ACTEM 2014

I thought a word cloud of my notes from ACTEM would be a good visual representation of the conference.  I love ACTEM because I always find the solution to a problem, or discover a new idea that I can use right away, or find another educator that I can add to my PLN.  This year […]

Digital Storytelling: Campfires In Cyberspace

This presentation started with an overview of how human beings have always told stories; as a way to instruct youth, as a way to teach skills, and to maintain history and culture, before then moving into a discussion of how this is changing.  With the ease with which new technologies allow the capture and presentation […]

TCEA Session: QR Codes for Audio Assessment

I attended a session today that was using QR codes as a method of allowing students to use an audio recording of a test rather than needing a teacher to read to them. This idea of QR codes with audio can be applied to all subjects at every level. An Art teacher might use this […]

“Becoming Close Readers of Complex Text EL Institute”

Back in November, I went to “Becoming Close Readers of Complex Text EL Institute” in Atlanta, Georgia. The purpose of this institute was to model “Close Reading,” explain why it is important and demonstrate how to select appropriate complex texts for specific purposes. Close reading is when many different strategies are used to understand chunks […]

American Association of School Librarians National Conference
