  • Digital Learning Day
    Friday, March 13 is Digital Learning Day
    This event celebrates innovative teaching practices that make learning more personalized and engaging! Are you game to try something new? Here are some ideas for celebrating Digital Learning Day with your class:
    Today's Meet - Give everyone a voice!
    Today's Meet is a backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and digital learners. 

    What's a backchannel? 
    The backchannel is the conversation that goes on alongside the primary activity, presentation, or discussion. 

    Why would I want to use that??
    For example, imagine your class has been studying the Revolutionary war and now they will watch a documentary on the Battle of Gettysburg. You let the students know that following the documentary they will each write a 2-minute eulogy for those who served in the battle; living and now dead. Ask them to jot down notes on TodaysMeet as they watch the video. Tell them the notes will help them create the context for their eulogy. At the end of the documentary there will be a collection of notes contributed by the entire class that all can use to support their writing. When their writing is completed ask them if they are familiar with the Gettysburg address, and read it aloud. Using their notes from TodaysMeet and their eulogies discuss how theirs are similar to, or different from, President Lincoln's Gettysburg address.



    Kahoot!!
    A game-based classroom response system which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. It is web based and works on all types of devices. It allows the teacher to give pre made or impromptu quizzes and polls, while adding in an element of gamification to the classroom. 

    Kahoot!

  • Merge Table Cells in a Google Doc
    Finally!! You can select multiple rows or columns, right click and pick "Merge cells" from the menu. You can also find this feature in the Table menu. If you change your mind, use the "Unmerge cells" menu item. Merged table cells in Word documents can now be imported as well.
