My teammates and I are now Skyping into each other's classrooms!
yes, I am teaching a lesson from the resource "Notice nd Note": Signposts. These are reading techniques authors put into their fictional texts, to draw the readers' attention.
Today I was able to teach the lesson while Jim's class Skyped in. They had the same text, marking it up s I and my class spoke to them and their students. Both classes enjoyed the experience.
We will be Skyping tomorrow, part 2 of the lesson.
When we bring in our teammate tomorrow into the experience.
We want to try Google Talk....if we cn get it going quickly, meaning tomorrow morning!
There are three things I want to look into, to enrich my teaching and the students' learning:
-Doctopus and Google Class.
My Q is:
1.)What is the difference between the two? Is one better than the other?
2.) Flubaroo: I still need help using this pp to help with scoring of online assessments through Google forms.
3.) Voice to text features: Jim and I are trying to get this started .
Can anyone help?
