Kudos to fellow K-12 VC Bloggers-

Have you heard the old saying, "A shoemakers children never have shoes?"

After weeks of vc flurry- I FINALLY had a chance to catch up on what others are doing in K-12 VC-land :-)

New York:
WOW! Andrea Isreli adding vc to a project called, "A Square of Life" (students measure a square meter of ground and record what they find) and comparing results between students in NY & AZ. Check out her blog posting on the exchange!

As always- Janine Lim (my vc hero) is cooking up cool stuff! Check out THIS link to her blog posting on the Musical Geography of America

Students from Missouri and Ohio have been exchanging clues about their states and cities for the past month. The classes collected items that their students felt represented their community and sent them to each other through US mail prior to the videoconference. What an amazing problem solving activity that enhances geography, measurement, communities reading and writing!

Scott Merrick (who I SWEAR has more hours in his day than ANYONE I know) is always seeking new and improved ways to communicate- podcasting, blogging, desktop IVC'ing AND gettin all WIKI with it! Check out his NECC challenge and submit a brief video on how YOU are using desktop IVC in your classroom!

Great job all ye movers and shakers in K-12 VC-land! J-ro
