Just spent a great day getting inspired and excited to try some new things with my students! The pixel art was fun and a great way to let kids be creative while still having the flexibility to change their minds as many times as they'd like! No ERASER necessary!
During one session we learned about Sutori (sutori.com). This programwill enable students to create digital timelines including pictures, maps, videos, etc. Thought this would be a great extension to our biography unit (although it could be utilized across the curriculum). There is a small annual fee for access but worth checking out!
Key note speaker was AWESOME! Matt Miller encourages us to consider "ditching the books" and become risk-takers in the classroom. By stepping out of our comfort zones and trying new and sometimes unique approaches, we can make the subject/topic more meaningful and engage our students. #maverickteacher
What will tomorrow bring?
