November and December Happenings
Keynote Palooza with Mr. Hooker and Mrs. Smith
I invited the Directer of Innovation and Digital Learning in EISD to come to EE and co-teach a lesson on the iPad App, Keynote, to all of our 3rd Graders. We got the idea from one shared by an Apple Distinguished Educator. It involved students selecting shapes that told something about themselves. Carl created a template to share with students and we used Showbie for the work flow. The shapes were added to a silhouette of their choosing. We shared examples, showed them how to find, move, and reshape the objects they selected for their silhouette and the students were off and running!
Hour of Code 2017
Each year, our students join students from across the globe as they learn what it means to code and how coding will effect their futures. Code.org has lots of resources that guide the teachers and students through their hour of exploration with a plethora of videos and tutorials. The highlight for me is watching the students collaborate on solutions and problem solve challenges that at first they believed were impossible.
In addition, I created this Smore to help simplify the process for Staff.
