This free Toolkit from Microsoft is an excellent resource for high-quality materials to complement your Internet safety unit. Download PDFs and brochures about digital citizenship for any age group. Find topics titled Digital Citizenship Begins with You Factsheet, Help Kids Stand Up to Online Bullying Brochure, DigiDucks Big Decision Book Sample, and more.

tag(s): digital citizenship (58), internet safety (108)

In the Classroom

Use the PDFs in your class or during professional development. Take advantage of the many free resources and ideas on this site. Bring some technology into the presentations by challenging small groups of students to transform the PDFs presentation into an interactive learning tool for younger students or their peers. Ask them to add questions, feedback, more images, etc. so the PDF becomes a student-created tutorial on an aspect of digital citizenship. Of course, students will be graded on the accuracy of their information as well as their creativity. Think of it as inverse teaching. Have students extract the information (with proper credit of course) and create their tutorial using ePubEditor, reviewed here, or Zeetings, reviewed here. Prepare a rubric before you start or use our Rubrics to the Rescue to find one that shares your expectations for this project.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Kiddom is an online tool for managing and evaluating classroom assignments while working with Common Core Standards. Create and share your assignments with a Common Core tag. Use the rubric creator to grade based on standards or traditional grading. Students submit work to Kiddom to receive instant feedback when assignments are evaluated. The teacher dashboard shows several different indicators of individual and class performance based on Common Core Standards. Add as many classes as you wish and switch easily between classes through your dashboard. Kiddom also includes several free math apps for K-2 students available for download through the iTunes store. Be careful, most are free; however, one is not. This program works using Gmail and Google Drive. There is a thorough FAQ section and several tutorial videos to help you get started. 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 KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): assessment (99), classroom management (134), commoncore (92), data (148), rubrics (32)

In the Classroom

Use Kiddom to collect data and differentiate student instruction in any classroom. Add each class or group of students to document. Follow learning goals and mastery of standards. Share Kiddom information with parents as part of your ongoing communication process. Use Kiddom to collect and gather information for IEP and other intervention and data collection meetings. If you are lucky enough to have access to Apple devices in your classroom, download the free math apps.

Comments

A fun to use app with very helpful support staff. Also, they have standards available for 7-12, not just K-6. Jordan, , Grades: 0 - 12

Assess students prior knowledge by creating a Breaking News piece to introduce a new unit. Ask students to fill in an interactive KWL chart from Holt, reviewed here, or discuss in small groups what they know about the topic. Use in presentation slides by downloading the image from your computer. Then upload the image to a slide presentation creator such as Slidestory, reviewed here. Suggest to students that they do the same for their presentations. Use as a timeline of events for lab experiment, a novel study, historical event, and more. You might want to think about using this tool as a storyboard for digital storytelling; printing blank templates would work well for storyboarding.

Use the news and improve reading scores. Jellybean Scoop offers different news articles, written daily, at four different Lexile reading levels. Levels for articles are Starter, Single, Double, and Triple. Find articles in categories of World News, Nature and Science, Odd News, Inspiration and Health, and Fun Facts. Each story has an audio recording and the ability to record yourself reading it. Find activities such as vocabulary, sentence scramble, and a quiz. See the many Demo Videos to really understand the powerful features on Jellybean Scoop. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): audio books (32), DAT device agnostic tool (196), differentiation (47), news (261), reading comprehension (116), sound (100)

In the Classroom

Achieve three goals here: differentiate, help students improve their reading comprehension, and keep students current with what is happening in our nation and the world. When assigning articles, choose to have the class read at one reading level, or choose individuals and set the reading level for them. Set up different articles at different learning stations on the computers in your room. Since Jellybean Scoop is cloud based, even absent students can complete the missed work easily. Teachers of gifted students can use this site to accelerate or enrich reading for students. Teachers of Learning Support students and ESL/ELL students will love this alternate way for their students to meet current events requirements. Teachers with free accounts can have up to 25 students. If you have a larger class, there is a "work around" for this. If you have a Gmail account, you can add subaccounts (see directions to do this here). You could create another Jellybean account with this subaccount, but you would end up with two different accounts on Jellybean Scoop.

Take your standard PowerPoint to new interactive levels with this tool! Add video or audio, write on your slides as you present, and even insert quizzes and polls. Take the limited PowerPoint presentation and "mix" it with the best parts of a live lecture in one tool. Each PowerPoint slide contains additional tabs for the added information. Since each slide is independent and contains the video, audio, or screencast, those slides can still be reordered by dragging them into the correct order. Insert information from Khan Academy or CK-12 as well. Easily control the number of attempts with quizzes, provide hints, add a timer, randomize the questions, or give feedback. Analytics are provided as well to see student interaction with the material. Each Mix lives online and can be accessed with any browser. Give the link to students for access. Mixes cannot be saved on your computer. Find ways to use with popular Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas, and more with these tutorials found here. Note: Mixes can only be created with a PC and PowerPoint 2013 (not free).

In the Classroom

Use this tool to create Flipped Lessons, moving some material like knowledge activities, as a pre-class activity. Office Mix is a valuable tool when you will be out of the classroom. Your plans are ready to go! Absent students can easily follow the content from the day. Differentiate for your classroom by creating a Mix that can be used for students to review as needed. Students who need it can review while others can focus on the material that they need. Use this tool wherever a PowerPoint with more detailed explanations are needed. Club advisors can use this tool to show 'how to' information for extracurriculars or field trips. Use this tool to show how to complete forms correctly, saving time and frustration! Students can create a Mix to share information researched for a class presentation.

The 180 Days Challenge is based on the PBS series 180 Days: Hartsville documentary. Take the challenge as a teacher, administrator, or parent to answer problem-based scenarios related to education. After completion, view results that provide insight into your education style and how it relates to the current educational climate. In addition to the challenge questions, this site includes several video excerpts from the series featuring events such as conferences and a discussion of generational poverty. If your district blocks YouTube, they 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 KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
