At first, they just practiced their Google log in, then slowly they explored adding folders, Docs, Slides, and Draw. Mrs. Gierisch also taught them the importance of their email. Through a shared Google Doc they can access a link straight to their NISD email. They have practiced checking it daily. Students have always come into the room each day and completed morning work, only now their work might be sent through email or even posted in a shared folder from their teacher.
Example of Morning Work
Students First Shot at Google Slides
Over the last month, these students have learned so much! For example in Science, they learned about Kiddle.co and researched different stages of a butterfly lifecycle. Then worked in groups to collaborate and create this google slide to present their learning. Last week they were even confident enough in their latest learning of Google Slides to present at our district's Night of No Limits. Google Drive has changed the way these students learn!
