Canvas + Video = Online Superstar! Or, Recording & Embedding Quality Instructional Content

  • Access the session slides as well as the Canvas course with all of the steps and how-to videos.
  • Maybe you are not looking to become an online superstar, but you DO want to record video in Canvas for your students where they can actually SEE and HEAR the fantastic lesson you are delivering. Join me to review several different workflows and options to capture your teaching and instructions in Canvas, with the best balance of quality and ease possible.

Google Jamboard – A Free and Collaborative Interactive Whiteboard for Any Device – Advance with the “>” symbol on the top of the Jam

  • Google Jamboard is a new tool in G Suite for Education that you may not be familiar with, but if you’ve ever wished you could have more than a couple of students working at your Interactive Whiteboard (a.k.a SMARTBoard) at the same time, Jamboard is for you! Draw and sketch ideas, add text with movable “sticky” notes, add any photos and images, even Drive documents – and your students can interact and add their ideas in real time, from just about any device you (or your students) have in your classroom. If you run out of space, you can add as many more frames as needed. And just like any other Google Doc, all edits are saved and can be shared with a few clicks.

Keep It Together With Google Keep

  • 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.
