Engage Your Students in the Creative Process:
I often help my students to develop metacognitive skills by asking them to create their own graphic organizers or manuals that can guide them through the sequence of steps required to complete an activity. What's more, when they are apart of the creative process, I find that they are more engaged as well as apt to use and share the resources.
Prezi Makes Learning Fun and Memorable:
Many of our students are masters on computers, and they love to learn about new technologies that can make learning both memorable and fun. Prezi is an online site that allows anyone to create engaging and dynamic presentations! They have some wonderful templates, or you can just create your own. It's easy to learn and whenever I need help, there is a quick and simple video to answer my questions. Just this week, I've had fun creating some presentations that I have made free to the public.
