Early Morning Metcalf Tech PD

What does early morning Tech PD look like at Metcalf? Watch the video below.

50 minutes of PD in 30 seconds!

Stop motion video could be a great way to show parents what indoor recess or a group project looks like in your classroom. All you need is an iPhone, iPad, or any Android device and an object to prop your phone against. Are your students working on a hands on project? Capture it using the time lapse feature and show it off to your students and their parents.

Update, 3/3.
Okay, it is a boring video that doesn't show much movement.  Select a livelier subject than three teachers sedately poking their laptops. You'll have fun. Your kids will like it, and parents will appreciate the glimpse into their child's classroom.
