In a previous post I covered how to make a stencil out of silhouettes but now lets take a look at how to make a stencil out of pretty much any drawing, including hand drawn creations from your kiddos!
Student voice and student choice sound amazing but what does that mean exactly? Student choice should be where students decide what they learn but also should be for them to decide how they present what they have learned. Here are a few choices that allow students to express themselves in different ways and with a brief overview. I'll cover these in more detail in the next few days or you can email me at email@example.com and we can get the ball rolling!
An online based video editor that works great with Chromebooks, WeVideo can be upgraded annually to allow students access to all the bells and whistles. It can be upgraded to 34 seats or more for a little more than $200. If that is too much for your school or district, don't worry because students can keep a free account forever! It will limit their recording time but can be used over and over as long as projects are deleted. Students can present their understanding by recording video, doing a voice over or as a compliment to a live demonstration.
With a new interface and more streamlined than before, Google sites will allow students to create a website by dragging and dropping components. They can create new pages, link from page to page, embed media and more. Students can link ideas that are interconnected via web pages and for some students this may be an easier option than to just type out an essay. Click the link below to go the new Google sites page.
