Teaching in a 1:1 classroom
by Brianna Davis - Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 3:30 PM

I find that teaching civic education is more interesting now that I have 1:1 devices. The ability to find information is amazing,but I struggle with how to engage students in the tough conversations.  I recently held a structured academic conversation on Gun Control, but students were not into it.  The issue of how to prepare came up and what the next steps should be.  I now reach out to the civic education network - what should happen now?  We have google docs and the ability to present.  WHere do I go from here?

Constiutitional Convention Tech activity

I'm having an observation next week from our district's consulting firm and they want to see the use of our 1:1 technology in the classroom.  I am teaching the Constitutional Convention that day and am looking for an engaging lesson that involves technology.  Any ideas??
