Snow Days…. Is it time for Digital Snow Days?

February 27, 2013

Prior to January 28th, it had been a long time (December, 2010) since we had a snow day.  Now…. after our 4th snow day of the 2012/2013 school year I can’t help but think about how we can leverage “anytime, anywhere” access to allow school work (learning) to continue.

I know several teachers at Saline High School have planned for this and have had assignments pushed out to students during these days.  Is there a way for us to still move through the curriculum on snow days?

I do know that the iconic image of a snow day centers around not having school work to do… and perhaps, the first one or two of year we don’t have system-wide assignments.  But… after 3 or 4..?

    Interesting perspective… how can we leverage this at the early elementary level? Many, but not all of our students have access to online learning opportunities.

    I’d love to see our youngest students being able to blog… either through voice opportunities or writing about their snow day activities… perhaps get them away from the television a bit, outdoors more, but still thinking about those small moment writing activities that they are physically participating in during this days away from school…

    This is a great idea.
