As I type this, I have 6 days, 22 minutes, and 14 seconds until my students and I leave for Australia on our Discovery Education Student Adventure (http://www.discoverystudentadventures.com/). Needless to say, we are all VERY excited!!
We may be trekking through rainforests, sleeping under the stars in the outback and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, but we will always have our technology by our sides! Included in our gear: computers, iTouches, MP3 players, digital cameras, HD video cameras, cell phones, GPS units, converters, and of course...LOTS of cords and batteries.
All of this equipment will help us keep in touch will all of you...via Blogger, Twitter, YouTube, and Picassa. Ultimately, you should be able to access all of these by visiting our main blog at: http://dsaaustralia.blogspot.com/
Now, you DON'T have to have a Twitter account to follow us. All you have to do is visit my URL: http://twitter.com/JJensenDSA This will allow you to see all of my Tweets. You can then check out what my students, along with the other teachers and students, have to say by simply clicking on the "following" link to the right.
So bookmark the blog and Twitter account and follow us on this amazing journey. We look forward to hearing from you all while on our trip. Now remember...there is a BIG time difference between here and Australia. All you have to do is subtract 8 hours and add one day. So if it's 8:00PM Monday in Colorado, it's 12:00PM Tuesday in on the East Coast of Australia.
