Activstudio Training

Yesterday's flipcart presentations were wonderful. Each and every flipchart was unique and creative. There is so much that can be done with activstudio training. I feel more confident in using its applications.

Activstudio Training

I am enjoying activstudio training. Every day this week has been an exciting challenge for learning. I am feeling more comfortable with using the applications as the training progresses.
Activotes is an important tool for assessment. It also helps in keeping the students engaged with the topic. Ms. Mercer is a wonderful instructor. I am greatly appreciative for her expertise.

Activstudio Training

I really enjoyed learning how to make items appear. This technique will be helpful in assisting students with recalling information on concepts learned.

Activstudio Training

I learned so much more about active studio as the morning progressed. I learned how to create containers and place objects in them. I was able to place a video inside an object that I created. When you clicked on the object, it played the video. I thought that was fabulous! This technique will be great for my classroom because the students can relate the object with the video concept being introduced.

Activstudio Training

My first day of active studio training was very informative. I learned the beginnings of making a flip chart. I was very excited about being able to incorporate biological concepts with making flip charts. This training will help my students become more engaged in biology because it provides a more visual way of learning.

As a new teacher, I am very new to the technology being used. I am very excited about going on this conference. With this training, I plan to use a wide variety of technology in my classroom.
