Kahoot!

Edulastic

This month I am focusing attention on the Google Docs portion of our Google Apps for Education. Some of you may have questions about why we should use Docs with our students and other teachers. I will be more than happy to discuss some of those reasons with you, but here are just a few:* Instant collaboration* Control over who has access to each file* Never have to save again* Files are available anywhere, on any device, as long as there is internet connectivity* Easily convert docs into various forms, including Microsoft Word files (.docx)* Build living documents--anytime an update to a file is completed, all users will see those changes in real-time.* 100% free for all users

A Kahoot is a collection of questions on specific topics. Created by teachers, students, business-people and social users, they are asked in real-time, to an unlimited number of “players”, creating a social, fun and game-like learning environment. Watch a group of students using Kahoot! in the video below or open the Tutorial Guide to read all about it! If you want to utilize this free tool in your classroom, contact me and I can help you get set up!Kahoot Tutorial Guide

Edulastic is an online assessment tool for teachers and students. It is completely free to use in classroom settings.Teachers can upload their students into Edulastic, then create dynamic assessments for students to take online. There is no print version of the test. However, the tests are under Creative Commons, so you can copy and paste them into your own assessments.For more information, contact me or watch the following videos and links:Edulastic TeachersEdulastic Training Hub
