Mobile Learning 2015

Easy Blog Photo
Wes and I had a great time at Mobile Learning 2015. We connected with many friends and made several new connections. I am looking forward to having Cori Araza’s HS students partner with my students to learn how to create games! I am also planning on redesigning my classroom thanks to Erin Klein. Awesome weekend of learning.

Black History Biography Projects

My 3rd and 4th grade students spent a month researching different people as a part of our Black History Month project. In our 1:1 classroom students did their own independent research from web, video, and print to create narrated ebooks about their chosen person. Students used Book Creator for iPad to record their final reports. One student chose iMovie and created an iMovie trailer. I’m so proud of how hard they worked and how well their reports turned out.

Students Discover New iPad App

This week my students are discovering a new iPad app called News-O-Matic. It is a wonderful app for reading daily nonfiction stories based on current events. Students read articles that they’re interested in and then respond by either writing to the editor or responding with a picture. My students are eager to read the news every morning! One student Kevin was super excited when the editor wrote back to him!
