  • Cool Tools Course: Thing 12 . Final Reflection
    I have thoroughly enjoyed my time exploring this Cool Tools course. The amount of information collected in one place is staggering! What is interesting about the course is that for the projects I did complete, there are another 5 or so topics I thoroughly explored but did not complete which ... read more

  • Cool Tools Course: Thing 7.Audio Tools
    I was very excited to pursue something along the lines of audio in this Thing 7. I have thought podcasting in some way, shape, or form would be great for students and staff alike. Therefore, I began Thing 7 with great anticipation. I began by exploring the various tool listed ... read more

  • Cool Tools Course: Thing 15.Augmented & Virtual Reality
    AR and VR are good examples of technology that I have found to be very interesting, yet have not implemented in my instruction. As I dove into the topic, I tried to approach it in a way that would assist teachers who are in a similar situation. As a library ... read more

  • Thing #12 – Reflection
    ​For me, the hit of this year’s course was Bitmoji.  This surprised me because initially that Thing was not even in my top 10.  However when a tangential avatar need arose that Bitmoji could fill, I started reading.  As I mentioned in my blog, I also needed a fresh approach ... read more

  • Thing 37: Green Screen Fun
    The tutorials in this lesson were excellent! Although I have used our school's green screen for a few projects in the past, I really enjoyed thinking about new ways to use green screen technology for both videos and photos and to take the time to learn some advanced skills and ... read more

  • Thing 9: Search Tools Ninja
    It's funny how often we take for granted that Google is how we search the Internet. When I was first teaching, I often planned lessons comparing search engines. I encouraged students to compare results and explore new tools. But I haven't done that in several years, and even in my ... read more

  • Cool Tools for School, Thing 12: Final Reflections
    For my final reflections, I thought I’d try using Adobe Spark Video. I’ve used it once before to create a summary video about my trip to the AASL National Conference but this time, I made use of the voice recording option in addition to the pictures and text! Although the ... read more

  • Thing 12: Final Reflections & What’s Next?
    It's very difficult to believe that another school year is close to ending - it seems like the year just began yet at times it has seemed to drag on forever.  Last year at this time I was very worried about moving to a new school with only a few ... 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
