SMS Google Classroom MG_20141208_140904

Mrs. Jordan’s 7th grade Social Studies students at SMS used Google classroom to backchannel conversations during a video.  While students were watching a video about Nefertiti, students posted comments and questions in a chat-like format to a Google classroom discussion.  Students could then respond to each other’s comments or answer other students questions during the video.  This was a great way to get students to learn from each other without interrupting the video.

Seventh grade students in Mrs. Johnson’s Language Arts class at SMS are very active.  Students rotate among different stations daily.  Currently, students are reading and completing activities with A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  Today in rotations, students were looking at specific characters and vocabulary in this famous story.  Students used context clues to define vocabulary words and use the in a sentence.  They then posted these sentences on Google classroom.  In another station, students were creating statements from Scrooge and then deciding how one of the Christmas ghosts would respond to these statements.  Finally, students participate in silent sustained reading.  Stationary bicycles are available during this time to encourage some physical activity while reading.

HB 100_7515

Video creation is a new form of writing that is quickly becoming more and more important. Fourth graders at Burkhart gained some experience with this as they used a Google Add-on called WeVideo to import Conner Prairie field trip pictures, add captions using complete sentences, and publish a video. They quickly grasped these new skills and really enjoyed the project.

PMA Access to Success

Perry Meridian Sixth Grade Academy hosted this year’s first Access to Success Night for parents this past week.  The goal of the evening was to introduce parents to the many technology tools that are used at PMA and present them with relevant information to the proper use of these tools.  Parents rotated through three sessions: Digital Citizenship and Cybersafety presented by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, Skyward/Google Docs/ and Student Email, and Technology-based Curriculum Tools.  The event concluded with students having the opportunity to share their personal laptops and classroom Smartboard technologies with their parents. The next Access to Success Night will focus on obtaining and interpreting student data collected through our technology-based assessments.
