    2009-2010
    47% of the 56 Innovative Teaching Assessment respondents voted that Time to Learn, Practice and Plan is the greatest obstacle to further using technology in the instructional setting. Well, I am pleased to say that plans are worked out for upcoming voluntary
    innovative teaching workshops to address this obstacle. These workshops will be offered as half day sessions, with two topics in a day. Teachers can sign up for a half day (one topic) or a whole day (two topics). Here are the planned topics and dates (location to be determined):
    April 26th - Getting Started with Technology / Learn 3 Tools (Awareness & Exploration Levels)
    April 29th - Learn about Wikis / Multimedia Projects (Exploration & Infusion Levels)
    May 7th - Advanced Wiki-ing / Learn 3 Tools (Integration & Expansion Levels)
    May 10th - Discover more about Discovery Streaming (All Levels) PM Only
    Some numbers from the survey are: 28% of respondents identified with the Awareness level, 33% identified with the Exploration level and 21% identified with the Infusion level. The goal is to move from one level to the next. These workshops are the perfect way to start the climb! Register at:http://innovativeteaching.swsd.wikispaces.net/Registration . Substitute coverage will be arranged by Michelle Krill. There is still time to complete the Innovative Teaching Assessment here.

    Advanced Search - Use a variety of search tools to quickly locate video segments, images, encyclopedia articles, audio files, quizzes, events, lesson plans, animations, clip art, and more.
    Streaming vs. Downloading - You can view a video segment “live” or stream it “real-time” by clicking on the Play button. The quality of the video streaming experience will depend on many factors including the speed of your Internet connection and the number of people at your school who are online at the time you choose to stream video content. When you download a video segment, you save a copy of the file on your computer or network for future access.
    My Content - This feature allows you to collect, organize, share and retrieve DE streaming media resources, assignments, quizzes and writing prompts from any service in one convenient place.

    Integration Strategies
    Embedding Videos
    When you embed a downloaded file, you insert it right into your document much as you would a picture or clip art file. Embedding makes use of the multimedia capabilities in software such as PowerPoint, AppleWorks, and Keynote and allows teachers to create presentations that do not rely on separate media players. Embedding is an effective way to add video content to existing presentations, create interactive learning projects with menus and text prompts, or develop slide shows in which video files play automatically.
