Description

 

Classroom is designed to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. It allows the teacher to make google documents for each student. Drive folders help to keep students and teachers organized for each assignment or quiz.  Real live feedback can be given to students by teachers.

 

Interactive classroom response system which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy.

 

Creating engaging lessons with web resources in five minutes or less.

 

Classroom clickers without the clicking allowing automatic student feedback.  Plickers let you poll your students for free.

 

Skype

Skype is great for classroom-classroom collaborations or for video conferencing with a guest author, expert or community member who can't come to your classroom physically. Skype is a great way to communicate with classrooms in other parts of the world.

Weebly

Weebly is a great way to communicate important information to parents that may have slipped your mind before the bell rang! A caution when using this webpage builder is to know who may or may not have internet connection at home in order to access this webpage or turn in homework assignments. 

Grockit Answers

Grockit would be a great way to support parents. If you provide links to how to videos or even videos of what is actually going on in the classroom.  This tool would give them a safe space to ask questions and make comments. A concern is that it may be overwhelming to parents who are not techno savvy.  

Class Dojo

This is a great site, particularly for the elementary level. Parents and students can create accounts, therefore having access to such behavior reports. Class Dojo gives parents direct access to what their child is doing well, along with things he/she may need to improve on. The targeted feedback is nice for goal-setting. Never having used Class Dojo, I wonder if some students would get a kick out of seeing who could get the lowest points or if it could be used to get negative attention rather than positive.

Kid Blog

Teachers can assign blog posts to their students and the students can publish their thoughts on reading assignments, class projects, discussions, lectures, etc. in a safe and secure environment.  It can be used for creative writing, book clubs, science notebooks, demonstration of student learning through digital portfolios.    

Word Press

Teachers can assign their students a more challenging, authentic 21st century learning assignment where students have to create their own website or blog.  This would be a great tool for CTI teachers and a good tool for all students of the next generation. 

Remind

Teachers can send out reminders to parents about field trips, assemblies, etc. Teachers can also safely text with students about school work and send out reminders about homework.

Edublogs

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today's Meet

Teachers can share class information through podcast, or digital newsletters.  Students could also complete homework assignments, or have class discussions through the blog.  Teachers could use Edublogs as a way to announce upcoming assignments, with a podcast modeling how to do the assignment.

 

This is a great feedback/communication tool. Students can post questions and/or comments during a particular lesson. It provides quick, anonymous feedback to teacher or presenter, while ensuring audience is included.
