Chromebooks, Cast, Jamboard & Kami: The Fearsome Foursome


Do you remember back in teacher college when the professors taught us that our proximity to misbehaving students would help squash behavior problems? I do. Well, when using our classroom technology, we are typically tethered to our laptop, desktop, document camera, etc... This is a problem, but luckily there may be a solution.
Tools You'll Need
Google Cast for Education gives students and teachers the ability to share their screens to the classroom projector or interactive display.

Kami is an amazing tool that gives teachers and students the functionality of an interactive board in the palm of their hands. It allows users to annotate a doc, slide, pdf, image, etc…
Google Jamboard is a whiteboard app that can be accessed online and as an app on your tablet of choice. It's also a very expensive interactive display, but that's not what we're looking at here. Students can create a new Jamboard, share and collaborate with classmates, and/or share via Google Cast for Education. The options aren't limitless but it definitely serves a purpose. Just think, no more old school whiteboards, markers and crusty socks for wiping 'em clean.

Trust me, you'll thank me in August when you drag your tanned, relaxed body back to school. Below you will find a few simple steps that will help clear that cloudy qi of yours. Let's get started. Tip #1 - Return all student work Once students are finished working on an assignment, they turn it in. You then look it over, provide feedback and grade the darned thing. At that point, you should return the document back to the student. Hoarding documents isn't anything to brag about, people. Make sure you return the work. Here's why. When a student turns in an assignment, you are now the owner of that document, and the student is relegated to view only rights. Once you return the work, the studen

From iPads to Chromebooks

The time has come for many of us in education. We're making a shift from the iPad to the Chromebook. This is a daunting, intimidating, scary as heck transition for teachers and rightly so. It's like when I finally decided to lose the mullet a few years ago. It was comfortable because I knew exactly how much Aqua Net was required to make my really short bangs stand attention, while that mudflap in the back waved in all its glory. But, I digress. My point is this. The iPad, much like the mullet, was fun while it lasted, but there's a new sheriff in town, and its name is Chromebook.
