60 WITH SAINT
Weekly Tech Update 10/19 to 10/23
No Notifications No Problem, No Dice From Go Guardian, and Turn In vs. Mark As Done
One of the great things about having a growth mindset is the ability to problem-solve. Check out what happens when colleagues collaborate. Jason Reynolds told me about a strategy he uses for his students to reach out for assistance. While sharing his strategy, it got my wheels turning.
Jason Reynolds posts a Google Form in his Google Classroom for his students to reach out for assistance. With the addition of the Form Notification add-on to his Google Form, he now receives an email every time a student has a question. Watch the tutorial below on Form Notifications.
Think about other ways that this could be utilized. Do you have students submitting back work? Make them fill out a Google Form indicating which assignment they are turning in. You will then receive an email so you do not have to sift through all the assignments looking for the students back work. Do you allow students to make corrections? The same concept, have them fill out a form so that you receive a notification email when the student submits.
No Dice From Go Guardian
I reached out to Go Guardian this past week at the request of several colleagues. They would like to be able to access and print a simplified version of the session summary email that they were receiving. Here is part of the reply I received from Go Guardian:
“GoGuardian is not an attendance-taking product and we would therefore not have any feature for displaying a one-page summary of all students and their activity. Sorry for any inconvenience that causes!”
You can print parts and pieces of sessions, but not an entire session. If you want to view your session then you are going to have to scroll left and right through that report. Sorry😟
Turn In vs. Mark As Done
Students will be shown the ‘Turn In’ when the teacher assigns a specific Google file(Docs, Slides, Sheets, or Drawings) to each student. There will also be a Turn In button within the Google file next to the share button.
Students will see the ‘Mark as Done’ option when they are given a collaborative assignment or another assignment that is assigned not using a Google file type.

Go Soap Box
Mrs. LaBarr recently used and learned about this platform called Go Soap Box and asked us to share it with you. Go Soap Box is a web-based platform that allows students to ask questions, contribute to a group discussion, take quizzes, participate in polls, and more. It's easy to get everyone involved, the students enjoy it, (In Mrs. LaBarr's case, the superintendents enjoyed it), and it's an easy way to implement formative assessment into your lessons.

Origins of 60 With Saint!
In case you didn't catch the initial 60 With Saint with Rich Czyz, watch it below. You will notice my very amateur and limited producing skills at the time! However, being a lifelong learner, I have learned how to significantly improve my production skills.
I am dropping this nugget because 60 With Saint maybe making a reappearance in the very near future with all new guests!
