For the next two weeks you will learn about Florida, alligators, pythons, manatees, the everglades, and anything else I find in Florida that is really interesting. You will also learn how technology can be used so we can communicate easily with voice, video, text, and photos from anywhere in the world!
We will use the website KOOWY to talk to each other and see each other LIVE...with me in Florida, and you in Woodburn, 3,289 miles away!!!
How did I know that Woodburn, Oregon and Miami, Florida are exactly 3,289 miles apart? Go to http://maps.google.com/
Click "Get Directions".
In the first box, type "Woodburn, OR"
and in the second box, type "Miami, FL"
You will see a map showing how you would drive there by car, and it tells how many miles it is.
If you love technology, stomp your feet right now!
