NECC Presentation: Implementing the Math Forum's Problems of the Week in Trenton, New Jersey


Gail Robinson and Annie Fetter represented the Trenton MATRIX grant at the 2007 National Educational Computing Conference (NECC), held this year in Atlanta, Georgia, June 24 - 27.

While at the conference, they learned about the following two opportunities for teachers to explore and share ideas.

Apple Learning Interchange


The Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) is a social network for educators. Find a wealth of content ranging from simple lesson ideas to in-depth curriculum units for K-12 educators, as well as a new channel for Higher Education faculty showcasing campus projects, research and more.

Users are encouraged to create a free account to gain access to the full environment, which offers opportunities for publishing and collaboration with movies, images, and sounds.

Yahoo! Teachers


Yahoo! invites teachers to sign up now to be notified when their new site is released. View the "Sneak Peek" online video to hear and see their plans which include sharing and facilitated construction of lesson plans with an easy method to include references to state standards.

Join one of the free 2007 Summer Workshops to learn how to get the most from the new Yahoo! Teachers site:
