The beginner’s guide to Chromebooks in the classroom - from Jennifer Carey This post first appeared on Daily Genius. In 2014, Chromebooks surpassed iPads in the world of education. There are a variety of reasons for this: economic needs, more “laptop like” feel, and the ubiquity of Google Apps for Education in schools. Unlike iPads, there is no single manufacturer Chromebooks. One of the biggest shifts for traditional computer users is moving away from the concept of installing software to have available while offline. Another shift that can be an initial struggle for new Chromebook users is transitioning to a wholly web-based system. You don’t have icons, a finder menu, or a start menu on Chromebook.

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation I was recently in a third grade classroom and was struck by the presence of rules that were posted for how to have a conversation. The poster said, "Each person must contribute to the discussion but take turns talking. Ask each other, 'Would you like to add to my idea?' or 'Can you tell us what you are thinking?' Ask questions so that you understand each other's ideas. Having visited many middle and high schools, I think these same rules could -- and probably should -- be posted there as well. Maybe you have also observed how common it is nowadays for students to not know how to have a conversation. 8 Tips for Speaking and Listening While it is impossible to know all of the reasons, there is no doubt that learning to listen and talk is an extremely important way to broaden knowledge, enhance understanding and build community. 1. Make a point of having one-to-two minute interactions, one-on-one, at least a few times each week with students who struggle conversationally. "Really?"" 2. 3.

How to Use Chromebooks in the Classroom Internet-connected devices have become an indispensable part of the modern classroom, and an ever-growing number of educators are turning to Chromebooks as their go-to education device. Chromebooks, which are small, web-connected laptops running Google’s Chrome operating system, have recently outpaced Apple iPads and Microsoft devices as the most popular classroom mobile technology. Although only accounting for 1% of devices sold to schools in 2012, Chromebooks have quickly become a teacher favorite. In 2015, more than 4.4 million Chromebooks were sold for K-12 education, accounting for more than half of all devices purchased by schools, CNBC reported. Estimates are only higher for 2016.

Schools Going Global Skype in the Classroom del 1 - Mystery Skype - Hur funkar det? Jag tror att alla vi språklärare vill få in så mycket autencitet i vår undervisning som det bara går. Själv har jag försökt med eTwinning, penpals och lingofriends för att få in det här elementet i min undervisning. Tyvärr, inte med lysande resultat. Genom eTwinning fick vi aldrig igång något utbyte och lingofriends tog tid och många förfrågningar var oseriösa. Under de senaste åren har jag byggt upp ett nätverk av vänner och lärare utomlands som jag gärna tar hjälp av min undervisning. Förra året fick jag syn på Skype in the Classroom som är en del av Skype som riktar sig till lärare, elever och skolor. I inloggningsskedet anger man sina uppgifter och berättar mer om vem man är. Hur kan man då använda Skype in the Classroom i sin undervisning? Mystery Skype Mystery Skype innebär att två klasser skypar med varandra och försöker att genom frågor till varandra ta reda på var respektive klass befinner sig. Man kan direkt på sidan klicka på brevsymbolen för att göra en förfrågan.
