What's New in D64 Instructional Technology (April 8, 2016)


If you haven’t tried Google Classroom before, I highly recommend it. You can create assignments as Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, etc., and share them with your students without worrying about sharing permissions, students naming the docs incorrectly, or Hapara sharing glitches. You can also post reminders and links to other websites for your students in the Classroom stream, grade and return assignments without any paper, and give/receive feedback online. This site is a great resource for setting up classes and assignments. There is also a D64 presentation here. Let me know if you’d like to meet to set up Google Classroom.

Who to Follow on Twitter?

If you're on Twitter (or thinking of jumping in) and looking for other educators to follow, Rachel Labuz at Washington discovered this great resource of suggested teacher tweeters. If you are new to Twitter and want to know more about getting started, look at this presentation. I'd also be happy to meet in person to help you get started.
