At the Tech & Learning Leadership Summit that took place December 2019, leaders in technology and education shared innovative ideas used to reduce device loss and theft.
This teacher taught students how to build and program their own game designs in tandem with computational thinking using the Sphero Bolt and littleBits Code Kit. Learn how he used these tech experiences as scaffolding for even more complex CS activities.
The screen recording web tools and apps below also have cool features like the ability to highlight areas, draw, upload images, add pdfs, and more.
Below I’ve listed free design tools teachers and students can use to create digital graphics and publications.
Social bookmarking helps students visualize and personalize their learning in boards, magazines, or walls!
Vision boards are collages of inspirational people, quotes, and visuals to inspire an individual to pursue their dreams and passions.
If you build it, they will charge…or so tech teacher, Kyle Crawford, figured when he offered maker tools and tasked his students to design and build a classroom cell phone charging station.
Not only can students create stories about any topic, but they also have the opportunity to be published authors which motivates many to continue reading and writing.
Students can craft messages for their peers, family members, teachers, and school staff or participate in digital greeting exchanges with students in other cities or countries.
Leaders from urban, suburban, and rural districts were challenged to consider what digital equity looked like and discuss pain points and solutions.
This is a great way for students to be creative and to work on their writing skills by describing or writing about their holiday traditions, plans, or memories.
I am going to be transitioning all of my class websites from traditional Google Sites to simple Google Documents.
