Our district has been going through a lot of upgrades and installing more infrastructure to give access to technology in all classrooms (not just those CTE or computer courses.) I have been extremely lucky to have had the chance to pilot devices before most which have led to fundamental shifts in the way I teach so I was extra excited to share those ideas with my neighbor. Maybe too excited...
Arrived to this posted on my door...When the #nuggets keep coming! @erhs @CNUSD is better because of awesome educators like @mrsbyarshistory pic.twitter.com/ERRb3qYwTu— Luis Carrillo (@lcccarrillo) June 13, 2018
So I left him a bingo card and everything on it I had done at some point during the traditional school year and I wanted to challenge him to try as well. He get's a few more days to post his results (you can follow him on Twitter to see) but I am ready to share mine with you!
Here are some of my favorite things I did this summer with my students:
- They wrote and recorded a podcast while exploring revolutionary documents.
- They used My Maps to explore Imperialism around the world.
- They hosted a digital Philosophy Salon.
- They ran my classroom twitter account and upped the Gif game.
I also had my students try out Digitally Notebooking using Google Slides and the results have been amazing!
