Once they tap submit, you are ready to check your reports and then move on with your personal life a little sooner. This app is worth the $9.99. Two lucky attendees will walk away from this session with a free copy of the time-saving app.  Teachers must have an iPad, but students can use any device with internet access to take the tests.

You Wrote a Research Paper...so What? - 513
My research paper units always frustrate me. My students spend two weeks or more working on one assignment, and it is such a letdown when they're done. They're cranky, I'm cranky...yes they earn a grade, but what can they do to share what they have learned? How can the project be more useful and more meaningful? I tried two different presentation methods this year using technology to take the research beyond the classroom. My freshmen researched links between bullying and suicide, then used Animoto to create public service announcements incorporating their research to raise awareness about the issue. My sophomores researched different humanitarians, so I had each of them create a 8.5" x 11" poster for the humanitarian, complete with a QR code that linked to the student's explanation of the humanitarian's work. We displayed the posters in the media center, where anyone could use the QR code to learn about the humanitarians.

The purpose is to connect age groups; infants, toddlers, and preschoolers by their developmentally appropriate skills in physical, social and emotional and intellectual categories. This project has no limitations and makes the student use organizational skills, creativity, concept knowledge, and technological abilities. The end result is a project which can be used beyond the classroom.

Once your account has been created, you can set it so all Shadow Puppets created go to all devices or just save to the device it's made on. It is a quick and easy way to assess that kiddos are reading. I use it for spelling tests each week.

It can be used for reading fluency and possibly projects. In kindergarten we used it for our eLearning days and the assignments saved right onto their devices. Once your account has been created, you can set it so all Shadow Puppets created go to all devices or just save to the device it's made on. It is a quick and easy way to assess that kiddos are reading. I use it for spelling tests each week.

Smore.com provides users with a variety of easy to manipulate templates that engage the reader, are housed on the Internet, and most importantly are very easy to create! Once published, the owner can track the analytics to see how wide the readership becomes along with tracking the number of people who read their creation. Smore provides the author with an internet link that can be Tweeted, posted to Facebook, and sent out with email, Remind 101, or any other communication method you can think of. If teachers are interested in a quick way to grasp the attention of parents and students, would like to get their information widely distributed, and accomplish this quickly, Smore.com is one way to accomplish that. And….if you don’t mind students seeing “kick ass analytics,” it can be used by students over 13.
