On February 22, Digital Learning Day will be celebrated in many schools. Here are three great classroom technology tools to help you plan and create dynamic digital lessons.
Flipgrid is a great online video tool that allows students to respond to questions in a short video format. This tool is free for teachers and students. You can pay to upgrade your account and get more features. This tool is a great way to capture student’s thinking and learning.
Screencast-O-Matic helps students and teachers record their desktop screens on laptops or desktops with audio and video. This is a great way to share content with or explain things to students. Think of screencasting like creating “how to” videos. I use screencasts when I have substitute teachers because then I am explaining the task directly to my students without any instructions geting mixed up. I upload the videos I make directly in Google Classroom so all of my students can access them.
Think of Padlet as an interactive bulletin board. This web 2.0 tool comes with a variety of templates to help students and teachers showcase and curate their learning. This is a great collaboration tool for students working on the same project, or teachers planning a unit together.
