I have watched your site for several years and am continually impressed by your creative ideas and energy.
After seeing your recommendation for the FLIP videocamera that is so easy to use, our 4th grade team applied for and received a grant to make our 4th grade students into "historians" next year. It is the year of the Arizona Centennial, and each class will receive a video camera and snapshot camera, plus other necessary technology accessories. Our students reporters will go to K-5 classrooms to record their centennial activities. Then each 4th grade class will write captions and explanatory notes, and all these will be put together for a documentary DVD in a 4th grade after school club for the end of the year.
We are excited about this! I just want you to know that this is inspired by your website. Thanks!
