Coding and Creating Idea
The other day I attended a training session and our group choose this video to watch (we had a list and this was the one that seemed the most interesting to us). I really got sucked into it primarily because of the science element (using conductors).
The students used a device called a Makey Makey (which I hadn't heard of). Someone in our group had used them before and said they were really cool. I liked how they tied the use of them into learning about conductors and insulators AND coding (pretty ambitious).
I started this blog many years ago as a classroom science teacher with the express purpose of sharing notebooking ideas with other educators. I have since moved into a technology coach position within our district so this site has morphed into a general teaching blog. Basically anything that I see or do in schools that I think is pretty cool gets highlighted here. If you are visiting to find notebooking information please look at my earlier posts. I have tried to label all my posts so information is easier to find...so, when in doubt look at the labels. As always, if you have any question please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help!
