Monday eLearning Missive

December 8, 2014

Testing 1, 2, 3....

ECA, ISTEP, Acuity, Tech Enhanced, Common Core, all words that have been a huge buzz while I'm visiting schools. Have you seen the resources the iTeam and Data Coaches have created for Grades 3-8? If not, check then out HERE.

Feel free to use the Flipcharts as templates for practice in your classes. Write a question that uses your content and have fun with it. If you'd like to bump up your ActivInspire skills, let me know. I'd be more than happy to help.

EVSC Photo Challenge

EVSC is holding a weekly photo challenge for teachers to capture the happenings of their classrooms. This week our topic is:

In Motion

How do you get your students moving? Snap some photos!

Please submit any photos from the week by:

  1. You can share via Instagram- Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #Selfie), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter- Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag#EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook- Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page
  4. You can share via Google Drive- If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through Google Drive. Use this link to access our shared folder. You will need to then click the blue Open in Drive button. Then drag your photo into the window, or click the red upload arrow in the upper-left to search for your photo and click Open. It would help us if you would name your photo with the week’s theme and your name and school.
