This 5 minute YouTube video provides a simple explanation of autism created for parents and teachers to share with students. Simple animations demonstrate how the brains of autistic persons receive information differently. The video also offers simple tips for supporting those with autism. If your district blocks YouTube, the video may not be viewable. You could always view the video at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the video from YouTube.

tag(s): autism (21), brain (71), disabilities (21)

In the Classroom

Share this short video with your class as part of any discussions on autism. Stop the video at different points along the way to discuss the information and develop knowledge of how to understand and work with autistic students. Consider giving all students a chance to voice their opinions (even the shy and quiet ones) by using a tool like Backchannel Chat, reviewed here. Backchannel Chat is an easy tool to manage if you are starting the process of integrating technology into your classroom. If you and your students are more advanced with technology, you may want to use a tool such as Vibby, reviewed here, where you AND your students can annotate, highlight, and ask questions or make observations about the content of the video. This video is also perfect for use during staff meetings as an introduction to considering tools and guidelines for working with autistic students.

ChatterHigh is a tool designed for high school students to investigate and discover career and college opportunities. Each day students participate in a 10 minute quiz activity with links to learning about different career programs. Students earn points through quiz answers to enter prize drawings.

tag(s): careers (136), college (48)

In the Classroom

Include ChatterHigh as part of any career exploration opportunity for students. This site was created in Canada, so many quizzes relate to Canadian sites; however, the information may be useful for many career searches. Use the information found on quizzes as the basis for students creating their own questions for career and college searches. After researching information, have students make a multimedia presentation to discuss with their peers what they discovered about a career path they may want to take. Use LiveSlides, reviewed here, if you are starting the process of integrating technology into your classroom. LiveSlides is an easy tool to manage if you are familiar with PowerPoint or Keynote. If you and your students are more advanced with technology, you may want to use a tool such as Canva, reviewed here, for students to create a custom poster, presentation, or flyer for the career path they are interested in pursuing.

Tolks is a simple storytelling tool. Create an account using your Facebook or Twitter profile. Choose characters (or upload an image). Don't forget to delete the "dummy images." Next, add dialogue, by deleting the text in the default box, then preview and edit or save. Simple! Share your Tolk using the URL or links to Facebook or Twitter.

tag(s): digital storytelling (153)

In the Classroom

For younger students, consider creating a class account for Tolks. Have students create Tolks to discuss literature, such as a conversation between characters or descriptions of feelings. Create Tolks to share on an interactive whiteboard or projector as lesson starters or display at the end of a lesson with characters discussing key information from a lesson. Upload images of shapes and have them compare and contrast features. World language students can create simple conversations in the language they are learning, or label pictures for vocabulary. You will find many uses for Tolks in your classroom! Counselors may want to have students create a Tolk to share information that may be difficult to discuss in person. Of course, be very careful not to share private information.

Some of the lesson plans use YouTube for videos. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

Girls Who Code is an organization founded to help close the gender gap in technology. They have two programs offering girls the opportunity to explore coding with peers. The Clubs Program is for girls in grades 6-12 and meets two hours each week in local schools and provides opportunities for computer training for beginners through advanced learners. The Summer Immersion Program offers a 7-week training for 10th and 11th-grade students in coding and exposure to jobs in the technology field. Accepted students receive stipends for transportation and living expenses to attend the program. Enter your city, state, and zip code to see a map for clubs in your area, or consider contacting the organization to start a club in your area. While most of the content on this site is appropriate for middle school girls, please preview before you share.
