You may not have heard of Google Keep, but you NEED to know about it. Keep is an incredible and easy to use tool for organizing all of the bits of information busy educators tend to collect whenever, wherever, that always seems to get lost. Keep allows you to bring together notes, links, photos, really anything you can grab with your computer, tablet and phone! Beyond gathering and organizing your digital ‘stuff,’ you can share your notes, collaborate with others, set reminders… even drag-n-drop text and photos into your Google Docs! Join me today and make Google Keep an integral part of your daily workflow.

In these days of uncertainty in education, we all should be preparing blended learning resources for our students – whether we are lucky enough to be instructing students face-to-face, if we have some students who are learning from home, or if we all have to return to remote learning and instruction. See my post on Blended Learning Strategies, Instructional Video & Tools for Student Engagement for best practices and an overview of some great tools available. This post, however, focuses on some different workflows to easily (as possible) record your own instruction and embed your video into Canvas.
Unfortunately, there is not one ‘Best’ way to accomplish this, so I have outlined several approaches. Find one that will work best for you, and master it! Below are some slides that outline these strategies and workflows, but for some more depth, how-to videos and to see and compare what the recorded video looks like (not all methods and recording tools are equal!), please explore the pages in this public Canvas course that I have created:
We discuss Zoom interface basics, strategies for securing your meetings, recommended settings for online K-12 instruction, in-meeting best practices, sharing content, and engaging students.
Today, we will take a tour of some of the amazing Web-based apps available in the Chrome Web Store for Chromebooks, the Chrome Browser, or really any other web browser out there, as long as you are not stuck on IE 8 or lower. 😉 We will take a look at:
We also ended up giving you an introduction to the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). For more detail on the different functions of Canvas, take a look at the Canvas Video Guides.
