  • Fab Find Friday: Google Translate

    Posted by Devon Bradley on 2/23/2018

    Google Translate can be used on your web browser or the app.  It is helpful when you need to translate in real time.

    You can also translate printed text.  Click the camera icon, position the iPad so you can see the text in the camera.  You will see the words change on the screen.

    This is how my blog post appears when I translate it live:

  • T-TESS Thursday: SeeSaw (Dimension 1.2)

    Posted by Amanda Castro on 2/22/2018 7:00:00 AM

    SeeSaw  

    SeeSaw is a digital portfolio for students to showcase their work.  Students and teachers can access SeeSaw from the web or on the iPad with the app.  When the parent notes are sent home, parents can be connected to their student.  Then when a student's work has been approved by the teacher, the parent receives a notice to view the work.  Parents can like or comment back on their student's work.  All of the posting and commenting is filtered by the teacher before posted.

    This app/site can be used at all grade levels.  At the elementary level, there is the option to have a class sign in so that students do not have to log in individually.  Upper-grade students can sign in with their Google accounts.

    Save time by having students read their sight words to post on their portfolio.  Then go back and listen to them later.

    SeeSaw has an activity library on their site, but have also sent out this Google Slide presentation with many more!

  • T-TESS Thursday: Exit Ticket (Dimension 2.5)

    Posted by Amanda Castro on 2/15/2018 7:00:00 AM

    An exit ticket is a quick way to gather information from the students.  Your exit ticket can be a very quick assessment of what they learned with one or two questions.  An exit ticket can also be used to ask how the student feels he/she is understanding the material.  A Google form is a great way to collect the exit ticket answers.  Or if you prefer, post it notes work well too.  There are many different platforms you can use to collect an exit ticket.

  • T-TESS Thursday: Twitter (Dimension 4.3)

    Posted by Amanda Castro on 2/8/2018 7:00:00 AM

    Twitter is full of teachers sharing ideas and collaborating.  You can learn from teachers all over the world without even leaving your living room.  

    Twitter chats are a great way to jump in and make some connections with other educators.  Chats range from being about general education topics, to very specific content areas.

    This site maintains a list of many of the popular education chats along with the times they "meet."  There is even a new teachers to Twitter chat held every Saturday.

    Want to get started, but not sure how? Ask your campus EdTech, we are happy to help!
