Simple Technology for Engaged Learning


You know it is sometimes overwhelming with all the apps out there, but sometimes all you need is a camera on a device. 

In math, we are learning about lines, line segments, parallel, intersecting...the whole bit. Our Everyday Math workbook wanted the kids to look around the room for examples of those terms. So, instead, we grabbed our devices and started snapping pictures. The kids then gathered back together to share the real-life items they found that had parallel line segments. Even if we had stopped there, it would've been a good learning experience.

However, we went further with the Seesaw Learning Journal app. 

  1. Kids choose a picture to use.
  2. They upload it to Seesaw.
  3. Then, use a writing/recording tool to explain their learning.
