Speaking of a good read, this one by our own Zac Chase and his colleague, Chris Lehmann, is another one not to miss! Going way beyond just how to integrate technology into our classrooms, Building School 2.0 helps us to see what school can become. Chase and Lehmann support a vision for our students and for ourselves that is well within our reach. An added bonus, reading it is a lot like having a conversation with Zac and for those of us who know him, that’s a great thing!
Looking for an engaging way to integrate media into your Language Arts class? This post from Catlin Tucker walks you step by step through designing a thematic art gallery using google art. Not only does this support standards, but it really pushes students to think differently about the integration between art and the printed page.
If you like this, Catlin has recently published a new book with great ideas about using technology to teach literacy standards. It’s a really good read.
