We wrapped up our lab safety videos and the kids did a great job. I couldn't be more proud of what they did. We were so limited by technology this week-I actually had none in my classroom today.... The kids were to film on their own devices, if they were wiling, and then do the best that they could with the revising and editing parts by using an ap to put it all together. The biggest drawback has been the ability to share them with me via email The best plan for sharing it appears is them putting them on a youtube channel. So, we are working on getting that going.
I am excited to share them next week. We also had one group that decided to make theirs bilingual. I really, really can't wait to see that and share it with you.
Another new thing that we started is allowing the kids to have a say in the making of their rubrics. They went into knowing their driving question and problem statement and knows and need to knows. They were sure about anything else. They created the standards and were pretty creative. I believe that it gives the students ownership in their own learning. They were to put into the rubric the things which they thought were important to them on projects. It was a fun process-even for me.
This was a tough week because of the technology. I am hoping that in week 3 things will get resolved. I want to share with my students and share my students work with the world. GET READY FOR GREATNESS!!!!
