Reflection: Joy Getting Techy (Day 4): Using Technology to Showcase Mini-Research Projects - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


As students finished up their presentations in Google Drive today, students asked me, "Mrs. Hesemann: Can I make another presentation?"  The joy of learning something new, and seeing the product of their hard work, had really become inspiring to my students!  I wasn't ready for the students to ask me if they could make another presentation right away, but at this point, when I could see their joy of learning was so infectious, how could I say no?  So, of course I said yes, and told students that if they'd like to make another presentation, they could make a presentation entitled "All About Me" and share that with me as well!  Instantly, students were jumping back into Google Drive and starting up another presentation!  Now, that is something that makes my teacher-heart smile!
