TRAILS is a free online, interactive student assessment using multiple-choice questions on a variety of information literacy skills based on 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th grade standards. This easy, flexible tool is for school librarians and teachers to identify strengths and weaknesses in the information-seeking skills of their students. TRAILS can be used for formative and summative evaluations in five category areas: Develop Topic, Identify Potential Sources, Use Search Strategies, Evaluate Sources and Information, Use Information Responsibly, Ethically, and Legally.

tag(s): assessment (100), digital citizenship (59), media literacy (58)

In the Classroom

Students can be evaluated in four separate grade-level tests. You must create accounts and new sessions to save student work and have it graded. Individual codes are assigned to students allowing teachers and students to review performance and teachers to generate reports. Questions have been aligned to the Common Core standards.

Your account is a personal education website called a Teaching Space whose URL you share with others. After logging in, use the Dashboard to navigate and easily manage all your Courses and Lessons. Mark courses with a tag so they will come up for anybody who visits your Teaching Space, or password protect your Lessons. Share with other teachers or students by sending Lessons and Courses via email. Download lessons as Word docs. Students can only interact via class discussions you set up and monitor in the lessons. As a simple learning management system, Cloudschool facilitates delivery of curricular content, and keeps you organized with your lessons and units. Find them easily next year!

Manage and reward classroom behaviors with Classroom Heroes. Students choose their superhero avatar and receive gold stars for positive behaviors. Instantly send messages to individual or groups of parents including images. Classroom Heroes' online portal offers parents access to their child's behavior, schedule, and attendance. This tool will become active in September 2016; get on their email list NOW for notification when it becomes active. Please be aware that Classroom Heroes falls under the FERPA laws for "directory information" and "educational records." Any school getting funds from the Department of Education (public schools) is required to disclose to parents and get written consent to use Classroom Heroes with their child.

tag(s): behavior (46), classroom management (135), DAT device agnostic tool (199), gamification (65), parents (56)

In the Classroom

Consider using this program to reward a group of the week. Award points for positive behaviors such as participation, helping others, creativity, hard work, or create categories yourself. Use Classroom Heroes for identifying behaviors and providing immediate feedback to students. Use this tool to help your unfocused students stay on task. Share this site with students on the first day of school as you go over class expectations and your behavior plan for your classroom. Use Classroom Heroes to offer positive feedback to parents and students.

Are you a regular education teacher with special education students mainstreamed into your classroom? Use Classroom Heroes to keep track of student behaviors privately, and send a report to special education teachers or parents. This tool could be invaluable to life skills, autistic support, gifted, or emotional support teachers who need to track the behavior of each of the students as part of an IEP/GIEP. Alternative ed programs may find this tool very useful, as well, even up through high school.

Comments

My students love this. They actually line up to mark their attendance by themselves on the interactive board. It's still in early development stage but it's already fun and engaging. Haris, , Grades: 0 - 12

Knowledge Maps provides a resource for community problem solving. Sign up using Gmail or FaceBook. First-time members are asked to choose a map. An introduction wizard will then come up and walk you through how to use Knowledge Maps, or you can decide to skip the intro. Then, start a map by posing a question or problem and invite friends and other community members to recommend resources. After receiving and reviewing resources, share with others as part of the Knowledge Maps community.

tag(s): bookmarks (60), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Knowledge Maps is an excellent way to narrow down resources for class projects and research taking away the overwhelming nature of Google searches. Create a Knowledge Map for students to share their favorite website for interpreting literature, finding solutions to math problems, or locating pictures for use in multimedia projects. Ask students to create a Knowledge Map that includes resources used on class projects. Create a Knowledge Map to embed on your class website with suggested books for reading. Use this site professionally to curate and share resources with coworkers. The ideas for using this tool are endless!

In the Classroom

Create books together as a class as you move through a unit or topic, adding images and ideas your students suggest. Use in a flipped classroom to deliver course information. Assign several student groups a different topic and have each group create their own multimedia versions as they learn more about the topic. Make a digital bookshelf of all the versions for all to use. Challenge your gifted students to enhance the "standard" class text with additional material they discover by going deeper and learning about related topics. In lower grades, create teacher-made ebooks for your young readers, perhaps adding audio of your own voice reading the text.

Votesy is a crowdsourcing voting platform. Quickly create a poll by text, video, or image to receive votes or comments. Create private or public polls or limit questions to certain demographics such as location or gender. Register for a free account and follow the simple prompts to create a survey. Choose from many options to personalize the poll such as allowing voters to change their mind, setting a deadline, or allowing others to add answer choices. Once finished, share your poll with social media links, URL, or embed into your website.

tag(s): polls and surveys (48), quiz (85), quizzes (97)

In the Classroom

Share polls on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start a new unit, asking questions about the material. Discuss in groups why students would choose a particular answer to uncover misconceptions. Use for daily quiz questions to check student understanding as a means of formative assessment. Use a class account to have student groups alternate to create a new poll for the next day. Place a survey on your teacher web page as a homework inspiration or to ask questions to increase parent involvement. Older students may want to include polls on their student blogs to increase reader involvement. Have students create polls to use at the start of project presentations. Use surveys to generate data for math class (graphing), during elections, or for critical thinking activities dealing with the interpretation of statistics. Use "real" data to engage students on issues and current events that matter to them.
