I first want to say that I’m sorry I’ve been a bit absent from blogging on this site. I have focused more on my personal blog/website and have put this one on the back burner. I will do a better job from now until the end of the year.
My students have been really excited using a new assessment tool and game in my classroom…Kahoot. It is a web based gaming system teachers can use to gather survey data or quiz students on material taught and so much more. I recently got my hands on a projector so I am able to project the questions and answer choices on my white board and the students use the iPads the ELL Department purchased to submit their answers. They love using the technology and don’t even realize they are learning too!
I have also been able to use interactive white board games and learning tools since I won an Ipevo Interactive Whiteboard System at EdCampColumbus in March. Students use a little “pen” to submit the answers or solution and the computers moves to the next situation or game. It is great fun and they students love getting up and using our new tool. They also love making shadow animals with their little hands.
It is hard to believe that it’s almost May…our school year has flown by but we have learned a lot! Let’s buckle down as we wind down this fabulous school year.
