Today is the last day of the conference. My workshop today is Engaging Students with Engaging Tasks. Mike Muir is the presenter.
The great thing about today’s workshop is that technology is not a requirement.
Here’s the link to the resources we’re using today. Scroll down to Motivating Students with Engaging Tasks.
P.S. If you teach middle school, Mike is a member of the Association for Middle Level Education. Membership is FREE. Consider joining.
Yesterday, I attended The Fab Four- four fabulous (and easy) video presentation projects you can have your students complete. Here’s my group’s paper slide show.
Today is the 3rd day of the ICE Conference. I am learning four ways to create video projects. David Fisher is the presenter. More information to come.
I have to select a workshop for this afternoon. I’m looking at:
1. Tech Tools
2. Math with Greg Tang
3. SMART tools
Stay tuned for updates from today’s activities.
