Let Your Kids Be Explorers

Kids are natural explorers. When left to their own devices, they can turn a cardboard box into a rocket ship exploring space, a fort to fend off attackers or a hundred other things. To a child, creativity comes naturally and the possibilities in the world are endless. Their answer to the age-old question "Why?" is a simple, “Why not?"

Listen! Now I´m talking! A project about language, media and democracy with 7th graders from the southern suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden

Listen! Now I’m talking! is about language and democracy.

48 7th graders have a very concrete mission:

Beginning-of-year Activities

I consciously overplan the first few days. The worst possible first-day scenario is to arrive unprepared. Over the years, I've collected a number of first-day activity ideas - far too many to use.

I've pared down the activities based on the following considerations:

  • My first goal is to build classroom community, making all students feel comfortable and successful.
  • My second goal is to establish routine.
  • My third goal is to formatively assess students'…

Introducing the Digital Arts Toolbar and the Teacher Tech Toolbar!

I recently created a toolbar for my Digital Arts students to access the various freeware and cloudware resources we use in class. I also included a directory of engaging educational games and activities. Though it's designed with my students in mind, I'd like to share it with the rest of the Classroom 2.0 community. Here's the link -…

The Octopus Gets Due Respect

My last post was a highlight of a train wreck of a children's book. The conversation in the comments section was all about media literacy. If you know me, you know that I don't like to dwell long on things negative. And thus- this post was published.

Regardless of your take on The Septapus, I have felt the need for a review of a really super piece of children’s literature since publishing that post. I guess I just feel the need… Continue

Being There –Panoramic Virtual Field Trips

By Alix Pehette

Cross-posted from The Impetuous Geek

Live, real-time field trips involve all the senses. We walk, stand and turn around to view our surroundings. We move closer to inspect an object or look to see a distant view. The experience is immersive and that’s what makes it memorable.

The opportunities for field trips are often limited by funding, transportation issues and administrative… Continue

I wanted to do a fun lesson with virtual students when they met in person for their academy day. They were all ArtSnacks families and were very familiar with me virtually but had met me only a few times in person. I decided to make styrofoam dinosaurs with them. Teachers and parents began collecting styrofoam packing material weeks in advance and on our day we were quite ready to build! For the materials list go… Continue
