Thanks to everyone who emailed me, and Twittered me, and left their messages in this blog, and to all who are sharing my excitement!
I was INSPIRED to use the free trial of the ActivSoftware Inspire today to my students, everyone was eager to go up the Activboard and then save their works. We finally used the Activotes this morning too and enjoyed it tremendously! Because it was a hit, we invited a whole class of regular students in my resource classroom to join us and also try the Activote themselves. Their teacher and I decided that we are going to do this regularly and we are going to call it "Technology Thursday" students working together with his class in an inclusion setting!
Was I sleepy or just plain careless when I submitted my entry last Friday? Fortunately, I did not omit a letter in typing my email address when I submitted my application for my entry, I received a message from Promethean Americas tonight:
