Hi everyone,
It’s been a while and I have a few things to tell you. The first is about in-service forms. You know how we’ve always had to fill in an out-of-district inservice request both on My Learning Plan AND in writing? Well, Dr. Fasano and I have worked it out so now you just need to submit it on MLP, then PRINT it and send to Dr. Fasano for his signature. That was actually the sticking point. The State requires his signature.

I know it’s a pain to fill in all of your previous in-service classes but a shortcut would be to save them in Word and just copy and paste each time.

I went to the NYSCATE Metro conference yesterday and learned some very neat things. One is a website similar to Thinkfinity that is a treasure chest of lesson plans and interactives free for our use. Another is a virtual world similar to Second Life but this one is a protected environment that is being purchased by BOCES for school district use. And then of course so many more Web 2.0 tools. I am going to work on highlighting a tool every other week so if you find any that you really love, please let me know!

Have a great day!
