Power My Learning

Posted on Apr 16, 2014 by Oneisha Freeman Last Activity on Apr 16, 2014

I have been using powermylearning.org in my after-school program for the past month after learning about the site through one of the CFY staff. I am very impressed by the sites features and how both the after school staff (educator), the parents and children can all be connected. The best part about the site is that it reinforces digital literacy skills while also showing common core standards for both math and language arts. They even have reports where you can show how much time each child has spent on the different activities and subject areas. The is a great way for youth in after-school programs to spend their computer time. There are many educational games on the internet but few free sites that will give program staff the feedback that the Power My Learning Site gives. The site is constantly being enhanced and I look forward new updates! POWER MY LEARNING

Fun with Photoshop

Posted on Feb 5, 2014 by John Christopher Last Activity on Feb 5, 2014

I recently conducted a training on Photoshop for teachers.   The problem that  I always run into, is how to make photoshop relevant to the curriculum.  Basically, learning Photoshop for the sake of learning Photoshop and just having that knowledge is not going to cut it in a public school.  Teachers always want to know "How can I use this in the classroom" or "How does this tie to the curriculum"?

2014 Calendar, Dodecahredron Net (12 sided 'cube')

Posted on Nov 23, 2013 by A J Butler Last Activity on Dec 8, 2013

Here's a Calendar that can be printed, cut out and folded to make a 12 sided 'cube'. Created in Adobe Illustrator. Feel free to edit it or just use the pdf version. For future years, just tab and backspace/delete about 50 times to move the dates around. Designed for 8.5x11 but it fits on A4 paper. I often use a thicker paper to print, so the dodecahedron folds better.
