Developers Head To Adobe MAX 2007
Several of us developers here at EL (Chris, Paul, and I) will be heading out to Adobe MAX 2007 in Chicago. It starts up this weekend and runs through Wednesday. The conference will let us learn about a lot of the new technologies that are out there, and improve our skills with the current technologies. Many of the things we take away from the conference will allow us to make further improvements and enhancements to our EL site.
Mmm...pizza in Chicago :)

Elementary Gizmos -- Not just for elementary students
After a long effort, the development team at EL is proud to announce the launch of our new line of elementary Gizmos. Twenty-five new Gizmos are available now.
These Gizmos were redesigned from the ground up, featuring vibrant colors and large, easy-to-use controls. Curriculum materials include worksheets (available in Word for easy customizing), answer keys, vocabulary sheets, and helpful teacher guides. Keep in mind that while these materials were designed with the elementary student in mind, they are completely appropriate for older students with a little modification.
We had some fun along the way. Lift an oinking pig or gobbling turkey in the Lever Gizmo, watch a gigantic pitcher get knocked down by his own throw in the Gravity Pitch Gizmo, and hear a cuckoo tolling the hour in the Pendulum Clock Gizmo. In February our offices in Charlottesville were filled with turnip, tomato, and green bean seedlings as we created the Growing Plants Gizmo.
So check out the new Gizmos, and enjoy!
