  2. I think this is wild. Love that these kids are getting into this, learning and meeting others from all over. What a great experience that lasts a lifetime…

  4. I think this is amazing. I just watched the video from youtube and I think you are doing a wonderful job. This is something that the children will never forget. Thank you for the inspiration that I hope to be able to use in my own class.

  8. Your dedication to your students and knowledge of how to use technology so well in a primary classroom is commendable! How many years have you been teaching? How did you learn it all?

  10. Thank you all for your kind words. I think it is important for students to use technology as a part of their school experience, and not “power down” when they come into the classroom.
    Lisa, I have been teaching about 17 years. I have learned a bit at a time, starting with a web page (not this one), then a blog and so on. There are so many wonderful sites for children to use in their learning. I want my students to have easy access to these sites, so I created these pages.

  18. I am writing a unit on Professional Development of elementary Teachers through ICTs. I am using Blog as one of the tools for professional development of teachers. I wish to give one example of a blog. When I visited your blog (as one of the top 20 blogs), it was an amazing experience. I just wish to take a snapshot of your blog and use it as a pic in the unit. This will be published by the Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi. I need your permission to use this snap shot.

  20. Ms. Cassidy and Class,

    I work as a resource teacher and technology specialist in Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Florida. I came upon your class and the amazing things you are accomplishing on YouTube and was very impressed. I am preparing a presentation on 21st Century Learners for administrators and teachers in my district and would like permission to use parts of your video for my training. You are all the most wonderful examples of Digital Learners I have come across.

    Ms. Cassidy my compliments to you for the work you are doing to prepare these students for the future and hopefully your work will inspire many others to take the leap of faith and begin to implement the tools our children will need to be successful in the 21st century and beyond.

    Sincerely,
    Margaret Yates

  22. Your website is AMAZING!!! Our corporation hasn’t quite reached the true potential when it comes to websites so, it’s pretty much up to the teachers. I can’t sleep and am blown away by all the ideas you have put in my noodle! Ha-ha.. fantastic work. Thanks again. :)

  24. Oh my goodness! My head is spinning with all that can be done here! I have had a class website using Shutterfly for the past two years because it was easy and I enjoyed having all their pictures categorized for each event through the year for parents to view and comment on and download or make a book, etc. BUT – this year I am back to just first grade and I want to learn to do this – but a little overwhelmed – yet excited. There are so many choices out there now -it’s like the latest and greatest keeps changing you know? I applaud you for your wonderful work and it has inspired me to do much more!

  26. Hi!
    I am a teacher in Calgary Alberta Canada. In the past I have had my own websites dedicated to grades 3 and 4. But this year I am teaching grade one for the first time. I very much enjoy some of the links you have used and wonder if you would mind if I use some of them within my own site?

  32. I just came across your YouTube video on the use of technology (iPads) in your classroom and I think it is fabulous. I love the way you use your blog as a video portfolio to showcase student work. I am a second grade teacher who would like to start a blog and use it in a way that is similar to yours. Any suggestions you may have would be helpful. What blog site to use, possible funding for class iPads etc. Thank you in advance and good luck this coming school year.
