We unfortunateoy had an issue with our live webinar last week in hangouts on air. We did record a short video for you if you are still interested in it though! You can find it at https://youtu.be/ljE3K5agRY4

Birdville 12 Days of Innovation

If you haven't signed up yet for the 12 days of Innovation from Birdville ISD, you should really consider joining! Sign up here and they will send you a video each day (about an hour long) with a featured guest speaker. They have some great ideas, and you can watch it any time. You can play it in the background as you are grading or doing your holiday baking! Here's a list of presenters for you to check out.

Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit

There is a huge digital summit (FREE) that runs December 12-14. The Birdville Summit was patterned after this one- very similar. You sign up and they send you a video a day that you can watch at your leisure. They also will ask you to do something each day using social media. Sign up here! Oh, and did I mention there are PRIZES for participation in the activities they have set up???

The Twelve Days of Twitter Challenge- Going Strong!

It's not over! Join us as Frisco ISD joins in the Twelve Days of Twitter Challenge! Each day you will tweet (we give you the topic- see below) and you hashtag #12DaysTwitter and #ourFISDstory (and #LTHSlearns if you can!)

Want a printable version of the calendar? FInd one here.

Bringing Skype into the Classroom

I learned about a site this week called Skype in the Classroom. They have guest speakers that can visit you via Skype, collaborations, virtual field trips, and mystery skype sessions. I heard about this one through the Birdville 12 days of Innovation Summit. Check out the video below for more about Skype!
