[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Some thoughts on using a website tool such as ImgFlip: – – Works on any device since it is web-based – Large collection of images provided – Option to upload your own image – Reasonably easy to use – Possibly some inappropriate content from other users in the public gallery…
  • If you want to provide your students with some pre-selected images, I have included a link in the template to a Google Folder with a collection of common meme pictures.
  • Some thoughts on using Google Drawings to create a meme image: – – Works on PC’s, Macs, and Chromebooks, but would not be as easy on a mobile device.

  • Some thoughts on using Meme Buddy to create a meme image: – – Works on PC’s, Macs, and Chromebooks, and on a mobile devices if you have the Google Assistant app installed – Ability to ask for any image for the meme – Very easy to use – Possibly incorrect…

How Your Students can use Google Drawings to Create Greeting Cards

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Google Drawings is a very flexible program, allowing you to add text boxes, wordart, images, shapes, and more, to any part of the Drawing, and at any angle, much like a desktop publishing program would.
  • See below for a video tutorial explaining how to use Google Drawings to create greeting cards, then read the rest of the post for more details and two templates you and your students can copy to begin the process.
  • For each section you can edit and format the text and insert images as needed to create your own greeting card.
  • For a portrait card, the inside left and inside right sections of the card need to have any text and images flipped vertically so those sections will print upside down.
  • To flip text or an image: – – Select the textbox or image – Click Arrange then click Rotate – Choose Flip vertically – Or choose Rotate 90 degrees twice – – – Removing Guides – – There are gray borders around each of the four sections of the template…

How Senior Capstone Projects Let Students Research—and Present—Their Passions – News

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Listening to Nicoles impassioned and detailed presentation on the Puerto Rican debt crisis and its impact on the islands healthcare system, it was easy to forget a high school senior was addressing a group of 100 students and teachers.Nicoles story was a personal one.
  • To allow for deep dives in areas of interest for students, Bullis, a K-12 independent school in Potomac, Maryland, where I work, offers signature programs in four areas: entrepreneurship, humanities and global studies, STEM and visual and performing arts.
  • In Upper School, students may choose from several classes in each signature program to deepen their experience, and by senior year can enroll in one of the rigorous courses if they choose.
  • When signature programs were first developed, the program directors specifically defined how students would document their learning journey and their presentations during the symposium day.
  • In that first year, Faith Darling, our STEM Director, required all students follow a prescriptive format on symposium day: there was a template for the powerpoint presentation and students created an accompanying science fair-like poster presentation.
