Here at Thomas Edison Center, we met with Jena Ball and Marty Keltz to hear about their work with the Not Perfect Hat Club. This is an incredible book and wonderful message that we can share with our students about not being perfect. We feature Rosy Burke as our travel agent, and feature Draftback in our suitcase.

We met with Jena Ball and Marty Keltz to chat about the Not Perfect Hat Club, which started to combat the “I can’t do that” in the classroom. We talked about how students pressure themselves to be perfect, and are scared to take risks.

What’s in Our Suitcase?
This week, we featured Draftback in our suitcase. Draftback is Chrome extension that takes a Google Doc revision history and turns it into a movie. This is helpful for classroom use as it holds students accountable for revisions and productivity.
