Our Middle School has two pretty neat events coming up at Thursday and Friday of this week:
#1-The 6th grade class will be 'meeting' with Wes Fryer and a few other middle schools in the "Protecht" Digital Citizenship project to do a live via ustream broadcast to chat about the concept and notion of digital citizenship. This will take place in Mellowes Hall from 1:00CST -1:45 CST GMT 6 on Thursday. Wesley has already responded to a few of our questions via the following blog posts:
#2-A handful of students from USM along with three middle schools in New Hampshire will be chatting live with Paul Goodyear, USS Oklahoma survivor (and Michigan native!) live starting at 12:15 CST. More on our conversation with Paul at: http://mstechnology.wikispaces.com/Paul+Goodyear. This conversation is also being streamed live and there is a chat room if you'd like to participate and ask Paul questions. It truly is an honor to be able to speak with Paul about his life experiences.
