Here is a brief training on how to use Nearpod:
Nearpod is a fantastic way to engage your students in a presentation platform. Below is a video for using Nearpod.
Based on the new improvements... you can collaborate it with others!!
Let me know what you think.
Collaboration can be a funny thing in the classroom.
When a special education teacher and a general education teacher are place in the same classroom to provide a positive co-teaching experience for all students, there are several thins that need to happen.
As long as there is a plan in place, the classroom can be a fun and engaging place for all those involved. Below is a template for you to download and use in your planning in the next couple of weeks. There is also a video where I describe how to use it effectively in the classroom. Please let me know what you think!!
"A Web Quest is an inquiry-based activity where students are given a task and provided with access to on-line resources to help them complete the task. It is an ideal way to deliver a lesson over the web. Web Quests are discovery learning tools; they are usually used to either begin or finish a unit of study (Teachology)."
There are several ways to complete a web quest. You can use Weebly or Google Sites.
Once you have chosen a web site builder. You need to have a few different sections: introduction, task, resources, conclusion, and a teacher's page.
The introduction shares the beginning information and the task describes what the students will be doing through the activity. The resources are any and all possible videos, stories, forms or whatever else they may need to finish the project. The conclusion is what the ending outcome will be, along with a teacher's page that shares standards and other ideas to accommodate for a variety of learners.
On the above web quest, I used accessibility and record myself using Screencastify to be able share what I want the students to do or reading the story for my students who struggle with reading.
A web quest could be something that you can use when you are absent for the day or creating a project that students can complete in the classroom or at home.
I hope you enjoy and have a great rest of the week!
So I have finally taken the plunge and created my own website with my name for presentations and training.
I love presenting information about any and everything technology.
This blog will allow me to provide different opportunities and ideas for helping include technology in your classroom.
I am a member of a duo called "Googly Girls" and we have our own blog: https://dadetechblog.blogspot.com/
I can't wait to share my thoughts here!
