Google Forms for Teachers- A Must Read Guide ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Google Forms for Teachers- A Must Read Guide ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | CCSS High School | Scoop.it

"Google Forms is one of the potent services Google provides for free for its users. Using Google Forms, you can very easily and without the need for any advanced technology knowledge create all kinds of forms to use with your students from contact forms to quizzes and polls. Since its inception a few years ago, Google Forms has undergone some major updates and the last one in this regard is enabling users to embed pictures and images into forms."

I haven't used Google forms in a while and this is a reminder to check out the new services it has on offer. You can now embed images, so quiz making just got a whole lot better.

IHS Library's insight:
The pages of this wiki (on the left hand side) are the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts. We have attempted to align iPad apps with each standard. There will be overlap - one app may meet more than one standard.

Master Common Core Skills with Free DBQ iBook » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas

Master Common Core Skills with Free DBQ iBook » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas | CCSS High School | Scoop.it

Critical thinking questions based on Common Core skills help students "think and write like a historian." It's a great resource for use in the classroom, and serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQ's.

 

This 18-page iPad DBQ guides students through the historian's process. "Stop and think" prompts encourage a deep reading of many notables of the Gilded Age - including Russell Conwell, Henry George, Andrew Carnegie and Stephen Crane. Visual source material includes posters, 1908 Sears Catalogue, a gallery of photographs by Lewis Hine and video of one of Edison's early Vitascope films.

3 Web 2.0 tools to help with Tier 2 and 3 words.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, April 23, 2013 9:17 PM

Academice vocabulary MUST be taught!  Kevin Feldman said he feels students should be taught academic language/vocab much like a ELL student should be taught english vocab.  This is especially important for students with IEPs!
