Starting my WBT adventure during Summer School, Jump Start was awesome. I used Class-Yes and it was a total success. The classes responded very well, and it was great to just say "class" and then have their complete attention. I used the scoreboard a little, but realized I will have to work harder when school starts to remember to give smileys and frownies more often.
I just finished watching the archived Web cast "State Test Prep", and I was blown away. Such great information on how to practice and prepare for those dreaded State Tests. I recommend this web cast to any teacher that has to give tests. The Super Improver's Wall was so tied in with this practice of the state tests, that I am going to start my SIW right away. I had been thinking of waiting awhile because trying everything at once can be overwhelming. I can't wait to see my students' improvement on the the state tests this year.
Power on with WBT!
