This morning, Deb Brown and I presented a workshop on different strategies elementary teachers can use in their classrooms.

We had a great time!

If you’re interested, we put all of the goodies in a Dropbox folder. You can get the goodies here.

For creating final products, Deb shared a mobile app called Our Story. Perfect for younger kids. Another option is an app called Adobe Voice.
