What's Up in the Tech World

Finish Strong!

I hope all the mothers on staff had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know I did. I will be at Lower Campus Monday and Thursday and on Upper Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Are you looking for interactive and fun ways to review? Sometimes Kahoot is just a little too crazy for my taste but I am really finding Quizizz is a great choice. I have included a link below for those that might want to use Quizizz with Google Classroom. One VERY exciting feature, they have a profanity filter that filters out inappropriate words or names. There are several teachers who have used this but the one I know about is Emily Montgomery. I am sure she would love to tell you about her experience. There are pre-made quizzes available for many subjects.

Science teachers, I have included a link to an interactive demonstration of the water cycle. I thought it was really cool :)

I was excited this week to learn that I will be presenting a session on Symbaloo at the Google Apps for Education Summit in Florence on Junes 2nd and 3rd. If anyone is interested in more information, you can follow the link above to read more about it.
