SCHS EdTech Update

End of the Year Tips and Tricks

Summer Tips

  • If you are looking for interactive simulations for your classroom, check to see if they are available in HTML5. It's a reliable way to tell if the simulation will work on the Chromebooks.
  • Look for the red "Sign in with Google" button on websites. That means students can create accounts on the site without having to create a new username/password.
  • Find YouTube channels you can follow. If you already use some go-to YouTube videos created by other teachers, check to see if they have a channel that provides a library of videos. They can become like "co-teachers" in your classroom.
  • Try creating some of your own videos for your classroom! Check out this list of video creation tools to help you find one that fits your needs.
