MiGoogle Pre-Conference 2016: Presented by Jennifer Bond

Welcome to MiGoogle Pre-Conference

Thank-you so much for coming to this session! Here's a bit about my background. I am a third grade teacher at Glengary Elementary in Walled Lake. The majority of my teaching experience has been in 3rd grade, however, last year I taught 5th grade. I love integrating technology throughout the curriculum to engage students and get them excited for learning! In addition to infusing tech, I love bringing the maker mindset into my teachings too! I have been a team manager for Destination Imagination for 18 years, have been a Camp Invention Director for 2 years, and I have been a part of an Imagination Chapter through the Imagination Foundation. I love presenting at conferences, and I look forward to working with you today at MiGoogle!

Audio Recording and Editing Tools

Sound Cloud: This is an easy tool to record student projects, create songs, and share easily!

Audacity: You can download this on your device and create/edit your recordings.

Vocaroo: A super simple voice recording tool.

Other tools: Click here to find more tools from the blog, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Here is another site that showcases several other sound tools.

Here's an article about how you can add audio to Google Slides.

Video Tools

Screencastify: An easy Chrome extension for creating screencasts. I have used it to record a read aloud, as it allows you to have a webcam corner video too, in addition to recording the screen. An example can be found below The BFG being read.

Here is a how-to on using Screencastify to add audio to Google Slides.

You Tube Video Editing: Add annotations, speech bubbles, split videos, combine videos, etc.

We Video: A simple video recording with a Classroom subscription ($249)

Combined Tools

Padlet: Allow children to create a virtual bulletin board with photos, links, etc. Think of this as a place you can have kids post their projects, sound files, videos, etc. This way your projects can be displayed all together. My students love typing up reading responses and taking photos of their books. You can also use this to have them do a photo hunt.

Powtoon: Create neat animated cartoons. (Limited free)

Buncee: A super cool site that allows you to add videos, text, stickers, backgrounds, etc. to a slide deck. :)

Voki: A talking avatar. There is also a Voki Classroom.
