I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
It's just a learning process. I do a lot of video and I taught myself all I know. Just give it a try! Yes, the anonymity of the reviews is great. They know who they are and their friends know. It's been fun for them!
No, Glogster is only the host for the videos. You can see my pages starting here:
Follow the links to my book reviews. I do the animation using a program called Crazy Talk, a little Photoshop, and I edit with Sony Vegas Video. Crazy Talk will allow you to do the basic animation. Some of the other effects I do in my editing program.
Hope this helps.
