Bring your lessons to life with Expeditions | Google for Education

Google Expeditions allows a teacher to guide students through collections of 360° scenes and 3D objects, pointing out interesting sites and artifacts along the way. I would use this to take students on "field trips" if we weren't able to physically go or did not have the funds to travel. It allows students to explore new locations. It helps students learn about different places all over the world. As a teacher I would use it to relate to the information we would be learning in the classroom.

Flipgrid - Video for student engagement and formative assessment

Flipgrid is where social and emotional learning happens! The leading video discussion platform for millions of PreK to PhD educators, students, and families. I would use this so my students could post their opinions and post discussion videos. It allows the students to express themselves and their thoughts in a quick video. You can have class discussions when not in the classroom. Also, if a student is afraid to create a video in class, they are able to create the videos at home as well.

Nearpod | Technology in the classroom

Nearpod is an interactive classroom tool for teachers to engage students with interactive lessons. I would create presentations that could be sent to the student's devices or phones. You can have the students interact while you are presenting as well. As a teacher I can even track the progress during the presentation. It is better than a typical lecture and promotes participation.

A Universe of Learning

BrainPOP - Animated Educational Site for Kids - Science, Social Studies, English, Math, Arts & Music, Health, and Technology. BrainPop is a fun website that has videos, games, and quizzes. It covers all grade levels and many classroom topics. I would use it to have my students learn in a fun way and send them assignments to complete to show their progress.

ABCya! • Educational Computer Games and Apps for Kids

ABCya is a website that allows elementary students to play games that help with learning. I would allow students to play these games as a reward. Also, you can promote it as an incentive when they have free time within the classroom. It would be fun for the students, but still helps them learn at the same time. This would help with my second or third grade level students.

We're on a Mission to Expand Knowledge of Vocabulary Words and Reading Comprehension.

Improve knowedge of vocabulary words with spelling practice from VocabularySpellingCity. Our engaging phonics games for kids help students become spelling masters. I would use Spelling City prior to any spelling test I would give. I would create a list of the words and send it to the students. They can play games, take practice tests and prepare for the upcoming test. It will increase grades because the students will be learning the words, while playing games.

Website at https://www.remind.com/

Remind is an app that can be used by teachers, students, and parents. Teachers are able to send out information regarding tests, assignments, or upcoming events to parents and students. It doesn't require a phone number, but users can still text back and forth. I would use this to update students when they have assignments due. Also, it will be easy to communicate with the parents.

Little Bird Tales: Capture the Voice of Childhood. We offer a fun,unique way to create,record and share stories online. Kids can make drawings,upload photos or artwork and record their voice online,creating a slideshow format book,then share it with family and friends as gifts or a keepsake. Environmentally friendly and great for schools,too. I would use it to have my students create stories about the topics we are learning within the classroom. Also, it can show how much information the students are retaining and understanding. We could have story time with the stories created by students in the classroom. It will promote their artistic skills and promote them to narrate or speak in front of the classroom.
