Sharing exemplars asynchronously/online
is was hard. As much as technology is a tool I use to teach, it isn’t the end goal of learning. When it comes down to doing physics, I like pen and paper. But sharing this was awkward, clunky, or a huge use of paper. Now I can draw (full color!) to my heart’s content, and using Evernote snap pictures with my phone. This creates a unique URL that I can then share with my students through Google classroom that they can access when they are ready to review their work.
Today in Physics we worked on if given data can we build the X vs. T, V vs. T, and A vs. T graphs. The nice thing about being able to scan my notes (via Evernote or the school’s copier) is that I can provide my notes to the students so they can see my work (after we work on it in class and then it’s posted on Google Classroom). My new favorite pen is the Pilot Frixion pens, unlike the horrible erasable pens I had in 4th grade, these are really fantastic. They let me create multi-colored notes that I can fix without whiteout!
