Title: Discovering Tone in Art
Digital Tool: Wordle
Digital Tool Description: Wordle is a word cloud generator that will be used to capture the adjectives students produce to describe the tone of the piece of art selected for the model activity. This allows for teacher scaffolding before students attempt this on their own with a piece of art chosen from an online art museum (http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/collections/collection-online/on-view).
Title: Google in the Classroom: How to get the most out of Google Search
Digital Tool: A Google A Day
Digital Tool Description: A Google A Day is an interactive search game developed by Google to enhance the user's ability to use a search engine effectively and accurately. This tool will be used as a learning asset in the form of a Bellringer to focus students at the beginning of class on the larger lesson plan's purpose and goals, as well as to help students evaluate their own progress towards those goals. This activity will be particularly effective when used as a Bellringer for the lesson: Google in the Classroom: How to get the most out of Google Search.
