"Come on, baby, let's do the twist!"

via Technology Tidbits by Twyla Felty

Getting tired of the same old apps and “projects”? If you need a fresh approach, try using an app you love in a new way. Just give it a “twist”! 

Here is an easy way to get started in just three steps:

  • Take an app you already love and use personally 
  • Ask: how can students “show what they know” by using this app in class?
  • Then actually try it! (This is sometimes the obvious step that teachers are missing.)

In this example, a teacher took Pic Collage ,and students created a collage of pictures that showed different ways to count money. 

Now, let your creative mind sing and dance! What could your students do with Pic Collage?

What’s your favorite app? 

Come on, and give it a “twist”. and share with your students!
As the song goes…”Take me by my little hand and go like this”!

Thanks to a great teacher, Megan Felty, for sharing her student work with the world. 

And yes, I am biased since she is my daughter! You can visit Mrs. Felty’s 1st grade class through her classroom blog.
