I am taking a new approach to my blog, as to not feel so pressured to make posts. I think it is time that I really make this blog about what I am seeing here at my school since so many teachers are embracing technology. The posts are going to be more authentic and about #edtech versus all the tips and sites. So here it goes...
This week we completed 2 Mystery Skype sessions. What is Mystery Skype? Check out the presentation I made for teachers! Or go to the BLOG POST I made on it last year!
Mrs. Woods' class connected with Meredith, New Hampshire and Mr. Reichard's class connected with Ottawa, Ontario. So much fun!
Mrs. Woods' class did a great job of narrowing their state down to New Hampshire by asking some great questions. Mr. Reichard's class was able to learn their school was in the province of Ontario by learning whether it was surrounded by water or not. Then they worked to narrow their city to Ottawa. We then took the opportunity in both classes to use Google Maps to explore the area we Skyped with each day. Such a great opportunity!
