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