Weeks of 04/15/13, 04/22/13, & 04/29/13

Techie's of the Week 04/15/13 and 04/22/13

04/15/13 Fowler and Teal Ms. Fowler and Mr. Teal have been working on blending/flipping their classrooms by showing "show me" videos. The videos were created using the "Show Me" app on an iPad, and then uploaded to Symbaloo. These are great reviews for interventions, but also allow the students time to rewind, stop to process, and watch a lesson again, while the teachers work with small groups.

Techie of the Week 04/29

04/29/13 Suellen Hill. Ms. Hill started having her students use Edcanvas so they can demonstrate knowledge of specific TEKS. Students will create a video that goes with their concept, and also take their own pictures to show the concept as well as propose a problem with steps demonstrating their problem solving skills with a particular concept.
