Here’s a summary of my exciting day on February 1, 2012

Frank LaBanca visited Sandy Hook School in Newtown for digital learning day.  There he joined a fourth grade and second grade class.  Using iPod touches and the StoryKit app, Frank, Ted Varga, teacher, and the fourth grade students created riddles that modeled the literary device personification.  Students selected an inanimate object in the room to personify.  Some examples of their work include:

sample | sample | sample | sample | sample

Frank also visited second grade teacher Robin Walker’s class.  Using the same app, students recorded observations of growth patterns of their Wisconsin Fast Plants that they are growing as part of a science unit.  Some examples include:

    Sounds like this was a great day in the classroom(s)!
    Incorporating technology is always a great way to engage students.
    I liked the cross subject content used with the 4th graders, but I was really impressed with the insertion of audio in the 2nd grade project! Both exercises show that students can learn all day long (outside the classroom) and that by using technology they can document and share their learning!
