We toured the PAST Foundation today and I'm in love with this building! It's exactly how a school should be set up - from the garage doors that open up to a large common area, to the barn style doors that allow for classrooms to collaborate together, to the huge whiteboards everywhere for students to just write down thoughts or work out problems, or create ideas. I wish more schools would come look at this facility because if we want out students to become better at problem solving and collaborating we need to not only offer lessons that promote those skills but also a learning environment that promotes this. If you have a free minute stop by and ask for a tour or sit in on a class!
Anyone using OSMO out there? Trying to come up with some ideas for workstations using OSMO for my upcoming PD class. It's a pretty cool tool just trying to see how others are using it. Let me know!
Taught my first iPad Pro class today! I'm in LOVE with this device and can't get enough of the artistic apps that it offers. I have so many favorite apps for this that I love but I think my favorite is Adobe Photoshop Mix - it's free, you just have to sign up for an account. I created this awesome image by taking some free images from Flickr and mixing them together. I am working on some images of my own but need to get out with my camera and go visit some of the metro-parks so I can get good images.
