  1. If you are planning to write blog entries for:

    # MI Learning on iTunes U: Tips and Tools for Creating Video Resources Robinson 10:00 AM 11:00 AM. Presenter: Judy Paxton, and panel (including me!).
    # Starting a Virtual School Robinson 11:30 AM 12:30 PM. Presenter: Brandon Waggoner and Susan Smith.

    I would be happy to post them at Virtual High School Meanderings (or cross-post them), as I'm not able to attend this week.

  2. Thank you Mr. Sowash, I am a student in the EDM310 Micro-computing class at the University of South Alabama. My assignment is to monitor your blogs. As a future educator I really support educating your children through the use of technology. I hope more people would tap into this innovative way of learning. I hope the conference was a giant step in the right direction. I have listed our class blog and my personal class blog for any feedback. Class blog address is edm310.blogspot.com and my personal account is KingLamaredm310.blogspot.com.

    Thanks

  3. Mr. Sowash,
    I am a student in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at the University of South Alabama. I was told to comment on your blog for two weeks. I will be posting my comments on my class blog at http://mcnortonkedm310.blogspot.com. This blog showed me that teachers should keep educating themselves in new technology. This blog also helped me build up my PLN with helpful and useful people in the technology/education field. Thanks so much for sharing.
    Thanks,
    Kimberly McNorton
