There are so many things I can take away from this program and incorporate into my classroom, wiki for one example. I can not wait to use my wiki to communicate with the parents in my classroom. I really can not think of anything that you could do differently to improve this program. Everything is so self explanatory with all the helpful links posted for clarification, and different examples and explanations. I would definetely participate in another discovery program like this one, I am hoping there is another one. I love being able to work at my own pace.
Library2Play was such a great learning experience, I have learned so many different things and different tools to use in my classroom to enhance my teaching. ( I also love getting comments on my blog, and really enjoy commenting on others--I can see the importance of it!)
Photostory was so easy to use. I could have played with it for hours editing each page. I can definetley use this in my classroom-photostories of our field trips and special events. My students would love it. Then I could post it on my wiki page...I think, for the parents to see.

I created a rollyo for dinosaurs. It was very easy to do and I can definetley see what a great use it would be. The video that BGoodner did was an awesome explanation of how to use rollyo. What a great tool!

I regularly try to comment on a couple of blogs that I keep up with. The two blogs I follow are of friends from church. One of the ladies has/is going through cancer and she keeps us updated on her blog to her progress. The other blog belongs to a friend who does public speaking and her blogs are just so real to life, and seem to minister to me quite often. I also like to keep up with my principals blog.
I liked using Library Thing. I made a list of the recent books I have read, and also joined a couple of groups. I could definetely see where this site is beneficial for avid readers. There are so many different kinds of groups and members. If you are trying to find a good book to read this is a great site. It gives you recommendations and reviews. Great tool!!

I found downloading the image very simple and easy to do. I chose a picture of a dinosaur egg. Our last science unit that we teach is Dinosaurs. It always amazes me how much 5 year olds know about dinosaurs. They teach me something every year. It also baffles my mind how they always know the names of the dinosaurs and can pronounce the name better than me. Children are a wonder!
