  1. This is a great opporunity. Mark your calendars for two others.

    Next Tuesday is CAST’s Technology Tools of the Trade 2. We may have one of the presentations on Bb uses and tricks. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in. The alternatives would be Google Docs or Prezi. The other topics are Animoto, Glogster and Course content in the cloud. This fast-paced sequel to TToT 1 will have the same “speed dating” format.

    Also, Friday Dec. 2 will be CAST cookies and grading. We’ll open up 1046 for anyone who wants to hang out, eat cookies, drink coffee (or some other warm beverage),grade, write exams, chat, wrap gifts for your favorite out-going CAST coordinator, etc.
