Educational Technology and Resources for Teachers:
Note to teachers - if you would like to incorporate any of these technologies into the classrooms and have questions or would like a demo, just let Ms. Fiel know. Ms. Fiel can also help you with any questions about G Suite for Education tools. There are tons of other tools not listed here - if you want to try blended learning in your classroom and are not sure where to start, that's another question for Ms. Fiel. :)
Epic Books - Free online books for use with your classroom.
Biblionasium - Book review site that can be used as an alternative to AR
Quizlet - Design basic quizes and turn them into games; especially useful for vocabulary
Kahoot! - Live gameshow-style classroom quizes
Symbaloo - If you have content to deliver online, you can use Symbaloo to turn it into a gaming "path" with badges
Google Maps - Have you considered using Google Maps with social study or geography lessons? There are cool ways to incorporate Google Earth and street view to make lessons seem more "real"
Newsela - Current headlines modified for reading level.
We also have access to game-based learning modules on design thinking, financial literacy and socio-emotional learning. If you are interested in setting up a module on one of these topics in your class, talk to Ms. Fiel!
