MACUL was a really good experience! I was completely amazed at what was out there in the world of technology. There are so many opportunities to use technology in any subject in the classroom. I'm really excited and completely overwhelmed to go back to the classroom and start using some of the things that I picked up there.
I started to learn more about the online formative assessment tools (kahoot, quizizz.com, socrative.com, Google Forms, etc.). I'm hoping to utilize more of this in my classroom in the next few weeks.
One session that I really liked was an elementary school teacher sharing all her tech ideas that she uses in her classroom. There was so much that she was doing with technology, it was completely overwhelming. But she did a great job reassuring everyone that this took her years to put together, doing one thing at a time. If you'd like the list, please let me know.
I've been able to work with Google Classroom, having the students use the Q and A feature successfully.
Overall, it was a great experience! I was very thankful to have the chance to attend. Thank you again to the tech department for all their help and support! ~Todd Heerlyn -3rd Grade, Moorsbridge.
