Devotion

What’s So Good About Good Friday? As we begin to examine ourselves in Lent watch this video to see how words, order, color, and music can tell the story. How could your learners tell the story of Good Friday?

Holy Week Devotion

As we follow Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, let’s each take one story and share it multi-modally. Sign your name by one story on this collaborative document and each select a different tech tool to use to tell your story and write it on the sheet too. Create your project, save and get a link, then embed the link in the name of the tech tool on the collaborative document by highlighting the tool then clicking on the chain link in the toolbar and inserting the link to your project. You can find the verses at: Biblegateway.com

  • Palm Sunday (Matthew 21:1-17)

  • Jesus anointed by Mary in Simon’s House at Bethany-Tuesday: (Matthew 26:6-13)

  • Preparation for the Passover-Tuesday night: (Luke 22:7-16, 24-30)

  • Jesus washes the Apostles’ feet to teach them humility-Thursday night: (John 13:1-20)

  • Jesus opens his heart to the disciples about his departure-Thursday night: (John 14-16)

  • Jesus’ intercessory prayer near Gethsemane-Thursday night: (John 17)

  • Betrayal, arrest and trial-Friday morning: (Matthew 26:47-27:30)

  • Jesus crucified on the cross-Friday: (Luke 23:33-46)

Review

  1. In October, we shared ways in which TEC21 facilitators and teachers connect online to further build and strengthen their professional learning networks. With the start of the second semester, what a great time to reflect on the benefits of being able to gather together for these monthly sessions to be trained, equipped, encouraged and supported. We hope the relationships that are being built will continue to be a blessing to your teaching ministry for many years to come! #LutheranSchoolsThrive

Here are some ways TEC21 facilitators and teachers connect online to further build and strengthen their professional learning network:

Twitter: Follow @TEC21_LuthEd the facilitators and many other educators who have embraced this powerful communication tool. Follow and use these hashtags #TEC21lcms & #LuthEd when tweeting!

Facebook Group: Engage with TEC21 Educators going all the way back to “Season 1” to ask questions and share ideas to support one another.

Facebook: Please help us get the word out to as many teachers as possible about the TEC21 Workshop Program by “Liking” us on the TEC21 Facebook Page!

Pinterest: Pin along with hundreds of other teaches on the shared board TEC21’s collaborative board!  Select this link to be added as a collaborator – https://pin.it/4b89BOM.

Instagram: Follow TEC_21 so you can enjoy the fun pics taken at our workshop centers from year to year.

2. Have you made any New Year’s Professional Growth Resolutions? They might come in handy for “Celebration Day” in May. Share with the group or the person next to you. Maybe you can become an accountability partner with someone to help each other meet your goal. Do you remember the working definitions for short- and long-term goals we shared with you back in September?

  • SHORT-TERM – Some sort of technology integrating lesson or activity you want to do with your students THIS MONTH.
  • LONG-TERM – A major change in the way you teach or manage your classroom. “I want to do less of THAT and more of THIS.” It could include a blog, a website used for flipping your classroom, going paperless with Google Docs, using digital portfolios for student work, integrating project based learning using a specific tool or tools. There are many possibilities. Think of something you’ve seen or heard about that makes you “spark” and think, “Yeah! I want to do more of THAT!”

Goals

1. Discover the educational value of student-created video activities.

2. Explore video creation tools and resources to use with your students.

3. Design a student-centered project or assessment involving the use of video.

4. Be a resource to another teacher by sharing with them a digital tool, a resource, a learning activity, or an assessment strategy you learned about at today’s workshop.

Video Creation

Tips on Making Educational Videos
Screencasting
After looking at a variety of videos students can make,  create a video of any type you would like and add the link to our collaborative document. 

Here is an Educreations screencast that teaches the process of making a screencast and the importance of keeping the length short. Educreations is both an iPad app and a website so works on all devices.

Video Editing

Salmon Khan TED Talk Let’s Use Video to Reinvent Education Above I used EdPuzzle to crop the video from 20 minutes to 1 min. 40 seconds EdPuzzle Sample. You can also add video notes or a quiz. How could you see using a Flipped Classroom approach in your classroom?

Flipping the Classroom

This video was created to show you how easy it is to FLIP the classroom. You may have heard of this as a Flipped Classroom, Flipped Learning, or maybe reverse instruction.

Digital Tools & Resources

You will select one of the Ecoregions below and create an informative presentation about it that summarizes the information you have learned this six weeks. Your Task: Describe your ecoregion and the biodiversity that makes it up. What threats does this ecosystem face and are there any mitigation strategies that could be taken? Includes questions to guide research, presentation options, and rubric. Could be done individually or collaboratively.

Ziteboard.

Virtual Whiteboard that lets you draw and add sticky notes to type on for free. Paid version allows you to insert images, PDFs, and mp3’s. Display in a tab while you teach using Zoom, then use the drawing tool to comment as you teach. Collaborative feature to invite student input in real time with paid version. Also check out AWWapp. A Whiteboard App. Paid but allows you to type directly on the board. Works well with Zoom. Can create before class, then share the link so all students can add to the board in real time.


Wide Open School

Wide Open School. Experiment with science projects. Explore nature and space. Free STEM projects.


Secondary Science Virtual Labs

A great selection of free virtual labs for biology, chemistry, physics, ecology, cells, and more. You will find games, virtual labs, dissections, simulations, handouts, and much more. Check out PhET Interactive Simulations.


Free Virtual Science Labs and Dissections

We all know the value of hands-on learning, but sometimes providing science labs and dissections can be challenging, especially for remote learners. The equipment and supplies can be expensive or hard to find. Virtual labs and dissections may be a good option for you. Virtual dissections can also be a good alternative for those who have moral concerns about dissecting animals. Check out several free resources here.


PlayPosit

PlayPosit is an interactive video you can give students to engage them in answering questions while they watch the video. Interactive video is…three times as effective as standard video – learners explore and apply new material at their own pace in a digital setting. It offers accountable tracking of viewing, creates and assigns impactful video experiences, enriches your flipped classroom, and streamlines tedious grading. There is a cost. Compare it to EdPuzzle to see if the free tool can do what you need.


Green Screen by Do Ink

The #1 Green Screen app for the iPad and iPhone in Education is also a 2019 Winner of the Best Apps for Teaching and Learning by the AASL (American Association of School Librarians). Classroom-tested by kids and teachers, this app emphasizes ease-of-use and simplicity while still enabling fantastic results. With Green Screen by Do Ink, you can tell a story, explain an idea, and express yourself in truly creative and unique ways. Watch this video to see how kids can use this app to make videos using green screen.


TEC21 Challenges

  1. Digital: Apply what you learned today by designing a lesson, a student project or an assessment strategy involving the use of video.
  1. Social: Post to the TEC21 Educators Group on Facebook. It can be a comment, an answer to someone’s question, a resource, a picture of you and your students or a link to a completed project your students created.
  2. Spiritual: Be a resource to another teacher on your faculty by sharing with them a digital tool, a resource, a learning activity, or an assessment strategy you learned about at today’s workshop.

Thank you in advance for being an ambassador for TEC21 and supporting our vision and mission for the sake of the Gospel! #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
