Giving kids choice, agency, and options increases your ability to hear from everyone. What tools can assist with providing choice? Remove barriers for students by selecting tools that allow more students to participate. Ask yourself, “How can we leverage tools that my students and I already use?” Seesaw - An any age tool! Seesaw breakdown: Teachers push out activities (assignments) to students. Students can respond to an activity as directed or more open ended. Many ways for students to respond and show their work - Picture, video, draw, video of drawing, text, links, files, audio Seesaw can act as a LMS. Think Google Classroom + digital portfolio + parent communication! The Easy Ed Tech Podcast episode discusses Seesaw + Book Creator: https://classtechtips.com/2020/10/06/icons-in-early-childhood-082/ “I already have Google Classroom. Do I need Seesaw?” - It doesn’t have to be an either/or. Depends on goals and learning environment. Could be used for only a couple of students for those that need more ways to respond.  Lots of complementary aspects of using it. BookCreator - audio, video, picture responses for students. From Jake’s Blog - 16 types of Media you can add in Book Creator! Great for a culminating project and for students publishing work, but also could also be for everyday learning note-taking or journal. Padlet Easy Ed Tech podcast - “My #1 EdTech Tip for Teachers” Google Slides is another great example of an easy tool that can be leveled up and has many uses.

Welcome to another episode of #TipTopTipsEdu! In this episode, I was pleased to welcome US former educator and all round edtech superstar Monica Burns, aka ClassTechTips, to the show.I’ve always really enjoyed my conversations with Monica about teaching and learning with technology when we’ve worked together. I was so looking forward to it, I shared about her involvement in the show prior to the recording and asked on Twitter if anyone had any questions that they’d like Monica to respond to with some #TipTopTipsEdu!Thanks to Nick Dempster, Linda Parsons, Kat Cauchi, Jon Neale and Sabeshan Gnanam for their responses, which formed some of the questions I asked Monica during the show. Here are the questions we covered: 1.      Can you share any #TipTopTipsEdu on how to use edtech to support EAL and SEND learners? (Kat Cauchi)2.      Do you have any #TipTopTipsEdu on slick starter activities that teachers can give to students that take the cognitive load off the teachers[LB1] [MA2]  at the start of lesson and promote collaboration/online oracy? (Linda Parsons) 3.      What are your #TipTopTipsEdu for getting staff buy-in to upskill and innovate or change the way things have traditionally been done in the classroom? (Sabeshan Gnanam)4.      Can you share any #TipTopTipsEdu on how to create digital portfolios for our youngest learners, such as those aged 4-8 years old? (Nick Dempster)5.      Do you have any #TipTopTipsEdu thoughts on where you might see apps like Clubhouse or TikTok as vehicles for delivering (and enhancing) learning experiences in the future? (Jon Neale)6.      Research shows that embedding oracy as a key part of the curriculum can really help with learners’ progress. Do you have any #TipTopTipsEdu on tools that can help to promote oracy in the classroom? (Mark Anderson)As you might expect, these questions brought about some fantastic conversations, but you’ll have to watch or listen to the episode to hear the insights shared!To learn more about Monica, her work, books and her various social accounts, please visit https://bit.ly/MonicaBIO where you’ll find everything you need.  Finally, thank you to Monica for taking some time out of her busy schedule to catch up and share her #TipTopTipsEdu on the show!
