Glogster V. Excel Posters

My character poster (much like this one: link) that I made in Excel included a picture of myself, the word "blissful" and its definition. It was very plain and I would probably only use this in the classroom to present basic ideas.

Veterans Day, Google Apps, And More

I know everyone is ready for that first bright day when our students return to socialize and learn. But here are a few ideas for using Google Apps, including an activity for Veterans Day: a short 150 word essay on the simple topic "Honor All Veterans." This was sponsored by our local VFW last year, but two of my students carried it further, and if you use Google Apps, you might want to try this, or adapt it to another project.

 

 

Google Docs is our tool to…

Link to Original Blog Post click here

Classrooms for the Digital Age

I am definitely a digital immigrant.  Ironically, my job is to support 35 teachers who teach digital natives. While I am not afraid of technology, I do have what Marc Prensky would define as a accent.  On example of my accent would be that I send out a monthly newsletter and then print copies for each teacher to review at monthly meetings with teams of teachers.  I would classify two of the teachers I support as digital…
