Technology Gems, Ideas, and Facts

Gem ~ a website or application that might work well for you or your students

That Quiz is a site that offers free online quizzes on a variety of subjects at all grade levels. There are options to set the number of questions, difficulty, use of a timer, etc. Students can take the quizzes without having to create an account. Teachers don’t need to create an account, but if you do, you can create and design your own quizzes, assign them to students using a link or a test code, and  track your students’ progress. The site seems easy to use and could provide teachers with a quick way to develop differentiated assessments for students.  (http://www.thatquiz.org/)

Idea ~ a way to enhance your LFS lessons with technology

Thinking about extending your students’ thinking? Check out these resources from AEA 267 in Iowa. Click on each Extending Thinking Skill to find a page of resources related to teaching that skill. Permission is granted for educational use of all of their materials. (http://www.aea267.k12.ia.us/cia/index.php?page=thinking_skills#glance)

Fact ~ just a bit of information

I’ve had a few requests for after school technology sessions to help teachers earn additional Act 48 hours. I welcome this idea, as I’m always looking for ways to help teachers grow.  Based on interest we can offer sessions on a wide variety of topics. Perhaps a grade level or department would like to design a series to meet their specific needs. We can schedule flexible times to try to meet the needs of our various daily start and end times. If you would be interested in a series of before or after school technology sessions, please leave a comment or email me.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
