Have you met your building’s Digital Resource Trainer (DRT)? They are great resources for everything Web 2.0!
The District’s DRT and CTI teams have been collaborating this fall to help better support teachers with the Idaho Core Standards and educational technology. As part of the ISEE grant, our teams are working to provide resources for 21st Century Learners.
Each month our DRT and CTI team will focus on one technology tool that teachers can use in their classrooms now. In November, DRTs will be showing teachers how to use Google Drive and Google Form to schedule conferences and record contact information.
Is there a Web 2.0 tool that you love? Let your DRT know and it might just make our list for future trainings. Read the rest of this entry »
Looking for a way to try out QR Codes? Check out this bulletin board!
Digital Resource Trainer Jessica Lamb used QR Codes and Show Me to create visual audio recordings of her second graders’ personal narratives. Students were able to publish their work using both traditional and digital methods and anyone with a smart phone or tablet can listen to students sharing their narratives. Stop by Mullan Trail Elementary to see these QR codes at work!
Looking for a quick data collection tool? How about a way to make a quick assessment, survey, or log? Google forms might be a tool for you!
What is a Google Form? A Google Form is an easy to use data collection tool that is free from Google. Google forms allows you to easily create a visually appealing user-friendly form in a matter of minutes! After your recipients complete your form, your data is organized into a spreadsheet and digital summary for your review! You can create questions in multiple formats and types as well as sort the data that has been collected!
Uses: You can use Google forms in a variety of ways including: scheduling, small assessments, parent or student data collection, logs, surveys. Your building DRTs will present some ways they can be used your schools soon!
