Here are some videos of the current things that are being addressed in some of my school districts:
Using the screencastify extension
More and more students are beginning to use the screencast by Chrome extension to record themselves narrating slideshows. I have use this with kindergarten, first grade all the way through high school. It's an extension that works very well and is simple to use. This perfect to pair with Google slides and have students narrate a slideshow.
Awesome Calendar Tip for scheduling
Creating a “Period” based calendar. Did you know there is a calendar that can help you with booking appointments? When making appointment slots is not as efficient this is an option one of my districts has taken.
Breakout EDU Session at Dobbs Ferry
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with teacher leaders at the Dobbs Ferry Union Free School District and facilitate a Breakout Edu lesson. Breakout edu is a platform for immersive learning, a presenta challenge in a fun format for students to apply their knowledge and research to solve the puzzle of the box. I have a kit and I am more than happy to facilitate a session in your class or with your department. Anyone can do break out, all you need is a box you can order one or you can create one the directions are open source and available to all. Congrats to the Dobbs HS teacher leaders who “Escaped” with 9 minutes to spare! There are games available from elementary through secondary.
I am a technology leader, professional developer, teacher, parent and proud owner of an IEP. Let's talk about some fabulous learning experiences.
