Are you looking for ways to infuse technology into your beginning of the school year activities? Then you’ve come to the right place!   Here are a few ways to engage your students with technology and with each other:

word1.  Students can create word clouds to describe themselves.  They can enter words that describe who they are, what they like to do, what they like to read, what they like best about school, and places they would like to visit someday.

2.  Students capadn make a post on a shared classroom wall in response to a question such as: What would you like to learn this year?

linot3.  Students can create a virtual corkboard with photos, video, and text from their summer vacation, about their family, or illustrating what they would like to be when they grow up.

4.  Students can create a flyer advertising their strengths so during the year, students will know which classmates to turn to for help in specific areas.  Who is the best artist, math wiz, problem solver, or proofreader?

blabb5.  Students can upload a photo of themselves and record audio so their photo introduces who they are to the rest of the class.
