The Fantastic Prompt and Mr Fox

Unleash Your CREATIVITY with AI: And bring your IMAGINATION to life!

CREATE something you’ve NEVER SEEN before with AI. Your imagination is the only limit.

DIVE into this video, where we explore the MAGIC OF PROMPTING with AI and Adobe FireFly - a tool that turns your imagination into reality!
I guide kids through a brainstorming adventure, teaching them to harness their collective creativity
and really think about great descriptions for the characters in "The Fantastic Mr Fox".

Using an interactive whiteboard, bring "The Fantastic Mr Fox" to life, exactly the way you imagine him.
Then save the images to a computer, and share them via Google Drive.
The kids can then pick their favourite images, describe their characters, and justify their choices.

JOIN ME in this CREATIVE JOURNEY where IMAGINATION KNOWS NO BOUNDS!

Ever dream of a classroom buzzing with self-directed learners, diving deep into knowledge with insatiable curiosity?
We all have!

BUT that nagging voice whispers,
"How can I possibly manage personalized learning for every single student?" I hear you!

Here's the secret:
Empower your students to LEAD their own learning journey!
I know, I know, you're thinking, "But how do I keep track of 25 different paths?" It's actually SIMPLE!

Let Students Take Charge! ‍
Self-Monitoring Progress: Ditch the teacher-centric grading! Empower students to tracktheir own learning!
This builds ownership and responsibility.

Self-Evaluation
Move beyond teacher-led assessments.
Let students evaluate theirunderstanding!
This fosters critical thinking and metacognition.

Difficulty Gauges
 Ditch the one-size-fits-all approach!
Let students determine taskdifficulty. This personalizes the learning experience.

Independent GoalSetting
Empower students to chart their own course!
Let them settheir next steps and confidently seek help when needed.

Celebrating Success 
Let students revel in their own accomplishments!
Seeing their progress fuelsmotivation and a love for learning.

Code of the Netizens

This Website & Newsletter is not free, despite the misleading advertising above.

The FEE is now due.

Each week you must help one colleague on the Internet who has less knowledge than you.

Help that person even if you have to visit their classroom or do a little research and get back to them. Trust me, this will help a lot of people get their classrooms running much better much faster.

Oh! and send them a link to VT for inspiration.
OK I'm trusting you!!!

Why I love writing VT - there is no force or other authority in the world more powerful than a lot of people thinking differently and writing about it!!!!.
