This year on the blog I will be sharing a Macbook tip with each new blog post. In addition, I will continue to share Google tips and tools. This weeks Google tip is about a QR Code Generator that is a free add-on.
Discovery Education Board Builder
If you need to set up an account, please contact Dr. Sipe either at extension 1007 or by email.
Boards can be used to :
Develop lessons for students. Include written and audio instructions, documents, links, images, and video. One possible use for this type of board would be for flipping instruction. Students would interact with board content outside of class, leaving class time available for discussion, problem-solving and hands-on exploration of the material that students have already been exposed to.
Create a digital SOS activity. Pick an SOS strategy that fits instructional goals. Use Board Builder to provide students with the content to use as they work through the strategy. Discovery Education's SOS area has a variety of strategies that can be incorporated in lesson design.
Provide an exemplar for students so they know what elements must be included in their own boards. Use text box styles such as the sticky note to provide commentary on important components that students need to include on the boards they create.
Create an interactive glossary of vocabulary words for a unit of study. Use Discovery Education Interactive Glossary terms, or write words and definitions using the text box tool. Record audio that reads the text to students, or record a video that provides audio and video support for learning the vocabulary. Assign the board to students so they have access to the glossary through the Student Center Assignments tab.
