Kelly Tenkely graduated from Colorado Christian University with a Liberal Arts degree in Elementary Education. She started teaching in 2003 as a second grade teacher in a public school. In 2004 she made the switch to private school and took the only available opening as the technology teacher. Educational technology has since become her passion. She started a web site for her classroom and soon discovered that other teachers were using the site to aid technology in their classrooms.

Kelly also trains teaching staff on integrating and implementing technology into the classroom. Training teachers on the use of technology in the classroom led to her blog, ilearntechnology.com, where she blogs daily about integrating technology into the classroom simply and effectively. When she is not blogging, searching for and playing with new technology, or on teaching.monster.com Kelly enjoys scrapbooking, cooking, and spending time with her husband and dog (Aya).

Picture Book MakerMore articles from this author:

What it is: Picture Book Maker is a fun little online picture book creator (bet you couldn’t have guessed that from the name!). What makes this picture book creator unique is the great illustration elements that students can use in their story. The illustrations look hand drawn with crayon and can be adjusted to fit the story. Each picture has actions, these are multiple poses of the same character. Even the text looks like it is hand written. All of the characters for the story are animals (this site comes from London zoos). There are also several backdrops and props for students to include in their story. When the book has been completed, it can be saved to the gallery, sent to a friend via email, or printed out.

How to integrate Picture Book Maker into the classroom: Picture Book Maker is a fun way for students to publish stories online. I love how the stories look like they were created by children. Students can pick animals to write a story about, the penguin could be used as a spin off of Mr. Popper’s Penguins. After they are finished writing their story, it can be printed out or sent in an email to parents. Picture Book Maker would be a good platform to create a story as a class using a projector or interactive whiteboard.

Tips: Be sure to visit the gallery of stories to see other student’s creations.

Listing to Johnny Cash on this radio program. .

Tonight we attended a fundraiser for the Fender (Guitar) Museum, in Corona, CA which has music classes for children.
It was a Johnny Cash event, celebrating the 70th Birthday of Johnny Cash, who died to young.
One thing I learned at that event is that there is a Johnny Cash radio program.
I have not yet checked it out, but was told the website for the program is
Tday's event also included a film made of Johnny's life, and I won a copy because I raised my hand to ask the maker of the film a question

  • Avatar Jessica What is an easy online grade book for middle school teachers?
    Aug 12, 2012 by Jessica | Posted in Teaching

    I am teaching multiple grade levels 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and wanted to use a web based grading book that allows you to print up reports for each student. Thanks in advance!!

    • I'm sure it's not the most powerful grading book, but I have been using Edmodo (edmodo.com) for a little over a year.

      Essentially, it's a secure social network designed for classrooms. You can post assign …
      "What's my grade?"
      "Have you checked Edmodo?"
      "Well... check."

      It even has a decent smartphone app on the Android/Apple market.
