Share your screen as needed to provide information on assessments and student work.

Have your students set up collaborative groups for projects, lab data, and more. Anything students can do on a single computer; they can do collaboratively on this tool, accessing their work from any online computer. Be sure to test out this tool before using with your class.

In the Classroom

Replace some of your current written Native America resources with the genuine artifacts and stories available for viewing on this site.

After students have time to explore, create groups to do in-depth research within the four different featured areas. Create a Padlet, reviewed here, with four columns for students to share web and video resources found during their research. Instead of written or oral presentations, ask student groups to create quizzes for their classmates using a quiz-creation tool like Baamboozle, reviewed here. Baamboozle is a quick and easy resource for creating and sharing quizzes for teams of two. As a final project, transform student learning by using Book Creator, reviewed here, to create class books sharing information about Native Americans. Book Creator is a digital book creation site offering the ability to add images, text, video, and more. Be sure to share student-created books on your class website or blog after publication.

Humans of New York was supposed to be a photography project; then it evolved into a vibrant blog featuring the individual stories and portraits of people around the world. Browse through the site to read stories of people from every walk of life in the United States. Choose the countries link to read featured stories from over 20 countries around the world. Don't forget to visit the "series" link to find poignant stories based on themes like pediatric cancer and refugee stories.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (134), new york (27)

In the Classroom

Each story included on this site is only about a paragraph long, perfect to use with reluctant readers or as a short introduction to lessons on a variety of social issues. Help students identify the key concepts found in each story by creating a word cloud using Wordsift, reviewed here. Use the keywords found in your word cloud as a starting point for students to begin researching the topic further - examples might be research into refugees, drug abuse, or childhood illness. As students become familiar with the site, use it as an example to create your own site as a class related to your curriculum. For science create a Humans of Chemistry, in social studies create a Humans of the American Revolution, or in language arts create a Humans of Shakespeare. Use a presentation tool like Sway, reviewed here, to share finished projects that include student writing, photographs or drawings, videos, and other multimedia. Use Sway for a variety of assignments in any classroom that is integrating technology as an enhancement, modification, or transformation. Have students work together to compare and contrast their findings as part of a discussion within ongoing podcasts. Anchor, reviewed here, is an augmentation tool offering free podcasting creation and sharing and many features for both new and experienced podcasting teams.

Are you looking for some of the best content on the web? Use Mix to browse and search for information based on your interests and those of like-minded people. Mix imports content from news sources, popular blogs, and additional world-wide resources. The more you browse and save material, the more Mix will refine its understanding of what you like. Create collections by adding information found on the site or by keeping links to web content found as you browse the Internet. Use Mix's web browser extension to save URL's to collections with just one click. When ready to share your collection, use the share icon to copy the link, send via email, or share on social media.

tag(s): bookmarks (53), evaluating sources (16), social networking (92)

In the Classroom

Use Mix for your personal research and professional development. Visit Mix occasionally to find new ideas and new sites for teaching. Create and share collections of websites to share with students for use with research projects. For example, as you prepare to teach a science unit on plants, create a collection containing news articles, explainer sites, and online games for students to use as a virtual resource for supplementing classroom lessons. Include documents, slide presentations, and more from your Google Drive for student access from any device. Another use of Mix is to create collections when teaching students how to evaluate online resources. Create a collection from a variety of different resources based on the same topic and ask students to reflect upon the validity of the information and the source. Ask them to use a presentation tool like Sway, reviewed here to share their findings by including links to the information along with supporting evidence. Another idea for using Mix is for students to create collections to share as part of multimedia projects as a virtual bibliography. In addition to websites shared, ask them to add their written work, images, or other creations. Mix is an excellent tool for creating an online portfolio for students to use when applying to college. Show students how to easily create new collections using their work, but personalized to individual college applications.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from July 2019, opens in Adobe Connect. Transform your students into historians and model digital citizenship across all subject areas as they analyze and learn from primary sources. Primary sources are the puzzle pieces of real-world evidence that students can use to learn about historical events, people, and everyday life.

Participants will review primary source formats and identify where you can find them online. Participants will also learn various strategies for curating and selecting age and ability-appropriate primary sources and designing activities that encourage students to analyze, evaluate, think critically, and use deductive reasoning skills. Participants will: 1. Review what primary sources are and where to find them online; 2. Learn various teaching strategies for selecting and using age and ability appropriate primary sources in the classroom; and 3. Plan for the use of primary sources in your educational setting.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from July 2019, opens in Adobe Connect. Have we got a powerful, engaging, video discussion-based instructional strategy for you! Make room in your lesson plans for Fliphunts. Take free discussion-based edtech tool Flipgrid, add a well-crafted lesson along with a dash of any content area at any grade level; then stir in a heaping serving of critical thinking, creativity, and student voice and you have a fun a formative assessment to inform your instruction. Fliphunts are video-based scavenger hunts organized within Flipgrid -- get kids active in kinesthetic learning while immersing them in content. Challenge your students to show-what-they-know with a Fliphunt. Participants will: 1. Learn the basic use of Flipgrid to record responses and set up a grid; 2. Understand ways to use Fliphunts as formative assessment; and 3. Begin planning a Fliphunt for your classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
