Digital Wish and A-List Education Provide a 50% Matching Grant on Vocab Videos
Posted by Digital Wish Support at 02:28:05 PM Thu 06/16/2011

Manchester Center, VT- June 16th, 2011- Earlier this year, more than 1,000 educators took advantage of a special trial of Vocab Videos through Digital Wish. Now, thanks to the generous support of A-List Education, Digital Wish is offering educators a 50% matching grant on all Vocab Videos subscriptions purchased through August 15, 2011.

Vocab Videos is a revolutionary new vocabulary system from A-List Education that brings essential high school and SAT vocabulary words to life. The online platform was developed by a group of educators frustrated by the lack of high quality and affordable vocabulary resources. Their solution came in the form of hilarious short videos illustrating the meanings of crucial, frequently-tested SAT vocabulary words. Episodes feature entertaining characters and parodies of popular TV shows, making learning vocabulary words fun for students. The Vocab Videos package includes an extensive video library that reinforces learning for over 500 vocabulary words, plus quizzes, worksheets, a multimedia flashcard maker, and a teacher dashboard for monitoring individual student and class progress.

Vocab Videos takes away the stress of vocabulary preparation and engages students in the learning process with fun spins on dictionary definitions, showing students what the words mean instead of just telling them. The video content and words are appropriate for grades 9 through 12.

"We are very excited to facilitate this grant opportunity for every high school teacher in the country," said Heather Chirtea, executive director and founder of Digital Wish, "These Vocab Videos subscription grants will help thousands of students across the country learn vocabularly essential for their English classes and the SAT."

Submit an Animation Lesson Plan to Win the Software that Brought Wallace and Gromit to Life!
Posted by John Sullivan at 08:44:00 PM Thu 06/02/2011

Manchester Center, VT- June 2nd, 2011- Three educators will win a 10-pack of the software used to create Aardman Animation’s Wallace & Gromit movies, simply by submitting their animation lesson plans to Digital Wish.  Any educator who submits a claymation or animation lesson plan to Digital Wish before July 31st, 2011 will be entered to win a 10-user software license of Stop Motion Pro Action!  Three winners will be chosen.

Stop Motion Pro is the software used by Aardman Animations to produce the much-loved Wallace & Gromit films.  Great for beginners and advanced users alike, Stop Motion Pro’s intuitive user interface makes creating cross-curricular animated projects a breeze.

Students can use a video camera, digital still camera, or webcam and the Stop Motion Pro software on a Windows PC to create digital stories and animated projects by capturing one frame of their character or subject, making a small change, and then capturing another frame to build the illusion of movement. Stop Motion Pro digitally compiles the frames, and sophisticated tools make it easy to integrate eye-popping special effects into your animations.   Microphones or pre-recorded audio can be used to add sound and music, and frames can be painted on for limitless creative expression.

Different language options (English, French, German and Spanish) make Stop Motion Pro perfect for multiple language learners and ELL/ESL students. Educators working with younger learners or students on the Autism spectrum will appreciate the creative ways the program can be used as a digital storytelling device to foster emotional literacy and give a "voice" to students who would otherwise be unable or unwilling to express themselves.

“We’re very excited to see schools utilize the magic of animation to bring their stories to life with Stop Motion Pro,” said Heather Chirtea, founder and executive director of Digital Wish. “I’ve taught animation for years, and Stop  Motion Pro makes it easy for learners of all levels to turn out impressive projects."

Stop Motion Pro comes in five editions, including versions well -suited to all levels of education from elementary through post-secondary institutions. The versions include Action!, Action! Plus, Action! HD, Studio HD Commercial, and Studio HD Education.  All versions are available to educators through Digital Wish.

Four Teachers Win a Classroom Sets of Flip Cameras for Writing Innovative Lesson Plans
Posted by John Sullivan at 02:26:25 PM Thu 06/02/2011

Editor's Note: A few teachers were asking about the winners of the Flip Innovation Lesson Plan contest, so we re-posted this article.

Manchester Center, VT- June 2, 2011- Digital Wish has announced the winners of their wildly successful Video Innovation Lesson Plan sponsored by Flip Video™.  Four winning lesson plans were selected from almost 700 entries. One winner was chosen from each of the K-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade levels and awarded a classroom set of ten Flip UltraHD™ 1 hour video camcorders.  

K-2nd Grade Winner
Ashley Parker from Martin Elementary School in Flowery Branch, GA won for her lesson plan "1st Grade Shape Search."  Students use Flip video cameras to record their search for shapes in their school and compete to find the greatest amount of correctly identified shapes.

3rd- 5th Grade Winner
Debbie Matteson from Olathe Elementary School in Olathe, CO won with her lesson plan "Phantom Tell Booth."  A Flip video camera "tell booth" is set up in her classroom (a refrigerator box with a mounted Flip inside is recommended) for students to record their ideas and solutions to problems.  She notes it is especially useful for students who are reluctant to participate in group discussions.

6th- 8th Grade Winner
Michael Buist from Audrey and Robert Ryan Elementary in Chandler, AZ won with his lesson plan "30 Ways In 30 Days."  Students use Flip video cameras to create original documentaries on what they can do to change the world for the better.  Buist has posted pictures of the project on Flickr and started a blog to highlight the 30 Ways project.

9th- 12th Grade Winner
Gordon Brown from Clyde A. Erwin High School in Asheville, NC won with his lesson plan "Flip, Flop and Fly Your Way Through Adjectival Endings."  Students form groups to make videos teaching foreign language adjectival endings.  Through bloopers on film requiring remakes, students will learn quickly how adjectival endings, and the language at large, works.

All four winners will receive classroom sets of 10 Flip cameras.  Their lesson plans, as well as every lesson plan entered in the contest, will be hosted and made available to the public for use in their classrooms at www.digitalwish.org.

To qualify for the Video Innovation Lesson Plan Contest, teachers from all over the country submitted their best lesson plan ideas that utilized Flip video cameras.  Lesson plans could cover any subject area and were judged based on their utilization of Flip video cameras, degrees of innovation and originality, and level of student involvement.  The winners were announced publicly through Digital Wish's Twitter account on June 1st, 2011.

WhitePages Unveils America’s Favorite Teacher for National Teacher Day and Teacher Appreciation Week
Posted by John Sullivan at 02:59:32 PM Tue 05/03/2011

Seattle, WA – May 3, 2011 – To celebrate National Teacher Day today and this week’s Teacher Appreciation Week, WhitePages is announcing that Mrs. Campbell from Perry Elementary in Perry, Kansas has been named America’s Favorite Teacher from the WhitePages Run & Hug Contest. With 47,141 online votes, Mrs. Campbell and Brandi Turner, the former student who nominated her, will each win two all expenses paid trips to New York City to meet in person. Mrs. Campbell will also be presented with a $1,000 check for her dedication and inspiration to the students at Perry Elementary.  Launched in early April, the Run & Hug contest garnered 196,634 votes for 205 submissions.

“Mrs. Campbell truly is an amazing teacher and person,” said Brandi Turner. “As my second grade teacher, I remember her caring voice, her sucking on cough drops while reading to us, her kind words if you were worried or upset, her helpful ways in encouraging positive friendships, and most importantly, her display of the importance of receiving the most out of education as possible. I look forward to reuniting with Mrs. Campbell in NY to thank her in person.”

Mrs. Campbell taught in Perry, KS from 1984-1994 and Mrs. Turner, who graduated from Perry Lecompton in 1997, was in her first class. From 1994 to the present time, Mrs. Campbell has been teaching in Lawrence, KS, which is about 15 miles from Perry. For the past 11 years, Mrs. Campbell has been the librarian at Prairie Park Elementary.   Mrs. Campbell’s influence on Mrs. Turner inspired her to also become a teacher. Mrs. Turner taught in De Soto for five years before moving “home” to Perry in 2007, where she is now coincidentally the librarian at Perry Elementary where Mrs. Campbell was her 2nd grade teacher.

“I am so touched by the idea that Brandi nominated me for a "favorite teacher" award.  When I read the submission, it made me cry because I am so moved by her kind words and fond memories of our second grade that I too share,” said Mrs. Campbell.  “I have been contacted by many former students because of this nomination and cannot express the joy it brings me.   I have been teaching for 28 years and it is the connections I make with students that are so rewarding.  "Run and Hug" is a wonderful opportunity to show teachers that they do make a lasting difference.  I am grateful for this recognition, although I know that many teachers would be just as deserving."

As part of the contest, WhitePages offered to donate $5 to Digital Wish for every nomination and will soon mail a check for $1,025. Digital Wish is a non-profit with a unique mission to modernize K-12 classrooms and prepare students for tomorrow's workforce by creating equity in school systems so that each child has equal access to technology.

Below is the Top 10 List of Nominees for America’s Favorite Teacher contest and their stories:

  1. Mrs. Campbell, Perry Elementary, Perry, KS
  2. Ms. Hudacek, Lambuth University, Jackson, TN
  3. Ms. Gyory, A. G. Richardson Elementary, Culpeper, VA
  4. Ms. Fletcher, Homecroft Elementary, Indianapolis, IN
  5. Ms. Latessa, Veazie Street Elementary School, Providence, RI
  6. Ms. Brumbaugh, Tussey Mountain School, Saxton, PA

  8. Mr. Kleefisch, Rockford High School, Rockford, MI
  9. Mr. Cytryn, Manzanita Elementary, West Covina, CA
  10. Ms. Stegimen, Slonaker Elementary, San Jose, CA


“While everyone may have differing opinions surrounding the debate to reform public schools, we can all agree that teachers play an incredibly important role in our lives. Good teachers are amazing people and we’re thrilled that the Run and Hug contest gave us an opportunity to showcase the best of the best teachers across America, ” said Alex Algard, CEO and founder of WhitePages. “Since we’re in the business of connecting people, we’re excited about reuniting Mrs. Campbell with her former student, Brandi Turner.”

Manchester Center, VT- April 7, 2011- Digital Wish will contribute $100 towards each ELMO product purchased for the classroom at www.digitalwish.org. Schools and classroom supporters alike can now stretch their funding dollars further to make their favorite educator’s technology wishes come true.  The TT-02RX document camera is available as a stand alone item, or included in a choice of two bundles.

“The ELMO document camera has been one of the most requested classroom tools on Digital Wish,” said Heather Chirtea, Executive Director and Founder of Digital Wish, “We’re ecstatic that we can provide a $100 matching grant program on top of an already low price in these tough economic times.”

Two bundles and the stand alone document camera will each qualify for the $100 matching grant program.  One bundle brings together the powerful, but portable CRP-221 projector along with the document camera.  The other bundle includes the document camera and the award winning CRA-1 tablet, which allows the teacher to wirelessly control the document camera from up to 50 feet away.  This tablet was a winner in the 28th Annual  “Awards of Excellence” by Tech & Learning magazine.

The ELMO TT-02RX is the most popular document camera in America.  It boasts over 40X total zoom with auto or manual focus, which is perfect for zooming-in on small text or complex math problems.  The large display area can capture documents and objects as big as 11” x 17”.  An internal 1.3 megapixel chip allows smooth capture of moving objects at a steady 30 frames-per-second motion clip.  In addition, the document camera can be controlled from up to 23 feet away with the remote control which is included in the box.  With both SD and USB ports, snapshots of student work or lessons can be easily captured and exported to another device. The Image Mate software comes with each purchase and allows the user to annotate and mark up the projected materials from their computer.

“We help teachers at Digital Wish,” said Chirtea, “By making the ELMO Teacher’s Tool document camera available with an additional matching grant, we hope educators around the country will see their ultimate wish come true either from district technology funding or engaged community supporters.”

Make your classroom lessons an event with the ELMO Teacher’s Tool document camera.  Teachers can add ELMO products to their wishlist and supporters can grant their wishes at www.digitalwish.org
