    We’ve done a number of tips about Gmail… but here’s a new one that is super helpful for busy people.

    Is there a certain time of the day when you actually have time to sit down and email? Maybe this is a time when you think others might not be reading their email.

    Say it with a Word Cloud

    Google defines a word cloud as “an image composed of words used in a particular text or subject, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency or importance.”  The word cloud above is from a 1991 report where my sister interviewed my grandpa about his service in the United States Army during WWII. By looking at the image, you will notice certain words are larger and bolder because they appear more frequently in the report.  

    Word Clouds are a fun way to introduce a topic or lesson. It’s also a visual way to showcase students’ feelings or reactions to an activity or worldly event.  read more

    Seesaw Student Journals

    If you have not taken a look at SeeSaw yet then the latest updates to the online student journal app might make it worth your while. SeeSaw has been around for a while and has carved out a niche in the lower elementary grades as a great place for littles to share their projects and ideas in a safe online space. This latest round of updates brings all the ipad features to the chromebook platform.

    SeeSaw is an online student portfolio that lets students post their work in a portfolio viewable by teachers and parents. Once a teacher sets up a classroom in SeeSaw they invite students to login by either scanning a QR code (Grades K-1) or logging in with their school google account. Once logged in, students have a variety of tools they can use to post items to their portfolios. The teacher approves each posting and family members can be invited to view portfolios and post comments and encouragement. read more
