Every good teacher needs a good pop talk once and a while. This video never gets old!
We have been using this interactive smart board since September and we love it so much. The sad news is that recently our flash drive containing the Mimio software has corrupted and we have been without for more than 2 weeks. We have been using other forms of technology in place of it such as the LCD and the Point of View Document Camera but its not the same. I have put in a tech request so hopefully we get a new one soon.
The link below is some information for parents wondering about what exactly a Mimeo is :)
As many of you know, I recently attended FETC in Orlando, Florida. I had an amazing time and learned so much. I have been busy sharing many new programs, Apps and ideas learned at the conference. The presentations and presenters at FETC were amazing. They were specialized in their area and were engaging and motivating. If you are interested in checking out some of the presentations FETC 2015 has posted many of them online. Check out the link below!
I have also put together a brief presentation to share with my Technology Cohort about my WOW moments from conference. if you are interested in checking that out you can view it by clicking on the link below
Have you ever found yourself searching for the perfect lesson or activity for you class ? i know i have and their is a solution.
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/ is a valuable website in which teachers can create an account and download lesson plans, activities, resources, printables, classroom posters and more. There are many resources that are FREE and there is also an option to purchase more if you would like to. I recently purchased a Science Unit on Position and Motion. I paid $1.99 for the entire unit. Talk about easy planning. Obviously i wont use everything in the unit and some things will need to be adapted but it makes planning so much easier.
Also, there is an option where you can add things to your wishlist for later on. There also is a feature that records what you have bought or downloaded for free. That way when can look back from year to year.
The search site is easy to use. You literally just post exactly what you are looking for and voila... done!
