Distance Learning Technology

Technology Systems and Tools (an introductory inventory)

    • Google Meet & Google Classroom
    • Zoom
    • Email 
    • Educational Apps will be used at teacher discretion. Those may include what is listed below. See teacher communications for more information. 
      • EdPuzzle – for adding questions into videos. Collects only nicknames from students
      • GeoGebra – math app. No information collected, although students can make their own account if they want to
      • Webwhiteboard – for writing on a shared doc. No information collected
      • IXL, Freckle, Khan Academy – self-paced math practice. Tracking progress requires students to set up an account, but this isn’t required
      • Flipgrid – students can make short videos of themselves speaking French. The settings can be adjusted so, depending on the activity, the videos can be moderated/private (only for the teacher to see) or “public” meaning students can watch each other’s videos and record video responses. This is great for interpersonal speaking practice. Only those who are in our Flipgrid class can watch those “public” videos—they are not on the web for the world to see.
      • EdPuzzle – this app allows teachers to embed comprehension questions or quiz questions into a video.
      • Quizlet – this app is for vocabulary study and review. All of our unit vocabulary is on Quizlet separated into “study sets” so students can learn/practice the words on digital flashcards, review them with games Quizlet generates or quiz themselves.
      • Garage Band
      • Audacity – multi-track audio editor
      • Desmos.com – an algebra based graphing app
      • padlet.com – a virtual corkboard
      • Tinkercad – a 3d modeling app
      • Floorplanner – a floorplan creator
      • Parlay – Online Socratic Seminar/class discussion tool
      • Tes Teach/blendspace – supports “flipped” lessons or guided digital lessons with video clips, docs, quizzes and links all in 1 place
