What is a PLC? (Professional Learning Communities)

I knew this time would come.¬†It’s presentation time, the punishment for attending the 2011 PLC Summit in Phoenix, Arizona. ūüôā Well, it was worth it. I have continued to use what I have learned and it’s paying off. Step by step, little by little.¬† Sooooo, this week we have to do an overview of what PLC is. We took a lot of our information from Solution Tree’s HUGE book they gave us at the summit. We COLLABORATED and came up with this Powerpoint. I also created an animated video using GoAnimate¬†using ¬†ideas we got from Dr.Anthony Muhammad. Check it out! And if you like, let me know what you think!

Getting Animated with GoAnimate4Schools!

I spent part of my Saturday playing around with this site. I discovered GoAnimate a¬†while ago, but with so many things going on, I lost track of it. Basically, it is a site where students and teachers can create animations.¬† They not only have state of the art animation tools, but, they also have a Lesson ¬†gallery where teachers can¬†view ¬†animations created by other teachers or students.¬† I like it because it is so easy to use, really.¬† There is a tutorial on the page to get you started. Each student can have their own account, which can be monitored. I haven’t used it with my students yet, but I am looking forward to it. If anyone has used it, and has any ideas they can share, I would appreciate it!

In order to get the hang of it,  I took one of the ideas from my posts, and made a short video. So cool!
