Today in the classrooms of the Bloomfield Hills Schools, technology is the way of doing everything. If you are younger than 30 that goes without saying. If you are older than 50 you may find what follows a revelation.
In explaining what's new we will also explain what once was. Like flannel boards,spirit duplicators, Mr. Wizard, and Winky Dink.
We start with Multi Media. What's that ? It is using many creative way of getting your attention and developing an interest. That's why movies have web sights and some government agencies have blogs.
What you see above right is what happens when you inadvertently hit the pause button while reviewing a tape of the Principal's Instructional Show Case which is part of every Bloomfield Hills School Board meeting. The student in the center is speaking at podium. The green tint and word "I am not plastic" come from an refillable water bottle she designed in a campaign to stamp out plastic water bottles. That image is is superimosed on the campaign's web site. In the lower left is a bit of a poster from the movie Tapped which the student screened as fund raiser. Her presentation and that of other students will be discussed in our neext post titled Multi Media in the Classroom of Model High School. Bloomfield Hills School Series Part 1
