Yesterday I ran the second of my online PLD around Seesaw. This time is was focusing on Seesaw activities, explaining how to find them, save them and create them for yourself. This was modelled via the zoom online recording and recorded for those of you that might not have been able to make it. I also shared a whole lot of recording templates and seesaw activity templates than can be used for creating Seesaw activities. Check out the online recording below and the slide deck attached at the bottom for yourself.
Over the holidays I will be running some online Zoom PLD to help share the skill and knowledge I have with Seesaw. I know we are all using our own different online platforms for home learning; but Seesaw has great opportunities to be used at home with learners. These session are all free to attend and have a slide deck free that you can use to guide your learning for afterwards. These are also recorded if you can't make the time or session planned.
Just want to watch a recording? Find it below.

Over the past few years I have worked on pdfs and ibooks that aim to transfer idea, knowledge and skill about key software or apps that I have used. I love sharing my work and ideas with others and another way of doing that is through ibooks. These are pdfs that I have created and released on Apple ibooks for educators to read and access from all over the world.
Check out five of the ones I have released and created:
Did you know that you can change the bullets in Google slides to emojis!!!!! I had no idea until I read this on twitter the other day. I love using emojis and these are way cooler than the bullets they have already put in Google Slides. It is so simple to change them also!
Check out my example and quick tutorial video above as well! A great way to add detail, excitement and difference to any of the work you are doing on Google Slides. Easy for students to change in their learning too!
