Self Evaluation Rubric When assigning students projects that have a rubric, I recommend having students self-evaluate against the rubric. This helps students to make sure they have addressed the project requirements and to conduct self-reflection. Create a Google Sheets spreadsheet for your rubric. Have a column for the student to indicate their level on the rubric and a column to justify their choice. The same rubric can be used by you to evaluate the student against the rubric. alicekeeler.com/selfeval In this template, you will want to create the rubric, place points possible in H3, and place the assignment name in J1. When you create an assignment, include the self-evaluation rubric as “Make a copy for each student.” The student will find the rubric by clicking on OPEN on the assignment in the Google Classroom stream and clicking on the attached rubric template. The student will add their name to the rubric and fill in columns for student score and student justification of score. Like this: Like Loading...
How to use search like a pro: 10 tips and tricks for Google and beyond | Technology Search engines are pretty good at finding what you’re looking for these days, but sometimes they still come up short. For those occasions there are a few little known tricks which come in handy. So here are some tips for better googling (as it’s the most popular search engine) but many will work on other search engines too. 1. The simplest and most effective way to search for something specific is to use quote marks around a phrase or name to search for those exact words in that exact order. For instance, searching for Joe Bloggs will show results with both Joe and Bloggs but not necessarily placed sequentially. The exact or explicit phrase search is very useful for excluding more common but less relevant results. 2. If exact phrase doesn’t get you what you need, you can specifically exclude certain words using the minus symbol. A search for “Joe Bloggs” -jeans will find results for Joe Bloggs, but it will exclude those results for the Joe Bloggs brand of jeans. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
How to Expertly Organize Your Classroom With Google Sites | EdSurge News A few months into my personalized learning foray, I got stumped by the challenges of organizing a blended curriculum. I couldn’t figure out how to coordinate all of the links, playlists, videos, and regular classroom stuff and it slowed down learning. But I’m grateful that one of my co-workers gave me a tip: Build a Google Site, like this example here. (Click it!) Google is a “what you see is what you get” kind of organization: Google Docs lets you make documents (and more), Forms lets you make forms (and more), and more. Websites exist to share information, broadcast the news, help people connect, and more… right? Whether a student is taking Calculus or 5th grade Social Studies, the features showcased below will help teachers to help kids deeply engage with their courses as they build fluency with technology and digital literacy. Favorite Google Site Features (and How to Use Them) Calendar: Google Calendars can be inserted into any Google site with ease. IMPORTANT! Happy Googling!
google 839 × 288 - googlepolicyeurope.blogspot.com Personalizing Social Emotional Learning with Google Forms When I was a classroom teacher, the best “tech” I had access to was a shared VCR/DVD player and a cracked overhead projector. As a result, I was unable to leverage technology for better “personalization” in my classroom, and so I leveraged relationships, instead. I “personalized” by getting to know my students deeply--beyond just their academic strengths and weaknesses. By knowing what was going on at home, their emotional triggers and what motivated them, I was able to make sure their needs were met beyond my classroom - which led to much greater academic success within it. Now, I am an Assistant Principal at Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School, and my school has all the technology I was missing. With more than 480 students under my care, I can’t have consistent, meaningful conversations with each individual student. Scenario For a program like this to be most effective, we need to know what is going on with our students on a level beyond academic data and visible behaviors.
