140 or Less: How Fox Sports 1 Changed How I Use PowToon (Part 2)

If you ever watched Fox Sports 1, you may notice that they have a news feed that is titled “3 Things You Should Know,” which communicates a brief summary of the 3 most important sports happenings of the day.

It made me think some ways to use PowToon and the “3 Things You Should Know” idea in my class:
  • Create a PowToon about 3 current events currently happening in your subject area. Play it at the beginning of class as students begin taking their seats. You will be amazed by the engagement!
  • From getting a pencil out to handing in homework, communicate beginning of class instructions through PowToon! 
  • Have your students create their own “3 Things You Should Know” about the topic covered in class that day. It is a great way to gauge understanding!


Posts for the month of November are dedicated to a little boy named Ayden. He was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and is at Hershey Medical Center receiving treatment. For every time someone visits my blog during the month of November, I am going to donate a penny to his medical fund. 

Several donors have agreed to match this amount.
