Memorable Moments from March

Tech Tip: Digital Media Exit Card

This Tech Tip can be used with any discipline! Here's some fun ideas on how to analyze your students' learning with digital tools:

  1. Have students boil down the essence of a class in a Tweet. Or create a Twitter inspired board like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/83949980524752415/ (just make sure students are limited to 140 character "tweets").
  2. Students find/create a photo illustrating the key learning moment and then post it on a class Flickr or Instagram account.
  3. Challenge students to create a 6-second Vine video or 16-second MixBit video that summarizes the major elements covered in class.

This concept is from Matt Levison's Edutopia blog.

Hey YOU! Return Your Library Stuff!

Please make sure all of your library items are returned by May 22nd. It's critical that we have an accurate inventory and can replace any lost/damaged items before we come back from summer break. Thank you!

Also, May 5th will be the last day for students to check out books. This ensures we are able to track down books before school ends. If you know you have an assignment that requires students to check out materials after May 5th, please come speak to us in the Library.
