I am getting excited about presenting at Schools of the Future in November. I am in the beginning stages of crating my presentation. The focus of my presentation will using technology to enhance your class's storytelling adventures. This past school year my class became super proficient in "publishing" their finished writing pieces in the iPad app Explain Everything. They would then import those stories to their Kidblog! It truly was a great experience to see just how capable kids have become with operating technology. Below are some videos of my student's explaining the process. It is super cool to hear them teach us! Writer's Workshop in our class become super interactive and our new found "publishing" technique really encourages the children to take ownership of their writing!
