While you were away enjoying your summer, Google Classroom came out with brand new feature that allows both teachers and students to annotate PDF's and JPG's using the Google Classroom mobile app. Previously, students and teachers would need to have another app, such as Notability, to annotate documents.
Annotation tools within Google Classroom include the eraser, pen, marker, highlighter, and text tool. Using these options, Students can use the annotation feature to draw, sketch, notate, and write out their thinking. Check out the presentation below to learn how to use the annotation features within classroom!
Make your Work Life a little easier with Jeffco's Learning Management System, Schoology!
You've conquered the copy machine, those formative assessment tools have no secrets from you, and you've mastered surfing on the web. Now it's time to take your instruction to a new level.
It's time to use Jeffco's Learning Management System, Schoology. Whether you implement one feature or many, you can enhance your instruction and your students' 21st Century learning style through the use of this versatile system, already on all Jeffco computers!
Have you ever needed to prevent students from searching the internet, the computer or another computer application for information during a Schoology test/quiz? If your school has Chromebooks, you can enable a new feature called a kiosk.
What this feature does is it locks down a testing environment. It prevents digital cheating during online tests/quizzes. Students cannot print, copy or go to another website. Additionally, it prevents anyone from accessing other applications when using this feature.
It's almost here! The Jeffco Tech Share Fair is this Saturday at Arvada West HS from 8:00 am-1:00 pm. Check out the slideshow below for more details on some of the exciting sessions that will be happening.
