Welcome Back to School!

I am very excited about this year’s adventures in computers. This summer, I attended the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) in Atlanta, Georgia where I learned about blogs, wikis, Web 2.0, Furl, tags, podcasting, edubloggers, social networking, facebook, RRS feed, elluminate, vodcasting, meebo, Ning, GoogleDocs, Google Earth, and more. The conference was attended by 18,000 individuals interested in making technology a priority.

We are now entering Web 2.0 which means we are using the Internet not only to read but to write and publish.

This year your child will be involved in working on blogs and wikis. Blogs are used to communicate thoughts, ideas, and opinions. In addition, people reading various blogs can post comments. Please visit this site frequently for information throughout the school year.

In addition, check out my wiki at http://paulpam2.wikispaces.com.

During the school year, we will be involved in various assemblies and field trips. Our open house is scheduled for September 5th, 2007. Officer King is our D.A.R.E. instructor again this year. He will start D.A.R.E. sometime in September.
