Tech tutoring available

I’ve noticed over the last few years that my colleagues have questions about technology integration that can’t be answered well in a few minutes at the copy machine. Or they take a class but it doesn’t really address their pressing needs for how to effectively use tech with students for improved engagement, workflow, grading, creation, etc.

I’m here to help! I created a short page that lists a lot of the basic needs educators seem to have, along with a contact form. Though this was designed to help people locally, I can also tutor over Skype or create short videos that can be watched at your convenience. Best of all, the tutoring session includes email follow-up and support.

This is a HUGE timesaver because you can personalized service so you can be more efficient with your time once you get started with your project.

Flipped Learning Trainer

https://www.credential.net/embed/u4er4aksI just finished this short certification from Flipped Learning Global. Though I have been leading professional development workshops on flipped and blended learning for a long time now, the certification training gave me some ideas for how to improve those workshop sessions, especially since in the early fall I will be adapting the workshop to a one-credit class format.

Google Trainer

I made it! I learned A LOT as I went through the Fundamentals and Trainer courses even though I started them thinking I already knew a lot. If you want to deepen and affirm your knowledge of Google Suite apps you cannot go wrong with this program.trainer badge

Grade all the things!

Seriously, this is the most fun I have ever had grading. It’s WAY more fun if the student has not done well though… I feel like I should find a way to turn that around.

A little while ago I followed the directions on Alice Keeler’s site to start using Bitmoji (it’s a free app that create a cute little version of yourself) outside of text messages. In Chrome, I installed the Bitmoji extension so now I can drag and drop my little avatars.

Since I’ve been using Google Classroom with my seniors, and this great little digital interactive notebook I got from Teachers Pay Teachers, it’s super fun to use Bitmoji as comments on their work. I cannot even tell you how endlessly entertaining I find this. I wish I could make my own in order to customize comments. I bet I can, actually…
