What’s Appening!

What a great couple of weeks I’ve had! Hey to my Texas, Alabama, and Michigan friends I’ve seen this month! It was a lot fun to chat and share stories with you.

So, here’s what’s APPening on my iPad. Like that? I try to be clever, you know.

1) Overgram for my Instagram pals. I love Instagram. It is really a simple way to share what is going on with folks and how you see things on any given day. To make the experience a little sweeter, I stumbled upon Overgram that several of my daughter’s friends have been using. With Overgram you can take your pics and add a caption or saying over the picture. You kind of create an inspirational poster of your own to share. Overgram is a free app and of course there are upgrades you can choose to make things more customized.

2)  Word Cloud Lovers… Try Tag Cloud app on iPad. I have several word cloud creators on my iPad, but none of them have really wowed me. Tag Cloud does cost $.99 but to me it is worth it. You can’t make shapes like Tagxedo, but you do have more interesting word cloud options and colors. Keep using those word clouds and try out Tag Cloud.


3) Nearpod: I am really liking Nearpod and the capability to share lessons/presentations with students and keep them on literally the same page as the teacher. Nearpod is a content sharing app that is free. I like to be able to insert student interactive tasks throughout the lesson and Nearpod does that. I am including it in my new book, but wanted to give you the heads up to check it out. Once you have it all set up and ready to go it can be really useful.

4) ROVER alert! Those of using the Rover app need to be aware they are limiting the sites you can now view using the app to educational sites only. In fact, some sites may not be available even if you consider them educational. So, heads up before you go into your next lesson and try to access a favorite Flash website.. make sure you try it out before using with students.

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!

“It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
