Click on the image above to watch and listen to a book review that Jenny Knox and I created using Haiku Deck as a presentation tool. We used Screencastomatic to record.
2 thumbs way up!! This book was truly a game changer for me, not only with my research design, but as a veteran teacher I changed some of my practices the very next day. It is the largest evidence based research project in education that clearly shows what are and are not best practices. There were more than a few eye-openers in there...It would be a wonderful book to use as a shared professional reading with the entire staff. For a quicker look, download the chapter summary below!

This is a very easy read and describes how to create powerful visual design that help students learn.
Student Presentation Tools
Popplet is one of my favorite digital mind mapping tools. Very simple and intuitive for kids to use with very little direction. It is a great image to project final work for an oral presentation instead of kids reading boring notes! There is also an iPad app that I haven't explored yet.
Are you and your students bored with the same old Google Slides templates? This site has tons of great free visually appealing templates! Click on the image above to check them out.
