Students in Mrs. Self’s class are learning about the Constitution in a variety of individualized project assignments using their iPads or laptops.  Some are playing educational games, some are watching flipped lectures, and others are creating content-themed amusement parks…just to give a taste of some of their choices.

Chemistry students in my class began with a Socrative Entry Ticket with questions from yesterday's lesson/last night's homework for reinforcement. Next, they used their devices to search for a webpage or video that would explain the current concept. They posted the unique URL they chose on the class Edmodo page for collaboration. Finally, we used YouTube to safely view the violent reaction between sodium metal & chlorine gas to produce benign sodium chloride (table salt). After a short, traditional lesson at the white board, I sent a virtual practice sheet to students.

Good morning, everyone.  My 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th period Finance Academy classes are practicing interviewing skills today.  They will be out and about with their partner (an iPads) taking each other’s video as they answer “behavioral interview questions”.  I’ve instructed them to be quiet in the hallway.  Most of them look really nice and sharp in their business/business casual attire.  J

Education and Training classes took a Unit test today using the zipgrade answer forms. Zipgrade  allows you to Grade Tests With Your iPhone or IPad. ZipGrade turns your iPhone or iPad into a scanning and grading machine. You can grade tests and then email results right to students the same day! Plus do an item analysis as well.

Reading students are using various forms of technology: desktop website, smart phone app, iPad app of quizlet to practice this week's vocabulary words.  Quizlet appeals to the visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners. 


From the iPads of Eric Hollis and Nick Smith...

This is a lab we’ve done in years past using paper but Nick decided after the professional development on google drive that we could try this and it has worked great.  So all the credit for this goes to him.

Last week our students made instructional videos on their iPad describing how to measure bones.  Coach smith took the best videos and posted those on the hoover forensics website.


This week students are making bone measurements using those videos for instruction.  Measurements of individual bones can give a forensic anthropologists an idea of the race, gender and approximate height of a suspect/victim if bones are recovered from a crime scene. 

 
Students are recording these measurements on a template that was posted on the website by opening them in notability and filling in information.

Once completed, students will share their work to the teacher via google drive.

In AP psychology we are studying the various theories of intelligence. We answered a Journal question in our Max journal app. We had a great class discussion about nature vs. Nature and intelligence and also discussed what is IQ and how do we measure it . We took a multiple intelligence test ( which reflected the contemporary approach of IQ) in our journal. Each student was able to see what their intelligences were! 
Then we used an APP called IQ test ( which reflected the traditional approach to IQ testing). Student tested their analytic skills using this app.

Here is a link to one of my AP Spanish students-Dailey Wilson. Their assignment was to create an IMOVIE showing the difference between Consumerism and Modernism in the target language. It was awesome and got the point.

We are creating presentations using Educreations to formulate a project that identifies one of the motifs from Of Mice and Men.




From the iPad of Anita Lewis...

Today my class did a mini project. First they had to partner up to answer questions from yesterday’s reading and class discussion (they used their iPads to access the reading pdf and my PowerPoint notes), then they had to create a visual board that represents key concepts of the reading section, using an app called “Curator”. It works a bit like little Pinterest boards. The students had fun with it, and they were backing up their knowledge of the reading concepts with visual concepts.

In my class today, we had a quiz that requires longer amounts of time for some students to complete.  Having the iPads (or rather any device), allows students to work at their own pace for the quiz and the go ahead with the new material after they have finished.  If you will notice in the picture, some students are still working on the quiz and others have in earphones, watching, listening, and taking notes off an educreations video that I created on new material.  I love educreations videos because it allows students to watch, rewatch, pause, speed up - how they learn material.  Differentiation is HARD to do in a classroom, but technology makes it so much easier to meet the individual needs of all my students.
