45+ Google Tips for Teachers and Students - Shake Up Learning

45+ Google Tips for Teachers and Students - Shake Up Learning | Tech tools for FSL | Scoop.it
The Shake Up Learning community never fails to amaze me! They are always sharing new ideas, lesson plans, tips, tricks, and asking insightful questions. This week was no different.


Each week I pose a new question to the Shake Up Learning community on Facebook. (Join here!)

This week I asked the group to share one of their favorite Google tips, and you know what, they didn’t disappoint! They shared over 45 different Google tips! (Link to original post.)

The group shared so many amazing ideas, tips, tools, features, and keyboard shortcuts, that I knew I had to compile these for easy reference and sharing.

300+ Digital Tools Crowdsourced by Educators #LT8Keys - Thomas C. Murray @thomascmurray

300+ Digital Tools Crowdsourced by Educators #LT8Keys - Thomas C. Murray @thomascmurray | Tech tools for FSL | Scoop.it

"Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to run a number of sessions for teachers, which started as sessions entitled, “Tools for Engagement.” For the session, I’d model a handful of tools for efficiency, management, and engagement, and then give participants time to explore and then crowdsource their favorite digital tools as well. Upon leaving the collaborative session, all participants would leave with a copy of the creation we had developed together.


This past week at FETC, I had the opportunity to do this session again, alongside about 100 educators from all over the country. Upon completion of the session, a participant asked, “Can we share this document with those we work with?” My response? “Better yet, share it with every educator that you know that can benefit.”

In an effort to try and practice what I preach, I want to share the crowdsourced resource with YOU ALL as well. So, here it is…"

3 Awesome Comic Strips Creation Tools for Students - Educator's Technology | Tech tools for FSL | Scoop.it
Comic strips can be a great way to engage students in a wide variety of multimedia enriched learning activities. Using group work, you can assign each group with a writing or digital story telling project to work on using comic strips. Finished products can be shared with the whole class or , in case you have one, embed them in your class website. There several web tools to use in this regard. Below are 3 of our favourite ones.

Pedagogy...Technology...Which Should Come First?

Pedagogy...Technology...Which Should Come First? | Tech tools for FSL | Scoop.it

"...using technology does not necessarily make a teacher effective. I am going to repeat that, because I want this to be very clear: technology is not pedagogy. I actually learned that lesson the hard way. I spent my first two months as a teacher building a paperless, hybrid-online, flipped classroom using Moodle, and marching students through standards by having them click through links and complete digital quizzes and activities."

Short videos from YouTube and other sources can be quite helpful in introducing topics to students and or reinforcing concepts that you have taught. Watching the video can be enough for some students, it's better if we can call students' attention to specific sections of videos while they are watching them. The following tools allow you to add comments and questions to videos that you share with your students.

I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

How to Use Google Drive for Descriptive Feedback Using Sharing Options - TapintoTeenMinds | Tech tools for FSL | Scoop.it

"The consistent and effective use of Descriptive feedback in classrooms has become a popular strategy due to its positive influence on student learning. Based on the research of John Hattie, my colleague, Jason Lynn has given me an in-depth look at Hattie’s work and how we can use it in the classroom.

 

Although the research suggests that providing students with descriptive feedback has the largest influence on student learning, it can be difficult for teachers to find more time to provide this meaningful assessment as learning and assessment for learning tool with regularity."
