For the past few weeks, students at the Nathan Hale in grades 3, 4, and 5 have been working on studying biographies and learning to use resources, both print and digital, to create posters displaying what they've learned about their subjects.
The third graders have been working with myself and the technology teacher in the tech lab. The unit began with learning how to use KidsInfobits to do background research, and then translating their knowledge into interactive glogs using Glogster. This video, submitted as part of Digital Learning Day/Month, showcases the awesome work these third graders have done. They're very proud of themselves!
My name is Ms. Bery. I am a PK-8 library media specialist in the Boston area. In addition to being a certified school librarian, I am also certified in instructional technology, and have a strong interest in exploring and integrating technology in new and exciting ways in the classroom.
I am also a 2016 PBS LearningMedia Local Digital Innovator, and a 2015 recipient of the Massachusetts School Library Association's President's Award.
Check out the Sandbox for apps and websites I've found useful in supporting student learning and creativity. I also (very occasionally) review children's and young adult literature on my book reviews page.
