The finish line is in sight, and summer break is so close we can almost taste it! But before busting out the flip flops and sunblock, it’s time to wrap up another successful school year. As always, MyVRSpot is here to help you and your students navigate this busy time of year. Check out this month’s newsletter to get some inspiration for year-end instructional activities, try out a brand new MediaSpot template, get support on live broadcasting your graduation ceremonies, and register for the last training webinars for the school year.
It can be difficult to keep students engaged and excited about learning after testing season is over, so MyVRSpot’s instructional tools are here to help. First, raise awareness for Water Safety Month with a new SmartSpot quiz. Next, guide students of all ages through a self-reflection exercise with the End of Year Reflection VRS assignment. Keep the creativity flowing and let your students create heart-warming personalized Mother’s Day messages with the Mother’s Day MediaSpot Template. And finally, learn about the fastest two minutes in sports with the Kentucky Derby SmartSpot quiz.
New MediaSpot Template: Student Academic Portfolio
We’ve designed a brand new MediaSpot template meant to guide high school students through highlighting their greatest academic accomplishments. Recruiters for colleges and prospective employers will be blown away by the ease with which they can view images, videos, documents and more in a digital format with the Student Academic Portfolio. Students will give a snapshot of their best work from all their core subjects, electives, extracurriculars, and college/career prep. Check out the completed example below. Find the new template by logging into your MyVRSpot account, navigating to Create > Create MediaSpot Project, and scroll all the way to the bottom.
