Here's a little instructional video that will take you step by step through uploading your lesson plans to Dropbox and posting a link to them on your School World Teacher Site. There are many advantages to this system: no limit to the size of the word document (so upload your entire year if you want); links never change when you upload revised lesson plan files with the same title (so make a fix in MS Word, upload the revised, and never change the link in School World again!); oh yes....lots less red!
Videolicious is a great site and App for making video creation easy. Mrs. Walker and her students had great fun using Videolicious as a tool for conducting interviews. Students played the role of a Lampasas Dispatch Record reporter, and interviewed each other about their 7th grade experiences.
"We had been studying various media with an emphasis on newspapers and news writing. Julie talked about the changes facing print media and emphasized that reporters will still be needed in the digital age. In this assignment the students had the opportunity to be a reporter and interview one another for a brief video. They had not had an opportunity before the class to work on the assignment and had to come up with questions to ask as well as take photos and record the responses. It was not for a grade. Julie and I walked around and viewed the results. The students really enjoyed the assignment."

I'm really too old to use the word "über," but from younger people, I gather it means "above and beyond" or "super," and this word choice seems appropriate. Look at this degree of organization on a Friday morning!
In the image above, youll note she has posted the day's objective, the day's required supplies, the day's agenda, and visual cues. She even included a proactive "Say thanks to Mr. Folks for helping with the clickers!"
While this degree of organization is impressive on a Friday, I plan to come back Monday morning to really put her organizational skills to the test!
