Our Digital Year In Review!

The Best of the Best From Our 2013-14 Year!!!

It has been a fantastic year of digital learning for students at Oak Hills Elementary!

There have been a few digital duds along the way, but overall, new digital tools have given students new opportunities to research, create, collaborate and share! We are grateful for these wonderful iPad and web apps! This flyer is a list of our favorites with a link to a blog post explaining how we used the app/tool!


There are quite a few apps and web tools that are not in the newsletter list that I would like to celebrate by mentioning here.

- You will notice that several of our "work horse" tools are absent from this list. Google Drive, Sites and Blogger are tools that we couldn't live without!!

- iMovie, Keynote and Pages are paid iPad apps that represent the backbone of our digital work!

- I have also not included the many coding apps that we used this year. There are so many good options that are all great! Kodable, Hopscotch, Botlogic, and Scratch represent a few that we tried and found really helpful for learning coding!

- Our district is launching Schoology in the fall. This learning management system (LMS) will likely be a real game changer for our digital lessons. Look for more on that in future blog posts!

- Also absent from this list are digital tools that I found especially helpful for managing and delivering lessons from behind the scenes. Smore, the web tool used to make this flyer is especially helpful for sharing. Blendspaces is a web tool that is helpful for delivering lessons with web content. Slidely makes great slideshows. Pixlr is my "go to" image and collage editor. Flipsnack is a paid web tool that has been great for taking student Google presentations and turning them into eBooks.
