So, you think you can search?

Where Am I

Where Am I?

Imagine the following situation:  You’ve had a sudden episode of amnesia while on a trip  and have suddenly just woken up in a strange place.  You have no idea where you are.  All you know is that this is the view out the window.

You need to get your anti-amnesia medicine to prevent blacking out again and you need it fast.

Insurance will cover the cost of sending your medicine via courier, but you need to know where to tell them to go.

Question:  Where are you?  Can you find the street address, in what building, in what city?

For today’s extra credit--can you figure out what office number and floor to send the medicine?  How about the phone number?

Search on!

And remember… be sure to tell us HOW you figured it out and how long it took you to do!  (One of the points of this blog is to share the search methods and tricks we know!)

(And a tip of the hat to Andrew Sullivan for his inspirational “The View From Your Window” series.)

I found a very easy-to-follow infographic that helps determine which iPad Apps work well with Bloom’s Taxonomy and cover the different classifications of learning objectives.

Disclaimer: I did not create this great graphic. This was found at Paul Hopkin’s site: 

NOTE: After some digging around, I found that this iPadagogy Wheel was created by Allan Carrington and he now has a new version!


Sketch Up!

My 5th Grade students love Google’s Sketch Up. Even those students not inclined in drawing/art, they love the way you can create things. You’ll see the students are designing homes and buildings. Its a very impressive application. Now I’ll have to make a lesson/unit using this tool.
