HS: Follow Up to Doing the PLP on Google Drive

On Monday afternoon I held a workshop session after school on how I would suggest doing the PLP via Google Drive. I feel that this is a viable solution that would provide the students and staff with skills that would be useful in their other classes as well. It will put the ownership back on the students so that it is easier for them to retain their PLP should they switch homebase teachers.

After the session, there were faculty members that requested the directions to be put out in step by step form. I spent a chunk of time doing just that in preparation for the next extended homebase. All of the directions as well as a screencast and example on it are all on my "Guides & Tutorials" website at this link.

As always, let me know what you think about this post!

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
