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 (100), classroom management (135), commoncore (94), 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

Make a difference in students' lives and the world as you practice teaching and learning for a sustainable future. This site includes a teacher education program focused on the many aspects of a sustainable future and directing education to meet these needs. The first five modules provide background knowledge for the global challenges and need for education to address these problems. The topics include exploring global realities, understanding sustainable development, future perspectives, reorienting education for a sustainable future, and accepting the challenge. The next four modules illustrate ways to integrate these themes into your curriculum. The next nine interdisciplinary modules explore how to form a sustainable future. Find areas such as culture and religion, indigenous knowledge, women, population, world hunger, agriculture, tourism, communities, globalization, and climate change. There are resources and lesson plans for experiential learning, storytelling, values education, inquiry learning assessment, future problem-solving, learning outside the classroom, and community problem solving. See sections that provide explanations, characteristics, analyzation, and reflections to help you effectively integrate these classroom teaching practices into your curriculum.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (115), cultures (105), debate (41), problem solving (272), sustainability (19)

In the Classroom

Connect students globally with challenges that people face around the world. Begin by building your knowledge with the activities and resources provided. Continue by choosing different areas to explore as a class, in small groups, or individually. These activities can become a focal point of problem-based learning scenarios. Consider viewing Google Lit Trips, reviewed here, and challenge students to create a "sustainable earth" trip. Document areas on the globe with videos, images, and text that you and students find. Add a link to Pinterest, reviewed here, to have an ongoing brainstorming session of all possible solutions. Use parts of the site to begin a Global Connections Club either in class or after school. Students can share a Google doc or wiki to foster group collaboration. Not comfortable with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through. Focus on problem solving by sharing parts of Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future. Teach debate through the different sides of the issues presented. During current events, engage students in saving our most valuable resource, our Earth. Use as a nonfiction passage for close reading. Have students take information research further, and present to others in a different format. Begin a blog for each student to share reflections. Create a newspaper using a site such as Zinepal, reviewed here. Use at a community night to promote awareness of the need for sustainability in your community.

Stay safe online and know what to do if you need help. Go to ThinkKnow, a website dedicated to Internet safety for young people. Find safety information, how to have fun, stay in control, report a dangerous situation, songs, and activities geared toward educating young people about safe Internet use. Grouped by age, find information for 5-7, 8-10, 11-13, 14+, parent, and teacher areas to target the appropriate information. Some videos are hosted on YouTube. 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.

tag(s): digital citizenship (59), internet safety (108), professional development (123)

In the Classroom

Before you begin work with any tool on the Internet, educate students with the most important lessons, keeping safe! Choose the age group and follow the lessons together as a group on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Continue discussions on your class blog. Add parents to your blog so they can reinforce lessons on Internet safety. Then it is time to introduce the Appropriate Use for Technology permission form, and this will now make sense to kids. Bookmark this site on classroom computers so students can refer to the information. Be sure to offer as a tool for parents to review and reinforce at home. At your technology night, have this up on your projector screen while parents are entering, so all get a needed reminder. Be sure student technology clubs examine and understand the concepts. Have the student technology club make their own videos introducing safety concepts.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session from August 2015, opens in Adobe Connect. Once upon a time, teachers wanted to make content meaningful and relevant to their students' lives. They carefully crept into the TeachersFirst world of Ok2ask and the world of Digital Storytelling! There, revealed to all teachers, were ways to promote higher level thinking skills and multiple intelligences in content areas to increase enduring understandings of any unit or topic. Along the way, they discovered; what digital storytelling is, how to plan, develop, find web-based tools to assist, and evaluate. Around the bend, the teachers uncovered resources to promote collaboration and sharing of the story.

More than likely there is an app for that! Let our team of BYOT "tech-perts" help you find useful free tools to get started with BYOT or complement your current app offerings.

We will share management strategies for all levels. Participants will also try out tools to organize their students, their classrooms, and themselves!
