I am currently working on putting together a March Madness book tournament for our elementary and middle schools. There will be 8 books that battle for the championship. Students will be reviewing the books on the morning announcements and then voting on which book is better. I'm in the process of creating a webpage to hold the competition and show the videos/voting results. I'll add details as those parts are finished. So stay tuned...!
I am also working on a game-based role-playing game for teaching strategies. Each strategy set will have it's own web page. I think it is going to be very complicated, and very challenging. Hopefully it will work out. If it doesn't work out, I will have learned a lot about setting up a role-playing webquest! I will post those webpages up on my blog as I get a little further along the process.
The hardest part of this class is going to be setting up an action plan for technology implementation as I don't have much control over the school's tech plans. I can certainly create plans, generate ideas, and try and convince everyone, but sometimes getting teachers to use a certain technology is like herding cats.
Please feel free to browse the other sections as I have started to put resources up. My problem is going to be picking just a few as there are so many great tools/pages out there. Let me know what you think of those resources or feel free to comment about anything on the website. I'd love to hear from you!
Hey! Make sure and check out the free webinar on March, 13th. http://all4ed.org/webinar-event/mar-5-2015/ sounds like it should be interesting with a pretty good panel.
