One thing that the inquiry process has really driven home to me is the amount of "experts" that are in the classroom. I have 26 creative, innovative students that are ready, willing and able to share their expertise at a moment's notice, all you have to do is ask. The students have taught each other how to create powerpoints, use pic collage, stop action movie apps, iMovie, and poplet to share their information. They have been troubleshooters for technical glitches, and snafus. …Continue

The iPads are ordered and we are figuring out how to purchase the fitbits that we will need to begin our project! As we move forward with researching and developing activities to increase the activity levels and fitness of our Special Class students, we are encouraged by the enthusiasm of the students and other staff members.
