Are you looking for some of the best content on the web? Use Mix to browse and search for information based on your interests and those of like-minded people. Mix imports content from news sources, popular blogs, and additional world-wide resources. The more you browse and save material, the more Mix will refine its understanding of what you like. Create collections by adding information found on the site or by keeping links to web content found as you browse the Internet. Use Mix's web browser extension to save URL's to collections with just one click. When ready to share your collection, use the share icon to copy the link, send via email, or share on social media.

tag(s): bookmarks (53), evaluating sources (16), social networking (92)

In the Classroom

Use Mix for your personal research and professional development. Visit Mix occasionally to find new ideas and new sites for teaching. Create and share collections of websites to share with students for use with research projects. For example, as you prepare to teach a science unit on plants, create a collection containing news articles, explainer sites, and online games for students to use as a virtual resource for supplementing classroom lessons. Include documents, slide presentations, and more from your Google Drive for student access from any device. Another use of Mix is to create collections when teaching students how to evaluate online resources. Create a collection from a variety of different resources based on the same topic and ask students to reflect upon the validity of the information and the source. Ask them to use a presentation tool like Sway, reviewed here to share their findings by including links to the information along with supporting evidence. Another idea for using Mix is for students to create collections to share as part of multimedia projects as a virtual bibliography. In addition to websites shared, ask them to add their written work, images, or other creations. Mix is an excellent tool for creating an online portfolio for students to use when applying to college. Show students how to easily create new collections using their work, but personalized to individual college applications.

Pindex is Pinterest for educators. In addition to saving and curating resources, educator accounts offer educators the ability to assign boards to students along with quizzes. Create boards then add content by using the + button to add video, links, documents, images, and more. Use the site's search feature to find boards created by other users, then save any desired content to your account. Assign boards to students then track progress under the quiz feature. Students earn "Internet gold" awards as they complete assignments.

tag(s): assessment (123), bookmarks (53), quizzes (92), social networking (92), Teacher Utilities (78)

In the Classroom

Because Pindex is specifically for educators, this site makes it easier to find and save information for classroom use. Collaborate with other teachers in your building or subject area to create boards with teaching resources. Take advantage of Pindex's quiz feature to create boards for any topic and assess student learning. Use Pindex as part of flipped learning lessons or as a learning center. Extend learning after students complete quizzes using Synth, reviewed here, to have students discuss information shared on the site. Synth is similar to Twitter, but is an audio resource. Have students share a short audio response related to their learning, then Synth threads all student discussions to create a podcast to share.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Take advantage of this free online tool to guide your district toward planning and implementing your technology plan. Share with administrators as an option for use with your technology committee. As you gather and share information with your community and staff to use in your guide, consider using a collaboration tool like Padlet, reviewed here. Use Padlet to share technology options with the community and gather comments. Create another Padlet to gather comments and ideas from staff. When considering more complex ideas during your planning, use FlipGrid, reviewed here, to create and share video discussions. Use Flipgrid's MixTape feature to build a "mix" of responses to highlight and share. Help build community support for your technology plan by creating ongoing podcasts using Anchor, reviewed here. Share podcasts with your community throughout the planning process to discuss ideas, update listeners on your goals and progress, and to compare and contrast options considered for your plan.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from May 2019, opens in Adobe Connect. Are you looking for ways to make your formative and summative assessments more effective? Join us to learn how to use Flipgrid, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Sway, to create authentic assessments throughout your units. Whether it's formative or summative assessment, finding ways to measure students' understanding effectively is crucial to ensure student progress and future success. In this session, we will explore how you can use free Office and Windows products to create better formative and summative assessments that reliably measure student learning, promote critical thinking, and help students develop real-world skills. Participants will: 1. Explore the meaning of the term "authentic assessment"; 2. Evaluate several formats of assessment for their usefulness to assess student learning; and 3. Identify a variety of assessment methods and plan for their use in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
