Getting to Know You/My Favorite Things
Share a video about your favorite things (make the video in advance) to introduce yourself to your students.
Using Popplet or another mind-mapping program (or old-school handout), students will create a bubble map of their favorite things.
Students will create a very short presentation about their favorite things.
Direct students to one particular technology or give them a choice between several. Recommended tools include Animoto, Comic Life, ThingLink, Prezi, and Padlet.
Students will share their presentations with the class as a way to introduce themselves. If time is limited or you are concerned about shy students, you can have students only share with a partner or small group. You can also have students post a link to their presentation on a class website where they can be viewed later.
