New Recommeded Site- Harveys Homepage

So today I met Harvey Almorode who is an educational consultant for SMART in the US. He has created all  his own content and posted it on his site. It is phenomenal content, and he is willing to share. Harvey is big into Brain Based learning and encourages knowledge of that into his lessons. I posted his site in my favorite links section. Check out function man on the link below. You can use it for functions, predicting or change it for ELA. One lady shared that she put an English word in one side and the French word comes out the other. Take this activity and tinker with it to make it your own. Enjoy.Harvey's Homepage

SMART Showcase School

In May of 2008, I received the designation of SMART Exemplary Educator, and I won the Prime Ministers Award for Excellence in Teaching, and my school, Davison Elementary School received the designation of becoming a SMART Showcase School. These designations combined with Davison's status as a CAP Site (Community Access Program) has attracted a lot of attention to our school from people throughout Saskatchewan. On average we have 2-3 people visit our school per week. Throughout the 2008/09 School year we have upwards of 100 visitors. Today is an exciting day because Davison's hard work and determination in the area of technology has received interprovincial recognition. Please click on the blog posting below to read how a grad student from the University of Alberta recognizes Davison's progress with Technology Integration.
