I thought I'd follow up on last week's post and try to keep the momentum going! As part of of my aspiration to become more involved with a global ed tech community I signed up for a MOOC https://courses.mooc-ed.org/dlt3/preview
I've also been reflecting on some of the successes I've had integrating technology this year.
One app I was introduced to and have used with success both with a summer school class and a student I have been tutoring is called Frolyc. https://www.frolyc.com/ This app allows me to differentiate instruction and easily design a mini lesson to use with a small group or individual student. Recently I used the app with a 5th grade student I've been tutoring. Using the umbrella of reading comprehension I broke the activity into three parts. First, the student had to read a passage about Cross-Training. Next, he answered a couple of open ended comprehension questions. To end the activity he drew and labeled activities he'd include in a cross-training program for himself.
Well that's two posts! Here's to a 3rd!
