Play and Learn in the Tech Sandbox

Let's review

We will call our tools devices.
Where are they?
How did you find them?
Where will you find them tomorrow?

Let's talk about Digital Citizenship

Respect yourself.
Respect others.
Only use your stuff.
Only Señor McCright may add apps to the iPads.

Let's present the images we took at the Iowa Historical Building

You could use Chatter Pix to identify an animal or person.
Here is my example:

Let's make slideshow

Click on Haiku Deck.  Señor McCright has created Haiku Deck accounts for each of you. Enter your username and password.  Create a slideshow using 5 or more of your favorite images from the Iowa Historical Building.  You should start with a title page.
Here is my example:

Let's start making a video
by drawing

Click on didlr
Take 3 minutes to create something.  Then we'll share and comment.

Let's plan our next creation

Take a blank sheet of paper.  Fold it into 4 quarters or fold it in half twice.  Number the 4 areas on your paper 1, 2, 3, 4.  This will help you plan your next creation.
Think about the 4 Ps of story-telling:

Create another story

Use your images from the Iowa Historical Building and tell another story.  Use Haiku Deck.

Let's evaluate an app

Every day you must evaluate the apps and tools you used.  Tell Señor McCright what you liked and did not like.

Let's talk about Brain Breaks

When you want to take a break from your project you may use one of these apps:
-Penguin Math
-Google Maps:  find your house, your school, New York City
-Khan Academy:  practice your Math
-Duolinguo:  learn a language
