Pear Practice is a gamified learning experience that promotes collaborative learning and independent practice using tools provided by Pear Deck, reviewed here. Use Pear Practice to create learning experiences or choose from the large selection of activities in the practice sets. When creating a set, Pear Practice allows members to create multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, drawing, and drag-and-drop questions. Once a practice set is chosen, create an assignment for individual practice or start a live practice by choosing one of the game mode options. Options within live practice activities allow educators to set time limits for questions, allow guest students not in Pear Deck classrooms, and create random groups. Students join activities using the unique code or by sharing a link. When sharing as an assignment, specify a start and ending date and assign an accuracy goal for students to achieve. Students can retake the assignment as often as needed to meet the accuracy goal. Many activities in Pear Practice's public library correlate to Common Core Standards.

Use Propello's library of materials to supplement your current science curriculum by creating customized learning paths for students. Differentiate content based on student's abilities and interests. Propello's built-in assessments provide real-time feedback on student understanding and use that data to adapt instruction as needed. In addition to sharing activities on this site, engage students in science instruction using interactive simulations such as those found at phET, reviewed here. Instead of administering a paper and pencil test at the end of your teaching unit, enhance student learning by asking them to demonstrate learning by creating videos using Animoto, reviewed here or interactive presentations made with Genially, reviewed here.

This document shares information and recommendations for educators to consider and implement as part of their understanding and use of artificial intelligence (AI) in education. The document includes chapters on ethics, a sense of AI, teaching and learning, formative assessment, and more. The final chapter consists of a series of recommendations based on two guiding questions in the document: What is our collective vision of a desirable and achievable educational system that leverages automation while protecting and centering human agency? On what timeline will we be ready with the necessary guidelines and guardrails along with convincing evidence of positive impacts so that we can ethically and equitably implement this vision widely?

tag(s): artificial intelligence (115), professional development (388)

In the Classroom

Include this document as part of your research and understanding of how to address the use of AI in education. Consider including the document as part of your professional development activities within your school or district. For example, use Fiskkit, reviewed here to begin discussions virtually. Begin by adding the link to Fiskkit to create a shareable document that allows you to add highlights to important text, rate or tag information, and discuss the contents virtually. Create a professional library of information related to AI using Padlet, reviewed here. Include professional articles, classroom use suggestions, and online AI tools in your Padlet.

Students can also engage in peer discussion by comparing their responses and explaining their reasoning. Promote critical thinking, collaboration, and applying knowledge beyond the classroom by using Letsfind to design collaborative projects or opinion polls. Divide students into groups and assign them a real-world problem or scenario related to the topic. Each group can create a poll to gather opinions or propose solutions.

This seven-lesson curriculum uses primary source documents to teach students about the efforts of individuals and groups, from colonial times through the present, working to ensure the ideals of the Declaration of Independence with a focus on civil rights issues. Beginning with the Declaration of Independence and ending with current times, each lesson includes objectives, links to resource materials, and extension activities. Free registration is required to access all materials in the lesson plans. In addition, registration allows members to save their favorite activities to a personal library, share a link to your LMS (Learning Management System), and add lessons to custom playlists.

tag(s): 1700s (36), 1800s (73), 1900s (73), 20th century (61), bill of rights (28), civil rights (198), declaration of independence (15), martin luther king (43), primary sources (117), slavery (76)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save these lessons to supplement your current American History curriculum. Each lesson includes links to primary source documents; use these resources to find materials not typically available in a broader curriculum. Engage students in the lesson activities and introductory essays using Pear Deck, reviewed here, to create interactive presentations that include guiding questions, videos, and formative assessment questions. Extend learning by asking individual students or groups to present their concluding analysis as a multimedia presentation with their peers. For example, Lesson 1 includes six questions for the concluding analysis activity. Assign a question to six different groups of students and ask them to share their responses through a video presentation created with Adobe Express Video Maker, reviewed here, or as a website created with Google Sites, reviewed here.
