If only I found this useful tip a few years ago… http://www.mrexcel.com/tip069.shtml. Basically, it teaches you how to make your own magic square using excel! Ahh… now my math mind can rest easy :)
So for the past few days, I have been addicted to a publishing website that my professor shared to the class. It’s called Issuu. It’s just a site where you can publish magazines, documents, pictures, etc. I think it’s a great way to share your work, especially for students to publish their work. Why am I addicted? You may ask. Well, there are SO many published issues that I am so interested in reading and viewing! They’re great! Once I am done reading one magazine, another one grabs my interest and I get sucked into this virtual magazine stand.
Take a look for yourself, but you have been warned.
Need to transport your students to a new location instantly? (Not because their misbehaving of course…)
Well, try TourWrist! It’s a virtual transporter that lets you look at places all around the world in a 360 view. You can take your students to a NBA basketball court in Phoenix, Times Square in New York, or even a Borno Park in Italy.
With the 360 view, it seems like you are practically there, and students can be more interactive and gain a greater understanding of the setting.
My boyfriend introduced me to an amazing program today! It’s called GameSalad and can be found on this link: http://gamesalad.com/.
What is it you may ask? Well, it’s a program that allows you to make your own App! Yes that’s right, your own App that you can customize and create for your own iPhone and iPad.
If I were to use this in the classroom, I would probably use it for project options that my students can take. It would greatly incorporate technology and higher-order learning skills.
I am still learning how to use this program, but so far it is really neat.
I was creating a lesson plan the other day, and I wanted to integrate a fun and interactive game. Then I remembered the site JeopardyLabs that my professor introduced the class. Because of this site, I was able to easily create a fun review game into my lesson. Trust me, it was easy! All you need to do is sign up.
