Design Your Own Digital Planbook

Design Your Own Digital Planbook

I currently use Planboard as my digital planbook and it works fantastically especially for leaving sub plans. However, I wanted to be able to customize it more to fit my schedule and it is set-up in sections which is not very elementary friendly. In addition, its week and month view still need work for it is hard to view on different devices. I do love that you can create units and have access to your Google Drive but the set-up…

K-2 Really Can Too!

K-2 Really Can Too!

As a teacher, trainer, and presenter, I embrace what our primary teachers do for their young students. I know sometimes I think: what could those younger students do? How could they create and demonstrate their learning? How can I help to support those teachers? When I found out about #K2CanToo conference, I noticed that we, TechFairies, had missed the deadline to submit our sessions. Yet, this opportunity would not go unnoticed. So I printed the event flyer and distributed to…

This way to the NEW TechFairies site!

This way to the NEW TechFairies site!

Welcome to our new site! I blame Meagan Kelly! Her site, I-Heart-EDU, is sharp, clean, and easy to use. I reached out to her and informed her that I wanted to have all our resources, presentations, and blog¬†posts to be featured on ONE site. I have always been a fan of free, but MO and I (at least, I think MO wants that…I’ll find out when she wakes up) want a more professional looking site for all our edtech adventures!…

Go GEO!

Go GEO!

So this is pretty exciting! I was “courted” (they contacted little ol’ ME!) by the Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL) to write an article for their online journal. It’s now been published and sent out to its members via email, but I received *my* final copy to share, so here it is! (Click on the image to get the full article.) Thank you to the ACEL for this opportunity and I look forward to working with the wonderful Annie…

The Assessment Cycle – and TIME; we’re NONSTOP!

The Assessment Cycle – and TIME; we’re NONSTOP!

So I waited the dreaded 60 days, re-took the Level 2 Google Certificated Educator exam and PASSED! Hooray! This time was just as stressful, if not more, than the last since a *fail* here would have, seriously, crushed me. But, I knew what I knew and I was sure that if I didn’t freak myself out and linger too long on any of the multiple-choice questions (I have always HATED multiple choice; I try to out-think the exam), I would…

3 Reasons to Return: Confessions of a #gafesummit Summit Junkie

Read MO’s blog post featured on the EdTechTeam Website! 3 Reasons to Return: Confessions of a GAFE Summit Junkie The most interesting thing about being a life-long learner, to me, is that even after 30 years of teaching, I am never satiated. I am never stagnant. I MUST know more, and often to the detriment of my need for sleep, I feel like I must know everything. Before he passed, my father asked me “How do you know all of…
