- Sign up for more info about the GIF-a-Day tech learning opportunities at JakeMiller.net/gifaday - visiting the site is not a commitment, it’s a way of stepping up and saying “I want more information about these opportunities!”
- Opportunity 1 - Spring 2018 - GoogleSheets - will be comprised of 25+ GIFs, sent out 1 per day, only to paying participants. These GIFs will not be shared elsewhere (not on Twitter, not on my website). At the end, participants will receive an eBook with all of the GIFs.
- Jake’s Soapbox
- “This made me realize that the creation of the roster was an event that I couldn’t control, but the way that I responded was something that I could control. And by doing that, I could change the outcome.”
- Jake’s old student-paced course - sites.google.com/site/millerstem8 - most of the links no longer work; the purpose of sharing it is so that you can see how it was set up.
- Today’s Guest: Angela Wojtecki - Angela is the district library media specialist and tech integrationist for Nordonia Hills City Schools located in NE Ohio. She helps co-teach the district's long-term professional development series program for teachers and also is the host and producer of the Nordonia Hills City Schools' Podcast series titled Nordonia Innovators.
