A Learning Time Line is a wonderful way to capture learning over time or throughout a unit of instruction. Because research supports the use of non-linguistic approaches to capture and review concepts, I have used this strategy with students in the past. This week I decided to try it with adults. During a 3 day professional learning workshop on co-teaching, we documented our learning with words and pictures on a scroll of chart paper hung on the wall. I love no-prep strategies like this one!
It's Saturday morning and I just spent about 30 minutes learning how to use PowToon - a free animation tool. It was very intuitive, with a sufficient variety of free tools to leave me feeling satisfied. Of course, you can upgrade to a Pro account if you have spare dollars, but it's not necessary. I will use this as a teacher to add some "Pow" to my instruction, and can imagine how much fun students will have using it, too!
Watch my simple video and then find some play time!
