One Catholic School's Approach to Using Technology

An incredible testimony to the power of using technology to improve educational outcomes and moving students to the next level.  (cute kids in the vid, too)

 

At Mission Dolores Academy, teachers are able to individualize teaching, improve learning, spend more time with students, make use of small group learning and collaborate. Pretty amazing...

Wallwisher & Google Docs as Online KWL Charts (and much more)

Wallwisher & Google Docs as Online KWL Charts (and much more) | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it

Both Wallwisher and Google Docs are versitile, powerful, easy to use and free which enables teachers to use them frequently with their students and as a result, gain efficiencies in their classroom.  

 

For example, if your students have access to iPads or laptops, consider making Wallwisher part of your daily Do Now routine to get a feel for background knowledge prior to a difficult read, identify main idea in a Do Now excerpt, write a GIST statement, or propose a question about the text.

 

All student responses (text or images) are pinned on a Wallwisher bulletin board where they can be discussed, peer evaluated, or even posted on your class blog to be shared with other classes or parents.
