Solutions built for teachers and students | Google for Education

Schools and universities are using Google’s products, programs, and philanthropy to help them improve learning and innovation.

The interactive whiteboard platform where people collaborate, share, and learn without boundaries.

One of the most powerful tools that you can use to help students verbalise their learning.

Ulearn Learner Agency and Digital Tech - Google Slides

We presented at ULearn17. Here is a copy of our presentation. If you would like to know more, please contact us: cushla@sjb.school.nz

Scratch - Imagine, Program, Share

Scratch is a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.

Stop Motion Studio

A great app for allowing students to be creative with their learning and produce original videos.

A new Extended Reality Platform from HP

Formally known as Aurasma, this allows teachers to use images as QR codes to embed online content around their room. Can be a bit "gadgety" so it needs to be implemented carefully.

THE LITERACY SHED - Splash

A website for teachers filled with ideas for literacy teaching using visual resources such as film, animation, photographs and picture books.

We're on a Mission to Build Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension.

VocabularySpellingCity aims to improve mastery of vocabulary words, present engaging spelling practice, and create fun phonics games for kids to help them read.

Worth subscribing to. This also allows teachers to upload their own spelling lists. We have school-wide spelling lists that students are rewarded for moving up the levels. They determine their own pace. This app pushes activities and tests using the students own words.

Prototec Basic Facts Maths Practice

A fairy basic tool yet effective in testing students on their number knowledge. Don't over-use.

Khan Academy | Free Online Courses, Lessons & Practice

Want to push your students (particularly your gifted maths students), then this app/site is essential. Students can either work through activities on their own or the teacher can push them activities by being a "coach". You can track what the students do on this site.

You can learn anything. Expert-created content and resources for every subject and level. Always free.

Bek Galloway - Resources

The hubs that Bek Galloway created and then sold to our school meant that we were given the push we needed to provide our students with self-direction which is guided by the teacher. These hubs are used school-wide. Best $$ we spent.

Engage, Enable, Empower
