Emojis, creativity, formative assessments... so much! - Techie Tuesday 11/12

Hi, Blog Followers! Here is this week's Techie Tuesday. You can see the tips from the past weeks (or last year) and access all of the links by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.


As a reminder, here is the menu of ways I can serve you: Co-Teaching: Two heads are better than one! Let me teach with you for a day! We can work together to make sure that problems are solved and students get the individual attention they need. I should probably be involved in your planning as well for this to be most effective. Google Expeditions would be included in this option.Feedback: Our students crave timeline and specific feedback. Teachers are no different. Invite me over and let me join your class! I can debrief with you afterwards and talk about what I saw. I am purely non-evaluative so I can offer stress-free coaching and mentoring.Model Teaching: Don't feel confident enough to teach a lesson that uses a lot of technology? I&#…

Hi, Blog Followers! There are a couple quick hits for this week's Techie Tuesday. One bit to notice is that I now have a calendar on my site for where I am based each day. That does not mean you can't book me at any school (please do because I need to get my steps in). It is meant to give you a heads up for where I plan to "hang my hat" if you want to stop by and catch me in your school. Of course, I might be in a meeting, but I thought that it might be helpful. Let me know what you think!

Hi, Blog Followers! Phew! Conference season is officially wrapped up. Seven presentations at two conferences in two states. And I learned so much to bring back to you, too. I'll be sharing content from both conferences in the weeks ahead. One of the "oldie but a goodie" tools that was frequently used during MassCUE sessions last week would be Mentimeter, which I share in this weeks tech tips.

Google Classroom Tricks, converting to Google Docs, augmented reality... so many thoughts!

Hi, Blog Followers! I'm going to be heading to MassCUE before 5AM tomorrow morning to spend two days presenting in Gillette Stadium and being a sponge to learning as much as I possibly can with our neighbors to the south. It's always very interesting to see "how things are done" in another state, so I am expecting to be very overwhelmed by the end of the day on Thursday. Because I'll be off campus, I might not get back to you as quickly as you'd like. But I'll be back on Friday!

Susie's Techie Tuesday for October 15th

Hi, Blog Followers! PHEW! What a whirlwind. Last week I gave 5 presentations at the annual ACTEM conference in Augusta. If you want to see what all of the sessions were AND access the resources for them, you can check out the shared notes for each session through this document. It was an exhausting two days and I'm the first to admit that I'm still recovering and getting caught up on my emails.
Now on to my tech tips for the week. You can see the tips from the past weeks (or last year) and access all of the links by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck. From automatically generating captions when presenting Google Slides (including newly released options for them) to tackling your procrastination monkey to keyboard shortcuts... there is a lot to cover! Let me know what you think or if you have a suggestion for how I can make these emails more valuable for you.

Instagram, Naviance, Liveschool... oh my! (Susie's Techie Tuesday for October 8th)

Hi, Blog Followers! I'm going to be out of the district from Wednesday afternoon until Friday night this week. I'll be in Augusta presenting five sessions at the annual ACTEM conference and helping to support the conference committee as a board member. If you don't hear back from me as quickly as you'd like, that would be why. Be sure to follow #ACTEM19 on Twitter to see what is happening and learn from the presenters even though you aren't there with us. It's a great way to expand your professional learning network (PLN)!

Susie's Techie Tuesday for October 1st

Hi, Blog Followers! Today begins the busiest month for me. I can't believe how fast the first month flew by! This month I'll be presenting at ACTEM19 again and, for the first time, taking on a new role as a board member. I'd love to have more teachers join me next year, so keep it in mind! I'll also be heading back to present at MassCUE, which is a Gillette in Forborough. Doing a session in a box overlooking the field is an experience I cannot accurately describe in words.
Now on to my tech tips for the week.

This week I've added in a sound component with a podcast episode I think is work listening to. This week is goes hand in hand with my "Tools of the Week". Have a suggestion for how I can make these emails even more helpful? Let me know what you think!
