Tech at Orchard Hills School
Behind the Scenes With the DLC...
School-Wide Performance Task Event!
Day 1 was filled with articles, videos, infographics and charts all about Health & Wellness!
The Day 1 School-Wide Haiku discussion had students and staff producing over 1,000 posts in under 30 minutes!
On Day 2, small groups collaborated to write and produce a video on a topic of their choosing. Student groups could be seen all around campus, filming, writing and editing their creations!
Fellow Spotlight: Kim Gullo
NaNoWriMo in her classroom has been a HUGE success. Students are engaged and creating amazing pieces of work, crushing their initial word count goals- many students have written over 10,000 words! When novels are complete, Ms. Gullo and DLC Steinmann will work together to come up with editing and revising strategies for students and move on to digital publishing!
