    In my paperless classroom I utilize Google Apps for Education every day. Google Classroom is our “home” where they receive and submit their work. Google Forms is great for assessments, especially now because they have a lock down browser enabled to prevent cheating. I am also a big fan of Google Drawings which allows students to get creative with…[Read more]

    I run a paperless classroom in all of my courses including Advanced Placement World History. I have found Fiveable and Get A Five have both been great for students to be able to learn concepts. They incorporate videos and assessments for students, which are instrumental in student success because our content ranges from the dawn of mankind to…[Read more]

    Here are my two news stories highlighting Hapara and Nearpod. These are great resources for the paperless classroom!

    I am a paperless classroom so I utilize numerous resources that allow me to monitor and enhance engagement. All of the Google Apps for Education are fantastic. I like to use Google Drawings in my Integrated Social Studies course in order for students to present visuals of topics that we are discussing. Another resource that I use is Nearpod.…[Read more]

    • I saw Nearpod on a school PETLL visit. It is what reminded me of the PearDeck presentation from this summer. My next task is to compare the prices of the two.

      • Near Pod is one of my favorite Tools!
        Do you enjoy being a Paperless classroom? Pros and Cons?

        • I’m not paperless. Our assessments are online and we do a lot of online and google activities on our Chromebooks, but not totally paperless. We have a few teachers in the district who are. They love it.

    Yes! Students can collaborate and share many assignments, I can use technology to administer exit tickets, and 1 to 1 gives way to creative presentation opportunities. Socratic.com is great for quick class feedback for bell ringers and exit tickets.

    Seems many schools are having similar issues and concerns. Hopefully the transition next year will create course opportunities for your students!

    I have used that before and it made grading very simple and fast!

    I am a paperless classroom teaching Integrated Social Studies and Advanced Placement World History. I have been involved with creating innovative and engaging lessons. The best thing that I use to assess my students includes numerous Google Apps for Education. I use Google Classroom as my home for the students to get their work. Slides,…[Read more]

    • Wow!
      Has 1 to 1 capability helped in your ability to use formative assessment?

      • Yes! Students can collaborate and share many assignments, I can use technology to administer exit tickets, and 1 to 1 gives way to creative presentation opportunities. Socratic.com is great for quick class feedback for bell ringers and exit tickets.

      • This is great! I have recently been having my students do their notes in google slides and they love it! And they will always have them in their Google Drive! No more “lost” notes.

    • I love this idea!

    • Were you trained on Google classroom or did you just start playing around on it to figure out all of the different capabilities it offers? I would love to attend a training on how to use google classroom in a math classroom. I’m especially interested in how students would show their work.

    This is the first time I have reviewed the course codes in depth. There are numerous options. I believe the biggest concern is that we would love to incorporate many new courses, but do not have the staff nor the student population to accompany this. What I do know is that our school moving to a 1 to 1 initiative has allowed us to explore more…[Read more]

    • Understood. Was shared yesterday in assessment webcast that Pearson platform for high school EOCs is the beginning of the next steps towards online KPREP state testing. 1 to 1 will serve you well as we move in this direction.

    • You are 100% correct about the staffing issue especially when all we do is cut funding in this state.
