Quick tip: EdSurge weekly email

I love a good curated email list!  (I still enjoy getting the Intercom every Monday morning in my email box.)  Toward the end of the year, I started to subscribe to the EdSurge newsletter.  Luckily, I had a free block every Thursday morning.  Each week, I enjoyed sitting down and reading the various articles aboutContinue reading “Quick tip: EdSurge weekly email”

First VedChat tomorrow night!

Seesaw: Initial steps and moving beyond journaling

Last year, I implemented Seesaw in all my classes.  I traditionally used it for a writing journal and an occasional voice link.  As I play around more in Seesaw this year, I found myself using it more and more.  I also have students who really like to take pictures with it for their journal entries.Continue reading “Seesaw: Initial steps and moving beyond journaling”
