Resources for Online Teaching & Learning

Help with All the Google Apps We’re Using

The Two Best Sources of Tutorials I’ve found:

Google Classroom Help This doc is a comprehensive list of tutorials for working with G. Classroom. It also includes help with using Hangouts – a way to meet in real time with your students.

Video Recording Tools for recording lectures that students can view.

  • Google Hangouts Meet great for recording your screen. Quick tutorial from Pamela
  • We Video is more complicated, but can do even more.
  • Flipgrid students can record short videos in response to a topic, or prompt from the teacher.  
  • Voicethread & Adobe Spark are two more ways you can collaborate online with students that support all sorts of digital media. Please ask me if you need any support with these.
  • Screencastify is a Chrome Plugin that allows you to record your screen but at this time, we’re suggesting recording Hangout Meets instead. 
  • Padlet a digital bulletin board for resource sharing and collaborating with students.  Can link to articles, images, links, videos and more. 

Online Books & Articles – Multiple Subjects

Online Skills Practice, Online Assessments

  • Kahoot is always fun, the kids love to make their own too
  • Formative is an online assessment tool where you can build your own assessments nad give students feedback.
  • IXL (math & grammar skills practice)
  • Learning Express (pre-made quizzes for middle & high school students, kind of like SAT prep)
  • Albert (practice and assessment resource for core topics grades 6-12. Teachers can assign modules and track student progress. AP programs also. Good for reviewing material you’ve already covered.)
