Being an online teacher, I regularly need to depend on other educational technology tools to supplement the curriculum. In this session, we are going to explore the benefits of EdPuzzle. This tool has helped me assess students in a formative way. It allows users to either crop a video or even edit a video with audio notes. The most important part is you can embed quizzes in each video you find on the internet. Another important feature is using all the EdPuzzle videos that are stored in the database. This tool has made me re-invent the wheel but at times also just use the wheel.

The second part of the session I am going to show how to use CK12.org. This site has been a great way to find new resources from open-ended questions, to real-life application problems, and even have the opportunity to use simulators. The list goes on. The best part it is free and it covers Math and Sciences, yes even specific sciences in both middle school to high school levels.

The third part of the session I was planning to focus on the use of Desmos Classroom Activity, where it is an excellent tool to use especially for Math lessons from middle school to high school. I have also used it in my Physics 30 class in the lenses unit. There are a variety of benefits using this program from the use of Polygraph (a student asks questions to figure out what that student has as a card), MarbleSlide (challenge activities on the topic you specifically want), Card Sort (where you connect cards that match the topic on hand) and the list goes on.

Overall, I will also provide a summary of all tools that are being used at our online school to enhance your everyday classroom.

This session is geared for Division 3 and 4.
