@Lexi Daly
Reading Teacher, Instructional Technology Specialist, MakerSpace Coach. I have been an educator for 31 years total, most at Trinity Episcopal School in New Orleans in a variety of positions, settling into small group and support work for the last 20+ years. Integrating creative technology in meaningful ways is my jam!

Session description

Get a variety of creative ideas for integrating technology into reading instruction to bring stories to life. Activities include building story timelines, "Fakebook" posts, entrance and/or exit tickets, rewriting books, stepping into stories with or as the characters, gamified assessment and more!

Purpose & objective

Participants will learn how to utilize technology to have students respond creatively to books in Reading instruction. Examples include building a story timeline or character "Fakebook" page on padlet, news stories that could happen as a result of the plot in iMovie, or creating a personal version of a popular book using Pages or Book Creator - all of which serve to motivate students to think and respond creatively about the stories they read.
