Tech Star: Chris Robertson, BJH
kstrauss 7:24 AM tech starInspiration... What is the definition? According to Google it means, "The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative." Chris Robertson, Social Studies teacher at Brenham Junior High, was inspired when a colleague demonstrated THINGLINK. I was told that he went home that night and stayed up past midnight creating ThingLink presentations!!
Mr. Robertson taught an excellent lesson with ThingLink related to the Vietnam War. Starting from a map of Vietnam ThingLink, his students traveled to a jungle ThinkLink, President Nixon's Office, and more. He included images, sound bites, YouTube videos, and text. The students were totally engaged.
Forget Powerpoint, get inspired with ThingLink and Chris Robertson.
