This is one of my favourite apps and is a gem to use in the classroom. This allows your class to fly directly to the places they are learning about - the forests in Amazonia .. and the destruction of deforestation. The scenes of favourite books. The castles and battlefields of history. The sites of famous paintings. This little video shows how to use this to enhance lessons.
This is perhaps one of the most asked questions at the beginning of the year regarding iDoceo and is easy to forget. Once you have your timetable assembled and are sure that it won't change much, you will want to copy it to replicate it through the academic year. This video talks you through the steps to do this.
This short video shows you how to construct your timetable for Schedule and planner. You do this at the start of the year / At set up. Once complete you shouldn't have to revisit this - unless the timetable changes!
This short video shows you how to add your classes manually using iDoceo.
It shows you how to add the class ; the details ; the colour and how to place the class in the schedule. It also explains how to delete the classes if not needed or misplaced.
This short video aims to show you how you can transfer / copy one of your existing classes from a previous year. This prevents you having to needlessly create a new class from scratch. You have the options of copying the names or you can copy some of the columns and data too.
It also shows you how to hide or delete previous classes.
As you can see this is fabulous when combined with other apps like Comic Life.
There is a free version to this app and a PRO version. I did go on to buy the Pro version and I have used it regularly ever since.
Google Classroom has evolved consistently over the past few years. I have updated the Google Classroom section to take account of this. There are a number of departments working with Google Classroom this year
I have tried to illustrate in this updated section how easy it is to set up and monitor Google Classroom and how it could be essential as a teaching and learning tool.
Many thanks to Dave Ewart for volunteering to take the OneNote workshops. These are on in F34 every Tuesday afternoon in September 2018.There is also a very good website on OneNote - taking you through the set up step by step and giving plenty of teaching tips. Click below to link up and check it out. Thank you to Jayne Atkinson for this link.
One issue which tends to come up a lot at this time of year is google log in details. As pupils go to log on for the first time or the first time in a couple of months they run into log in issues. Invariably this has to do with them not using the @lagancollege.co.uk username. If they use this there shouldn't be an issue.
Derek Mooney and his team of Showbie aces have clearly demonstrated how to use Showbie well with the pupils. They have provided a range of great tips here but have also provided some brilliant examples :-)
One really good way to place an announcement for staff; form classes ; Year groups or the whole school is through the MySpace website which should be your opening web browser.
