I heard the best quote from a colleague last week…she said
“I used to think learning math was about doing, doing, doing…and now I know it’s about meaningfully doing.”
I’m not gonna lie…I got a little tear in my eye when I heard that phrase.
As an instructional coach (technically my title is Instructional Resource Teacher), I struggle with how much to share re: all of the great resources that I come across. There are SO MANY great things out there…but it can be very overwhelming. I decided that if I really want people to take in some of these resources…I need to find a bite-size delivery model.
@RafranzDavis always has great Ed-Tech resources to share…and one she shared recently was Tackk.
(You can read more about how Rafranz has used Tackk here.)
I decided to check out the site myself, and couldn’t believe the ease of use. And IT’S FREE!
I had been looking for a way to deliver content and updates to the math department at my school~so, I decided to see what it would look like in this format.
Notice I shared one blog post, a quick video, a link to a print resource…and then some important dates and updates for our department.
I plan to do this weekly…I know there are a lot of other uses for this technology and maybe my colleagues will explore how it could be used in their classroom.
