tag(s): olympics (52), south america (40)

In the Classroom

Share one fact a day with students as you count down toward the beginning of the 2016 Summer Games, August 5 to 21, 2016. Use this information as a learning center and have students conduct research to learn more about the Olympic Games and Brazil. Challenge students to create a daily annotated image including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here, with information gathered from their research. Have students create timelines (with music, photos, videos, and more) using Capzles, reviewed here, to show the training process of Olympic athletes. Create a quick poll (with no membership required) using SurveyRock, reviewed here, to find out how many students plan on watching the Olympics, guesses for the number of medals earned by your country, or their choice for potential host cities. Alternatively, if your school starts after the Olympics are over, use these facts for a discussion of the Olympics. Create a quick poll (with no membership required) using SurveyRock, reviewed here, to find out how many students watched the Olympics. Those students could then share with their peers what they learned from the Rio Olympics using any of the tools suggested above.

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 (153), 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.

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 (68), social networking (109)

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!

tag(s): digital storytelling (154), ebooks (39)

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 (55), quiz (84), quizzes (104)

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.

Autistic support and behavior support teachers will find this tool useful and easy to use for reinforcement and tracking. Gamify your class using badges as reward levels. Challenge students to progress through different achievement levels by providing badges along the way. Share student login information with parents so they can track progress and accomplishments at home. Be sure to keep the login information yourself, just in case students misplace it.

In the Classroom

Create a Triventy quiz as a tool for checking prior knowledge or making a quick assessment. Have students answer exit questions or see what students remember from the previous day. Use for formative assessment to identify misconceptions that students may have at the start of a unit. ESL/ELL and world language teachers could use this for vocabulary practice and take advantage of the many different language options. Have students create quizzes with characteristics of story characters for classmates to see which character they are most like.

In the Classroom

Use this site to work with PDF files in many ways. If you need just a page or two from a large PDF file, perhaps a worksheet to send home to an absentee student, easily extract it to send. Combine class projects received as individual PDFs to create a complete class book by merging all files. Combine several lessons into one whole unit by merging files. Make combined PDFs available as downloads from your class web page so students "get it all together." Teachers at all grades can use this tool, and older students may find it handy for their own use.

Quizlet Live is a classroom quiz game for groups created by the makers of Quizlet, reviewed here. Follow directions to create and share a quiz set and assign to student teams. At least six students are needed to create a Quizlet Live game. When students receive the code and log in, they find other team members and begin competing. Accuracy is encouraged over speed, providing a wrong answer will send teams back to start from the beginning of the quiz.

In the Classroom

Use Quizlet Live to introduce new topics or content, or as a review before testing. Quizlet Live would be an excellent tool for the start of the year to help students get to know each other, or use throughout the year to have students work with different students in cooperative learning activities.
