Still digitally decluttering…
Books, Reading, etc.
- One challenge at MPOW is getting the middle school students into the library (time, distance, lack of discrete space are issues). So we’re thinking about the pop-up library.
- Speed Friending in the Library? Sounds like the perfect start-of-school activity!
- Hoping I can emulate Buffy’s work with my students. Or Ethan’s. Particularly since we know colleges are still requiring research (and five page papers). A little design thinking might help. And maybe not this year, but next?
- I’m fond of this sign, but this one would work, too.
- This was done with sixth graders, but could easily scale to any middle or upper school class.
- This is of Allentown, but imagine creating a history or English class project (I know I’ve suggested this before… hoping this year a teacher takes me up on it!). And how cool it would be to integrate the Newseum into your resources? or a Digital Timeline?
- MPOW is a GAFE/Schoology school, and Videonot.es looks like it would be a great tool to use!
- Right now, we’re BYOD (so have computer labs) – Doug has great ideas about 1:1.
- This list of tools is a great starter toolkit!
- It’s the start of a new school year. Why not declutter your laptop before things get crazy?
- I’m not looking for a new job, and one might argue that this blog serves as a portfolio, but that doesn’t mean that Katie’s portfolio advice will go to waste. Go and do likewise.
- Looking for a different conference to attend? Maybe the First Year Experience is for you. Or maybe the LibraryTechnology conference.
And, as always, Will Richardson has some great ideas about trends we should be watching. Something to ponder as the school year starts.
