The Hour of Code - Coming the Week of December 3-9
Beyond the Classroom Walls
Last year we started our own #ipadacademy Twitter chat. The chat allows our teachers to have an online conversation, share ideas, and be inspired. Our #ipadacademy chats are held on Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM CST. The next chat this year will be next week, Tuesday, November 13 and will be moderated by Santha Walters and Linda Dunlap with Amanda Monk serving as the greeter. Here is a link to the Google Doc with the questions. Just make a copy of the doc and add your answers. Copy/paste to save time when you are in the live chat.
We are incredibly proud of the #ipadacademy teachers who have stepped up to lead each month’s chat this semester and how they generously share their innovative ideas with others. The archived chats can be found here.
NETA Contest are Open
NETA continues to offer contests for teachers and students to showcase model projects, recognize outstanding student work and provide opportunities for teachers to attend the national ISTE summer conference to enhance professional practice. We also recognize outstanding leadership at the administrative and classroom levels through individual recognition awards. We do our best to truly have something for everyone!
Contest submissions are now being accepted until January 10, 2019. Click HERE to enter a contest.
In addition to any prizes specific to a particular contest, winning educators will receive a non-transferable, complimentary 2019 NETA Spring Conference registration and if a substitute is required, the winner’s school district will be reimbursed the actual cost for the substitute for both days of conference attendance.
Please email any questions to the NETA Contest Chair, Lynne Herr (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope you showcase the great work you are doing and enter a NETA contest.
In this Edutopia article, ‘Student-Created Videos in the Classroom’ we read about four types of videos students can quickly create and share giving them a reflective opportunity and you a solid formative assessment piece.
Hashtags Telling Our Story
One of the most powerful parts of Twitter is the hashtag! It connects people, ideas, and creates communities within Twitter. It is a unique way for our teachers and administrators to share the amazing things happening in our schools, classrooms, clubs, teams and organizations. Our district hashtag, #bpsne, continues to grow and is becoming a powerful tool that we can leverage as a district to connect all of our teachers, students, parents, and community members. We encourage you to continue sharing the great things happening in your classrooms. Here is a list of all of the Bellevue Public School educators on Twitter. Let's create the 2018-2019 Bellevue Public Schools story together!
