I discovered rainbow scratch paper after one of my online students used it to draw a portrait of yours truly:
I wasn't too sure about my nose, but I loved the way the colors looked on the black paper. This magic scratch paper is essentially black paper with rainbow underneath. So when you scratch it away, it makes a really unique aesthetic.
So as soon as I discover something new, I do what I always do…
…I research it. I think how it can be useful for teaching. And then I share it with the DigiNo Community.
