I had a great time at EdCamp PDX this weekend. I have some new resources I am excited to try out in the classroom.
-Integrating Google Voice into classroom projects: What a fun way to get students communicating and working on career related skills. I hope to have students all use google voice in content related projects this semester. I’m really excited!
– Encourage students to use something other than powerpoint:
-Use Technology to encourage creative discussion, perhaps using these tools will encourage all students to participate:
-Use technology as a pre-unit brainstorm or to share inspiration
The National Archives offers a free interactive primary source tool. I’m really excited to try this out in my government classes!
