Animated Drawing is a nifty online tool that incorporates a four-step process to bring life to simple character drawings. Use the sample drawings to get an overview of the example images. Begin by following the initial checklist that provides guidelines for successful use, including giving a drawing of one character on a white, well-lit background. When ready, upload your photo and follow the prompts to resize, separate, and find the character joints. The final step offers choices to change the motions of your character to dancing, walking, jumping, or funny. Finally, use the share icon to download the image as an mp4 file, share it to social media sites, or copy a link to the page with your animated image.

tag(s): animation (64), drawing (61), editing (80), images (250), preK (241)

In the Classroom

This animated drawing tool engages students in learning using their creative expressions and artwork. Incorporating animated images on most sites is easier when using a GIF file instead of the provided MP4; use a file conversion tool such as EzGIF, reviewed here. Include animated drawings in student blogs created with Edublogs, reviewed here, or in multimedia presentations produced in Sway, reviewed here.

As students explore artists and their work, have them share their learning by creating a website using Carrd, reviewed here. Carrd is a simple website creation tool that asks students to add images, information about artists, and their reflections on the artwork. Extend learning by turning the tables and allowing the students to become the teacher using Symbaloo Learning Paths, reviewed here. Ask students to create a Learning Path about their favorite artist or media that includes links to biographies, art displays, videos, quizzes, and more. Share Learning Paths with peers to provide a personalized learning experience about art.

Square Dancing is considered a uniquely American dance form, although it has strong roots in 17th Century English and French dance forms. This lesson for grades 3-5 uses the inquiry process to introduce students to square dancing and guide them through completing a "Kids Guide to Square Dancing." As a final project, groups of students create an instructional video and perform a square dance for their peers. The lesson includes links to videos, supporting lessons, and suggestions for making the instructional video presentation. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable.

tag(s): dance (23), process writing (37)

In the Classroom

Use this lesson as an alternative to typical informational writing prompts. Engage students in learning about square dance as you introduce the first activity that asks students to share what they know about square dancing using an interactive whiteboard tool such as IdeaBoardz, reviewed here. For example, create a board with two sections - use one section for students to share what they know and the second section for sharing what they would like to learn. Use Padlet, reviewed here, to organize resources for students to use when researching the guide to square dancing. Include a column for videos, another for music, and another with tips on how to write an instructional guide. Enhance the video portion of lessons using playposit, reviewed here, to add comments that highlight specific portions of the video such as types of dance steps or choreography.

This lesson provides students with an understanding of traditional Latin dance styles using videos and comparisons to elements of dance using standard terminology. The study focuses on different types of dance that include salsa, mambo, merengue, rumba, cha-cha, bachata, and samba. In addition, activities introduce the geography behind the dances and provide an introduction to the history behind the dance styles. As a final activity, student groups select a country and dance style to research and present to their peers. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (148), dance (23), spanish (97)

In the Classroom

Use the ideas found in this lesson to incorporate dance into your lessons that feature the Caribbean or South American countries. For example, when studying the history of Cuba, include ideas from this lesson and additional information about the dances that originated in the country to help students engage in a deeper understanding of the culture. As students share their research and presentations, provide them with various options to share their learning. For example, allow students to choose from Sway, reviewed here, to create a multimedia presentation, or offer students the opportunity to create a video presentation using Binumi, reviewed here, with voice overs and templates.

Take advantage of the many free primary source Strategy Guides available at Read Write Think, reviewed here, for teaching with primary sources. For example, search for the Inquiry Charts (I-Guide) Strategy Guide to download and use the printout that helps students focus on the content of any primary source. Create an inquiry chart using Google Slides, reviewed here, or Jamboard, reviewed here, for students to complete as a group. Enhance learning through the use of a video add-on tool such as edpuzzle, reviewed here. edpuzzle offers options to add comments and questions into videos to help students focus on important concepts. Extend learning by asking students to share their understanding of Native Americans using a variety of online tools. For example, ask students to use Google My Maps, reviewed here, to create maps sharing information of different tribes found around the United States. Another option is to use Adobe Creative Cloud Express for Education, reviewed here, and offer students options for creating videos or webpages sharing facts and information learned during your unit.

Looking for great ideas on how to measure learning with engaging student projects? Look no further! This workshop will introduce you to a wide range of projects designed with Sway, a free edtech design tool for students in grades 2-12. This visually dynamic, intuitive tool easily combines text, images, designs, audio, video to spark student creativity. It's shareable, can be collaborative, looks fantastic, and is accessible on any device, making it a perfect addition to your 1:1 initiative toolbox. Learn the basics in minutes and translate your new learning into powerful formative and summative student projects that focus on content rather than bells and whistles. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Learn basic use of the free Sway tool; 2. Understand what elements must be present to have an authentic, successful show-what-you-know student project; and 3. Plan for the use of Microsoft Sway in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
