I’ve written about several different tech tools in previous blogs, and I’ve got more to go…but today I want to talk about some specific ways to use tech tools to liven up your assignments. Tired of grading the same boring papers? In the market to try something new next semester? Then this blog post is for you!
Warning: this post is not about teaching or professional development. It’s a post about something I am trying out. I guess this is a way to hold me accountable? For those of you who know me, you know I adore podcasts. While listening to an episode of This American Light (episode: The Show of Delights), I was struck by how certain moments in time fill us with joy. Little things, like when I am getting ready to eat some incredibly simple tostadas on a week night. Or big things, like when my husband and I made our common law marriage official (with a piece of printer paper that we had notarized, stating we agreed to be in a common law marriage. Romantic, I know. We are waiting for Nicholas Sparks to contact us for new story ideas).
