Teachers can create and deliver classroom content online with this free, easy-to-use web application. As a teacher, staying organized can be a challenge. Keep all of your units and lesson plans in one place with Cloudschool. Students can access course content at any time via URL on any device without logging in. After creating an account, design courses with individual lessons using content you select and upload based on school standards. Add lessons, homework, assignments, even embed Google Docs and other content; then "publish" some, or all of the content. 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! While free for individuals, there is a charge for institutions.

tag(s): classroom management (129), teaching strategies (25)

In the Classroom

Watch the short videos on the landing page to see how Cloudschool works; once signed up, you will have access to the very complete Help section. Within each course, create and distribute text-based or multimedia lessons containing a variety of formats which may be embedded, including audio, video, PDFs, and worksheets. Add discussion questions to all Lessons for students to reply to within your course environment. Use toolbars at the top as main controls for each page for easy navigation and creation. The left-side navigation menu links to Courses, Lessons, Curriculum Lists, and Files. Helpful tips appear by hovering over buttons. Click into a Course to add a new Lesson, then choose a Template, or use the Create New Lesson button. A Plus button at the top center of the page adds text, images, audio, and video to your lesson. Include homework, student discussion, assignments, and assessments which students submit outside of the Cloudschool environment. Notifications are available. After creating lessons, use your Teaching Space to give large or small group in-class presentations. Consider putting a bookmark on classroom computers to the lesson the students are to work on. You could also share the lessons on your class website. Share lesson plans with colleagues and administrators. Cloudschool is useful for any teacher to organize content and deliver it easily to individual students in class or at home as part of blended or flipped classroom environments. No classroom management tools are available since students do not register.

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 (129), DAT device agnostic tool (192), gamification (63), parents (55)

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.

After receiving and reviewing resources, share with others as part of the Knowledge Maps community.

Knowledge Maps is an excellent way to narrow down resources for class projects and research taking away the overwhelming nature of Google searches.

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!

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 (47), quiz (85), quizzes (95)

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.

In the Classroom

Students can use Printing Press to demonstrate learning of any kind across grade levels and content areas. Instead of writing a boring research report, have your students create a professional looking newspaper or brochure! Math and science students can create posters explaining concepts they learned. Students can photograph experiments and write up labs. Use Printing Press for students to "report" out the important events in a book they read, or make a poster advertising it as a movie. Teachers can use this tool as a jump page to guide a lesson or upload images and write up examples of exemplary work to share with students to set expectations for completed products before beginning any project. The uses for this tool are wide open!

IMatrix assists inquiry-based instruction that aligns to skills embedded in the K-12 Common Core standards for English/language arts, math, science, and social studies. Resources gathered from many sites help teachers develop classroom materials that incorporate questioning, critical thinking, and problem-solving within the six steps of inquiry: Locating Information, Evaluating Information, Applying Information, Sharing Knowledge, and Reflecting on Learning. Search by subject, grade level, and/or standards. Results include standards, cross-curricular connections, assessments, college career readiness, and instructional strategies with resources. No registration required.

tag(s): digital citizenship (58), inquiry (37), literacy (102)

In the Classroom

This rich curricular tool will be useful for teachers of all grade levels and subjects looking for Common Core Standards instructional resources or how to teach research, especially through inquiry learning. Extra materials include documents to help teachers plan a research unit in the classroom and a "backpack" feature that allows search results to be saved, printed, and emailed during a single session. No registration required. Some results may be linked to Ohio-only online electronic databases, but many of the articles will be available to you in local public and school libraries. A stand-alone site found through a power button icon in the upper left corner will take you back to INFOhio which contains password protected Ohio-only content. This review is for the free and accessible resources only.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
