Tech Tools for the Classroom

A few awesome tools to look into for daily instruction! If you use videos in your classroom this tool if for you!! It allows you to insert questions at certain points in the video, makes the video lesson interactive, even keeps the kids from moving on until they answer. Username is done with the students' google accounts. Very user friendly! Just like Kahoot! only students see the questions, at random if chosen, on their own device. Has a homework mode and tons of quizzes already made! We know this site as the virtual flash card and quiz creator. Now, try quizlet live. It is exciting, engaging, and a great tool for vocabulary. Quizlet live places the kids into groups and they each individually receive answer choices to match the questions. Is the answer in their hand or their partners? See an explanation here!

Over the next week or so, you may see me bouncing from class to class to observe. I'm trying to learn the school and what technology we have! This is non-evaluative and I'll do my best not to interrupt class time! :)
