In recent weeks, distance learning has taken over as the vehicle to continue teaching -- even when students and teachers aren’t together in a physical classroom. Join us as we explore Schoology, a virtual learning environment that allows you to create, manage, and share academic content with the students in your K-12 class. We’ll share some tips including setting up your class, inviting students and parents to your course page, and adding materials and instructions to get your remote learning Schoology classroom started!
Using Google Drive for the first time? This session will walk you through the most basic functionality of Google Drive from the first time signed in to creating your first folder and document. We will review how to create folders, documents, converting content and sharing settings.
Using the power of Google Classroom, teachers can continue productivity for students and keep instruction going. Students can access content, complete assignments, join into conversations, either synchronously or asynchronously. Along, with google Meet, teachers can keep students and parent up-to-date with assignments and announcements.
Discover how SMART Learning Suite Online could be used for Remote Learning. This session covers the features and functions that allow you to provide direct and indirect instruction to students at home, for homework or in a distance learning model.
Using videos in the classroom can be an exciting way to enhance engagement and differentiate learning. In order to effectively use videos in the classroom it's important to incorporate interactivity while watching, and support student learning by asking questions before, during and after videos. In this course you'll learn about some great online programs to build out your videos with questions, quizzes and other support material.
How can you make sure your students are fully understanding the videos and clips you are showing them? Yes, we use videos all the time in our classrooms. Our hope is that we not only increase student engagement, but student achievement as well. EDpuzzle allows teachers to customize a video with embedded questions, voice tracks, and notes. With this platform, you are always in the know of how your students are doing. Teachers can also trim videos for important content, permit scrubbing features and other viewing options, and integrate video assignments with Learning Management Systems such as Google Classroom and Edmodo. Join our curriculum specialists for an exciting and informative course on ways to take advantage of video in your classroom!
