How-To Create an Interactive Word Wall with #ScannableTech An Interactive word wall can transform spaces in your classroom. They provide a way for students to engage with content in an authentic matter and promote a sense of curiosity among your students. As a classroom teacher I used #ScannableTech in many different ways and wrote a book sharing ideas, tips and tricks for using this technology in the classroom.

A word wall is a staple in most classrooms. From primary grades to high school your vocabulary words for a unit of study are prominently displayed for students to reference.

Expert Opinions Five Apps Students Can Use To Make Podcasts - KQED "I can spend time helping students develop their stories rather than explaining the app," says Amanda Suttle, an English teacher who's using the Anchor app to help her juniors and seniors get their podcasts in shape at Licking Valley High School in Newark, Ohio.

10 Sites Teachers Really Love 10 Sites Teachers Really Love (Sorry Admins) Though it’s the administrators’ job to steer the ship with regards to technology use in school, every teacher has their favorite edtech websites and apps they love to use with their students.

New versions of Research Smarter resource sheets now available! – Information Literacy Website The CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG) has issued new versions of its Research Smarter resource sheets, which are designed to help secondary school students research effectively and be information literate. The original set of leaflets was produced in early 2016, in collaboration with the TeenTech initiative, but these were largely intended to meet the requirements of the schools that bid for awards in TeenTech’s annual competitions.

For instance, the sheets cover areas such as defining research questions; choosing/using search engines; evaluating information; referencing your research; and copyright issues.

How to add content on the master to avoid moving or deleting it by mistake in... Locking the teacher content. If you want your students to work on your slides, you should work on the master. If you use Google Slides for assignments or if you wish to share your file with other users to work on, but want to prevent students or collaborators to move or delete something by mistake, you can add your “do not touch” content on the master.
