Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will leave this session with a variety of tools that they can begin implementing with their students immediately. Some of the tools that will be demonstrated to participants include Powtoon, Timeline JS, DoInk Green Screen, Playback Screencasting, and Google Slides. We have used these tools in Science and Math classrooms with great success. Students created products using desktop computers, iPads, personal mobile devices, and Chromebooks, as well as Green Screen technology. Our student products demonstrate content knowledge of various Science and Math standards. Our school, Foley Middle School, has been named the Madison County Technology School of the Year for the past three consecutive years!


We will share actual student generated products. Some of these include Powtoon that compare cell parts to various real life situations, digital timelines that show the history of space travel or important scientific advances, and music raps that demonstrate Order of Operations in Math.

I am a 7th and 8th grade science teacher at Foley Middle School. I have taught for 21 years (all in middle school, so pardon the nervous tic!). I am married to David and have a son, Sam, who is 10. I am just trying to survive in a house that’s full of tween attitude, dirty socks, sports equipment, and two gigantic Labs. I exist on coffee and humor. Contact me:
