    Fun Activity - Back to School Edition - Design a Classroom of Tomorrow




      Believe it or not, the start of a new school year is just around the corner, and co-teaching partners Dyane and Vanessa are setting up their own one room schoolhouse classroom at Technology-Rich School of Tomorrow.  Like many teachers, these two have been attending PD all summer, and they are still having trouble identifying the perfect digital tools and resources they need for their 21st Century Classroom.  They are now asking for your expertise to help fill their digital toolboxes and kick start the school year on the highest note.


      What are some apps that you use that would help Dyane and Vanessa build a 21st Century classroom? What are some Web 2.0 tools or mobile apps that will help them accomplish this goal?  They have included a virtual blueprint of their classroom. Notice the several color-coded leaning areas in their classroom. We need you to first identify the area you want to help them with and then share the tool that you would suggest.  Be sure to share the pros and cons of these tools and how they have helped you in your classroom.

      Please share the following with your post:

      1. App or Web 2.0 Tool Name
      2. Which Area of the Classroom This Tool Would Work Best (Please Refer to our Graphic)
      3. Pros/cons
      4. An Example of How the Tool Can Be Used in the Classroom


      Participate in our 21st Century Classroom creation from August 5 to October 1 to win an awesome tool for your classroom -  The Discovery Veho Microscope
