I'm Teaching a Class this Summer

I'm teaching a 2-credit graduate course at Montana State University this summer.  It is part of the Masters of Science in Science Education program.  I have set up my own Moodle server and I am going to be running it like my high school classroom.  Technologies include, but are not limited to, the following: Moodle, screencasting software, iPads, Livescribe pens, graphics tablets, Google docs, Smartboards, data probes, and video.  If you (or a teachers you know) might be interested in spending a week in beautiful Bozeman learning everything I know about education technology please sign up.
