2019-2020 Application of Technology in the classroom

- My students continue to use educational technology in the classroom. Students partipate throught Google Classroom and Skyward Discussion Boards. Students show their knonwledge of content through creating Prezis, google Slides, Google Sites as well as utilizing Coding and Tynker for final products. 

I also utilize Skyward digital dropboxes as well as Google Classroom for Discussion Forums and Digital turn in. Through our onlie learning I utilize Go Guardian to monitor and communicate with studtents and schedule whole class and small group Zooms to check on student progress and understanding as well as utilize it to teach small group instructions and review. 

ONLINE LEARNING:

With COVID19  I have found varies avenues to help students get the most of this time. I Zoom with students on a daily  and weekly basis. With Discussion Forums, Digital Google Forms, Digital Task Cards, Dialectical Journaling and videos of myself to help students understand and get the most out of our online clsassroom. I use Go Guradian to discuss and monitor students work as well as email and Band. We created a Band classroom for both 3rd and 4th grade to allow students to message each other and teachers as well as being able to monitor what is being posted. It has also been an avenue to get information to students out at a whole class level.

2018-2019 Application of Technology in the classroom

 

- My students use technology in a variety of ways in my class. They create websites, google slides and Prezi's for formative instructional presentations as well as pieces of their final PBL projects. They have used QR Code Generators to display websites on a brochure. They have designed and created products using Coding sites such as Scratch. They use sites such as Kahoot and Quizizz to check for understanding of their Student Workshops over specific standards they taught to their class peers. 

-I incorporate technology on a regular basis in my classroom. I have used BlendSpace as a blended learning stations as well as Recap as a formative assessment tool.  For Engineer Week I had both my 4th and 5th grade students complete a Coding Activity from the Hour of Code Site. They received a certificate once they had completed all of the levels. Hour of Code Certificate.png

Evaluations through Technology

 

I have created many Google Forms as formative evaluations over a workshop. I have used Haiku Technology such as discussion questions and set up stations tabs through numerous links and PDFs for students to click though. I use Haiku Assessments to assess formative and summative data to receive immediate feedback. I have implemented several student evaluation apps and programs such as IStation, IXL, and Kids Reading A-Z to help evaluate and monitor student's reading comprehension levels. I have also implemented the Recap App to have students explain plot development with their student created historical fiction stories with Recap videos of themselves. I also have used the Kahoots website within stations to improve student engagement in content when reviewing answers to a passage.


Multiple Platforms of Technology

 

I have taken Master Courses with a focus in Educational Technology improving my knowledge of how to use technology in the classroom. 

I have completed classes : EDCI 5334 Learning Technologies and Disabilities, EDUC 5320 WWW Applications in Education, and am currently taking  EDCI 5333  Innovative Applications.

Technology use with Classroom Management

 

I use a site and an app called Class DOJO as one of my tools for Classroom Management. This app allows me to reward students for expected behaviors. I also use this app as an additional way of parent contact and to keep parents updated on their child's behavior.

Technology Application in the Classroom

 

Technology through Student Products

Students implement technology in my classroom in a variety of ways. Many PBL products are created through creating websites, using Google Docs and Pic College to create  Brochures and Flyers, and students have learned how to create QR codes of their websites to put into their variety of visuals for final products. I have also taught students to use technology such as Popplet to Brainstorm Ideas for PBL.

HOUR of CODE

All of my 4th and 5th graders have also been required to complete the Hour of Code and receive a certificate of completion at https://hourofcode.com/us . Students as well as my self have practiced using code and incorporating it into PBL to help build explanations over their content implementing code through "SCRATCH"

Technology Independent Study/ Digital Citizenship PBL

 

Mrs. Burke-Hicks and I were assigned an Independent Study class that focused on us finding a technology issue with in our school. We choose to address the level of implementation of technology TEKS in the classroom. We decided to create a PBL that focused on teaching the 9 themes of digital citizenship combining Elements of Design in Art, ELA expository compositions, persuasive techniques and nonfiction text structures and features.  Students were assigned one of the 9 themes of digital citizenship and in charge of designing a digital presentation to teach that theme to the 3rd and 4th grade. They also had to create a poster to create awareness as well as an engaging activity to assess the younger students knowledge over the theme that was taught.
