Another extra-special treat was to take my daughter, Ashlyn with me for a quick Mom/Daughter weekend in the Big Apple! While we were in Times Square Ashlyn got an email congratulating her on being accepted to her dream school the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University! Can you believe the timing? It was incredible! We saw Newsies and Pippin and loved them. We also got a very special, private backstage tour of Wicked. We even got to stand on the Wicked stage. Ashlyn was in heaven! Thank you, Laurie for making that happen!
Ok, now back to work.... While in Brooklyn, I had lots of interesting conversations with different teachers about technology tools they were currently using. We had great discussions about the use of Google Docs/Google Drive. Big thanks to the lovely teacher that shared about the Google Docs App you are using for recording voice for providing students feedback. I hope this is the same app you showed me, if not, please let me know.
If you are using Google Docs/Google Drive with your students you can add more tools and resources to your documents by installing Google Apps. It is a simple process and you can find all kinds of things you may need to enrich student learning with these apps.
Isn't that easy? Now you can have all kinds of helpful tools to make your documents and lessons more exciting! Here are a couple of Apps that you might like:
