We haven't heard much back from our district in regards to student accountability. I teach 1st grade. Any suggestions?

Would Seesaw allow me to hit all those areas on the Readiness Quiz? I've heard that Google Classroom is best for grades 3-5 and Seesaw for grades k-2. Is that correct?

We had teachers PreK-12 put together non digiital work for students to pick up at the school. Those that did not could not come were delivered by the busses delivering food. We are a very rural district. We also have the items on our School Website to be downloaded. We do have single sign on Classlink with the school approved applications that students can click and be auto logged in. Some classes that are 7-12 and have everyone with access took devices home and are using the tools we use such as Microsoft office Teams, OneNote ect.

We had Seesaw on the earlier hours. It was great for younger kids. We will try and get a webinar on it scheduled for early next week. Or if you want to come on to the 4:00 session. Laurie Guyon will be the Ed Tech Doctor again and she is well versed in SeeSaw’

Lydia Adegbola

I asked this in another session, but since you are skilled in in Google, I figured I would ask. My students have access to Suite through the district. Would you recommend sticking to Google Meet or should I introduce Zoom?

Yes!

My school is going through the same predicament. Google Meet is already setup and easy to use, but seems to be lacking a lot of features that Zoom has.

There seems to be more host control over the people connecting to the web conference with Zoom and it allows you to share screens in more ways and can share a "white board" space where you can draw and write on.
