CHECK THIS OUT

United Learning has a really cool service. It provides video on demand to your desktop.

The state of South Carolina has bought a 3 year subscription for all schools in the state. The catch is, the teachers have to actually use it. If they don't make use of it, SC may not fund it anymore. So, if you work in SC, find out about it, and actually use it on a regular basis (PLEASE!)

I've already shown some of the videos in my science classes. They range from relatively short (15-20 minutes) to around an hour. They have been decent quality, aligned to the state standards, and have associated teacher's guides.

Think about it. As teachers, we're always trying to find good, visually-oriented instructional resources. We know today's kids are visual, not text-oriented. And the school or local library can't possibly stock a wide enough range of videos to suit us.

Enter the video on demand service. For a set fee, you can have a searchable index of classroom-ready videos. With a projection screen or an digital-to-analog converter for your TV, you can provide virtually unlimited access to teachers.

We have something that sounds similar - http://www.digitalcurriculum.com/ - that I just today learned we have access to. It has video clips anywhere from a few minutes long to a few that were nearly 30 minutes. This is exactly what we have been saying we need! Some topics are just really hard to explain on a 2-dimensional whiteboard or overhead, and students need to see a 3-D rendering that is beyond my artistic abilities, but represented very well by these clips. But they aren't buried in the middle of a 30 minute VHS tape that degrades year after year.

Finally, I feel like we are entering the 1990s. ;)

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.

I was skeptical of the claim to be able to make $1,000 in 48 hours, but then I just finished reading the book. I think that Desperate for Money just may live up to its claim. I am anxious to try the idea about the restaurant menus. Has anyone here read and tried any of the ideas?

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
Dexter, Chicago

Finally! A new pill that really works!

Saw your blog about card debit pal pay - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

viagra said...

The anti-impotency treatment you are going to adopt just after being identified with erectile dysfunction is not likely to yield any fruitful result if you do not abide by the precautionary instructions recommended by the physician. For instance, after procuring viagra online if you administer cheap viagra without providing the necessary details to the doctor with regard to your medical history then there are chances that viagra intake might prove disastrous to you. Most particularly, if you are taking nitrate based medicine such as nitroglycerin patches to treat a specific medical condition you should inform the doctor immediately so that he doesn’t suggest you to buy viagra. The usage of Viagra by any person using nitrate-based medicines can trigger off health disaster and as such you can definitely avoid the imminent harm by explaining your medical history to the doctor and avoiding to buy viagra online if the drug is not meant for you.
