Paperless Day

I signed up for paperless day (April 22), but sadly wasn’t in class.  I kept my side of the bargain and my co-teacher ran a paperless programme for the day (and I most of the next day).

Students are busy working on movies, slideshows and blog entries about their day ( they’ll appear on the class blog), but here’s a taster of what Room 13 did.  Made entirely in Google’s Picasa with a soundtrack created in Aviary’s Myna audio editor.

  1. Hi, I’m commenting on this for EDm310 once again. Paperless day looks like a lot of fun. All those kids looked like they had a blast. I would love to be a part of this. Maybe one day when I’m a teacher, I can do a day like this. I enjoyed this very much!

  2. Dear Room 13,
    Hi my name is Gina Pace and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. As a class assignment, I will be following your blog with the expectation of gaining lots of insight as a future educator. I would like to begin by saying that the Earth Day projects were amazing! I have a friend who is a kindergarten teacher and her entire school is transitioning to paperless instruction. I am sending her a link to your blog! She is sure to be fascinated by the work that you all have done. You have shown me just how creative our students can be; the possibilities are endless.

    I enjoyed seeing how engaged the students were, their expressions were priceless. I do not believe that they could even imagine how much they learned in a single day. I hope that this is something that you will continue for years to come. Also, thank you for including the link with the projects that were made at various schools. As a future teacher, it’s nice to have such great resources available to me. On July 15, I will be summarizing my visits to your blog. Please feel free to visit my blog and post any comments or suggestions that you may have (paceginaedm310.blogspot.com/). You may also visit our class blog (edm310.blogspot.com/).

  3. Hello, it’s me again! I have never heard of “paperless day” , but I think it is a great idea and I would love to incorporate days like this into my classroom. It looks like all of the students really enjoyed this as well! I loved watching this video.
    Thank you for sharing,
    Mattie Bearden

  4. My name is Jennifer Whitley and I am a student at University of South Alabama in EDM 310. I think a “Paperless Day” would be a very good idea to get the students out of their normal routine of paper and pencil. I believe this should happen very often. In the pictures, you can see the students are very engaged in all the activities they are given. I have never thought about bringing a cell phone in the class so they could learn how to bluetooth.That is a interesting idea.
