MCollaborative Google SlidesGo to Google Drive
Click on NEW
Choose Slides
Share with students through Google Classroom or use "Anyone with the link can edit"
Have students add a slide with their information.
Everyone editing the same Slides at the same time makes it easy to see what everyone is doing. @alicekeelerhttp://www.alicekeeler.com/teachertech/2015/09/10/google-slides-collaborative-group-projects/

ACritique the reasoning of othersInstead of having students swap papers and give peer feedback, create a collaborative Google Slides presentation. Each student inserts a slide and explains their ideas. Students simply go to another slide to insert comments to provide peer feedback. @alicekeelerhttp://slides.Google.com

MCreate a playsheet with game templates on QuiaTake the same questions from your quiz or worksheet and quickly type them up into a Quia game template. Share the link with students through Google Classroom, short URL, or class website. Using games help kids to be more engaged when practicing. The immediate feedback makes for a better learning situation. The positive reinforcement encourages students to keep trying. Students who are not being successful know they need to ask for help. Games, unlike paper worksheets, provide a low risk of failure. Students can play again if unsuccessful. Thus students get more practice and they are more likely to practice correctly. Teachers do not have to hand grade which gives teachers more time to interact with students. @alicekeelerhttp://quia.com/web

MUse a discussion boardTry to start all discussions digitally. Use Google Classroom or a discussion board to have students respond to a prompt. Make sure students can see the responses of other students. In a class discussion only a limited number of students can be heard from. Quiet students often need additional processing time or may not want to share out their ideas verbally. Using a digital platform gives all students an opportunity to respond to the question and have their idea be heard. Sharing student responses allows every student in the class to hear from every student. This information can also be used as formative assessment to see if the design of the lesson needs to take another direction based on student responses. @alicekeelerhttp://classroom.Google.com

MUse Kahoot for formative assessmentOnline competative quiz - students love accumulating points. Allows teacher to quickly compile data to adjust instruction. Like Poll Everywhere, you have to USE the information, immediately addressing misconceptions or using the information to determine differentiation needs.@winslosthttps://www.getkahoot.com/
8
ADigital Student Sign-Ups Use the "Ask a Question" feature on Google Classroom to have students sign up for a variety of topics. Option to allow students to see what has already been taken so there are no repeats.This is similar to getting feedback via Google Form, but for only one question it streamlines the process. Teachers get all responses back in one convenient place.@MrMooreGeohttp://classroom.Google.com
9
MUse Poll Everywhere for formative assessmentSet questions ahead of time - can be entrance or exit ticket activity to help get quick info on where student are in their learning. They love texting answers from their phones and you can see misconceptions and correct them immediately. The key is using the information as it is coming in - don't let mistakes or misconceptions slide or you have defeated the purpose.@winslosthttps://www.polleverywhere.com/
10
AGoogle Form and Share the resultsHave the students complete a form about a topic, maybe the research they found. Then share the sheet of form results so the students are getting many different viewpoints, and more information to view. @robynholsman
11
MA Google A DayUse the website http://agoogleaday.com/ as a warmup to help students learn search techniques. @alicekeelerhttp://agoogleaday.com/
12
MCollaborative Spreadsheet DiscussionUse a spreadsheet shared with the class where each tab is pre set up with a discussion question. Have students collectively contribute their thoughts to each discussion question. Rearrange student answers to look for patterns and to guide classroom discussion. Go to the next tab for the next question.@alicekeelerhttp://www.alicekeeler.com/teachertech/2015/07/15/classroom-discussions-with-google-sheets/
13
ACollect data with a Google FormGo to Google Drive. Click on NEW. Go to More and choose Forms. Add questions you would normally ask on paper. Responses go to a spreadsheet
Collect student information or surveys with a Google Form. Anything students would fill out on paper, use a Google Form. Instead of trying to keep track of paper or type it up, all responses are saved into a Google Sheets spreadsheet. This can be accessed from any mobile device or internet browser. The spreadsheet is easily shared to make it easier to collaborate around the information. Sorting and filtering the data makes it easier to find what you need.

ACoogle itUse this collaborative webbing site to have the students brainstorm their ideas all together, they can insert links, and images. The web helps them organize all their ideas and research in one spot. This tool is good with small groups as each student will need to invite their group members or the teacher will need to create the groups with email invites. @robynholsmanhttps://coggle.it/
16
AKahootKahoot gamifies formative assessment. Students go to https://kahoot.it and enter the game number generated by the teacher. kids love the game environment and will run to class. The immediate data allows you to change your instructional approach immediately. This is A level if you just use it for a quiz. But M level if you actually adapt your lesson in response to the data@alicekeelerhttps://www.getkahoot.com/
17
APadletAn interactive wall where you can post links to websites, photos, and other attachments. You can change the settings to allow other people to post to the wall. Use as an interactive discussion place or a parking lot.Appropriate for all grade levels and very easy to use. I have one for my class links and several others for interactive activities with my students.@CampsCrusadershttps://padlet.com/

AGoogle Docs - Interactive StoriesPut your students in pairs or small groups and give them a topic to write on. The students can access the doc at the same time. The students take on the role of different characters for the story and create dialogue and interactions between each other. Students then keep others in check for correct and meaningful dialogue, correct punctuation, and descriptive writing.My kids LOVED this activity. We tied it in with one of our novel units. They had to rewrite a part of the story from a different point of view or take an important piece out and rewrite the 'new' story.@CampsCrusadersdocs.google.com
19
AWorksheet answers on a spreadsheetRather than having students fill out answers on a worksheet have them fill them out on Google Sheets. if the spreadsheet is shared with the teacher, the student can receive faster feedback. Try using a collaborative spreadsheet were all students are responding in the same sheet or on different tabs. Having students respond on a spreadsheet with other students responding can give lpw self efficacy students more confidence to try when they see examples. Students can also easily help each other and provide suggestions. @alicekeelerhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BYHCR5tdjqllV0xTrhenAHSE9Q9hXTn6DjhUP1rNpxQ/copy

MTodaysMeet - BackchannelingBackchanneling is a great way to give students an opportunity to interact when they are being listeners. Use this during fishbowl discussions, watching videos, and listening to presentations. Typically, I use two projectors when teaching - one for the lesson and the other for the backchannel. In addition, I love that I can have an artifact of the backchannel session. @anna_kraftson https://todaysmeet.com/
21
ALino.it - BrainstormVery similar to Padlet. Create boards to collaborate and communicate using text, images, videos, and comments. Teachers can use with the whole class or create boards for specific groups. For groups, students have to have an account. You can use your Google account as your credentials. @anna_kraftson https://linoit.com/session/login
22
MThinglinkHave students Create an interactive image - add tags with pop-up text, images, links, videos etc. to a main image.Great for summarising concepts and as a multimedia brainstorm. Can be embedded into student/class blogs.@froozelyhttps://www.thinglink.com/
23
AGoogle MapsGo to Google Maps when talking about locations in a book you are reading. If you know where a person you are referencing is from, look it up on Google Maps to help give students a global perspective. Next steps is to try street view. But at first, just incorporate using Google maps into your lessons. @alicekeelerhttp://maps.google.com
24
AGoogle DocsPeer review or debates using Google Docs.Allow students to share a Google document that will allow them to collaborate together, conduct a debate, brainstorm ideas, etc.@The_Tech_Ladydrive.google.com
25
MGoogle DrawingsConcept maps using Google DrawingsAllow students to create mind maps, graphic organizers, concept maps to allow them to brainstorm ideas visually. Students will be able to share their document with their peers and collaborate on it together.@The_Tech_Ladyhttp://drawings.google.com
26
AGoogle DocsNote taking in shared Google DocsBy using a shared Google Docs, notes taken are available to all students and accessible by all. Students can develop collaboration skills using the notes that they have shared. Example: Informational writing piece - students take notes online in shared Google Doc. Absent students have access to the notes; students enrich their knowledge with notes taken by other students. @MrsThompsonCESdrive.google.com
27
RGoogle SlideseasyVocabulary and Writing PracticeThe teacher creates a slide presentation. Next, create a NEW assignment in Google Classroom. Attach the slide presentation with the Drive Icon. From the drop-down menu, select, students can EDIT the file. Click "Assign". Discuss commenting protocols with students and how they should NOT edit anyone else's slides, only comment educationally. Next, using your current Vocab list, each student chooses a vocab word, and creates a slide with a definition and image. Then they write a descriptive, "dressed up" sentence with the vocab word in the sentence somewhere on the slide. Faster students can do multiple slides. Students can collaborate and share ideas with others who are working. At the end of the working period, present the slide show. Share it with another class and challenge them to out-do your work.@debbieborn1docs.google.com/presentations
