So, what will my blog be about? My blog will be about what I think has been my best reflection or find of the week. This might be a great teaching tip; but it could also be a great tip concerning North Dakota or cooking a great casserole. No matter how much we embrace technology, I believe it is also important to reflect on simpler times and enjoy a great cup of Norwegian egg drop coffee or something like that. Take care and enjoy the week.
My favorite podcast:
Teaching with SmartBoard. These guys are awesome. Take twenty minutes out of your day and get a great SMARTBoard Tip. Their jokes are a little lame; but their teaching pedagogy will help you transform what you do with your SMARTBoard. You can find their podcasts through the itunes store or you can go to their website at: http://teachingwithsmartboard.com/
My favorite site:
This is a great site that posts single websites at a time. I found an animated version of the Gettysburg Address here a couple of weeks ago. It was awesome and it would hit home with our digital learners.
This app is great for the preschool set. The game has preschoolers listening to sounds and identifying the correct letter. Our four year old loves this. Go to appsinmypocket.com for more 21st century apps for preschoolers.
Crayon Physics Deluxe
This is an awesome app for a variety of learners. The skill level can be very basic and challenging for our four year old; but it is savvy enough and challenging enough that our 21 year old likes to play it too.
