The Amazing Race

Digital Learning Edition: Race Leg 7


As you know, technology is always changing and evolving. It seems like every day there is some new gadget or new tool. We knew it would be impossible to share all of them with you in an 8 week span. In order to share some of our favorite tools with you, we've changed the format from previous weeks.

Each of your Amazing Race hosts have created a 5-10 minute video of one of their favorite tools. These tools can be incorporated into your classroom or used for professional productivity. You'll learn about Plickers, Google Chrome Extensions, Smore, Mystery Skypes, TweetDeck, and Formative.

There are no Express Pass or Scenic Route videos this week. Everyone will have the same task.

Step 1: Watch the Race Leg 7 videos (Tools 1-6)

Step 2: Complete the task.

Step 3: Submit your completed task on Twitter using the hashtag #amazingfbisd.


After you watch the videos for all 6 tools, pick your favorite tool that we shared. On Twitter, share a summary of what you learned, an "aha" moment, or how you could see yourself using that tool, either in your classroom or for professional productivity. Use the hashtag #amazingfbisd. OPTIONAL: Include a picture of you using your favorite tool or a screenshot of something you created using one of the tools.
