Banishing the Broken Record: How PowToon saved the day

Today I was inispired by Heidi Neltner’s #TLChat post about how she uses PowToon:  Starting off the School Year with a Pow

Like Heidi, I discovered PowToon last year, but hadn’t used the site at all. To start off this school year, I brainstormed all of the tips that I seem to say over…and over…and over…and over. Instead of sounding like a broken record, I created “Upper School Technology 101.” When I showed it to our 4th-6th grade classes, they students actually applauded. (A much better reaction than rolling their eyes when I walk away.) I can’t wait to use PowToon with students.

    Love the use of the hand tool! And the great thing about making this into a video, is you can always send students back to it, when they start to forget those critical tips you gave them:)

    It was fabulous, because I played it for students with their classroom teachers present…and was able to subtly remind teachers of our expectations, too! (Yes, students DO have to cite pictures. Yes, students ARE expected to get their missed homework from specialists.) #SubliminalMessages
