Using Digital Frames for Incidental Learning
Hello again! I wanted to pass along a GREAT idea I have found very useful in my classroom. A colleague and second grade teacher at Two Bunch Palms Elementary School, Jacinto Noriega, gave me the idea of using digital frames for incidental learning.
Here's the gist of it: Use a slide show program to export your ready-made slides into your digital frame. Make sure the slides are a readable format, such as jpeg, pdf, bmp, etc. Format and upload them to your flash drive. Plug it into your digital frame and let it cycle through the different "photos" throughout the day. When students' eyes are wandering about the classroom, hopefully they will be entranced with the rote concepts featured on the slides – helping them learn important facts and skills you've covered in class.
