RecycleMania 2019
Recyclemania is a nationwide intercollegiate contest designed to help our universities and communities become better stewards of the environment. The friendly annual competition runs for eight weeks, beginning in February. The school that recycles the most material per capita wins the competition—however, we all win because we achieve a greener environment.

A successful recycling program requires education, promotion, teamwork, and the participation of the entire community. The success of our program at UTSA depends on your cooperation!

Please, before throwing away items, consider those recyclable products that can be disposed of in the blue recycling containers. These include paper, cardboard, plastics, and aluminum cans. Items that go into trash bins include items such as food, liquids, used napkins and facial tissues, coffee grounds, and styrofoam.

Visit our recycling home page for an overview of recycling do’s and don’ts: http://www.utsa.edu/safety/?section=recycling&page=news#/recycling/recycling

Go Green! Go Roadrunners! Go UTSA!

Transforming education requires us to rethink how we teach and learn. The ISTE Standards act as a roadmap for bold, innovative educators and education leaders to re-engineer their schools and classrooms for digital age learning no matter where they fall on the journey to meaningful, effective ed tech integration. (https://www.iste.org/standards)

Focus: ISTE Educator Standard 5. Designer
Educators design authentic, learner-driven activities and environments that recognize and accommodate learner variability.

For Educators: Designer 5b
Design authentic learning activities that align with content area standards and use digital tools and resources to maximize active, deep learning.

The 5 Interactive Question Types in Google Slides

With every question type you can put content on the main slide (which will show on the projector screen) and then configure the way students will respond. Content you can put on the main slide area:
• Text
• List
• Image
• YouTube
