Webtools for Teachers
Let us share some of our favorite FREE webtools with your teachers. There are so many tech tools for teachers on the internet and we can break it down for you. Participants will be given access to our online list of the latest tools available to educators. (We are available to do more in depth training on individual webtools.)
Creating Instructional Videos
There are thousands of pre-made instructional videos out there but nothing is more effective than videos created by the teacher. Don’t think you have time for that? Discover some easy ways to create instructional videos with no editing involved using your phone, iPad, Google apps and webtools.
Assessment Tools on the Web
There are many types of assessment tools available to teachers on the web. Most teachers have “played” or used Kahoot but do they know about the new features - Team Mode, Jumble, Answer Streak Bonus? There are lots of other tools out there: Quizizz, Plickers, Quizlet (and the new Quizlet Live), Google Forms, and more. Come explore these resources with us.
iPads in the Classroom
Whether each student has their own iPad or there is just one available in the classroom, there are lots of free apps the teacher and the students can use to create multimedia projects. Teachers will have hands-on experience with many free iPad apps such as Tellagami, Sock Puppets, Shadow Puppets EDU, Photo Speak and many more.
Has your school “gone Google” and you feel left behind? ETV can help! We can cover Classroom, sharing, Google Forms, apps, extensions and add-ons. We can customize these sessions based on different needs and levels.
As classrooms move to a 1:1 environment, it changes the way instruction is delivered. Let ETV show you free tools available for teachers to use whether they are 1:1 already or are moving in that direction. We will explore tools for assessment, flipping the classroom, and communicating with students and parents. (This session incorporates a little of each of the other sessions listed.)
The Power of QR Codes
You have seen QR Codes everywhere; why not use them in your classroom? We will share how to create them, scan them and the many uses of QR Codes in schools.
iMovie on iPads
iMovie is simple and quick! It is a great tool for teachers and students. Teachers can create quick clips for instruction or to show off their awesome classrooms. Students can create projects that show their learning, teach fellow students, make a difference in their community and world, and much more, while practicing many cross-curriculum skills including creativity and collaboration. Publish and share with community leaders and across the globe. Students work harder when they know others will see their work. Start simple and grow. No limit!
How to tell a Good Story
Let’s discuss what makes a good story and then create one using readily available webtools on mobile devices or in a computer lab. (1.5 to 3 hours)
Augmented and Virtual Reality
Let us introduce your staff to free Augmented and Virtual Reality resources that are available for free and are easy to use. After a brief explanation, teachers will be able to visit stations so they can experience some of the AR/VR resources available to their classrooms. (This is a great after school PD - 1-1.5 hour, hands-on session).
