This Weeks Success Story

I Got this email from a teacher this week!

Just wanted to let you know how much my students liked nearpod. It was easy to implement and the kids liked how interactive it was. They also liked having the slides on their phones. They said they much preferred it to a regular ppt. Thanks for your help!

Tech Tip of the Week :  A Way to Flip

The Goal of the Tech Tip of the Week is to get you interested in a topic. Please contact me if you would like to implement.

A Good Way to flip your classroom is through the Swivl App. The point of the App is to go along with the Swivl unit which follows you around the room as you deliver your presentation, but the App is FREE which allows you to use it even without the base. It's an easy, great way to record flipped videos for your classroom

Also, I will soon have one of the Swivl bases. You are free to borrow it! Just let me know!

My Mission

My entire mission at your school is to take your technology use to transformative. We want students to be able to create, and to have an education that is tailored to their needs. Are you going to be able to do this right away?  No, I am here to help hold your hand through those baby steps in order to let you do that. We can handle my help to you in one of three ways.

1. I can come in and do model lessons where we then progress to letting you do some of the same activities

2. I can take projects or assignments you are trying to do, and I can redesign them to up the choice factor and add the tech

3. I can kick you some ideas, and then I can follow up.
