It is the end of the semester (15 weeks total)

Actually, it is the end of an extremely productive semester for the majority of you. I know you have been frustrated at times, and that is ok, think about it, if you already knew everything you wouldn't be here.


Additionally, remember you are learning to do things like a TEACHER and need to stop thinking like a student.


I have enjoyed having you in class this semester online and on campus. As you know we did a little experiment using Seesaw this fall. This was more of an experiment for me than you, but I am happy with Seesaw. I am going to make a change for spring. Instead of students joining MY Seesaw, they will create their own account at a teacher and publish to their own Seesaw blog. This will give them URL to post in Canvas. The challenge was not grading when turned in on time, it was when assignments were turned in late. Putting the blog URL for the assignment in canvas gives me a notification that there is an assignment to grade. I am explaining this because it is important for you to understand that sometimes you need to try something, find the pitfalls and then figure out a way to change and improve. That is exactly what I am doing.

YES: if you turned it in,

YES: if you turned it in, it will be graded before grades are finalized. Next week, after this last final assignment has been turned in, I will wade through all your assignments in Seesaw and Padlet to make sure I have a grade for everything. If you turned things in LATE they will be counted for points, just not full points. But they will be graded. So please be patient, if turned in late, it takes time to get to it with 150 students.

This is your final reflection project and hopefully, it will DEMONSTRATE TO YOU that you have learned and accomplished a great deal this semester and that you are a little braver when it comes to technology and a little more a little willing to try something new.

You learned about Clips in your recent Everyone Can Create project. Chapter 1 Video

Add your Pinterest URL in Canvas, Week 15

DO NOT add your Pinterest URL until you have your 150. In other words, I will only check your Pinterest one time, so you will only get points up to 150 based on the number of educational pins at the time your turn in and I check.
