This season's opener got off to a wonderful start with a fantastic presentation by Aviva Dunsiger a Grade 1 teacher at Anacaster Meadow school in Ancaster/Hamilton Region Ontario Canada. Aviva has a wealth of ideas for connecting with parents and making them an integral part of their child's learning. Please listen to Aviva's presentation and follow along with the Slideshare posted below.
We have compiled this http://gl.am/zx2r6 link to provide you with all the links ( and more) that Aviva mentions during the show. How about replacing the agenda book with Twitter? No more lost in the back pack excuses and no more "did nothing today" answers. Kid blogs, Today's Meet, audio recordings on Evernote, Twitter, Wallwisher are just a few of the many free applications which she has integrated into classroom instruction.
Aviva and her colleagues at Ancaster Meadow school are leading the way.
