Junior Quamier McCloud previews for McKeone the comic strip he developed on an iPad.

In Michele McKeone's autistic support classroom at South Philadelphia High School, students develop their communication skills and the abilities necessary for their transition to independence. McKeone, in her fourth year of teaching at Southern, uses digital media to keep the students engaged, as well as plugged in to what's relevant today. The Notebook talked with her about some of the exciting projects that students have created using digital media. 

Learn more about McKeon's classroom.

. I was actually moved enough to post a thought :-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

cara membuat blog di blogger sangatlah mudah Blog yang terbaik dan memiliki value tinggi adalah wordpress, alasan memakai wordpress untuk top level domain dikarenakan dengan membuat blog self-hosting dengan wordpress dan dengan top level domain, blog akan memiliki brand yang kuat dan lebih dipercaya oleh para pengunjung apalagi blog tersebut digunakan untuk bisnis, dan setelah blog dibuat hal yang harus anda lakukan adalah meningkatkan page view, tujuannya adalah agar blog memiliki otoritas yang baik di mesin pencari. sangat beda sekali dengan blogspot, kelebihan dan kekurangan blogspot untuk TLD sangatlah banyak jika dibanding dengan wordpress, dan sebelum anda membuat tld perhatikan dulu batas kapasitas blog yang akan anda gunakan. dan ingat jika ingin menjadi blogger setidaknya anda harus memiliki kemampuan blogger, agar anda bisa maintenance blog anda dengan lebih baik.

Ada beberapa hal yang harus kita perhatikan terhadap blog kita, yaitu tentang artikel jangan sampai di kopi paste seenaknya, ada beberapa cara yang bisa kita lakukana agar artikel kita tidak bisa dikopi paste, bisa melalui script css maupun javascrip, namun yang paling penting adalah mencegah artikel di kopipaste lewat autoblog melalui jalur rss feed, ini harus kitaperhatikan dengan menutup feed agar singkat.

hindarilah blog spam dengan menghapus link aktif pada komentar yang sering kita temukan dan moderasilah komentar sebelum diterbitkan untuk kebaikan blog yang anda gunakan.

Banyak sekali cara download video youtube bisa kita lakukan, youtube tidak menyediakan download secara otomatis, namun kita masih tetap bisa download video youtube dengan bantuan pihak ke 3, 2 cara termudah download video youtube yaitu melalui bantuan keepvid dan membubuhkan kata ss didepan url dengan tulisan youtube. selain di youtube kita juga bisa download video di facebook dengan mudah, juga kita bisa download gambar album foto difacebook dengan bantuan tool khusus.

berbicara mengenai seo ada banyak hal yang harus kita pelajari, pentingnya meta deskripsi untuk seo, dan pentingnya template responsive untuk seo, semuanya harus kita pelajari dengan sangat detail agar blog anda mudah ditemukan mesin pencari.
