Students in Jenni Stansell’s Science class at AMS, are developing Google Sites that address solutions for tomorrow’s environmental challenges. Mrs. Stansell’s students are completing this task in conjunction with the 2017 TAG-ED Middle School Webchallenge, a STEM challenge that  focuses on the integration of technology and curriculum.

Twitter, Tweet, Twitter Bird, ...

Twitter is an excellent medium for learning from others or sharing the great things going on in your classroom or school within the Floyd County PLN or with educators across the country.  

Check out the link below to see Mr. Carvajal’s class at MMS doing a Google Hangout with Cat Flippen.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, why not integrate some SAMR into the experience. Just to remind you SAMR stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The idea of SAMR is to move learning to the Redefinition stage because tech allows for the creation of new things.

This site has some GREAT SAMR lessons for any grade level for Valentine’s Day. There are no tech, low tech, and high tech options available. Get to making some Valentines!
