Google Classroom Tip - Set Up A Fake Class
Set up a fake class in Google Classroom to store your resources, projects and assignments. Use the Repost Feature to pull from those and post to your real classes as needed. This is a great tip from the +EdTechTeam … for more go to http://ow.ly/3lHf3088bag

Google Classroom Tip - Topics in Google Classroom
Don’t forget to fit each assignment into a “Topic”.  This is a great way to designate which unit of study the assignment goes with...making it easier to find later, if needed. +Google for Education 

Ways to Use iPads in the Classroom
  • Challenge students to solve an algebra equation before Siri ​
can present the solution.
  • Ask a student to solve a math problem using the drawing ​
tools in Notes. Use AirPlay Mirroring to share the solution.
  • Snap photos of real-world polygons, add them to an album ​
in Photos, then play a slideshow for your students.

  • Present a science demonstration in real time on a large ​
screen using Camera and AirPlay Mirroring.
  • Switch between miles and kilometers in Maps settings to ​
show the relationship between imperial and metric units.

  • Use the highlight and notes features of iBooks to build study cards for in-class vocabulary review sessions.
  • Keep track of reading fluency for emerging readers using ​
the stopwatch in Clock.
  • Let students who have difficulty typing use dictation and ​
Notes to complete writing assignments.

  • Compare and contrast past and present views of the Berlin ​
Wall using Maps and Safari.
  • Curate a reading list of campaign stories with News to ​
support lessons on global politics.
  • Use World Clock to correlate geography with time zones ​
in different cities.

Would You Rather? (Math)
Modern, relevant math word problems from the EdTech Coach for Chaffey Joint Union HS, also
co-founder and moderator of CAedChat for the state of California (just to name a few of his titles). This is probably most useful for MS/HS math teachers. When you first click on the page, it looks like an ad, but those images are part of each question, scroll down to see the different scenarios. @jstevens009 Thank you +Cool Cat Teacher http://www.wouldyourathermath.com/
