I have many favorite things about this program. It is hard to choose just one. I like the way it was laid out. The activities were well explained. I also like the comments from others!
This program has served to remind me that life is a journey where we need to learn everyday. Never stop learning! There is so much out there and we need to keep up with it in order to be able to serve our students and prepare them for the world they will face!
There were some things that surprised me such as the amount of information out there and how easy it is to get it if you take the time. As for changing something in the program, I don't know what I would change. There is plenty of opportunity to get help if you need it through collaboration and comments, and there is so ample time to get these done. It just takes a little time and curiosity from the learner. The resources are there, just use them!
If I could describe my learning in one word it would be OVERWHELMING! There is so much to know and so little time! I hope there is not a test on all the information! I would fail!

I plan to check out the other web sites for videos as they are invaluable in helping students comprehend information. I have used tons of videos from Discovery Education (formerly United Streaming) especially in the area of Science. I have also found some good videos in math and US History. I plan to use these videos in conjunction with the Activboard. I know they will go a long way in helping my students become more successful.

I also checked out some of the comic sites and the music sites out of curiosity. They were easy to navigate and found some things I was interested in.
Once again, there is so much on this site that it will take a while to get to all of this. However, I plan to use this in the class and bookmark it. I also plan to share this with others as a wonderful tool for so many other things!
