What does my 2nd grade in Iceland do differently?

In March last year I was preparing for a trip to Burley Elementary School in Chicago IL.

I was going to Burley to learn from them and see their amazing work with iPads as part of my Professional Development and to prepare for our iPad pilot project that started in the fall of 2012.

Before I left I decided to show them a glimpse of what we were doing at the time in my classroom at Árskóli in Sauðárkrókur, Iceland. I recorded this short video on what we did in the month of March (nothing out of the ordinary for my kids, but might inspire you). I shared this with the teachers at Burley a month later and now wanted to share it with you.

Hope you enjoy it.
