School Library Journal Article

Well the article is out and I thank Kelly for a fine job! The more the word gets out, the greater the potential of a rich educational experience!Here is the link:
Check it out! . If you scroll down
a bit to the current issue on the left hand side, you can see the cover, and
the article is here:

Back in Suffern, we have a few new projects brewing! Our digital music teacher (check him out, he is a monster!
is planning on bringing in his digital music classes to create music videos with the songs they have composed! We are going to need a lot of help learning the ins and outs of the movie making tools and have even considered taking the leap to Machinima. Any volunteers assistance would be greatly appreciated! (Time to give Robbie Dingo a holler I think LOL)

We also have a Family and Consumer Science class starting their entrepreneur project where they will enter Ramapo Islands, be given a stipend and set loose! Banking terminals are in the works and we are eager to see how the students attack the real world problem!

There is also a class coming in who have finsihed a unit on Inventions of the 20th Century. They will be building a museum of the same name and creating exhibits of the inventions they researched, complete with notecard explanations. As an extension
of the project, as a group they will invent something new in SL and will then have the rights to sell it. We are proud to say the Ryl Redgrave (Lyr Lobo on Main Grid)
will be problem solving with the class and with her assistance I can't wait to see what they come up with!
