The hectic beginning of school continues for me as I leave the trenches of Boot Camp and enter into the realm of ReBoot Camp. While Boot Camp is for the 6th graders of WMS, ReBoot camp is reserved for the 7th and 8th grade ‘upperclassmen’. They have a year or two of using their laptops under their belts so they are well-versed in Wiss21. However, each year it is important for me to meet with them once again (I feel like their Jedi master sometimes) to apprise them of any updates, new technology, and to remind them once again about the importance of digital organization and Digital Portfolio expectations.
For these lessons, I commandeer the classroom of a team’s Social Studies teacher for the day and instead of Social Studies that day, the students get their ReBoot. The team’s teachers rotate into that classroom all day so that they also learn what the students are learning and are kept up-to-date with technology changes and updates.
Once again, I’ve created a Sway to present the ReBoot Camp. Check it out below.
