MabryOnline Goes Interactive!

This is huge news!  I'm tremendously excited!  Today we are launching a whole new educational dimension in this revolution that is pervasive computing and pervasive connectivity.  Our original goal was to have these projects go online during the Fall of 2006.  We are 8 months ahead of schedule!

We are leveraging technology, technology that didn't even exist just a few years ago, to enhance our students' academic potential and help us go even further in reaching our school goal:  maximized student achievement. Two new projects begin!

The Mabry Global Learning Collaborative (MGLC)
You will notice the new graphic in the right sidebar, Mabry's Global Learning Collaborative.  Explore!  Learn!  You will not be disappointed.  We want to use technology to extend our students' learning experiences globally.  We invite the participation of teachers and students around the world.

Classroom Scribes
Several teachers in 7th and 8th grades will host guest authors on their classroom blogs:  selected students who will act as class scribes.  These students will take careful notes in class.  They have committed to posting their notes to the teacher's blog as soon as possible.  Once the notes are approved by the teacher, they go live (are published) to the world.  Not only does this afford the class scribes with an unparalleled opportunity for classroom content review, but it also means every student has access to review information at the click of a mouse!

The training for the scribes is scheduled this week.  They should begin posting (Do scribes scribble?) next week.  To see if your teacher has a classroom scribe, ask him/her or simply go to his/her blog next week and click on the "Scribe" link in the sidebar.
