Plickers Response Cards

Plickers Response Cards | Tech Cadre Corner | Scoop.it

Plickers is a powerfully simple tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices

Cindy Powell's insight:

From Cindy's Links & Sidebar TCC 5-4

I learned about this site from two teachers at Scranton Elementary School in our district. Students get a card, you scan their answers with your Android (at the moment iOs App is in transition) device. The website allows you to print cards, but you can get some durable ones at Amazon. Very cool and easy.

Lessons Worth Sharing | TED-Ed

Lessons Worth Sharing | TED-Ed | Tech Cadre Corner | Scoop.it
Use engaging videos on TED-Ed to create customized lessons. You can use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube.
Cindy Powell's insight:
From Inviting Ted to Your Class TCC 6-3 Summer
TED Talks have been around for upper level students, but now TED offers tools to teachers for lessons and you can tweak lessons others have already done. The grade level is much lower for these. 
Or you can apply to start a TED Ed Club for student production.
Thanks to Nola-rae Cronan for her willingness to share from her 4T Virtual Conference session over the weekend.

20-Time In Education Inspire. Create. Innovate.

20-Time In Education  Inspire.  Create.  Innovate. | Tech Cadre Corner | Scoop.it
This site is the resource for educators interested in implementing 20 Time (also known as the 20% Project) in their classrooms.
Cindy Powell's insight:
From Cindy's Links TCC 6-2
This is a blog about fostering learners' initiative to do something real with part of their class time (20%). Ideas from several different age levels try the concept of allowing students to follow their hearts and learn something they love. The process of research, creation, presentation/sharing, with class and the real world is what is graded. The subject matter may be within the standards required of the content, but may not always be. 
Explanations, illustrations, and a list of inspirations are all part of the blog.

Cindy Powell's insight:

From Sidebar Alert TCC 6-2

It has come to the attention of the Discus Office that the current statewide username and password for home access to the Discus resources has been published on Internet webpages and has led to unauthorized access to Credo Reference.
