcasting), author/illustrator Peter Reynolds was inspiring and charismatic and our own Eva Wagner with her mom Deborah Ferguson! We had some great opportunities to connect with other leaders and learn about new cools tips and tricks.

Sunday, January 21, 2007


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!:)
