I am pretty energized these days. But when I hear “student” and “showcase” in the same sentence, I get extra pumped. Listening to kids talk about what they are doing in their classrooms is really interesting and enjoyable. So getting to attend the fall MACUL/AT&T Student Technology Showcase in Lansing at the Michigan State Capitol Building  as an observer was simply an awesome day. It’s the first time I didn’t have a group of kids there, which allowed me to really talk with and listen to a ton of student groups and also meet their teachers. I even recorded several interviews which can hopefully be used in an upcoming (soon to be announced) #MichEd podcast.

Here are some of the highlights from the day (with links below).

Check out some Michigan classrooms whose digital presence gives you a glipse at the type of learning taking place there:

Boyne City 1st graders

Novi 4th Graders

St. John’s Middle School

Walled Lake Kindergarteners

Southfield Christian Middle School

Cool projects were EVERYWHERE that day…just too much for me to write about.. so what you need to do is make sure you get to the showcase which is part of the MACUL Conference this coming spring. Even better…bring a team of students so that they can share with and learn from others.
