Thanks to the wonder of twitter and @MissZadorozny and her blog I found ToonDoo today. It's online and very easy to use. I have made comics online before, using make beliefs comix, but ToonDoo takes the online comic making experience to a whole new level. There are many more characters and clips available and ToonDoo also gives me the ability to draw and create unique characters (TraitRs: not the best name for them in my opinion).
It's got me excited to make some comics and it's ease makes me think it will work great in the classroom. It makes comic creation easy for everyone. It's a great way to engage visual learners and to use the viewing and representing arts in ELA.

Science Fair 2.0

When I came across this I was so excited. A global science fair is such a neat idea. As a teacher it enables me to teach ICT literacy skills, the scientific method, and global awareness all together! It gives students an exciting audience. There are even lessons and resources supplied @ to make bringing this into the classroom even easier. Everyone teaching science to children ages 13-18 should take a look.
