It's been a busy semester...
I started teaching at a different school, in a different district, in a different grade AND I am continuing my course work towards my school librarian certification. Who needs sleep...?
My work for my librarian classes is really forcing me to step out of my comfort zone and to think differently about education and technology. One recent project I worked on required me to teach 3 applications using screen recording software. The idea behind the project is that as a librarian I should show leadership in technology and I should be able to provide professional development that is easily accessible for the teachers on my campus.
One of the applications I chose was Picktochart. Picktochart is a program that helps you to create really beautiful posters, presentations and info graphics. And, it is really easy to use. After playing with it for a bit, I found lots of ways that you could utilize it in your classroom to share visual information with your students. And, it is also easy enough that most of your students could use it as well to share their work.
This project was a challenge! I'm hoping for 2 results from it though:
1. I help teachers use new applications meaningfully, and
2. The more videos like this that I make, the easier they will get!
So, without further ado, I introduce to you, Piktochart
