Improving Student Listening and Five Categories of Tech Tools - Kristin Mulder - Shared screen with speaker view
You understand me!! I love how you talked about the plethora of things out there. I need a practical way to decide what to use.
I agree with you Stephenie
OH YEAH!!!!! Email Nightmare
I LOVE Canva!!!!
There is a way for nonprofits to apply for a nonprofit Canva account for FREE
Is there a service whereas you could send the newsletter both as an email and text?
Or would it be a text with a link to the newsletter?
As a reference point, if you liked the way the new EverLearning looked, Shane did the layout in Canva.
Thank you Shane, it looked wonderful!
Good to know. It was excellent. Did you send as a text to anyone? Could you?
Gloria, I make class flyers on Canva and then send them via text as a picture. I'm not sure if that answers your question?
Gloria, we would need to build a database of mobile numbers in order to be able to text the newsletter out to everyone. Not sure how feasible that is for SDALL, but it might be possible to connect with students.
Is there a way to annotate/whiteboard with Google Meet?
Jamboard doesn't require a physical board?
Rhonda Lipp is great with jamboard
As a parent, I wish all my kids teachers used the same LMS
We talked about that in our zoom group for parents who were struggling. They needed a class to know how to understand the system the teacher was using for each kiddo.
Stephanie...I agree. I think I am fairly tech savie and we had one teacher that told us an app to download and use...We never figured out how to use it and never talked to another parent who was able to use.
Some of them will let others change the documents. Best to make a share folder and keep your files safe
Lynn, I always make a duplicate folder to share and keep a "parent" folder that houses my originals so that I can keep them safe!
Yes Lynn...You need to watch your share settings. I agree with Becki about having a "parent" file
Yes Becki, that is why I mentioned it, just so everyone realizes that it can be done
My union has its own LMS and you can copy the slide shows but you can't edit them on the LMS
I like that idea. It is not so overwhelming.
Hi Erik, I did a check to see which programs allow changes to the files when I was learning before I put the files up.
So I could archive a list instead of sending each link
That's really smart, Lynn. Saves you heartache later!
Yeah I can download the power point and edit it to share with my students in the Google Classroom but the students can also go to the LMS on their own and take classes and can't edit them.
That is good, you can make the changes you need, but can still keep the presentation from being changed.
I just wished more students would participate
Erik...If you figure out the answer to that one, you could get rich on the speaker circuit.
I agree Kim, but as a trade instructor at Job Corps these students already didn't like traditional studies. They are more hands on.
That would definitely be like my oldest two boys. We were lucky that my oldest sons instructor gave several options for completing their end of year assignments. My son picked to build a project where he recorded through out the large project. He also taught is youngest brother to use some tools and then he marketed and sold the project to earn funds for the Ag program. Much more successful than writing reports and famous chemists.
Well that is excellent!
I'm taking a class right now that uses Flipgrid. It's nice to be able to hear the reflections of the other participants as I work through the modules.
Reflection is essential. I am glad you are addressing it.
It takes practice to make a good, useful Google Form, but it is a great tool. My best advice is to have someone else use your form before you publish it to help you troubleshoot any issues.
I hear that school age kids have now figured out how to get the answers from the Google Forms....so creative/devious
I like the grading piece. I used it for the FEMA classes and it saved a lot of time, then you knew they were ready for the exam.
Is it free for outside of K-12? Socrative?
Socratic sounds very useful!
We use Kahoot!
Kahoot is fun - not too childish in our experience
Thank you for ALL the information!
Kristin, I wish we had another hour to keep talking! Thanks so much. This was great, and very helpful!
Thank you. A lot to process! But good information.
Delicious session...thanks Kristin!!
Thanks Kristin, another very informative presentation
