"What a great lesson! I've not heard of the Edmondo version of Flat Stanley but it sounds great. I think my kindergarten students would really be motivated by this activity to learn about different cultures and make connections with…"
"I really like this activity! The Flat Stanley website looks like something I would definitely use in my classroom. I like how you used it as an ice breaker/activating strategy. The one thing I think I will use the most is the virtual field trips. I…"
"I love how you changed this lesson to really fit your subject. I was unaware of this app until you brought it to my attention. The students would really be able to show their creativity through the creation of the Flat Stanley. I also think that the…"
"I've always thought Flat Stanley was such a fun project. Now that he has gone digital I think it's even more fun. I agree that the digital version can open up more of the world to students. Not having to wait for the "snail mail"…"
"I can relate to the diigital version of Flat Sanley. My kids (12-20 years ago) took part in the "snail mail" version. I think the digital version would be more satisfying for kids who are used to instant gratification, and can see…"
"I was introduced to "Flat Stanley" a few years ago when my niece sent him to me for a visit. I had a lot of fun bringing Stanley on adventures, and my niece was so excited to see what Stanley experienced during his visit. …"
I chose the “Edmodo Flat Stanley App” for this lesson because it provides students with a variety of activities to express themselves and to connect with other students globally. The children's book "Flat Stanley", acts as an icebreaker for starting a pen pal relationship. As an art teacher, I like that students could create an online, distinctive version of the character Stanley (male), or Stella (female) and change the name to their own. This gave the site a visual arts connection.…See More
This is an exciting and meaningful assignment for your students. I like that your students will be researching environmental issues in their own community and then showcasing the information to a global audience. Creating for a larger…"
I like your lesson plan on EPALS. This would be the perfect way to study Africa and develop a connection with African children. How old are the students that you teach? As an art teacher, maybe I could work on a lesson plan like this with…"
I like your thoughts on designing an Ipad strictly for school use. That is a great idea! We don't want kids to be visiting the wrong sites or to be using Facebook when they are supposed to be studying, etc. This is going on right…"
I agree that the veteran teachers would have be resistant to learning and incorporating the new technology. Teachers that are near retirement don't want new challenges. I've seen teachers complain when they go to these…"
It would be difficult to initiate a one-to-one program at my school. I teach in a private school that goes from PK to 8th grade. One-to-one sounds so extreme. The parents might not be in agreement that technology is the way to go. All…"
"I love my Kindle and I'd probably love an Ipad even more. However, I think that books offer students the ability to easily refer back, review and make connections more than ipads. With studying and taking notes you can flip back to the previous…"
I teach art to first through eighth grade students at St. Joseph’s Episcopal School in Boynton Beach, Florida. I am now enrolled in the M. Ed. in Applied Technology in Education at Wilmington University. I also teach an Outreach class to at-risk students for the the Boca Raton Museum of Art. I use a Mac and a projector and I bring the museum on a road show to introduce their featured artists. Then we do a hands-on activity.
