I appreciate the almost endless possibilities to use various tools such as Protopage and Flickr in the classroom. It gives me the flexibility to differentiate instruction for the wide range of learning abilities I encounter on a daily basis.

Girls brains are always active, but boys brains need to be activated. I am excited to have interactive activities on a menu for students to extend their learning and hopefully engage all students, providing for students of varied levels and interests.

I am so excited to go and try out some of the interactive web sites in my guided reading groups. I was so amazed at the pictures you can use to create slide shows, and I am going to do a slide show with my whole class.

Many free resources are available, no need to spend tech funds on applications! I'm looking forward to using the interactive websites with my bunch!

My new learning-instructions for boys need to be less than 1 minute.
I plan to use Flickr info to create a project for my 4th grade GT group this week.

I love the interactive websites that were shown to us today. I am very excited to go back to my classroom and to try some of them out. It is great to walk away with some tangible ideas to implement right away. Thank you so much!

Kagen Cooperative Learning strategies go right along with all of the brain research about boy and girls learning styles. I plan on using the slide show right away with my kids.

Easy websites to help me while working with other students. Great websites!

I really appreciated all the hands on activities. The websites are extremely helpful and informative and being able to interact with the instructors coaching was helpful.

I'm creating a lesson where the boys will be drawing their ideas before writing. I didn't realize that in 35 industrialized countries the boys achievement was lower than girls. The opportunity to share and learn today will certainly help empower boys' learning!

I really enjoyed the flicker photo sharing, which I will be using in my class!

CCSD technology trainings are always of high caliber. Thanks! I am excited about using voicethread as an oral language building tool for my ELLs as well as all my 1st graders! It's similar to Seeing Stars with interactive and permanent record components.

Boys tend to be deductive in their reasoning, moving from the general to the specific. It was helpful to do the animal sort to see and experience what that could look like in our classes. I am very excited to try the voice thread with my ELA students. Hopefully it will help with some vocabulary and background knowledge.

It was powerful to know that the gender gap can be as broad as the achievement gaps regarding our kids of color. Just last year I heard in a class that ccsd had done a great job reducing the gender gap - is this not still true?
No matter which piece of the achievement gap we examine, it continuously becomes apparent that social interaction and high expectations are the key to success in closing and eliminating the gap.

I appreciate the well organized day allowing us to use our time to learn and create! My menu is planned and ready for all types of learning. The iPhoto movie is ready to "blast off" our star lab experience. This workshop can at a most appropriate time!

My AH HA---boys learn best while doing--to write and perform, to see a slide show and write, etc.---boys are able to tell about what they are doing, rather than what they are feeling.

I am very excited about the menu. I have been meaning to put one together (but never did) and now I can. And the many many interactive sites are amazing. So much to look at and use.

My biggest AH HA-boys need to draw before writing to help stimulate the language center of the brain.
I am excited about using voice thread with my kids.

I enjoyed learning about Voicethread and how to apply it in the primary classroom. I plan to use it with my first graders during their animal research project.

The interactive websites will be so useful in my classroom, I'm excited to go and try them out. Thanks for putting them all in an easy to find place. My Ah-Ha was really to reconfirm that teaching to boys is just really good teaching for all.

Since I have high energy group of boys, I need these resources. I have been using them and the interest level is higher. I am encouraged to use more.

The workshop exposed me to some really great websites and programs that will work wonders for the engagement of my students. I would like to work more with the voice thread program in the future.

I need to keep in mind the visual component for boys as well as the interactive aspect.
I plan on doing a menu board for a unit on Mysteries.

My moment was when we were allowed to visit the websites that are very interactive. I loved Quizlet.com because it is challenging and provided great quizzes that can be used at any age or level.

My moment is when I finally learned flikr! I can't wait to use it in my own classroom. Students really can process pictures so much faster. Thanks

I like the idea of using the voice thread with my low reading group. They are a group of boys who will enjoy the use of computers in their learning.

It was amazing to learn that boys tend to start school up to 1.5 years behind girls in language and fine motor development. This has great implications for providing these experiences at school. In the next few weeks, I would like to create and use a "Menu" of interactive web sites.

I can't believe that 75% of special ed. students are boys!! This was a heart breaking statistic to learn.
I plan on using my Flickr Storm slideshow as well as creating a few more to put to good use in my classroom!!! :)

I was very surprised to learn how much of an achievement gap there was between girl and boy learners. My big "ah ha" for the day was that we need to teach quite differently for boys and girls to be successful. This rings true in my classroom and I hope to implement more kinesthetic teaching strategies in my classroom to help boys become more successful and to help the girls learn in different ways.

It was interesting to find out more data on the achievement gap between boys and girls. I feel like I activities. I will be using my slide show this week with my kids so thanks for the time to create it.

I really enjoyed this training. I hope to narrow the gap between boys and girls by using technology like voicethread.com and spellingcity.com. I will definitely be using these tools that I learned today in my classroom!
