10 Ways to Help Students Create Quality Video and Audio Productions

#25wordstory Challenge

I happened across the Twitter 25 Word Story writing experiment and challenge a few days ago and thought this would be a great idea to share with my 6th grade gifted class. The goal is to tell a story in exactly 25 words. To introduce them to the concept, I shared Kevin Hodgson’s Prezi  titled “Sixty 25-Word Stories”. I really didn’t do much more than that and hoped that some of them would take interest.…

Parent Night Activities: Getting Parents and Students Actively Involved

It's never too early in the year to begin thinking about Parent Night.

 

The thought of talking for an hour to a group of adults seems daunting. Even with children, I try to speak no more than five minutes before directing them to an activity that synthesizes what was shared.

 

I have parents and students do the talking. Here are some suggestions if you want to get parents and students more active in the process:

 

1. Have parents active from the…

How to Breathe

I thought I'd do an opinion piece today. There is something that has been bothering me for quite some time, and I'd like to express my thoughts on it.

Did we have "p-learning" before that, when kids used pens for learning? It seems, to some, at least, the tool that is used to make the learning happen is considered more… Continue

Technology in the classroom

I have been reading about advances in the classroom in the 21st century, and I am wondering if an entirely paperless classroom is already a reality,  I have tried to reduce the paper used in my classroom and increase the technology utilized, but I am still not sure about how to proceed. I plan to network with other teachers in my school...those I know are tech savvy...to determine what basic things I can do to utilize more tech tools and less paper while maximizing learning. I think the best…
