On October 6th, I joined the teachers from Chase River Elementary and Cinnabar Elementary to learn more about Google Apps. Three teachers from Quarterway Elementary came to speak about how they incorporate technology into the classroom and how they use Google Apps within their planning and teaching.
The start of the morning the three ladies from Quarterway introduced themselves and talked about how they began passionate about technology. We got to see how to incorporate various resources into our classrooms through activities using a variety of websites, apps, extentions, and resources. We looked at using:
Plickers, Flippity, Google Classoom, Google Keep, Google extensions (black menu), Class Dojo, Fresh Grade, Wiki Want, Read and Write, and a few others.
Through my Inquiry I will explore deeper into these resources to learn about how they can be incorporated into the classroom, their pros and cons, and how useful they are!
