Technology in the Classroom: Using ScreenChomp to Learn Phonics (admin posted on November 30th, 2012 )
Meet Julie Monette. She is a curriculum coach at Discovery Elementary School in Williamston, Michigan. She works primarily with kindergarteners and first graders, helping them make connections between sounds, letters, and words. Children learn in a variety of ways — visually, audibly, and tactically. Using Screenchomp, a free iPad app, Julie has the students listen to a word, break apart the word into sounds, and then write the word on screen. With Screenchomp, students can review their work and teachers like Julie can replay the process students went through during learning.

The Nazis discovered that Antarctica was none other than flash frozen Atlantis after they consulted with Tibetan esoteric buddhists. From their Neuschwabenland Base 211, they retro-engineered the rune covered vimanas and created their own Nazi Bell, Haunebu, Vril, Flugelrads, Silver Bugs, etc. that eventually lead to 4th Reich modern vimanas like the TR-3B Astra of today. After the USA took over the program during Operation Highjump and moving all the Nazi occultists/scientists/war criminals to America via Operation Paperclip, they now work on these evil projects in DUMBs like Area 51 and S-4 along with the returned Grigori/Watchers/Igigi pretending to be “grey aliens”. media.photobucket.com www.youtube.com

In 2000, the American Museum of Natural History launched OLogy, an innovative website for kids based on the premise that “everyone wants to know something.” Designed as a place for children to ask questions, get answers, and meet real “OLogists,” the award-winning site features hands-on activities, articles, games, and OLogy “cards” that kids can collect and use in online projects. OLogy invites children to explore the Museum’s rich and diverse content, including its scientific research and collections. In the video below, the team behind OLogy looks back over the last 10 years. OLogy is a project of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Museum’s Department of Education.
