2012 UK Google Teacher Academy

I was introduced to a new video challenge last month and full heartily accepted the challenge and entered the 2012 Google Teacher Academy in the UK. This event will take place in London, England UK on April 4, 2012. The task at hand was to complete the online application and produce and submit an original one minute video on EITHER of the following topics: "Motivation and Learning" OR "Classroom Innovation." and to be as creative as you like. Love the open endlessness of this challenge!

This video is a very important part of the application. The task is designed to demonstrate your technical ability, your resourcefulness, your commitment, and your unique personality and interests. I chose a creative element of using the video creation tool of One True Media, an edgy urban sound track and a multimedia look and feel of London, England. My message was posed to infuse the message of "Classroom Innovation." I personally feel very good about the final production.  It provided me an opportunity to be highly creative, feel the motivational edge of competition, and meet the deadline with two weeks of lead time

Here is the final video production- please let me know how I did.  Feel free to share a comment or suggestion with me through a comment at the bottom of this post- much appreciated.

Greetings Educational Leaders,

I am providing you a flip ebook below of "2012 Educator and Youth Grant Opportunities" for my most prized school districts and educational associates I have worked with this past year. This, is once again my special give back to all of you, and to say thank you for partnering and/or working with my consulting company once again.  It has been three years at the end of this month since I have started my Innovative Educator Consulting corporation, and it is because of all of you that have contributed to our team's success.  By this summer, I will have 12 part-time Master educator consultants who will be working for my company over the summer and two full-time employees.  These dynamic individuals are the most prized educators and tech integration trainers in the tri-state area.
