Hello everyone! I am working on a research project which explores teacher and principal beliefs of how much they are able to positively effect student achievement while operating under federal sanctions. I am looking for elementary teachers and principals to take part in this study. If you are interested in knowing more, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or go directly to the survey by following one of the links below. Thanks !
Newest member of the Elemchat group. I am a second grade teacher from Montana. My specific areas of interest are differentiation and technology integration. In addition to teaching, I also work as a Digital Learning Consultant for CFY and I provide technology integration services. I am excited about the opportunity to grow my PLN and learn alongside all of you.
I am really excited about participating in this group and I am looking forward to the next chat!
Spellathon is a free teaching resource for English spelling practice in the classroom and at home. Its fun, competitive and engaging.
Spellathon is also the biggest sponsored global spelling competition ever. All Schools, Colleges and University Unions will receive 25% of the income fundraised by their students!
Spellathon has been a successful, paper based annual fundraising event for learning disability charity Mencap for the last 18 years. In 2011 , by applying online, laptops, mobiles, tablets and smart whiteboard technologies with state -of-the-art 3D animation, Spellathon has reached a global audience.
Registration is now open for all Schools, Colleges and Universities from around the world, to receive a personal invitation from Stephen Fry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry) and a Free Digital Schools Pack that will contain the interactive whiteboard game, assembly video, pre-populated digital marketing materials and everything else they need to take part. Stephen Fry has said: "This is just about the best integration of imagination, education, technology inclusiveness and fun that I've ever encountered.
Spellathon is also available for whiteboards from either Promethean Planet or Smart Technologies.
I have posted a video to introduce Spellathon on my home page blog.

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...
I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!
My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.
I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.
If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.
We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!
Our twitter address is: www.twitter.com/rosselmulaire
Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.
