One of the most entertaining and engaging sessions I had the pleasure to attend was “Creating and Collecting Digital Work” with Tammy Worcester and Kevin Honeycutt. Not only were the tools they shared easily applicable to any classroom, their presentation style truly embodied many of the ideals of creativity, play, and value shared in some of the earlier sessions I attended (which will be summarized in a later blog).
Tammy modeled the role of the teacher and Kevin channeled his inner child. The session essentially focused on creating and collecting digital work in various forms (e.g screencasting desktop work, capturing traditional pencil and paper tasks, recording audio products, and transforming digital creations into tangible items). All of the resources shared for the session (and many more) can be found on Tammy’s site.
Glad I sat in the front row for this session – my iPad was able to capture some of the best moments. Grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy!
Truly loved the idea of collecting all of the work in a digital class dropbox created with a Google Form.
One last nugget. Kevin shared a great idea. Create coffee mugs with a QR code hyperlinked to one of your student’s digital delights or a classroom site that is constantly updated with student work – what a great way to start a teacher’s or parent’s morning.
