PETE&C sharing

Sandy shared two SMART Board sessions.
Aly shared about putting screen capture on all machines so teachers and students can use them when needed. For teachers, they can provide feedback on papers via a screencast rather than writing on the margins of a paper. Students can explain how their information supports their thesis, etc.
-Built in screen capture for MAC (in quicktime)
-Windows Live also has screen recording.
Discusses blogging successes in Aly and Michelle's districts (Wordpress). Feedback is the key - from others.
