LibreTexts is a bonanza for AP and teachers of gifted students.

Choose resources from LibreTexts for use in any classroom to supplement current materials. As part of career-planning activities, ask students to browse through topics that interest them. Encourage students to collaborate with others with similar career interests, both in the classroom and globally. Extend learning by suggesting that students participate in Ted-Ed Clubs, reviewed here. These Clubs allow participants to share in global meetings with peers that have a common interest. As students learn more about their chosen field, encourage them to interact with members of your community to ask questions and perhaps job shadow as a way to understand the career through personal experience. If using course materials and textbooks found on LibreTexts, this is the perfect opportunity for students to ask clarifying questions from their mentor. Enhance learning by making students the experts. Ask them to present their career findings using a multimedia tool like Sway, reviewed here, to share the information learned with peers.

This YouTube Channel, created by a technology specialist, contains short tutorial videos for educators on how to use a variety of free technology tools. Browse through the channel to find tips on using Flipgrid, Google Classroom, Twitter, and much more. If you are looking for tips on a specific tool, choose the Playlists link to find videos sorted by individual technology tools. Most videos run less than two minutes long, making them perfect for finding valuable information without taking much time.

tag(s): professional development (229), tutorials (48)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site for your use and for student use when using popular technology tools. Even better, use this site as a model for your students to become the experts and create their own video tips for technology tools or any classroom topic that needs additional guidance. Begin with assessing students' prior knowledge on use of a classroom tool, for example, Google Docs. Start with a very simple polling tool like UpDwn, reviewed here, to ask questions and find out how comfortable students are with the different Docs and features available. Use the information learned from the poll to motivate students to share their knowledge with others, specifically with tips for working with less familiar parts of the documents. Ask students to share their explainer videos using My Simpleshow, reviewed here, and post to your class webpage. Many times students know much more about technology than adults; use this information to your school and community's benefit by sharing student explainers on your school website. Be sure to include a comment section for community members to add ideas for explainer videos that they can use in their everyday routines when working with technology.

Technology offers teachers many management tools for classroom procedures, communication, design of the classroom, and more. This collection highlights what we call "Teacher Utilities." These are any tools that make the job of the teacher slightly easier to manage. Some examples of tools in this collection include timers, learning management systems, lesson plan builders, classroom design tools, and many more. Remember our "In the Classroom" suggestions give you ideas about how to use these tools in your classroom.
