We went 1:1 with Chrome Books last year and used Google Classroom. I am very comfortable making assignments and the students used docs to submit writing assignments. I also used FlipGrid and the kids really enjoyed that. Our P encouraged us all to find two or three things we could add to our instruction next year using the Chrome Books/GC. I am taking some PD this month on Google docs/sheets/slides/etc. Does anyone have suggestions for other things I can add that would benefit my students? I don't want to add/learn something I don't think we will use.

It's July, so I figure I should start thinking about this...

Would something like readworks.org work for adding something new? The kids log in using their google accounts, and I am pretty sure you can make differentiated assignments through classroom.

There is an extension called kami that allows you to assign pdfs that the kids can anotate and submit back on google classroom.

Use google drawings to show work in math.

Do you use google forms? Great way to make quizzes and self grading assignments. Pretty easy to use.

Integrate something like padlet for students to post pictures, short answers, etc. Might be similar to flipgrid, which I know I have looked at, but haven't used.

EdPuzzle!

You can create a video or upload from Youtube and make it more interactive by pausing at set points for students to write a reflection or answer a question. It also lets you see who has watched the whole video and how many times each student has watched a particular section. I love it for my flipped math class.

I use google forms to make quizes from our curriculum aligned assessments. I like that they are self grading and I like that the kids can get feedback right when they finish rather than waiting for me to grade them. I also can assign differentiated assessments with them by making a standard assessment and then making a copy of it and adding pictorials or simplifying some of the wording for my EL's. I the google classroom you just make 2 assignments and check/uncheck the "assign to" to assign different assessments to different students. here is a sample of a differentiated assessment that I added pictorials to:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...rm?usp=sf_link


I also have really gotten into using kahoot and nearpod. Kahoot is creates online games that the class plays together in real time to study things here is an example that I have used
https://create.kahoot.it/search?filt...vision%20Facts

They have a ton of premade kahoots on many subjects. I also do grammar ones on Fridays if the class had a good week.

Nearpod has "virtual field trips" and units that have all kinds of different digital tools. Each usually has some reading passages and ends with an assessment question or two. Here is an example of a free one-I also have a few good paid ones that work well with my thematic units.

Kami's good because students can get into documents and type, highlight, etc. This can be used in all subject areas. I have used this in the past and want to even more in the future to reduce the number of copies I am making.

Screencastify can be used to make videos and show kids directions. I went to a pd session on that at the start of last year and want to make it work this year. (We were so overwhelmed with other things that I never got to it, though I wanted to.)

I used:

1. digital.readworks.org
2. educationgalaxy.com
3. quizziz.com (My students really got into making their own quizzes at home, then would come in and share the code with everyone. Surprisingly, the quizzes were all educational ones that focused on inferences, main idea, context clues, and theme).
4. edpuzzle.com
5. flipgrid.com


I will add:

1. I am looking into using chatterpix with seesaw.

2. deck.toys looks amazing. I think of it as independent work but with all the bells and whistles of sites you already use.

3. Goosechase is an app that's like a scavengar hunt. I had so much fun with that one.

4. I also want to be able to see all screens of the laptops on my room to monitor students better. I had an issue with students using youtube (it is not blocked by my county). I found this site https://www.netop.com/chrome which has a free version. If anyone knows of any others, please let me know.

My school uses Go Guardian, but I think it is a paying site. I love it, though. I can lock screens, send a blast out with a website, set it to ONLY allow them on a certain site for a session, and can turn talk on. This allows me to communicate with each individual student via the chromebook.
