Today author Amy Sklansky put on a chef’s hat & coat and “cooked” a book – three times for students at New Hope Elementary in Pennsylvania!
Into her large cooking pot went inspiration, rough drafts, revisions, pencil sketches, and more as she explained how an author’s idea becomes a published book. Amy used her fifth book, The Duck Who Played the Kazoo, as her primary example during this interactive videoconference.
This 45 minute videoconference is for students in grades 1st through 3rd. The participants interact with an author and develop an appreciation for both the creative writing and the publishing process during this interactive program.
Next week at the 2011 Midwest Education Technology Conference, you’ll have a chance to see two New Links to New Learning authors present. Barri Bumgarner (top, left) and Amy Sklansky (top, right) will share their expertise in topics that include digital storytelling and interactive H323 videoconferencing. Barri presents Wednesday morning, Amy presentsWednesday afternoon. Looking forward to seeing them!
