Unplug’d

One of my richest professional development experiences involved being a member of the Un’Plugd planning team, alongside an enthusiastic team of educators focussed on planning “off-the-grid”events which bring together educators from across the globe to collaborate, share stories & co-author the following:  What Matters Most in Education and Letters from the Edge.

#EdBookClub emerged from a discussion between educators (@kellypower and @benhazzard) about how using Twitter could encourage professional dialogue.  The purpose of this Twitter discussion is to engage in an informed discussion on Twitter that also provides a purpose and audience for educator tweets.  It is a discussion about a common book or article, that is voted on via a TwitPoll, by educators and people interested in applying the book’s content in an education setting.

  1. Morning :). I am a high school geography teacher in Ottawa. I have just discovered the 100 days of sketches. I love so many of these sketches.
    I want to use the map of Canada one with facts within my class. My question is how do you create the graphics?? I would love to be able to do this in the computer and have a student add to it each day, but not sure how to do this. (Old school paper will work as well… But those graphics are so zippy!!)
    Thanks for this. Enjoy start up!!!!!

    1. Good morning Kathryn,
      Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed my sketchnote project! I used my iPad Pro with Apple pencil and the Paper 53 app on the iPad for the project. Basically any draw program would work! If you want to make it interactive, you could always put a large Canada Map on the wall and have kids add their facts to it old school. Or if you want to use technology, you could explore any draw program and have kids create!
      Good luck and enjoy the year!
      Kelly-Ann
