So SP Design Lab hasn't started yet this year but we have a team of students creating new 3D tags for our classrooms.
This year we have access to a room that we will be using for more in depth projects Tuesday through Friday in the afternoons. This space is going to be known as the SP Innovation Lab because it will help foster deeper dives with smaller groups around specific student created projects. We already have an awesome proposal for a Minecraft group using the 1:1 iPads.
So a few things have caused the SP Design Lab to have to wait until October to start.

Our students in 4th and 5th grade are receiving iPads so right now the focus is building the structure and preparing all of the iPads.
I am very excited because I have always felt that the iPad has so much potential for creation. We can now use the Spheros, Dashes, and many coding apps as well as 3D Design apps. I can only imagine what I will get to learn with students this school year as they have such a powerful device to use.
We have also started participating in Rock Our World. This year the focus is on using sketch note taking and garageband.
We started with Garageband on the laptops but soon we will be using the student iPads. Students have really enjoyed creating music together as well as learning about other ways to take notes.
Today we used google classroom for students to share their work as they are creating. So much fun!
