  • Thing 12: Final Reflection
    1: What did you learn?How did you put what you learned into action at school? Personally?Personally and at school I've been going crazy with the Bitmoji extension for Chrome, adding it to emails, presentations, and student essays for reactions. The kids and I both get a kick out of it. I've ... read more

  • Final Reflection … Again!
    I wasn’t able to complete as many “Things” this year as I had hoped. I completed ten last year, but need to be content with only five this year. It was a busy year personally and professionally and I struggled with the “me time” to sit down and devote time ... read more

  • Thing 24: Digital Tattoo
    I’m a hard copy, read a book kind of person. I don’t own an e-reader nor a tablet. However, I do consider myself somewhat tech savvy. I walk the line between knowing and understanding the digital world we live in, but cherishing some of the “old fashion” way of doing ... read more

While they are from many different cultures, one glue that binds these 11 – 13 year-olds together is their reliance on their cell phones. They use them to translate, schedule, update, draft and DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT. ... read more

  • Thing 17 – Media Skills
    As I began to consider which Thing to do next I decided to select Thing 17 – Media Skills. I chose Media Skills because I regularly create flyers and I produce video’s for our school.  I’ve used YouTube, iMovie, PPT, Spark, Publisher and a few more but my product almost ... read more

  • Thing 45 – Anything Goes Google
    This year, our school moved from 1:1 iPads to 1:1 Google Chromebooks. Initially, it was challenging because many of us had fully integrated the iPads into our classroom curriculum. Students became adept at apps that we used across classrooms and so did teachers. We spent the summer and beginning of ... read more

  • Thing 10: Personal Learning Networks
    Professional Learning Networks:First and foremost, I rely on other teachers in my building for ideas!  Besides being right there at my fingertips all day, everyday, they also are familiar with inner city, high needs students.  Many times, the articles, websites and resources I find just won't work for my students ... read more

  • Thing 12: Final Reflection
    Silly as it is this picture pretty much sums it up.  Over the last two years, the Cool Tools PD has been consistently the best professional development that I've participated in.  I've struggled in the past to find professional development that both fits my needs thematically and fits my desired ... read more
