Looking for Lessons With Technology
We have a very special contest going on through the end of February to encourage you to submit technology-integrated lessons to our Technology In the Classrooms of Kentucky database. I have attached a file containing some guidelines for submitting to the TICK database. Once you submit a resource, it is reviewed by some of the KATE staff to see if it meets all of our guidelines for high quality lessons. As your submissions are reviewed and accepted they will be posted in the database and you will be e-mailed regarding the acceptance. Please allow several weeks for your submissions to be reviewed. Visit the TICK web site to learn more about the contest: http://kate.murraystate.edu/tick/.

Every teacher who submits 15 published resources will win their choice of
An IPOD Touch or a CPS Wireless Chalkboard
Prize Period runs December 10, 2010 to February 28, 2011
Welcome to the Technology in Classrooms of Kentucky (TICK) collaborative where teachers can share instructional technology resources. Technology in Classrooms of Kentucky, or TICK, is currently a repository of over 3500 learning objects (including units, lessons, files, web sites, etc.). These resources have been aligned (by professional KATE staff and a strong partnership of Kentucky teachers as well as Technology Integration Specialists) to Kentucky curriculum documents including core content and the Technology Big Ideas from the Program of Studies.
TICK provides a single-point of access for resources specifically applicable to Kentucky educators. For example, a Google search on a topic such as fractions returns over 11 million hits, while a TICK search will only return a list with applicable instructional resources. Additional features have been added to earlier versions of TICK to allow Kentucky educators to not only acquire resources, but to also electronically share high-quality learning resources among all Kentucky education professionals.
TICK resources ALL address Kentucky curriculum, include embedded technology, and are searchable. At KATE the clock is TICKing, because it’s time for Kentucky’s educators to have the ability to work together to provide the best learning tools educators have available for all of Kentucky’s students. This innovative tool to incorporate 21st Century technology skills into instruction and learning is completely free and collaboration in Kentucky is “TICKing!” To become an active participant in the Kentucky TICK collaboration, visit the KATE website and click on the TICK logo. Search for resources or create a login and become an active contributor.
