Become a World-Class Digital Citizen

Digital Citizenship Week - October 16-21, 2017


Most teachers would probably agree that while most students have and use mobile devices and computers; students don't always know how to use devices properly in an educational setting. More and more classes are branching out by connecting and collaborating with other classes from around the world. For many of our students, these are new situations; in which, they will need guidance and modeling on how to work appropriately in that type of setting. We can help make students aware of the difference between personal and professional technology use, and how to safely and responsibly use technology devices in any setting.
 
Digital Citizenship is a user's appropriate and responsible behavior with regard to technology use. So what makes a model digital citizen? Check out this link to read about the 9 Elements of Digital Citizenship

Special Edition: PD in your Pajamas

Join us Thursday, October 12 at 7 p.m. for a special edition of PD in your Pajamas webinar. During the webinar, we will discuss what it means to be a good digital citizen, preview the various resources and games that are available to teachers and students, and share activities that you can do with your classes during Digital Citizenship Week. 

PSA Challenge 2017

Want to inform others about the positive effects of being a good digital citizen?

K.I.S.S.

Technology Integration

While trying to find inspiration for today's blog, I remembered a past blog that I read.
πŸ’‹KISS - Keep it Simple Sunshine.🌞

While visiting classrooms this week, we saw some great learning with the use of technology - and none of it was a HUGE project. When integrating technology, it takes practice, reflection, tweak, and repeat until perfected. Just within two days, students in classrooms at four different elementary campuses:

practiced how to sign into a Chromebook πŸ’»

created Popplets showing place value in different formats

had an online discussion in Padlet

went on a live safari πŸ…

played Plickers in math class

created a slide show in google slides to review nouns

worked on a variety of assignments using Google ClassroomπŸ“

The 4 C's could be seen in all classes using technology. Students were working together to help classmates(collaboration), finding pictures and colors to give their assignment their own personal touch (creativity), solving and showing what they know other than paper and pencil (critical thinking), and talking and sharing (communication). 

Students were engaged, learning, and sharing with others.

Play Your Voice in a QR Code

I love using QR Codes in the classroom - and here's another great way to use them. Tony Vincent  tweeted about using QR codes to play audio recordings - and it's so easy to do!

1. Go to https://online-voice-recorder.com/ and record your message.
2. Save the recording to your Google Drive.
3. Create a shareable link to the file and copy it.
4. Go to goqr.me and paste the link in the box (make sure you click the globe icon first).
5. Download the QR code or right click and copy it.

You now have a QR code with audio attached to it.

Teachers - create audio QR codes to provide instructions to students, read a passage from a story, creating oral exams, parent tutorials and information, interactive lessons, etc.

Students - create audio QR codes to show understanding of any concept, share reading fluency, ask questions, etc.

To level up this tool, create a shared google slides file and post it in Google Classroom. Students would insert their QR codes into a slide. All students could then scan the QR codes to hear their fellow students reading or discussing a certain topic. 

Here's a link to his twitter post - https://twitter.com/tonyvincent/status/875154640634957825

Safely Present YouTube Videos in the Classroom

Tech Tip Tuesday



While YouTube is a beneficial educational tool to use in the classroom, the advertisements and other video screen shots can be inappropriate and distracting for students. Leading to a whole lot of headaches if teachers aren't on their toes and monitoring at all times and all screens. This in itself can be difficult. Here are two options that can help you safely present YouTube Videos to your students: 



1) Google Slides - Teachers can easily assemble all their educational YouTube videos and embed them into Google Slides. 
  • Open Google Slide
  • Click Insert>Video
  • Paste in a YouTube link OR type in a keyword to search YouTube for a video.
  • You can preview the video before inserting it into the slide. 
  • Click on the video you want>Select. 
The video will play right on the slide with no links or advertisements. 

2) ViewPure - See YouTube videos with no links, advertisements, or distractions. 
  • Open the ViewPure website.
  • Paste a YouTube link into the search box.
  • Click the Gear icon to set up a custom URL, set up a password, or define the start and end time of the video. 
  • Click Purify. It will open your video in a new screen. 
  • Copy the link at the top and share with students, parents, or faculty through an email, classroom website, or Google Classroom.

Color Challenged? Solution Provided

Tech Tip Tuesday


Laura is constantly laughing and making faces when it comes to my background and font color choices in presentations or infographics. When it comes to design, I will admit it that I am color challenged. There's just too many choices, and I often like to color outside the box. πŸ˜€ 

Here are a few extensions and apps that can assist all who are color changed when it comes to presentation designs. All can be found in the Chrome Web Store

Apps:

Color Picker - This site has ads that could be distracting for students. 

Image Color Picker - This one I like. I can load an image that I am using on my presentation and choose a color to use as my background, so that my background and image colors do not clash. Once the photo is loaded onto the site, you can pick a color. Then copy the color code and paste it into your presentation's custom background.

This is a video on how I use Image Color Picker.

Draw, Tell, Share

Mobile App Monday


I know many teachers and students use Chatterpix as a tool for students to share with others what they know. Draw and Tell is another app from Duck Duck Moose that lets students draw and then narrate their drawing. This app can be used to explain a math problem, talk about historical locations and people, tell an original story about a frog that demonstrates its life cycle, or rewrite and tell a story from another point of view. The options are endless. 

This app is great for all ages and includes so many free and easy-to-use features.  The app comes with quite a few choices for backgrounds, color options (crayons, paint brushes, and color pencils), stickers, and stencils. Even better students can group drawings and recordings in order to create their own mini-movie. 

While looking into this app, I found some interesting news. Duck Duck Moose is now a part of Kahn Academy. That means all Duck Duck Moose products are free and without ads. 

Here are a few other Duck Duck Moose Products that you might want to try out:

Repost: Custom Graphics with Canva

Website Wednesday


Canva is a website (and an app) that helps you create beautiful graphics to use in social media, slide shows, blog posts, documents and more.

You can also log in with your Google account so that makes it easy to remember your user information. :)

From the website, just select the type of graphic you want to create - it's ok if you don't see the exact thing you are looking for, you can do a custom size graphic as well. Also remember, just because it says social media as the graphic type don't let if fool you. You can still use that graphic for many things. Click the + sign to see more graphics options. Finally, there are free tools and paid tools. I've never paid for a graphic, but if I need to, they are very inexpensive. I encourage you to take a look at this site - you won't be sorry.

Want to see Canva in action? Join us today at 4 PM for our EdTech Talks webinar. Laura will guide you through the set-up and all the cool features that Canva has to offer. Begin today designing professional quality graphics.

When you log in and if it asks for an Adobe Connect Add-in, you can find that in the Software Center.



And now here are a few keyboard shortcuts for teachers and students to use when watching a video on YouTube that can enhance the viewing experience. 

Space bar or k key = to start and pause video. 

m key = to mute and unmute the sound

down arrow = to decrease volume

up arrow = to increase volume

c key = to turn Closed Caption on and off

f key = to turn Full Screen Mode on and off

l key or right arrow = jump ahead a few seconds

j key or left arrow = jump back a few seconds

0 = to take you to the beginning of the video

5= to take you to the halfway mark of the video (50%) *This works with the other numbers as well.

Google Arts and Culture

Forgetful Friday

Driving home yesterday and reflecting over the awesome technology ideas discussed and planned at Alta Loma, I realized that I didn't send out a Website on Wednesday. And now I notice that I missed Monday, too. I apologize to all our Blog readers out there. Better late than never. Right?

This cool tool can be accessed as a mobile app from the itunes store or google play store or from the Google Arts and Culture website. Whether on a screen, big or small, art from over a thousand museums across 70 countries are a click away.

In Projects, pick a topic and immerse yourself in art work, articles, stories, videos, online exhibits and 360 virtual tours. Here's a few that caught my eye:

In Experiments, explore art with machine learning created by coders and artist. 
  • Free Fall uses mathematical formulas to place pieces of art into a 3D environment. *Cannot be used on phones. 
  • T-SNE Map uses Machine Learning algorithms that lets you explore an interactive 3D landscape of art work. *Cannot be used on phones
  • X Degrees of Separation uses Machine Learning to connect 2 random works of art by analyzing features, finding patterns, and creating a chain of art work. 
  • Curator Table lets you search a topic, compare works of art and see how they've evolved over time all in a 3D setting. 
You can also search Arts and Culture by
  • Artists
  • Mediums
  • Art Movements
  • Historical Events
  • Historical Figures
  • Places
Keep up with the latest and greatest that Google Arts and Cultures have to offer at their YouTube Channel.

*This is not a site that I would let younger students just explore on their own. As with all things online, it is always best to preview before allowing access in a classroom.

GSuite Training is SWEET!

Tech Tip Tuesday

While EdTech with Howard and Feck has shared this seriously sweet training tool from Google in their face-to-face trainings and webinars, I couldn't believe that we hadn't blogged about it. Well, wait no longer; here it is.

G Suite Training is an absolutely free must have extension for all Google users. It is interactive training that walks users step by step on how to set-up and use Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, Drawings, AND Classroom. 
What's great is this tool should already be available for use on the school chromebooks. If you cannot see the extension icon located in the top right- hand corner of a doc, slide, form, drawing, sheet, or classroom, just follow these easy steps to add the extension:

Go to Chrome Web Store>Search: G Suite training> click the blue Add to Chrome Button> Allow for extension to be added> Open a Google App Product and begin training. 

Example of what it will look like once activated in Google Classroom.

Check out all the short interactive training videos offered for Google Classroom
Learning how to use Google Apps like Docs, Slides, Forms, Sheets, Drawings, and Classroom has never been easier for teachers or students.
