PaperSlide Videos get kids Communicating, Collaborating and Creating!

As a fun activity in the short time we had between the end of PSSA's and the beginning of Marking Period 4, I challenged my 7th grade Mechanicsburg Middle School Pre-Algebra kids to research and create paperslide videos relating to a topic they had ALREADY learned during the year.  Prior to beginning, I showed the students what a paperslide video was, how it was made and what it should look like by USING paperslide examples. 

I allowed the students to create their own groups of 2 or 3…

Students understanding the value of assessment - nice to see!

This was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.

Recently I spent a few minutes in the classroom of SHS Marketing teacher Michelle Kovac.  Her Marketing students had just turned in projects that day.  


When I came into the class the students were in the process of evaluating similar projects turned in by last year's students.  Mrs. Kovac had given her students a rubric when they…

My Vision for Meetings (AKA – Making Meetings Somewhat Useful)

I’ve been in a lot of meetings – some of them for work, some for volunteering and some for social purposes.  I was at a meeting last night and while it was run well there were some things that came to mind about making meetings better and using technology to do so.

There are a lot of commonalities to the meetings I’ve been to and they’re usually not good. I’m going to outline some of the annoying problems that reoccur…

Are Checklists worth the effort? The Checklist and the Group Project

I don’t know about you, but I am the type of person that likes to get things quickly and not spend a lot of time debating or arguing. Case in point, whenever I go shopping I tend to buy things quickly with the goal of getting out of the store as soon as possible. This usually results in my forgetting to purchase a few items or my buying something which is overpriced or doesn’t fit right.

I have realized, the hard way, that whenever I spend a few moments and make a list of things I… Continue

Using Web-Based Resouces in Science Investigations

I found during my teaching middle school science and working with inservice teachers, students typically had better science fair projects when they used web-based real world data bases or collaborated with students around the country.

Using Online Resources

Students used online resources to support presentations PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheet(s) for data, and word processing for sharing findings of their science fair… Continue

Connecting students around the globe

I have a vision where students connect with their peers from around the world. Why? Because it's interesting. It's challenging to create global friendships, across cultures and across seas. And it's interesting to learn what other are studying. Even the very precise studies, like math, are not exact all over the world. Sometimes you need help figuring out a problem and someone from across the world, who studied it in a different way, will offer that different angle that opens your eyes. This is… Continue
