Mission Possible-7th Grade Orientation

Mission Possible-7th Grade Orientation | Education | Scoop.it

I used a PowToon template to make a short introduction for my 7th grade orientation. Since most of them are returning students, I wanted to make it fast, and I didn't want to talk as much. I print out numbered instructions, with plenty of roles for students who don't volunteer for the big jobs, or who are new to the school. Here are my instructions.  

 

I will show this short video, hand out the instructions, then use this Bruno Mars parody, as the video in the instructions, since they didn't see it as 6th graders.

Fun idea for an active library orientation. This could be fun for the Freedom to Read elective to make something like this for 5th graders to do.

9 free ways to grow as an educator this summer | Education | Scoop.it
Ah, summer … that time when all teachers leave school work and school thoughts behind for months to lounge by the pool. Right? Well, in more than a decade of teaching, it’s never been that way for me! Honestly, I’ve never wanted my education career to take a major hiatus for months at a time. [...]

Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class

Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class | Education | Scoop.it

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means… It’s time to “Tech It Up” with another cool tool that can be utilized in the educational setting.

 

So, let’s get right to it. This week’s shout out goes to Photos for Class, a site that’s ideal for safely searching for images that can be incorporated into classroom lessons, activities and projects.

 

Besides providing G-rated images via Flickr and proprietary filters, downloaded images also include citations that are automatically generated by the web tool. Attribution includes name of the author and photo, a link to the original photo and the name and type of license as well as a link to the licensing terms. How cool is that? No more worrying about the copyright police banging on your door. Photos for Class has got you covered!

I have several of the books listed i.e. Richardson, Shirky, and Pink. I would recommend Heidegger's The Question Concerning Technology. His concept Enframing talks about technology in a much broader and overlooked way. For example, technology is not just digital. It is discursive i.e. curricula.

"“Am I writing to myself?” That’s what I used to wonder when I first started teaching Spanish online a year ago. My learning management system, message boards, and group emails were impersonal and unresponsive—more like writing in my diary than sharing information with my students. I never knew for certain who read and understood my announcements or received an (electronic) handout or assignment directions."
