I like this post. We talk about all we'd like to do in our districts...if we only had the money. If the funding comes from the community, doesn't it make sense to show the community what technology means to our students?

I judge free online stuff by my mom's reactions to the end-product as well as how difficult it is for her to create it. She has really enjoyed ScrapBlog and Animoto. Every grandma loves to show off pictures...

What a great-- and simple-- idea! (The best ideas often are.) I think what you're doing makes a lot of sense: if parents better "get" what their kids are "into," as well as see the value of technology in their own lives, they'll probably be more likely to support tech initiatives in the school. Not to mention the possibility of new conversations opening up between parents and kids.

We have been talking about starting a class for parents and others in our community on computer/internet basics. Your blog has given me a some great ideas to make the class both meaningful and fun. Thanks for sharing.
