Slide 1

A TodaysMeet room was created as a backchannel.

Slide 2

The prayer is also on the bottom of the 3-2-1 sheet. http://www.seattlearchdiocese.org/Assets/PS/1990_2012Prayer-TechandMind.pdf

Slide 3

I modified this page to make things easier to find. I now have the pages in the order in which we learn. I put, in parenthesis, the dates we spoke about tiles on the page.

Slide 4

How has this benefited you over the last two months? Is anyone still outstanding on PD certificates?

Slide 5

This is an opportunity that came to me this past month. SMART Education can invite up to thirty individuals to a day of training including breakfast and lunch. If fewer than 30 want to attend I can open it up to two people from each school.

Slide 6

Each time we gather we will continue to link our work with the ISTE standards. All month I have been linking to stories posted on Twitter and Facebook pages across the Archdiocese. If your school does not have Twitter or Facebook pages, please email a link to what is posted on the school website. In this way, we can see what is happening and ask each other questions. One of the big wins

Slide 7

We will be looking at how students can : create an original work as a means of personal expression communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats use technical skills to operate new websites As teachers we will: promote, support and model creative and innovative thinking and inventiveness provide students with multiple and varied formative and summative assessments aligned with content and technology standards and use resulting data to inform learning and teaching demonstrate fluency in technology systems and the transfer of current knowledge to new technologies and situations

Slide 8

In October we got started on curriculum mapping for the Archdiocese of Newark. You determined various major content topics that are taught across the schools. In November each group thought through how the major content topics fit into the overall six strands outline in the NJ State Technology standards and the ISTE standards. Today you will begin to take the listed skills and see where each fits in the unique strand. You will have to define more skills and make sure what was listed back in October is really a skill.

Slide 9

These are all examples of skills. They are actions that you can observe a student doing.

Slide 10

The word understand is not a skill because you cannot “see” a student’s understanding. We need to rewrite the skills so that a student can be observed doing something. It must start with a verb. If you think “The student will be able to” and write from there, you will be fine.

Slide 11

These images are not meant to be read. We have seen these items over the last two months. They are in a folder on each table to support you in the work this morning.

Slide 12

I included a printout of skills from an old Techworks program.

Slide 13

I created a Google Doc with links to each of the spreadsheets you will edit today. I have a link to the skills you already defined in October along with ISTE and NJ Standards and the Techworks skills in a spreadsheet.

Slide 14

You will work for 45 minutes. I will use a countdown timer from the Class Tools website. When we get close to the end of the time limit, you will hear Christmas music playing.

Slide 15

In the surveys it came across loud and clear that you are looking for sites to send students to practice content. I will begin adding a few student tools each month. I will give you a brief demonstration and description. You will have time to take a look on your own at the end of the workshop. The information about the sites is in the pink Subject Specific tiles in Symbaloo.

Slide 16

Storyline Online is a great site that has Screen Actors Guild members reading picture books. They are high quality. They are stored on YouTube so if YouTube is blocked at your school this might give you another reason to try to get it unblocked.

Slide 17

Where Is…? Is a great site to practice locating cities on a map. It is interactive.

Slide 18

Xtramath is a free site. You create a teacher account. It gives you pin numbers for each student. This would be great for a classroom with two or three computers. It is to help students attain automaticity in their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. A teacher signs on to the computers once. Each day a student sits down to work. After 10 minutes they have completed their practice. It will automatically choose another student in class to begin work. Flyers are available on the site to be sent home for extra practice. The students will need to know their pin number.

Slide 19

I was going to have you practice, but decided against it. This is what the pin number sheet would look like.

Slide 20

Once per week the teacher is sent a note showing how the students are doing and when they practiced.

Slide 21

Newsela is a great site for non-fiction reading. A teacher can create classes and give the students a join code. They can assign articles or students can just select what they want to read. The student can select the Lexile level of the reading. You can see from the image that the computer changes the wording in response to the reading level selected. Some of the articles also have short four question quizzes.

Slide 22

This is what a teacher class looks like. You can see the Sign Up Code. When the student signs up for the account they type the sign up code, their name, user name, and password.

Slide 23

This is what the questions look like. When finished the students see how many they got right. If they have incorrect answers, it will show them their answer and the correct response.

Slide 24

The back image shows what the teacher sees when they assign an article. You can see from the front image what the student sees when they log on. They can see when an article was assigned, who assigned it, the title of the article, the Lexile chosen, and how they scored. You can see when a student chose to read independently. In the free version, the teacher cannot get a report on how a student is doing. They could have a child show them their account page. Even used for free, there is a lot of value in the program.

Slide 25

We have used and experienced Plickers, Socrative, and TodaysMeet to some degree. We are not going to get into how to set up Kahoot, but we will use it as a quick discussion starter. When I start the program, it will play a video and wait for everyone to join. We will watch the short video and then you will join in a competitive game about formative assessment. What do we know about how these domains were registered? Getkahoot is a commercial website. The student site has been registered as an Italian domain. If you use someone else’s quiz, it will be at play.kahoot.it. Why do you think they didn’t go with .com for everything? I log on as a teacher. I have already created the teacher account and set up questions. https://play.kahoot.it/#/?quizId=5ea04a0f-8090-42cb-8eb5-414dc4bc31a9

Slide 26

There are a number of options you can set. One of the benefits that Kim Goldberg from Academy of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Tenafly had mentioned is that there are many teacher created pre-made quizzes that you can instantly use.

Slide 27

I had asked you to write a short bullet-point list or paragraph telling what you believe formative assessment is an is not. I asked you to sign up for an Educreations account. If you haven’t signed up for an Educreations account, please do that now. Once you log on, click the + to create a new lesson. I am going to show you a demo that is on the Educreations site. You can see where the student might be confused with this math topic. You can see in the end, the child did know what they were talking about. The writing might have been a typographical error.

Slide 28

After you click + on the website, you get the following screen. You MUST have a microphone attached for the site to work. You can draw, but if you exit without recording you loose your work. You can import images using the icon at the bottom of the screen. After you record, you can save. You must have a script because when you click record, you cannot go back and edit what you say. After the recordings in done, you will see a save button.

Slide 29

The iPad app looks a little different. You have an option to type text that is not available on the website.

Slide 30

Here is your task. You will have 10 minutes to work alone or with others.

Slide 31

When you fnish you can type the Share button on the website or the rectangle with the up pointing arrow on the iPad. You can share a link to the video or get the embed code to add the video you a wiki, blog, or other site.

Slide 32

When you have finished you can go to the website at the bottom of this screen and share the URL of your video.

Slide 33

Here are the directions.

Slide 34

The only prework I have for January is to join and look in on a teacher created group in Edmodo. We have been enjoying private communications through the PK-8 group you joined. If you have not already created an Edmodo account and joined our group, you will need to do so. Send me an email for the join code for the group. Once you are in Edmodo, you can look through the teacher created groups and join one. There are groups across grade levels and subject areas. The computer technology group is very active. You may find some are not quite so active. I want to hear what you learn by being a part of one of the groups at the January workshop.

Slide 35

In the surveys you said you would like more hands on. I learned about a website called Big Marker. It allows for 1 to many webinars or meetings in which everyone can speak for up to 100 people for free. I would like to try this in February. In the survey at the beginning of the session I asked what you might like to learn about in more depth. I will choose from those topics.

Slide 36

I have been issuing the badges through Credly. You earn the bronze badge when you complete pre-work. Silver shows how you extend your learning. Gold is for using those ideas with your own students. The ruby level is for helping one teacher learn about the idea. The emerald level is when you truly act as a technology integrator and help the teacher within their class with a lesson.

Slide 37

If you did not get a chance to complete the survey at the beginning of the workshop, I will send the link and you can complete it back at school.
