Steps In Technology
Stepping into this new world of technology has been an adventure for all involved. The teacher’s at ISS have been so grateful for Mr. Ashish’s guidance in this area. He has introduced a number of new and exciting tools to the staff to use in accordance with Google Classroom. Teacher’s are using applications such as Jamboard, which is an interactive whiteboard that both teachers and students can use during live sessions, Kami, which is a great tool to allow students to edit any piece of work on the device that they are using, GoNoddle, which provides fun educational videos for learners to dance along to, Certifyém, which is a great tool for creating and awarding certificates to students for completing various tasks and a new one is Flipgrid. This is a tool that allows teachers to record and edit videos, create assessments and assign all sorts of different materials to support the learning that is taking place. You can expect to see this application in use next week and we encourage everyone to interact with it to access an abundance of resources to support your learning.
Teachers are consistently using the G Suite; Google Classroom, Google Drive, Google Forms, Google Meet and many more to keep in touch with students and parents and to keep the work flow steady and valuable.
