SHINE WITH YOUR STORY This session was about telling stories developing with adobe: Adobe Spark Page, Adobe Spark Video and Adobe Spark Post  with Marybell Rodriguez. I really enjoy this tool because is an easy way to create and share information with students or with parents. In fourth grade we finished the history unit and students visited the Museo de Historia Mexicana were they review all we learned in class it was really grateful to see how students know the information and can talk about history they learned in class. With this Field Trip I create an Adobe Spark Page with photos and information about this unit and I shared with parents. I received some mails about how students talk about this visit to museum and share information to parents about they learned. Parents and students saw the Adobe Spark Page and review the information.

What You All Want to Know- Differentiation in Action with Josh Almoite
In this session Josh share about how he made differentiation in his classroom. He is using Nearpod with his students. Nearpod is an interactive presentation and assessment tool that can be used to amazing effect in the classroom, contain Quiz´s, polls, videos, images, drawing-Borads, web content. The children can access a teacher´s presentation through a code. It is up to the teacher to then move the class through the presentation and let them interact with the media as they go. During writing unit I used Nearpod with my students and they can share with the group ideas about they learn and collaborate and get feedback from partners and teacher and definitely more engaged.

On September 21 we celebrate Peace Day so 4th grade students written a word that means Peace. I used an app called word cloud and make a pigeon with these words. During DT meeting we learn how to make a gif image. So I used a gif to share what does Peace means and share this on Twitter the students where very excited to learn how to make a gif and they use it in Geography projects.

TI projects

My first choice is Inspiring Spaces for the TI Project. In my opinion is important to create the best environment for students to learn. It is a great opportunity for me because is something I never think about or dedicate time and importance to it. I also made special accommodations based in curriculum but not in my students or learning styles. My second choice is E-Portofolio so that students can use it as a resource of learning and working on their mistakes, improving and to apply their corrections in the future. 

DT role

Digital teacher role in classroom is to try every day to engage students with different activities. In Spanish I think is very important to try something new or different with my students so they can learn the information but in a more interesting and funnier way. Being a Digital Teacher for me is to use strategies with a purpose, to engage students to see it as a better opportunity for them and an easy way to create their bright future. We use an image (ipad)with the apps we use in classroom.

Disrupt learning

Binge learning I think that what all teacher is looking for, we expect kids come to our classrooms with their eyes lighting up and happy. 3 things we can create atmospheres of being learning: We need to change the focus of question intead of answering question all time, sometime as a teacher we give all the answers, instead of this we need to guide kids into the answer looking for the process of thinking. The way we capturing learning is very important how we get this information, is more important the process of the solution instead of the information.
Literacy: Our students need to be transiterate, not just teach with reading and writing, They need to learn to understand videos, photos, study of cases etc.
