Spring Cleaning! Power Up for the End of the Year!

Is it Spring yet? Are you getting cabin fever? We are! This week, we have a few tools that should help you and your students feel a little more refreshed and organized.

Draw IO

Draw.io helps you get organized and brainstorm pretty much any topic you can think of. It has so many ways to organize your ideas, and if you can’t find a template you like, you can create your own! Choose from hundreds (or more) of shapes, pictures, fonts and colors.


The other organizing site is Trello. We use Trello to keep our crazy life organized. It is a great way to store ideas along with pictures, links, files and so much more. You can create a board for your personal life and boards for students. It could be great way for students to organize a PLP (personalized learning plan)! Try it and share your ideas with us!


Lastly, it’s time to GoNoodle! Get up and get your students moving! Often educators think GoNoodle is just for elementary grades but, everyone loves to get up and be active. Try the workouts or mindfulness categories with older kids and you might be surprised.


I hope these tools put some spring in your step during the next week!

Thanks for listening!
