EdPuzzle allows you to add interactive questions into videos and track student progress as they work through them. Upload videos from YouTube, or even better, create your own videos and post them on EdPuzzle for effective, asynchronous delivery of content. In this session, we’ll walk through a brief overview on setting up EdPuzzle, best practices for online use (including how to record your own videos on Screencastify), and Q&A.
Impactful Technology Use
Create. Read. Publish. Book Creator is one of the easiest ways to get your students creating rich artifacts of learning. Whether it is a book, comic, or poster, it’s never been easier to add images, photos, and audio to show what you know. It’s a simple way to make digital books online – on Chromebooks, PCs, iPads, or tablets.
Create in a snap! Adobe spark is a creative way to communicate just about anything in a few clicks. In this session, we’ll dig into some creative ways teachers and students can show what they know. We’ll highlight several creative platforms that are perfect for online learning and get hands-on with a couple of options you can use tomorrow. Focus tools include Adobe Spark.
This full-day session is for teachers that are ready for a deeper dive using iPads and Seesaw in the classroom. Stations and blended learning already play a significant role in the K-3 classroom, so let’s use the iPads to create rich student-directed stations using the apps you have already learned about. Focusing on lesson design, creating a teacher resource library, and utilizing the advanced features of Seesaw, this session builds on the knowledge and comfort gained from the sessions listed above and is for the intermediate to the advanced level teacher.
This full-day science/social science session begins by providing instruction, modeling, and workshop time using Seesaw to create student portfolios, to send and receive student work, to record students reading and writing, app smashing, (using multiple apps together and then turn in the work through Seesaw). The afternoon will include Flipgrid to help explain a concept or topic and publish projects through sharing in a grid. We will finish with an introduction to Google’s My Maps to provide geographic context for people, places, cultures, literature ties.
