In the next two days, you will gain a good understanding of how you can integrate GPS activities and GIS resources into your instruction. This is a primer course – if you’d like to REALLY get into this topic, participate in the  CMAP Workshop – a 5-day, 3-credit course next summer (or in Cedar City in two weeks!). The permalink above will always get you back to this page for the class resources and links. Go to sedcclint.com under the GPS tag for all of my related resoruces.

Get Your Utah Educational Technology Endorsement – ALL Online!

uen_logo_print_colorUEN, in partnership with USOE, SUU and the U of U, have been working hard to make earning your Educational Technology Endorsement (ETEP) a LOT easier – especially if you live and teach outside of the Wasatch Front.

The purpose of this updated program is to break down the barriers of distance, cost, and opportunity. In the process course requirements were realigned with the ISTE standards. Through a new partnership with SUU, teachers can now complete the endorsement entirely online and at a low cost. This updated program is not designed to replace those offered by districts who already have an endorsement program. Although open to all, this program is a great opportunity for teachers in rural areas or districts without an endorsement program.

The ETEP requires nine credits from Utah Education Network and nine credits from either Southern Utah University or the University of Utah. The ETEP program is focused around the ISTE Standards for Teachers. Participants will take various courses from standards 1-4. Standard 5 is achieved through participation in the ETEP program and attendance at an EdTech conference.

Also designed into the program is the opportunity for teachers to continue their education with a Master Degree from either SUU or U of U using courses that they have already taken in the ETEP.

Learn more about the new UEN Educational Technology Endorsement Program or check out the SUU ETEP Google Group.

It’s great to be in Washington County with you all today! Here’s what we’ll cover:

With Classroom, you can use a combination of a Google Form as a quiz building tool and a great add-on called Flubaroo to grade your quizzes, evaluate the results, and even automatically email students their scores! This is a great combination to use for formative assessment in your classrooms.

Another option for formative assessment are classroom ‘clickers.’ Since you have access to Chromebooks, or even student cell phones, you can utilize some great (and FREE) web based student response and feedback systems – without the need to purchase additional single-purpose devices.

Here’s a rundown of some great options out there, and what it’s  “Killer Feature” is:

Platform: Killer Feature:
Socrative Great overall features, has Teacher and Student apps, but not required
Mentimeter Unlimited responses – great for school wide surveys
Poll Everywhere SMS/Text voting from student cell phones, free teacher accounts
Nearpod Presentation and assessment in one tool, great solution for classroom iPad labs, same app for teachers and students
Kahoot “Gamified”, colorful and fun
Plickers No student device needed – uses paper cards and a teacher cell phone or iPad camera
Google Forms & Flubaroo Easy to build, no additional logins for teachers or students needed

Google in the Classroom – Self-Paced Lessons on Drive, Classroom and MUCH More

While doing a little research this morning, I stumbled upon this great site that I had not encountered before:

https://www.google.com/edu/training/get-trained/

This resource from the Google for Education site has self-paced instructions on how to use and implement about 20 different Google services and tools, including Drive, Docs, Classroom, Chrome, Chromebooks, YouTube, as well as a module on Digital Citizenship.

We are using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks ever increasingly in our region, in Utah, and in the entire country. They are amazing tools, and you can’t beat the cost. These resources will be a great help for those teachers who just like to get their hands dirty and teach themselves how to use these tools, and will be a great resource for my teachers after the training has happened that have those lingering questions that always come up.

Happy Google-ing!

Get Your Message Across with Remind

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Get Your Message Across with Remind

Would you like to be able to send home reminders, information and notes to students and parents that they’ll actually READ? 1 out of 5 US teachers use Remind (formerly Remind101) to instantly connect with students and parents on a regular basis. It is free to setup and use, however if your student’s don’t have a bulk texting plan it may cost them to receive your updates. The company has committed to always keep at least some portion of this service free for teachers – they understand education. And, it integrates with Twitter!

Sign up for a free Remind account, and make sure to get the iOS or Android app for your phone or device.

If you’d like to see how it works, sign up for my Technology Training group by texting @techtr to 81010:
