I am starting my Multiple Intelligences Project tomorrow!  I'm a little scared but excited too!  Here are the documents that go along with it.

Basically, my students are going to get to chose from one of 20+ projects to complete based on their intelligence type.  The projects will all be graded on a common rubric based on the essential questions of my current unit. 

Students will update a google doc calendar each day through google classroom to keep me up to date on their progress.  Click to see the document I will give to students tomorrow.  All hyperlinks connect to student handouts and information that is specified.  Let me know what you think!

This year, I've been trying to take more photos during classes. I've been using the images on our class blog, twitter & Instagram accounts, and occasionally sending specific pictures home to parents, trying to give them a window into our class. Since we just completed our "Road to Independence" role play unit,  I used the photos and a few short videos to create an iMovie trailer.  

What other ways do you use iMovie in class? How are students using iMovie or other video tools?

Students are supposed to be able to turn on Google Hangouts inside of their gmail. Check out this help forum for more information! I have also heard that hangouts are NOT tied to Google+ anymore, which means any student technically should be able to engage in them. 

If you test it out with your class, please provide additional thoughts!

I have a teacher asking about what app her MS students could use to create GIFs.  Anyone have experience and know of one on the approved app list?  or one for which we should ask approval?
