Tech Tip Tuesday

Happy Tech Tip Tuesday,

Hope your week is going great!

I wanted to explore Google Classroom a little more and created a class for you all to join, so you can see it from a different point of view.

Note: You should see an additional email from me about joining my Google Class. ( Read After this EMAIL)

If you are not already set up in Google Classroom go to this link – Google Classroom

  • On the bottom right-hand corner, here is an option to sign in as a Student or a Teacher – select TEACHER. It will log you in as it is associated with your Google account already.

Once logged in it will give you a dashboard, if you have classes they will show up already if not there is a PLUS sign up by your username in the top right-hand corner. Go here and you can Join Class or Create Class.

To Join The Class

  • Option 1- Click on the email that I sent ( Similar time) this will get you right into the class. ( THIS works well if you have everyone’s email linked together such as… all_staff or you have a group with your class set up already.) Otherwise, this is a lot of work to individually invite each student to your class and time consuming.
  • Option 2- On your DASHBOARD click the + and Join Class, type in w2wbiq as the class code. This should send you right to our class page.

I have posted a question there for you to play with, you can answer and respond to others, just know that everyone in the class can see.

Tech Tip Tuesday

Happy Tech Tip Tuesday,

Hope you have some great things planned for the rest of the week! I have been working with some of our staff on flipping classrooms, student recordings and other recordings so thought I would send out some information for everyone.

I like to utilize Screencastify because it works well on Chromebooks. It is an extension you will need to add. HERE is the link to the extension to add to your Chrome browser.

I found a video on Screencastify and Google Sides that gives you step by step instructions of how to utilize the Screencastify extension.  HERE it is.

Ways to utilize this into your classroom

  1. Record your presentations while presenting in class so students could go back and view or if they are absent.

  2. Have students record themselves presenting their presentations or topics.

  3. Record morning message if you are going to be absent. (Sub Plans)

  4. Make Lesson Recap Videos ( students & Teachers)

  5. News Cast

  6. Moving Paper or Digital Manipulatives

  7. Whiteboard explainer

  8. Audio Assignments

  9. Verbal Feedback – Record feedback for students

  10. Instructional Videos

HERE is my go at Screencastify for some updates on Google Forms, check it out. It’s very user-friendly and easy to use.  This video is not perfect by any means and I recorded 10 before I was okay with the actual video but it is a great tool and definitely worth learning more about.

Have a great holiday break!
