One of the best aspects of my job is getting to talk to teachers about the amazing things their students are doing in class. The Teachers always get excited as they share the students’ work because they are so proud of how innovative the students have been. This is exactly what happened when I talked to Mrs. Bach about her MP1 projects. She pulled out a bunch of projects for me to look at and had a hard time organizing them because they were all so good for different reasons. The podcasts and cell cities were particularly impressive. In this issue you will also find a great alternative to Grammarly called ProWriting Aid.
Can’t keep up with the blog because I am struggling to keep up with all the awesomeness of my colleagues. In this 3rd edition of the 2018-2019, the MiddSouth Innovates takes a look at a World History class creating campaign materials for Roman emperors using Piktochart and Animoto and ideas for helping the teacher share the decision making responsibilities with students as the classroom transitions to a student-centered learning environment.
This school year is whizzing by. I can’t believe we are already halfway through November and Winter Break is so close you can see it on the horizon. I have been amazed at how many teachers are taking this year to add technology integration goals into their professional plans and innovating their classroom practices.
In this issue of the MiddSouth Innovates, we take a look at a Math teacher who is looking to integrate more Social Media into her classroom, taking the first steps toward a student-centered learning environment by adding student choice assignments, and our October 3D printing challenge in the Media Center.
