In the Classroom

Utilize the free curriculums offered on this site to teach students (and yourself) about the proper use of copyright. If you are unable to download the videos, this site recommends viewing the videos using View Pure, reviewed here, to remove all of the annoying "extras" included with YouTube videos. As you teach lessons and ask students to brainstorm ideas or compare and contrast information, use a graphic organizer tool such as Popplet, reviewed here, to create and save visual displays of students' ideas that include both text and images. Ask students to include a link to their Popplet organizer on Seesaw, reviewed here, along with original drawings, recordings, or other materials created during your unit. As a final project, extend learning by asking students to create a tutorial about copyright based upon their knowledge. Provide a variety of resources for creating the tutorial as a way to differentiate learning. Examples of some tools to include are Book Creator, reviewed here, or Adobe Spark Video Creator, reviewed here, or create an infographic using Canva Infographic Maker, reviewed here.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from July 2020, opens in Adobe Connect. It's fast! It's fun! It just keeps getting better! Learn how to elevate the use of Flipgrid, a free social learning platform that amplifies student voice, and bolsters creativity as learners record short, authentic videos based on your topics. Find instructional inspiration in FlipgridAR, Whiteboard Mode, Flipgrid Shorts, Screencasting, and more! Basic knowledge of Flipgrid is recommended.

Plan for the use of Flipgrid in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
