At the gracious invitation of our diocese’s Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, I had the chance to swing by Marymount University this morning and try my hand as an honest-to-goodness master class instructor for a graduate education course!
Thanks for hosting me @LcLipovski! Was so great representing @OConnellHS and feeding off of the energy from future educators of @marymountu. It was an absolute joy to learn with you folks today! #CathEdSocial pic.twitter.com/1omnDzI5lR

In our two hour block, we took a room full of aspiring teachers through the paces of a high-energy superhero-themed #QRBreakIN, and then offered a blow-by-blow breakdown of practical ways to shift to a more student centered classroom experience. What a powerful way to put our money where our mouth is as teacher teachers! Rather than blabbing on and on for hours about all these great new educational approaches like Flipgrid, Quizziz, Gimkit, EdPuzzle, and Google Forms, we simply put the tech into the hands of the next generation of educators and let them take these super-powered classroom tech tools for a test drive.
Energy was through the roof.
Thanks so much for having me, Marymount. Cannot wait to see the amazing things your students have to show the world in just a few short months when they’re ready to join this incredible profession.
