  • Thing 22: Teaching & Learning with Primary Sources
    Thing 22: Teaching & Learning with Primary Sources This is a very timely topic for me since I just attended a conference on Using Primary Documents in the Classroom by Librarian Maureen King. The web page on by the Library of Congress (LOC) is a great place to start learning ... read more

  • Thing 25: Green Screen Fun
    This is my green screen video created in Doink and then in iMovie.  This was fun to do, even if the video is a little primitive.  Some things that need to be improved upon… the shadows created on the “green screen” cause the background to bleed through in the movie, ... read more

  • Thing 31: Final Reflections – Lia Williams
    As with Cool Tools Session #1, I learned plenty from this session that I was able to incorporate into my teaching practice (and even one thing that applied for my home-life/own kids!). For school, I was able to incorporate a few different tools in my practice...from Flubaroo to GoogleSlides, to different ... read more

  • Thing 14:Bitmoji fun
    Oh....I couldn't resist this "thing."  I do Bitmoji (I have college age nieces and nephews...they keep us very up to date on the must have apps!)  and have introduced it to many people, but have never contemplated as a tool in school.   Here is my personal avatar that I use ... read more

  • Final Reflection
    First and foremost, this was one of my favorite PDs I have ever completed. These tools go beyond “cool” and are valuable, useful, and most of all, entertaining! Aside from my blog, I have been taking notes on a separate sheet of paper and starring the sources I really loved. ... read more

  • Thing 23: New AASL Standards
    First and foremost, before I started to dive into the Shared Foundations, I took a screen shot of the wheel off the official AASL website. Being a visual learner, it helps to write when you have the whole concept explained in a well organizer and colorful visual. Although it came ... read more

  • Thing 4: Twitter
    Twitter is the one form of social media that I never quite took the time to understand. Now that I have had some direction and time to explore, I am impressed with the amount of information available. Users add hashtags that organize their tweets into topics. A simple search offers ... read more

  • Thing 24: Google Drawings
    I had a lot of fun playing around with Google Drawings. At first I went through a couple of the examples and tried my hand and creating a planet of my own after watching an instructional video. Afterwards I played around a little bit and tried looking at ways I ... read more

  • Thing 01: Getting Started
    I'm Alex Perry. I am in my 7th year as a Special Education/Mathematics teacher in the district. I currently work at the Leadership Academy. A coworker told me about this program and all of the cool things that it offered, so I decided to check it out. I was drawn ... read more

  • Break Out EDU
    I participated in a Breakout EDU a few months ago at a team meeting.  I enjoyed the experience very much.  It is interesting to see how peoples minds work, while some people try to solve these pragmatically others look outside the box for the solutions, which you need to do ... read more

  • Thing 11: Digital Tattoo and Digital Citizenship
    As I look at tools, resources, and information on the topic of Digital Citizenship, my biggest takeaway in developing my own strategy is that I was to instruct from the perspective of empowering students rather than a perspective of fear.  I found many of the lessons focused on "staying safe", ... read more

  • Thing 26 Media Skills
    Thing 26 Media Skills I was not sure where to start with this project so I first looked at “9 Ways Classroom Photos Can Create Student Connection” Your smartphone may be the secret to classroom community (selfie stick optional). By Jenn Horton on May 22, 2018 I liked her ideas ... read more

  • Thing 26: Media Skills
    I don’t know about any of you, but it seems like I can’t go anywhere without seeing a meme or GIF (pronouned GIF or jif?). My Facebook is completely littered with comical one liners, and I must admit, I chuckle to myself at most of them. My students seem to ... read more

  • Cool Tools E-Book Creation
    I have been working on fine tuning my student’s ability to handle communication breakdowns.  It’s part of life for all of us but happens with much greater frequency to those with hearing loss.   While working with my students today we were having an open discussion about what kinds of things ... read more
