This Luminary Labs article describes projects that were in a contest they had.   They look amazing and awesome, including Smart Sparrow,  which seems to be a learning platform for making online stuff.   It’s free for up to 5 students, too and touts drag and drop for interactivity.   I *think* this is a great way to […]

Day 1 of the Geogebra 2-day workshop in. Lots and lots observed and learned. I remembered from Animation that … trying to follow w/ computer splits my brain and I do better watching, thinking, taking actual notes … and then *doing* stuff later.   Plus much was stuff I already know.

Holy Saturday…. We’re going to have a ‘teacher resource fair’ — a “one-stop event for faculty to learn more about available textbook options and alternatives.  In addition, there could be sessions offered that day for faculty to present how they have used innovative textbook options, and we would also promote the resources available through the […]

… It’s that O-G training… I decided I wanted to incorporate “connecting representations” from the get go, from Jump Street. The link to the Google Doc that has images for number, domino icon and number line representation of the numbers 0 through 10  (yes, zero) lives here.      It’s 4:00 so I shan’t try to upload […]
