Create Your Own Emojis for the Classroom | by @EdTechnocation
Emojis are all the rage these days! We use them to communicate in text messages, we decorate our photos with them, there is even a movie about them. Wouldn't it be great if we could create our own. Or better yet, have students create them for the classroom! Find out how within (and get a free EdTechnocation Emoji sticker!)...

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor with 6 Virtual Reality Resources

Remembering #PearlHarbor75 w/ #VRinEDU #GoogleExpeditions #GoogleEDU @EdTechnocation
December 7, 2016 will mark 75 years since the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor, a day that took the lives of many and changed the course of history for the entire world. It is a day that we never forget and a day that, we as teachers, should always take time to share with our students. When I was a 4th/5th grade educator teaching students about World War II, we would find our information from books, pictures, articles, and web resources. I couldn't simply take them on a field trip to significant sites from history. But now-a-days we can, with virtual reality.
