If you’ve been an educator for a long time, you may be committed to a certain method of teaching. Challenge yourself to try something new! Whether it’s adopting a new technology, trying out something from a Doubleshot, or something you come up with on your own, give it a try. Embrace a life-long commitment to learning...why not try something new that can help both you AND your students?
Shot one: Jeopardy!
JeopardyLabs (https://jeopardylabs.com/) is an easy, free web tool that lets you or your students create Jeopardy!-style games without using a fancy template.
Fun Fact: Although it’s never happened, the maximum winnable sum in a single game is $566,400. A single contestant would have to sweep both boards, find all three Daily Doubles – in the top tier and at the end of each round – make them true Daily Doubles and then wager everything in Final Jeopardy!
Shared memories made easier with Google Photos
Best of all, there’s no setup—select photos, make an album and then send the link off to whomever you’d like. And it works no matter what device your friends and family are using— tablet or laptop, Android or iPhone.
