There are a lot of great things happening in the classroom now that we are back to full capacity. One of my aims on here is to give more glimpse into the creative efforts I am putting into my courses. I’ve kept myself sane during pandemic teaching by enjoying the process of CHANGE. I’m trying to embrace the lasting changes that the pandemic has brought to education.
Many of you don’t come to these pages looking for teaching inspiration so I will keep it brief, but every so often I would like to highlight some things I’m utilizing in my classroom.
Here’s a look at a new tool: Jamboard (a Google add-on)
For this collaborative tool, students get a virtual sticky note and write their name on it. From there, they drag and drop the sticky in the correct category. It is a great tool for formative assessment and small group data collection. It is also a live document so I had it projected on the screen in the front the room and they could watch one another respond. In using this tool for assessment students could anonymously add sticky notes.
I got the theme for this Jamboard (as well as many more) from Ashley Bible. It was a $3.00 download on TpT, but so worth it!
