If I was ever to believe there are computer gremlins, today would have been the day. Today's Virtual Monday speaker was Vinnie Vrotny and despite the tech issues we had in Elluminate he did a wonderful job. Vinnie's school is doing some incredible things with their students. You absolutely need to check out his resources on the class wiki. Also, you can catch the archive of his presentation here.
From student made digital movies about Vietnam to Google Sktechups of student created Mayan Villages, Vinnie and his colleagues are modeling for all of us the wonderful things we can do with open source tools to make students content creators rather than content consumers. Also a big thanks for Annie and Frank, two of the teachers at Vinnie's school for joining us today.
