Annie’s Resource Attic is a labor of love by Ann Brundige. I grew up in Texas, and currently I’m fortunate to live in the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Utah. My formal education includes a Master’s degree in Microbiology and I’ve worked as a research scientist, but my insatiable curiosity has led me to an eclectic range of studies, from Egyptian hieroglyphics to astronomy. Once I saw the educational potential of multimedia, I jumped in with both feet and never looked back.
I serve as an advance scout, experimenting with features, developing techniques, and incorporating them into meaningful classroom projects. Then I bring these to teachers, trusting that they will be shared with other teachers and used to empower students.
For over twenty years now, I’ve developed unique educational materials using the technology of multimedia and had a wonderful time doing it! A long-time HyperStudio® trainer and author, I’ve recently worked extensively with IntelliTools Classroom Suite®, Clicker 5®, and My Own Bookshelf®.
I divide my time between creating on the computer and exploring various natural environments. I might be spotted attempting to take photographs while riding a horse or holding my camera out of a wave while photographing a tide pool. All of my interests and experiences go into the activities and other resources you’ll find in Annie’s Resource Attic. My goal is to provide you with materials that make classwork the joyous voyage of discovery it was meant to be.
To my daughter (who is known on the web as “GreekGeek”) for talking me through the initial download and installation of the WordPress software for this site. She has over 100 web pages on hubpages.com, including the three I’ve put in the Info Links and two more in the Fun To Do and Free Stuff sections at the bottom of the sidebar.
There are too many educational ones to list, so click the link to Mythphile on HubPages or to Greekgeek on HubPages and scroll through them! Suggestion: Wouldn’t it be a great student project to turn a report into one of these HubPages? It’s a way for students to actually publish their work. With the right supervision and benchmark requirements, this could be a super writing motivator!
And to Samhain the cat, for illustrating the Special Needs Access section on the System Requirements page. Samhain is a very special cat indeed. She owns my daughter, and has a web page of her own. If you’ve had a rough day and need a laugh, click the link to Samhain’s page and look for links to two videos, The Concrete Dance and Rototail Cat. You’ll feel better right away!
