tag(s): bookmarks (60)

In the Classroom

Not ready to create your own bundles? Explore the site for ready-made bundles created by others for many topics. This site is not moderated, so it is best to explore on your own to locate bundles then share your appropriate findings. Share bundles on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Create bundles for any content or topic to share with students on your web page or blog. In primary grades, you can create bundles for different types of practice activities, even for non-readers. With older students, create a class account and allow students to add websites, images, tweets, and information to bundles, giving them the opportunity to curate and provide information on any subject. Talk about how to curate and decide which sites should be included and which ones excluded.

The Literacy Design Collaborative supports the development of literacy through a series of templates for use with text when writing. There are also templates for other subjects. Most templates address secondary levels; however, other offerings contain some elementary templates. Template tasks allow you to fill in the blank with learning skills addressed. When completed, you create and produce a high-quality assignment. Three collections are available by choosing the tasks link: the template task collection II, Common Core template tasks, and K-2 template tasks. Use links provided to view instructions and download templates in PDF format. Choose the modules link to view and download complete modules for instruction for English, Science, and Social Studies. Also available at the Literacy Design Collaborative is a series of videos demonstrating changing teacher practice and literacy. Most of the videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to school (or your meeting) "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

Are you looking to clean up your formative assessment process in your classroom? Laundry Day is a formative assessment strategy where students "clean up" what they don't know about a topic. Students select a laundry detergent (Tide, Gain, Bold, and Cheer). These will be their cooperative learning groups to improve, reinforce, or enrich their understanding of the lesson. Students select the Tide detergent if they feel the information is a tidal wave coming down on them. Gain is the detergent selected by students who understand the basics, but need more assistance. Students select the Bold detergent if they are confident with the material, but they have a few questions. Cheer represents the students needing enrichment activities for the unit of instruction. Each detergent is scaffolded for student success and represents a readiness level for the assessment. Students use their homework and previous assessments/activities to determine which detergent has the appropriate activities.

tag(s): assessment (104), classroom management (145), differentiation (48)

In the Classroom

Laundry day allows your students to take ownership of their learning. It also allows the teacher to move around the classroom to assist students and monitor engagement. Post the activities on your learning management site, blog, wiki, or website for students to easily navigate the different "detergents." Provide the learning opportunities online to allow the students to navigate through the different levels. They can work alone, in pairs, or in groups to promote collaboration. Link videos and resources for the students to access to enrich or support the material. For best results, you will want to use this strategy over and over so students become conversant with the terms and strategies.

Use laundry day as an activity to pre-assess your students as well. What detergent did they chose at the beginning of the unit? Students could write a blog post or send an email on the detergent they selected at the of the unit. Have students create blogs using Throwww (reviewed here). This site allows you to create "quick and easy" blogs to be used one time only. There is no registration necessary!

Exobrain is an easy to use brainstorming and mind mapping tool. Register using email and a password to begin creating a board with "nodes." Give the central node a name then drag your mouse to create additional nodes. Create links between nodes by dragging a line between them or remove links by hovering over the line and clicking the scissors. Free accounts allow for three cloud-based maps. Access using the unique url generated for each mind map. The introductory video requires Flash, the remainder of the site does not. Be aware: maps can be viewed publicly. Be sure to check your district policy on publishing student work online.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): mind map (24)

In the Classroom

Use this resource to map out a poem, story, or novel students are reading. Use in managing (and even color-coding) information in any content area. Assess prior knowledge with a class brainstorm. Use as a plan for projects to show all information and all steps for its completion. This would also be a great tool for group projects for your students or even in YOUR grad classes! Teachers in lower grades can create whole class maps together. Share the maps on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Since you can only create three maps for free, you might want to compare with other mind-mapping tools reviewed at the TeachersFirst Edge.

Find many easy to implement, brain-based ideas for supporting instruction in reading and math. The site contains easy to follow labels to different areas such as aesthetics, environment, reading, math, games, strategies, and the early years. Within each of those areas are choices to narrow down content. Find tips to help your ADHD students to focus. The site's author is a big proponent of using word walls in all curriculum areas, so there are many pictures and suggestions for how to use word walls in the classroom. Although not fancy and glitzy like many sites, this site is well worth a visit to find simple and practical suggestions for everyday classroom use.

Share using the social media links or download to your computer. Here is a (link to an example).

A tip: when creating your QR Code, you will see a link to "generate your image" on the last step. It will give you the options of "try again" or "next." Choose "next" to go to the final step. "Try again doesn't mean that your image wasn't created, it just gives you the option for personalizing the code differently before completing the process.

tag(s): qr codes (21)

In the Classroom

Create a QR code that directs to your class site or blog and include it on handouts for Back to School night. Create a QR code scavenger hunt for students, making a webquest more engaging. Add QR codes to documents for students to check their answers to questions. Expand knowledge of a topic by adding a QR code to a site that expands upon what is in the textbook. Create a data chart accessible via a QR code. Students access the data and manipulate the information. Have students create a book trailer or review and affix a QR code to the outside of the book. Students may be more apt to read a book that has been reviewed by another student. Make a display completely interactive with a QR code that describes the assignment, the process, the research, student's reactions and more! Add extra help information to any assignment that asks students to solve problems. Create an online help tutorial accessible via a QR code, and place the code beside a similar problem. Link directly to a Google Map. Place QR code contact information for you and your school on contact cards to give to parents. Attach QR codes to physical objects around the room to provide information about the object. Place the links in a newsletter using QR codes instead of a series of words that need to be typed. Be sure to search TeachersFirst resources for many other great ways to use QR codes in the classroom!

Sparky teaching's goal is to ignite classroom creativity, and they provide resources to help you get started. Check out the resources section for many online and downloadable posters and activities. Especially interesting is the "365 things that make you go hmmm..." portion. Find notes for teachers, today's big question, viewer responses, and archives of previous questions. Another great resource is the 10 word stories. Don't miss lots of wonderful reader-submitted stories. This site is sure to get your creative juices flowing! And the "site" doesn't want their name or headings starting with capital letters because they say they are not a title, but rather they are what they do in the classroom. Be aware: this site was created in the United Kingdom. You may notice some slight spelling/vocabulary differences. There are some items for sale on this site, but you can find free ideas and posters.

Display one of the 365 things that make you go hmmm... prompts on your interactive whiteboard. As students enter class, have the class use Postica (reviewed here), to create web-based sticky notes on a sticky board with responses. Demonstrate and share the 10 word stories with students then challenge them to make their own 10 word story to summarize classroom reading materials, books, math processes or tips, or any other classroom topic. Be sure to check out the articles and reviews on the site for more creative thinking ideas. Use the 12 Days of Christmas activity and worksheets to sneak in some math practice around the holidays!

Follow an interactive timeline of the history of education beginning with Plato in 0427 BC through the present. Slide the bar through the years to view developments in education. (Hint: small purple dots above the year indicate that there is content in that time period.) Each entry includes a small pop-up with an image, an introduction to the event, and a link to more information. The sources are available at the very end of the timeline as a link from the last "event." While this site is amazing, our reviewers did notice a few minor spelling errors.

This is worth some time to scroll through and watch the evolution of education throughout time. Share during professional development with other staff members. Especially interesting is the large number of events in recent time compared to just a few decades ago! Share with older students and brainstorm a list of what the class believes will be "next" in education. As your class talks about cultures, include this for discussion about the role of education in a culture.

Build and view online courses created from pieces of YouTube videos using Teachem. Teachem "courses" include review questions and more to supplement the video you build. Browse current offerings by date added, number of flashcards, title, or categories from abs to YouTube. Create your own courses after registering with the site, add the YouTube url and type in questions. Teachem presents the video without YouTube's usual clutter, too! Courses can be public or private for only those with the link. See the FAQ link to answer your "how do I do this?" questions. If your district blocks YouTube, then this tool may be a bit more challenging. Before you spend too much time preparing a "course," test some of those available on Teachem to see whether they will open at school. If so, you could always view the YouTube videos at home and create your "Teachem" presentation.

tag(s): test prep (96), video (268)

In the Classroom

Teachem is perfect for use in the "flipped" classroom. Create your own courses for students to view including notes and comments. Have students create their own Teachem videos to share information on any topic. There is no better way to learn, than to become the teacher! Browse and search for courses already created to use in your classroom to introduce or review any topic. Embed courses on your website or blog for students to access from home. Encourage students to share any helpful course they discover on Teachem as alternative presentations or review of the concepts you are studying in class. Learning support teachers might want to work together with small groups of students to prepare a review and self-test "course" before major tests, assuming you can find the appropriate YouTube videos to help.
