12/20 Techie Thursday!

Hi, Blog Followers!
Happy last techie Thursday of 2018! When you get another one of these, we'll be turning the calendar to next year. So crazy! I hope that you have lots of fun planned for next week or at least lots of relaxing. I know that my kiddo is beyond excited to have a much needed break and I'm right there with her.

This week's Techie Thursday features another giveaway! Check out the image below for details and to access all of the links on the slide. If you have a tool you would like me to research for different options, just drop me a line. If your students are creating green screen videos, podcasts, collaborating on Google Docs, working on a hour of code, or anything else having to do with using technology in your class, WE WANT TO SEE IT! Feel free to share the link out on your website, Google Classroom page, or any other way you communicate with your students.

If you'd like to get together to learn about any of these things, plan a lesson together integrating more technology, get some guidance with setting up your GP/HOW check in on Synergy, or get non-evaluative feedback just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com

And, as always, you can see the tips from the past weeks by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.

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.
