Some food for thought…
“Technology plays an interesting role in student ownership. That device in their pocket has all the information in the world. It can connect them to anyone, allow for collaboration, and be used for a variety of innovative purposes. As teachers, we have to embrace the notion that technology can open up a world of learning opportunities, and then give our students the chance to own those opportunities.” – A.J. Juliani
I listed my 2 favorite, few all 6 truths here
5th grade students prepared a walking tour of Lincoln School and its surroundings to highlight changes that occurred throughout the years. The students photographed, edited, recorded student audio, created QR codes and assembled the brochure. The QR Codes on the brochure can be scanned to hear the students speak about specific landmarks. Students then helped to create a Google Slide presentation from the brochure. All were invited to view the virtual building tour created for Lincoln School’s Centennial day.
Students in Ms. Fox’s class presented researched information from their space unit while pretending to broadcast their information live from the moon. The class used the Green Screen app by Do ink to add a moon image behind the video clip. Students really looked like they were broadcasting live!
Mrs. LeRouzic created a blog (in Blogger) to share audio recordings (via AudioBoom) of student presentations during weekly current events. Mr. Stiefbold and Mrs. Zimany are also working on broadcasting their class current events.
Mrs. Macken and Mrs. Bakos shared student nonfiction reading on a Padlet wall. Students were practicing fluency while sharing facts to peers. Parents were invited to visit the Padlet wall (click “wall” and enter the password: Caldwell to view). Our plan is to have students listen to the recordings and learn how to comment while sharing new information learned from listening.
