Tech Tools for Reading/Writing Workshop 1 of 2

I haven't written all week because summer school started the this week. I am the tech director for our 5 summer school programs. We are rolling out 1,000 new iPads with the new Apple School Manager Configuration. More on that in an up coming blog post. 

Today's post is supposed to be about Conferring during the Workshop Model. I thought I would let you know what tech tools might be used during Reading and Writing Workshop. 

Student Response
Why you should integrate technology:
  • Interactive
  • Increased participation
  • Increased engagement
  • Increased reflection
  • Immediate feedback
  • Useful data to drive instruction 
Digital Tools to Consider:
Everyone loves Kahoot (@GetKahoot) because it feels like being on a game show.  They continue to make improvements to their site, like Ghost Mode. This is when students play again to beat their previous score and get immediate feeback.



My favorite is Socrative (Sa krat ive) (@Socrative). You get more options with Socrative, multiple choice, true/false and short answer. You even have a team competition option called Space Race. They recently announced a PRO version with lots more features and analytics. I like it because there is a teacher and student app for iOS.

A list of a few different options to consider from Richard Byrne - FreeTech4Teachers for student response systems.

Reader's Response
Why you should integrate technology:
  • Teacher access
  • Student access
  • Dialogue
  • Photos
  • Archivable
  • Sharable
  • Explain thinking
  • Sense of audience

Digital Tools to Consider for Blogging:
Seesaw (@Seesaw) is a little over a year old and was launched as a digital portfolio system. They have added a blogging feature that is easy to use. There is an iOS app available for Seesaw.



Weebly (@weebly) is another great option for blogging. You get 40 free accounts for students and there is no Terms of Use restriction for students under age 13. Weebly has an iOS app. 


Kidblog used to be a good option till they went subscription based. 

Please see this chart from Richard Byrne - FreeTech4Teachers on more info on blogging platforms.

It is getting late. I want to post before midnight and have more to write about tomorrow. I will write post 2 tomorrow with suggestions for 
Conferring
Fluency
Annotating Text.

  5. My Mark McDaniel from Ohio USA, I'm married and blessed with 2 kids (male). Myself and my wife provides for our kids and make sure they are happy. One weekend while I was home, I noticed my first son rude behavior. I talked to him to change his sudden behavior yet to no avail. I became so worried then I searched online for every possible help I could get. A saw a comment of someone parent who had similar experience then I talked to them via email.
    They told me about DR Odinani Owell the great spell caster helped them change the life of their kids too who became so rude all of a sudden. They give me DR Odinani Owelle the great spell email then I wrote to him, telling him about my son sudden behaviour.
    DR Odinani Owelle the great spell caster gave me his words that in 2 weeks time, my son is gonna be back to his normal behaviour. Dr Odinani Owell the great spell caster asked me to make purchase of certain items which I did and the item we so cheap. I had doubt in myself that how can such little items bring back my son to his normal self until the fifth day of the second week.
    My son woke up in the morning, came to my room, began to apologies for his sudden behaviour. My heart was filled with laughter and smile arouse my face. I embraced him and I told him I've forgiven him.
    To others out there, don't keep your problems to yourself. Share it with a friend or search for possible solutions online. You too can write to Dr Odinani Owelle the great spell caster if you've any problem,,,,,,,, Here's he's email odinanisolutioncentre@gmail.com or odinanisolutioncentre1@gmail.com
