History Geek Teacher Vlog 012 - My Favorite Photos of 2016 Part 1 of 2

Education as a window...

I was at school walking to get in my steps - goal of 10,000 steps a day, not exactly running a 5K every day but it is a good daily goal for me right now - and I took a picture of the sunset through the window of hallway at Discovery Middle School.  I added an educational quote and thought it came up looking pretty good.

Google Photos - 2016 Kansas City Google Summit

I love taking photos! When you take a lot of photos organization is important.  Google Photos is one of my favorite Google products because it allows me to organize, edit and share my photos.

This session was shared at the 2016 Kanas City Google Summit on October 30, 2016.  Please access this link to see my handouts and resources.

History Geek Teacher Vlog #2 - Creating Visual Stories

I started a vlog last spring called "The History Geek Teacher" as a platform to share ideas related to education, technology and history.  As I type this in late September 2016 there are a total of 9 episodes.  I realized that I had not yet shared any on the vlog so over the next couple of days I thought I would post several of the videos specifically related to best practices in the classroom.

You can subscribe to my History Geek Teacher Vlog YouTube channel here so that you don't miss any new episodes.

Episode #2 described a project I call "Visual Stories".
