  • Which of the following is less torturous?
  • Always have to enter a room by announcing your last name OR always have to exit a room by doing cartwheels?
  • Trading your cell phone for a pager or trading your laptop for a desktop?
  • Question #1: How can one balance mandatory curriculum with creativity when admin/district expect teachers to stay on track without delays?



  • Kids creating the resources that the class uses


  • eBooks in Book Creator -
  • Mixtapes in Flipgrid -
  • “How are we asking them, ‘What did you do, how have you grown and how can you connect that material’?”
  • Creativity definition on Wikipedia -
  • “Nobody expects you to have the perfect classroom this year, because nobody has the perfect classroom this year.  All we’re suggesting is that you continue to make forward movements based off on what you see that you and your students need.” 


  • Question #2: How can educators leverage technology to create more personal connections and make all students comfortable in the classroom?
  • FlipGrid


  • Synth -
  • PearDeck -
    • “Temperature checks”
    • Seeing answers while students write them
    • “We can talk about the wrong answers; we can talk about the right answers, but most importantly, we can talk about their answers.”
  • Nearpod -
  • Student Voice
  • Give students feedback - If you ask them to respond to a question in a platform, be sure to give them feedback so that they continue to give quality answers and see that you’re listening. - “Don’t ask for more than you can read and handle.”



  • Giving students a space for free responses (in EdPuzzle, PearDeck, NearPod, etc.) to give them opportunities to express confusion or ask for help.
  • Be sure to explain to students & parents why you’re doing things like flipped learning.  It helps them feel more comfortable, but it also helps them see your “why.”
