Resources for Online Teaching & Learning
Help with All the Google Apps We’re Using
The Two Best Sources of Tutorials I’ve found:
- Teacher Center: Training (the absolute basics)
Teach From Home from Google (best help for Classroom, Meets and everything else)
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.
