G Suite and Google Classroom

One of the most helpful technology I learned about at ASTE was Google Classrooms. It was an answer to the problems I was finding in my combined 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classroom. G Suite and Google Classrooms allows me to stay on top of students papers-without the hassle of the students 'losing' their papers- and allows peers to easily collaborate.

Technology with Purpose (From George Couros: 10 Commandments of Teaching)

4. Technology with a purposeI recently had a teacher ask me what I thought about Prezi. I told them I really liked it for some uses and then asked them what they were going to use it for… They responded that their students needed to do a presentation and Prezi seemed like a cool new format to present. I agreed. When I dug deeper on the assignment it was short 1-2…See More

Code.org

Code.org is a free coding program for kids. There are video tutorials for teachers to learn how to do the coding. The kids start off slow, but quickly figure out what to do. The program makes use of popular characters from Angry Birds, Frozen, and Star Wars. There is an Hour of Code challenge that students can participate in and receive a certificate. This website gave me the confidence to introduce coding to my class, and now they are teaching me!See More
