A Radio Interview About Keyboarding--No Surprise to Tech Teachers

Last week, I was invited to appear on BAM! radio–the voice of the education community–to discuss keyboarding. Does that sound benign? It’s possible when the producer found me through Ask a Tech Teacher, she wondered if a radio show revolving around keyboarding would be a yawner. But any tech teacher knows it’s a…

Hi There!
I was just browsing through your wiki and it is absolutely fabulous! You really have great ideas on there! One of the things that I was really curious about was your 'question board.' How is that used? Do you have the kids make a little video of how to do it? Or do they demonstrate it in front of the class? (I noticed the no 'ummmmms'.....) :-) I am hoping to do something like this in my class!

Thanks!
Angie

Jacqui....I just joined a site to receive your free posters. I'm not sure if I did it correctly. I have purchased afew of your books in the past. Please send me the free posters for my lab. Thanks so much.

Hi Barri, Are you Bar129? I just got that in my email. I'll be sending it out today. I hope you like them. I'm getting ready to use them in my K-5 classroom. 

 

Thanks for subscribing to my blog!

Hi Jacqui.....I had once read a list of "Teacher Resources - 50 Websites for Teachers" that you posted. Would you be able to send that to me again, I'd appreciate it. Enjoy your day and thanks.
At 9:49pm on October 25, 2011, Jacqui Murray said…

Ooh, I don't know which list that is. I have one that's 41 Websites to integrate tech into the classroom for teachers that's very popular. I have a list called Big List of Great Kids Websites. Do you want to check my blog, see if you can find it there?

 

Sorry, Barri.

Agreed! I follow your great blog and this site also through my Google Reader - I haven't really joined in here much though - just been an observer really... Maybe that will change now :)

Jacqui, you have a special talent that you enjoy sharing with the world. I would love to have a copy of your K-5 scope and sequence.
 Thank you.  Laurie at beem1992@yahoo.com
