PowToon! Featuring: Ms. Nancy Johnson
Nearpod! Featuring: Mrs. Diana Kimberly
Animoto! Featuring: Ms. Pam Wong
Nearpod! (again!) Featuring: Mrs. Dana Schultz
Mrs. Schultz’s fifth-graders are using Nearpod for lessons about Saltwater Ecosystems on their electronic devices. Students were using either classroom Nexus 7 tablets or their own devices. Now that you have seen us mention Nearpod twice, I am sure you all want to learn about it. Please see the Kat Tech Calendar for upcoming trainings on this topic.
New Websites We Love!
Nearpod (obviously) - if you have devices, this site will change your life
Flippity - this site allows you to turn a google spreadsheet into flashcards. These flashcards can also be accessed on tablets.
KeepVid - Did you ever need to keep that youtube video? Now you can. Go to KeepVid, paste the link for your video and you will be given multiple options to download the video. It also works with other video sites like vimeo.
