I read about the Youth Voices project at the Digital Is site, and I think it sounds very interesting, like something I would use with my 9th and 11th grade English classes here in Windsor, CO. So, I visited the site and signed up, but it seems like I do not have access to everything. I can only see three of the guides that you use, and the directions for most of the activities seem limited. I enjoyed the free-writing article by Peter Elbow, and I also like the 10 questions activity. I am wondering if there is a description of how teachers use this site somewhere.
Thanks, Tommy Buteau

Jen Wagner and Mark Samberg share how to use Google Spreadsheet in the classroom. As a result, Nags Head Elementary School is now gathering their lunch count using a Google Form - which dumps the results into a great spreadsheet.
So sorry it has taken me so long to post this audio. Real life keeps getting in the way.
This show came to be as a result of me wanting to automate our lunch count proceedure. I wanted to know the best way to use Google Spreadsheet/Forms to make it happen. Once again, Jen Wagner came to the rescue along with Mark Samberg and his great ideas.
