Preparing Our Teachers for Online Learning

Title image Preparing for Online Learning

Many schools have their Learning Management System (LMS) in place. If you do, I'm sure you're working with your school to be prepared for closings due to unpredictable situations.
I have some resources for you, so you can be prepared for the future.
  • TechLearning has a great article on selecting the best digital tools for your school. This article provides free learning management systems, ways to deliver lessons, educational resources, and tools for collaboration and interaction. I highly recommend this article.
  • Shake-Up Learning by Kasey Bell, has an article on apps that integrate with Google Classroom.
  • Study All Knight - My friend Danielle, has provided excellent information for E-Learning Days.

Three of my favorite online resources are:
  • EdPuzzle - Students watch videos which can be controlled by the teacher. Teachers can add questions during the informational videos, add information for further explanation, and vocabulary. You can even add your voice for narration. This is an engaging way to track your students' comprehension.
  • Newsela - This online resource is another favorite way to check comprehension and provide students with articles on current events in the content areas. The content is aligned with standards and lessons can be differentiated.
  • Quizizz - This resources provides meaningful quizzes on every subject. Just find one that relates to your skill or create your own quiz. Students work at their own pace and get immediate feedback.
  • ScreenCastify - If you need to give students a tutorial of the skill or the activity itself, try using ScreenCastify. It's so easy to use and you can add your voice and webcam for the best interaction. This FREE screen recorder is for Google Chrome and so easy to install.

FREE Activities from Me
( Remember, any products you download can be added to your LMS. Just download the PDF and save it. Export the slides as images. Then, upload the slides to your LMS to create the assignment.)
