hi, teacher fellows!

So glad to visit with Teacher Fellows this week! I always share with prospective Fellows that one of the BEST decisions I ever made was to apply for a program that was just beginning but showed amazing potential to change so many lives. We will be talking about bitmoji, google jamboards and drawing. I’m ready to dive in for some great discussion on how these tools with support student engagement and learning next year!

gif it over for brush ninja

I have used brush ninja a few times this year to allow kids a chance to make their own animated gifs while illustrating their learning. One week we illustrated vocabulary terms, some students showed a change in a character’s feelings, and others showed natural disasters or events. No matter the task, brush ninja allows an element of creativity in their demonstration of understanding. We can’t get enough! Easy to use and customize, students learn quickly how to change a background, duplicate a slide to show change gradually, and to save to their google drives and share images with peers. Here are a few students samples, all quickly created in one class session.
