We All Matter!

One of the guest speakers at the CONNECT conference, Angela Maier, welcomed us by reminding us that we all matter. In her presentation, she spoke about how students need to know that they matter, and they need us to tell them this all the time, in many different ways. Angela also spoke about how we, as adults, need to know that we matter too, and to remind ourselves that what we do is so important, and it matters. So in case you have forgotten today, or haven't been told recently... YOU MATTER! Take a peek at her link below with some of the ways she's incorporating this concept into classrooms.

Math Presentation

Take a peek at the math presentation below. It was created in Google and has some really interesting and interactive features to teaching a problem solving lesson. The lesson could also be modified to other subjects by using the interactive features in Google (or Microsoft!).

The second link is to a SMORE that is completely math related. It has interactive tools, hashtags to follow, websites, blogs, and various formative tools to assess math!


Making IT Work

This was a fantastic presentation, put together from Joanne Borges in LDSB, about how to use Microsoft O365 tools. The presentation has great tips and tools, as well as videos, to further our learning with Microsoft!
