Happy Holidays!

This tech snack is geared towards incorporating technology and a little bit of holiday spirit into your classroom. What other ideas can you share with teachers from around our district? Click on this Padlet to share your ideas and to read ideas from others!

Padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (ex. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.

December Goodies

Did your students take part in the Hour of Code this past week? Well, here’s your chance to keep your students CODING during the holidays! Load the Google extension Google Santa Tracker and Explore Santa’s Village. Coding and logic games for all ages are now at your fingertips to explore and learn!

Another holiday favorite for our younger students is ABCya. You will find online games for students in K-5 sorted by grade level. The games incorporate areas such as math and language arts while introducing basic computer skills. For a holiday activity, try the animation studio or word cloud generator!

Upcoming Technology PD

Don't forget to check the FCPS Professional Development Online Menu. 2017 will be a great year to learn new ways to incorporate technology into your classroom. 20+ new sessions are being added this week.
