Back to school and Meme's

When I return to school next week a teacher has already contacted me about using Meme's in her classroom.

Back to school and new GAFE updates to share

I have always been an advocate for Tablet/PC's and the ability to provide annotated feedback from teacher/student along with student submitting annotated work.  We are a GAFE school and I have been waiting for a similar feature to become available in docs.

Google has just announced "Write notes on your work" in classroom.  Here is a link for more information or on twitter by following: @GoogleForEdu

Project Based Learning and GAFE

Last year I began explore Project Based Learning (PBL) and integrating with Google Apps and hyperdocs.

I found so many great resources using twitter one was the BIE website - Buck Institute for Education, they are nonprofit organization. BIE shows teachers how to use Project Based Learning in all grade levels and subject areas.  BIE creates, gathers, and shares high-quality PBL instructional practices and products and provides highly effective services to teachers.  I also started following the on twitter at @BIEpbl and have been getting great templates and ideas for mapping project based lessons.

Also there are a collection of great resources below on Project Based Learinig #PBL
Article: Google Apps for Education Enhances Project Based Learning.
Article: Combine Design Thinking with PBL
Here is sample of a hyper doc using in our #GAFEFSU class this summer.

By combining resources from Genius hour, PBL, Hyperdocs, GAFE and the SAMR model, teachers now have a great way to map a project and share it.
