Habits of Work & Guiding Principles Self Assessment on Synergy

As part of this week's Techie Thursday post, I mentioned that I created a "Habits of Work & Guiding Principles Self Assessment". I used a school wide rubric from the high school to create a four question self assessment that will automatically grade the students on each of the HOWs/GPs and then enter it into your grade book. I would recommend using it as a formative assignment with your students and then entering your own grades in as a summative. It's a great way to get your kids used to taking assessments on Synergy AND, since it goes right into your grade book, it's also a good way to keep your grade book active and inform your parents/guardians how their student is doing.

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.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

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:
