- Fully interactive
- Just like a regular interactive notebook or flip book but the pieces are fully digital. You’ll be able to manipulate without the cutting and pasting.
- No prep
- Rigorous, engaging, technology-rich projects
- Also compatible with Microsoft One Drive
There may be a small learning curve if you’re not used to working with digital products with your students. However, it’s well worth it as it will reinvigorate your teaching and provide students with the opportunity to learn in a technology-rich environment that provides valuable career and college readiness skills.
Plus, as all schools inevitably will, you’ll be one step ahead of the game when your district goes 1:1.
Some major benefits include:
- Students become proficient in working with Google Apps
- Students become more proficient in typing, editing and word processing skills
- Students are given access to college and career readiness skills on a continual basis. Colleges want students who can interact with word processing and typed documents…not students who can cut, glue and fold like a champ (not to say that that’s not a great thing to include for your kids as well…let’s stay with a healthy mix of both)
- No prep. Lose the copy-machine battle and regain your time.
- Full color documents maintain student interest and can help with color-coding and brain imprinting when used properly
- Easy to read (easy to grade)
- Improve typing skills
- Work perfectly with a 1:1 classroom or in any computer lab
- No more lugging heavy notebooks back and forth for grading. All files are saved digitally and accessible from any location as long as you have a computer, phone, or tablet nearby.
- All changes made by you and the student are saved immediately. You won’t have to worry about lost edits or the “he said/she said” argument over school work
- Click the link to access the digital product
- You will be asked if you want to make a copy of the document. YES!
- If the option doesn’t pop up, here’s a video with tips to make a copy of a document.
- Once you have a copy, the sharing method will vary depending on if you use Google classroom or not.
- If you use Google Classroom, check out this video to see how to share a digital assignment with your students.
- If you don’t use Google Classroom, you’ll want to share the document with each of your students. Here’s a video to help you out.
- Once you’ve shared the document with your students, if they’re not using Google Classroom, they’ll need to “MAKE A COPY” just like Step #3. If they don’t, everyone will start typing into one document and it’s going to be a mess. Google Classroom will do this step for you. So, if you’re in Google Classroom, you just saved yourself some work!
- After they’ve made a copy of their document, they can share it with you and you will be able to immediately view all of their work.
