Two more free online quiz tools to share:
Testmoz - lets you create automatically graded online tests. You don't have to create an account but it will allow you to pull reports.
That Quiz - students can practice a wide variety of math skills but if you create an account you can create custom quizzes, import your class, and pull reports.
Both of these tools are free and they work on iPads and iPods.
Enjoy! ~Suzanne

Student Blogging in the Primary Classrooms
How do you help move teachers into this venue for primary grades?
  • Fear of the unknown for parents, teachers and admin
  • Utilizing guidelines in student blogging (Heather- Tempe)
  • School Fusion, Gaggle.net in Alhambra, both offer student blogging
    • very secure and safe
    • highest area of use is in the blogging section of Gaggle
    • Generally teacher creates the blog to use in the classroom (discussion topics)
    • Teacher monitored
    • Student can be moved to "trusted" user, no longer monitored by teacher
    • Generic user names given to student
  • Vanessa (Cartwright)
    • Also has School Fusion, not using for blogging
    • ELL classrooms using iPads, iTouches
    • Hoping to go to Google, a couple of classes using Blogger
    • 1st graders blogging
    • Have 21st Century Classrooms with "bunches" of tech
  • Terri (Scottsdale)
    • Storyjumper
    • Comiclife
    • Kidspiration
  • Ideas for encouraging teachers to blog
    • Take a class, use the tech, see that they are using, they earn additional hours (3 hour class, use tech, get additional 3 hours) Heather/Tempe
    • Alhambra is doing the same thing
    • Cartwright - 21st Century rooms required to participate and work with tech integration specialist, helping to encourage others in the District
  • Kim suggested talking about getting Tech Integ Specialist together to talk about issues we face
