Finding Something NEW!August 26, 2011 4:17 pm Uncategorized
When we start a new school year, we often want “new” things – new clothes, new shoes, new hairdos, and of course, new lesson ideas. I opened my Google Search box and had some fun a few minutes ago. I found some great videos and images. They definitely will “spice” up lessons.
I clicked on Google Images and in the box typed “CTE”. I discovered 1,500,000 (approx) images. Did not have time to look at them all but felt I saw things that would make great posters, clipart, and powerpoint images.
I then clicked on Google Videos, in the box typed “CTE Pathways” and took a look at what came on the screen. The first several pages were all uploads to YouTube of Utah CTE Pathway videos. Then I began to see other states and their videos. You might want to check them out. There seemed to be several very good ones about the Culinary Arts Pathway. Next I input “Career and Technical Education” and was surprised at the many extensions of this phrase that were offered. I looked at about 10 different videos and realized that I had excellent material for our Advisory Lessons and our Career Day Experience here at Two Rivers.
I would encourage each of you to explore Google Images and Videos for some “new” additions to your lessons and your classroom. I look forward to seeing what you have found.
