When you take the time to look around we have some amazing things going on in our District.  If you haven't yet explored the Student Community Beta version to listen to student created podcasts, or read original student writing, please take a minute to do so.  The students will also love to have comments made on their projects.  There is everything from lesson reviews to 2nd grade story reading being created in podcasts.
Students are taking the time to read each other's work and listen to what their peers have to say.  All this helps to build fluency, comprehension, self-confidence, and listening skills.  Just what we want to see.

These tools integrate really nicely for web publishing, and, more importantly, would help you build and maintain really cool personal web sites on our servers. iWeb has some nice templates, which allow you to easily add video, music, pictures, podcasts, blogs, etc. from all the other i-apps in a extraordinarily easy to use interface. Check it out at
