    Episode 64-ODNT Add Questions to Videos and Assess

    I have been off the air for a couple of months and I have a line up of podcasts.  I also have finally gotten “in the flow” so to speak, with the new teaching assignment I asked for and was given. Along with my HS music classes, I am teaching STEAM to gr. 3-5 using Project Lead The Way; a great curriculum with a lot of resources.  I will talk more about that later.  This podcast is about online resources that allow you to insert questions or audio content.  You can create assignments or mini-lessons or you can have your students do the same.  A great way to create a meaningful learning experience.

    Video is a great way to engage students.  However, it can be even better for delivering content and assessing understanding.  I have used several different tools to do this but find myself going back to one or two.  I just got used to them, you should try out a few and see what would work for you and your students.

    Flipgrid

    Playposit

    EdPuzzle

    I did some research and found a few more tools.  Richard Byrne, an awesome tech blogger and speaker (got to hear him at MACUL 2019), compiled the following list of tools.  You can read his blog here.  Here is a list, I have checked these out and they seem to offer not only some of the same features, but also the option to foster discussion in some cases.

    Spiral

    Vizia

    Moocnote

    Vialogues

    Tech treat-  Nearpod add-on for Google Slides Create a slide presentation and insert interactive slides to check for understanding or engage.  You present the slides through Nearpod’s site and information is from each time you present the content is stored on the Nearpod site.  I have had great experiences using this tool.  If you are 1:1 then this tool is a must for delivering interactive lessons.

    Episode 63 ODNT From Phone to Chromebook- my daily tech tools

    Episode 63 ODNT From Phone to Chromebook- my daily tech tools

    The past few epidsodes have been about student engagement, but this episode is about my engagement.  Each day I use the same tech tools, I have become more adept at using them as a result.  I use about 3 pieces of online software and try to incorporate 1 or 2 tools as they apply to my teaching.  This episode is about my regularly tech tools, whether on my phone or Chromebook.  Here are my primary tools:


    Chrome Browser (Phone and Computer/Chromebook)
    Google Slides (Chromebook, but sometimes my phone)*I use a presentation remote extension...sometimes
    Google Keep (Phone mostly)
    Google Drive (Phone and Compter/Chromebook)


    You will want to try out using Keep.  Take a pic on your phone using keep and add it to a Slide on your Computer/Chromebook.  I like using this at the end of class for many reasons.

    This weeks tech treat has endless opportunities for students to learn about the environment.  That is kind of a weak description really.  Take some time and check out Google Arts and Culture’s Hidden Worlds of National Parks.  The pictures are incredible and the information is awesome.  Click the link, you won’t be disappointed.
