Take a deep breath. It's the first Snow Day! - Techie Tuesday 12/3

Image
Hi, Blog Followers! Here is this week's Techie Tuesday. I delayed sending it on purpose in hopes that you would enjoy your first snow day of the year. I'm keeping this week's slide nice and light though, so check it out. You can see the tips from the past weeks (or last year) and access all of the links by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.



As a reminder, here is the menu of ways I can serve you: Co-Teaching: Two heads are better than one! Let me teach with you for a day! We can work together to make sure that problems are solved and students get the individual attention they need. I should probably be involved in your planning as well for this to be most effective. Google Expeditions would be included in this option.Feedback: Our students crave timeline and specific feedback. Teachers are no different. Invite me over and let me join your class! I can debrief with you afterwards and talk about what I saw. I am…

Hi, Blog Followers! There are a couple quick hits for this week's Techie Tuesday. One bit to notice is that I now have a calendar on my site for where I am based each day. That does not mean you can't book me at any school (please do because I need to get my steps in). It is meant to give you a heads up for where I plan to "hang my hat" if you want to stop by and catch me in your school. Of course, I might be in a meeting, but I thought that it might be helpful. Let me know what you think!

Hi, Blog Followers! Phew! Conference season is officially wrapped up. Seven presentations at two conferences in two states. And I learned so much to bring back to you, too. I'll be sharing content from both conferences in the weeks ahead. One of the "oldie but a goodie" tools that was frequently used during MassCUE sessions last week would be Mentimeter, which I share in this weeks tech tips.

Hi, Blog Followers! I'm going to be heading to MassCUE before 5AM tomorrow morning to spend two days presenting in Gillette Stadium and being a sponge to learning as much as I possibly can with our neighbors to the south. It's always very interesting to see "how things are done" in another state, so I am expecting to be very overwhelmed by the end of the day on Thursday. Because I'll be off campus, I might not get back to you as quickly as you'd like. But I'll be back on Friday!
