1. Selfie Kahoot
Back to the Selfie! I plan to use Kahoot to start the year when developing classroom community by creating a Kahoot about myself! I encourage you to try it! Let the students in on fun facts - develop those relationships and create those connections! You could even share some facts in your back to school letter and include those in your Selfie Kahoot! Afterwards, let each student create their own "Selfie Question". Compile each students question into a Class Selfie Kahoot. What a great way to give each student the spotlight! (PS: Did you know Kahoot added a preview feature?! See picture below!)
As an avid user of Today's Meet in the classroom to check in with students and as a formative assessment tool, I was over the moon to explore Formative this weekend. I loved the ability to create questions in folders and the option for students to send their drawing as a response (similar to the Draw tool in Nearpod). Realtime results!
A few other resources...
- Seesaw, the student-driven digital portfolio (I've only heard wonderful things!),
- Mystery Skype! Fellow Digital Innovator Todd Flory (@ToddFlory) was a wealth of knowledge on the topic of Mystery Skype. I encourage you to seek him out with questions!
What are your experiences with any of these resources? What other resources do I need to explore? Comment below with your favorite tech tool or tip!
