iMovie to Show Force and Motion
Here is a video from Ms. Iihara's 5th grade science student at Sue Crouch STEM demonstrating force and motion at home.
SWAT Students at the Apple Store
The Crowley ISD Apple Student Leadership Team visited the Apple Store in Fort Worth. The Students Who Advance Technology (SWAT) are a select group of 5th graders who are training to be student technology mentors on their campus. Students were able to participate the “Clap In” meeting with Apple employees before the store opened to the public. Pairs of students were partnered with an Apple Genius to shadow them, observe, and record customer interactions and the Apple service model. While there, students were able to greet and direct customers as well as help troubleshoot, building their service skills to enable them to assist peers and teachers on their campus with technology.
Lots of New Math Apps
Kid-Friendly Search Engines
Next time your young students are doing research try using one of these kid-friendly search engines instead of simply going to Google. These tools can help you access only age-appropriate content when you search.
On district student iPads you can download these links directly from LANrev, by looking at "profiles" and choosing "Kid Search Engines."
Did you know you can add websites to your student iPad homepage right from LANrev? The process is just like downloading apps. Open LANrev. On the bottom row look for "Profiles" instead of Apps. Here you will find a list of commonly used sites. Just tap install.
Ms. Iihara's 5th graders in the Sue Crouch STEM program have given us great examples of how to use the Touchcast App with a green screen for science. Check them out.
