Ggle Lunch Jan. 21, 2016 Newsela, Google Art Project, Khan Academy, Pixar in a Box.

Chuck and Chip chat about Cuban Dominos.  Chuck wonders what’s new in the library and how kids can find some of the latest tools.  Chip talks about Newsela.  This is  website that allows students to read current affairs articles that are matched to their reading levels.  It also gives you quizzes that are differentiated to that reading level.  Chuck gets on his soapbox about opening up a classroom to others in the world.  John g(Math) McGowan joins #thelunch.  Chuck continues with Dan Little’s Google map that shows other classes that would like to do hangouts. The Google Art Project is another way for students to get out of their class without leaving their seat.   Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has an article about how students can take virtual field trips.  Finally, Chuck brings up Khan Academy and their expansion into Pixar in a Box.  Chip converses about how it is the ability to access information that is changing the world so quickly.
