This past summer I had the privilege of sharing a three minute showcase with my Global ADE colleagues on Making Thinking Visible: The Power of Voice. Here is a copy of that presentation.
I am a K-4 teacher with the Vancouver School District (formerly teaching in Surrey Schools). With 30+ years of experience and a bunch of improvements along the way, I still have so much more to learn. This blog is a way to help me process and share all that I'm discovering on my quest to be the best educator I can be.

Very impressive! I teach grade 1 on the island. I just found your blog and am very excited to learn from you:)ReplyDelete
And like wise I'm excited to learn from you too! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I am excited to get this school year on the road. :-)Delete
Love your ideas! What app did your students use to demonstrate their understanding of solid figures? Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
While there are many apps that can be used to add voice to digital and non digital work my students go to app is Draw and Tell by Duck Duck Moose. It's very early years friendly. When you touch the screen as you record the blue dot appears.Delete
I just realized there were two different solids examples. The first was collection of photos from the iPad camera, put into skitch to label her images, then each image was put into draw and tell to add her voice and the pointer, and finally the images with voice/pointer added were put together to create the movie in iMovie. The second example is just a photo of her work, uploaded to Draw and Tell, and talked about there. I hope this helps. KarenDelete
