I recently learned about a new website called Tract, and I am excited….I’m really, REALLY excited! Curious about the name, I looked up the word Tract and found this definition:
Tract: an area of indefinite extent, typically a large one.
Oooh, that sounds like a fun place where I’d want to play and […]
I stated this fun little edtech toilet training trend called “Learning in the Loo” many years ago. Back in 2004-2008, I taught 5th grade Social Studies. I started creating these Learning in the Loo posters for my students as a kind of study guide before our big benchmark tests. As you can imagine, […]
I looooveee being organized and continue to try to out-do myself in ways that make me most efficient, structured, mindful, and functional. Do you know what I mean? How do you organize your to-do list and all the related tasks associated with it? How do you schedule yourself and make sure that all the things […]
As a Technology Integration Specialist, I’m always looking for new fun ways to spice up professional development (PD). I’ve been using Kumospace for a few months now, and I am REALLY enjoying it! Even more importantly, I’ve seen a positive uptick in the amount of people who attend even my optional PD sessions!
I felt the madness a little early this year…and BOY, did I go all out! For the past few months, I’ve been taking more time for me, and it’s seriously reignited my creative spirit. I’m so happy when I’m more of a creator than a consumer, and it truly brings me joy to think of […]
My dad is 88. My mom is 83. They live 1,000 miles from me. I’m blessed to be able to travel to Florida to see them several times each year, but it’s never enough. I guess we can all say that about time with our parents, right? Mom has some pretty significant health issues now […]
My #OneWord 2021 is Reclamation. That’s right – I have every intention of being intentional about reclaiming. Like every other year, the word takes on multiple meanings as it applies to different aspects of my life….and so I blog to kind of put it all out there for myself, and anyone else who might wonder […]
You’re all invited! 🥳
As the creator of #Fliphunt, when the Coronavirus threw the world into lockdown last spring and schools started scrambling to figure out how to teach students remotely, I knew that it was time to create a unique, never-before-done, […]
Like most of you, I’m pinching pennies these days. But I’m still an educator, and I still get excited about things I find that might help me teach and make my teaching/learning spaces more exciting. In the past week, I bought four things “on the cheap” that I wanted to share with you because I […]
These days, everyone is talking about “self care”. With the world in a big ol’ state of crazy, the news, the virus, and work days that often go 12 hours or more, we need to keep reminding each other to slow down and just breathe. Often when I finally get done “edtech-ing” for the day, […]
If the Bitmoji Classroom craze has taught us anything, it’s that you can do all sorts of creative things by adding hyperlinks to objects. I’ve seen teachers create really fun “all about me” assignments with room creations, locker decorating, door decorating, and even hydroflask decorating challenges for their students. If you’ve tried any of these, […]
