00:00 - Suzana 1
I am glad to be here!

00:03 - Patti Ruffing
like that show on HGTV, Flip or Flop

00:29 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Excited to be here and learn from Tammie Pogue today.

00:38 - Patti Ruffing
Yay, Tammie!

03:39 - Patti Ruffing
ah yes, memories

03:40 - Peggy George
I remember mimeograph machines and ditto machines :-)

04:02 - Peggy George
technology has changed so much about the way we teach and learn!

04:27 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Remembering sniffing the mimeo sheets that had just been run?

04:33 - Peggy George
I had to type my entire doctoral dissertation on an electric typewriter! Sure wish I had a computer then!! :-)

04:38 - Peggy George
yes Paula!!!

04:40 - Lorie Moffat
Yes, Paula.

04:54 - Peggy George
Welcome Eileen and tam! So glad you could join us!!

05:09 - tam
so glad to be here <3

05:13 - Peggy George
@aunttammmie :-)

05:18 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Used an overhead projector and always had a blue left hand.

05:22 - Patti Ruffing
I have a cousin in Katy, TX

05:30 - Peggy George
cute avatar!!!

05:40 - Eileen
Hello everyone :) So happy to be joining in today!

05:49 - Patti Ruffing
Hi Eileen

05:54 - Peggy George
isn't it amazing that some of these early tools still survive and are being used today??!!

06:05 - Eileen
Hi Patty!

06:29 - Peggy George (Easy TestMaker)

07:10 - Peggy George
lots of great features! looks really easy to use :-)

07:23 - Peggy George
there it is!!! :-)

08:07 - Peggy George
that would be really helpful to have word banks to help them learn the vocabulary

08:38 - Patti Ruffing
this tool has kept up with the times

08:44 - Peggy George
that's such a bonus when you can provide immediate feedback (and save paper!)

08:45 - stidmama
wow. this is nifty!

09:09 - Dotty

09:19 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I'm stunned that I have never heard of Easy Test Maker before.

09:37 - Peggy George
I hadn't either Paula!! So glad to know about it!

10:12 - Peggy George
I love that she uses a Livebinder with her students!

10:29 - Patti Ruffing
You could put those links in your Google Classroom too

10:33 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Like that I can create 25 tests using the free version, so I can decide if I would like to upgrade.

10:51 - Peggy George
love the randomize question option :-)

11:05 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! Great to know!

11:09 - Peggy George (PlanBook EDU)

12:06 - Suzana 1
It is not free?

12:21 - stidmama
Apparently I tried Easy Test Maker a couple years ago, but canceled it -- it looks very different from before!

12:23 - Peggy George
Hi Suzanne Sallee! Sorry I didn't see you enter the room. Great to have you with us!

12:45 - Suzanne Sallee
Good morning Peggy!

13:30 - stidmama
This is a nice resource!

13:31 - Peggy George
@stidmama it's good that they are improving and upgrading Easty Test Maker and that's probably why it survives as a valuable tool :-)

13:47 - Peggy George (CP Cubs 14/15)

14:01 - Peggy George
Lots of subtabs on that Livebinder :-)

14:13 - Peggy George
check out the writing resources :-)

14:33 - Peggy George
(AP Cubs 14/15)

14:45 - Patti Ruffing
great to have everything they need in one spot

14:52 - Peggy George
that's such a great way to organize all of the resources for a class!

15:01 - Peggy George
and they can access it anywhere, any time!

15:17 - Peggy George
hahaha!!! organizationally challenged

15:46 - Peggy George
Poguebucks Opportunities sounds really interesting! Will have to explore that tab later :-)

17:00 - Peggy George
I have the link to her CP Cubs 14-15 Livebinder in our Livebinder today but I don't have the link to her AP Cubs Livebinder. We'll have Tammie add that later :-)

17:36 - Peggy George
providing the daily slides for the students must really help them to remember the content and use it for review

17:43 - Suzanne Sallee
Sharing is a step many seem to overlook in Google Docs

18:19 - Susie @shighley #3
Woo hoo! I'm a Purdue grad

18:39 - Peggy George
that site is awesome!!! for us too!!!

19:19 - Peggy George
be sure to type your questions in the chat if you'd like to know more about anything and Lorie will ask Tammie during Q/A

20:28 - Peggy George
what a great way to keep track of their assignments/work!

20:57 - Peggy George
do any of you use Dropbox with your students?

21:18 - Patti Ruffing
I have GAFE so I only use Dropbox for personal storage

21:20 - Peggy George
love this list!!!! lots of great tools there!

21:28 - Peggy George
good point Patti!

21:39 - Peggy George (Dropbox)

21:48 - Peggy George (Screencastify screencasting for Chrome, Chromebooks and Chromeboxes)

21:58 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I don't Peggy becuase my 4th graders don't have email. My 4th grade team has a shared Dropbox folder though.

22:14 - Peggy George
it's so helpful for them to be able to watch/listen to it as many times as they need to!

22:33 - Peggy George
good point Paula--age does make a difference

22:46 - Peggy George (Explain Everything)

23:02 - Patti Ruffing
Explain Everything is worth paying for

23:03 - Peggy George
that is such a fantastic tool if you have an iPad!! so easy to use!

23:10 - Peggy George
I agree Patti!

23:29 - Eileen
My students enjoy using Explain Everything,too. Easy to use :)

23:36 - Peggy George
once you've created these videos you can re-use them over and over :-)

23:59 - Patti Ruffing
We have had student video projects made on Explain Everything and then uploaded to YouTube

24:11 - Peggy George
Awesome Eileen! That is so valuable for students and I think they learn/remember things so much better when they are creating the videos.

24:25 - Suzanne Sallee
The Explain EVerything 3.0 update was released this week and has soe really nice changes including an equation editors

24:28 - Peggy George (No Red Ink)

24:56 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I have used No Red Ink.

25:27 - Peggy George
I think it's a good idea to always try the free versions of anything for awhile until you know if they work for you. If you love them then upgrade to premium. :-)

25:43 - Peggy George
the diagnostics look really helpful!

26:02 - Patti Ruffing
and if you can show an admin how well it is working for the kids they may be convinced to fund the premium

26:28 - Peggy George
good point Patti!!! :-)

27:05 - Peggy George
haha! I haven't heard of that baseball player :-) Have you?

27:35 - Peggy George
how clever is that!!! personalized grammar activities

27:42 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Kids like when the sentences are personalized on No Red Ink.

28:06 - Peggy George
that will make them want to keep going back to practice more :-)

28:40 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Gamified grammar practice!

28:55 - Peggy George
I love that you can embed videos right in the Livebinder so you don't have to leave the Livebinder to view them

29:26 - Peggy George
they have made it possible to embed them now and it's easier to do than it was when they first started.

29:34 - Peggy George (Bitstrips)

29:47 - Peggy George
how cute! Patty Participle!

29:52 - Peggy George
very clever!

30:57 - Peggy George
How easy is it for students to create these comic strips? Does it take a lot of time?

31:08 - Patti Ruffing
so funny

31:31 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Quite a soap oprea. I'm sure the students love it and remember the parts of speech. :)

31:50 - Patti Ruffing
The always remember stories.

31:55 - Patti Ruffing

32:00 - Peggy George
haha Paula!! love that description!

32:24 - Peggy George (Tammie’ Class Blog)

32:24 - @plnaugle(Paula)

33:10 - Peggy George
exemplars are really helpful for students (and for those of us who see their examplars)

33:17 - Patti Ruffing
yes, Weebly is very easy to use

33:32 - Peggy George
This is an awesome blog!

33:54 - Peggy George (Mrs. Patty’ wordpress blog)

34:48 - Peggy George
I'm so impressed that she can keep up with that frequency of posting on her blog!!!

35:14 - Peggy George
always great to see alternatives!

35:32 - Peggy George (Project Gutenberg free eBooks)

35:47 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Project Gutenberg is awesome.

35:50 - Peggy George

36:16 - Patti Ruffing

36:17 - Lorie Moffat

36:24 - Peggy George
thanks Lorie!

36:28 - Peggy George
and Patti :-)

36:32 - Lorie Moffat

36:39 - stidmama
I have used librivox -- when my eyes don't work well it is a lifesaver.

36:43 - Patti Ruffing

37:40 - Lorie Moffat
There is also Open Library for ebooks:

37:47 - Peggy George
I love audio versions of books! You can listen to them anywhere when you might not be able to be reading the book.

38:00 - Peggy George
thanks Lorie! I'll add that to our Livebinder.

38:05 - tam
i've listened to some of librivox recording, and some othe audiobooks that could be found on youtube, they are really, really great!

38:11 - Peggy George (Educanon: Make your videos interactive with assessment questions)

38:40 - Peggy George
We featured Educanon on our show awhile back. Be sure to watch the recording if you'd like to know more about it.

38:50 - Peggy George (EdPuzzle: Use existing videos or upload your own to make learning interactive. Enable self-paced learning with interactive lessons, add your voice and questions along the video.)

39:12 - Patti Ruffing We had a show on EduCanon

39:19 - Peggy George
that's a great feature on Educanon! they can't advance until they answer the question

39:29 - Peggy George
thanks Patti!!

39:59 - Peggy George
documentation!!! :-) can't say the dog ate my homework

40:56 - Doug Henry in San Leandro CA
They need an option to turn off the hash marks, to force the student to watch the whole thing...

41:41 - Peggy George
how would removing the hash marks force them to watch the whole thing???

41:57 - Doug Henry in San Leandro CA
The student can just skip from one to the next now...

42:25 - Peggy George (Applied Practice Online: Interactive online teaching tools. Integrate standardized test preparation and 6-12th grade core subject curriculum)

43:41 - Peggy George
so many great tips for reducing the use of paper!

44:24 - Peggy George
that's a great suggestion to have them work in pairs or teams!

45:43 - Peggy George
do you all know what close reading is? Our presenter next week, Valerie Burton, is going to share some great tips for assessment based on close reading :-)

45:50 - Peggy George (Kahoot: provides educators and students with a a trusted learning space where educational content is delivered by asking meaningful questions in real-time, creating a social, fun and game-like environment.)

46:10 - Peggy George
kids LOVE Kahoot!!!!

46:27 - @plnaugle(Paula)
If you teach younger students, check out Epic, an amazing library of online books. It is free for educators if you create an account with your school email and is available for iPads and andriod devices.

46:48 - Peggy George
that's a big help that you can use quizzes created by other people!

46:52 - Peggy George
thanks Paula!!!

47:04 - Peggy George ( Create free educational games, quizzes, activities and diagrams in seconds! Host them on your own blog, website or intranet! No signup, no passwords, no charge! Lots of free tools and game templates provided.)

47:22 - Susie @shighley #3
But you do sometimes have to check the kahoots to make sure they are correct

47:30 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Students absolutely love Kahoot. I had my students create Kahoots using my account to review our social studies units.

47:37 - stidmama
I have to head out early -- this has been really interesting! Thank you Tammie for the great ideas and websites. I am renewing my Easy Test Maker membership... :-) So many new sites to try!

47:50 - Susie @shighley #3
Sort of like quia in creating different types of games

47:53 - Peggy George
thanks for coming stidmama!! have a great weekend!

48:01 - Patti Ruffing
@Susie, that is true about checking the Kahoot before using it

48:39 - Peggy George
that looks like a game I could be successful with :-)

49:28 - Susie @shighley #3
I didn't realize there was so miuch on

49:48 - Peggy George
I think they keep adding things!

50:07 - Peggy George
haha!! that would be me! slow!!!

50:21 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I love the Breaking News tool on Classtools.

50:26 - Peggy George (Socrative: Through the use of real-time questioning, result aggregation, and visualization, you have instant insight into levels of understanding so you can use class time to better collaborate and grow as a community of learners)

50:49 - Peggy George
I finally learned how to pronounce Socrative :-) It's pronounced so many different ways.

51:05 - Peggy George
Tammie and I learned that last night :-)

51:17 - Peggy George (TurnItIn: online technology for evaluating student learning. Turnitin is a comprehensive cloud-based solution that helps students learn by facilitating personalized feedback)

51:19 - Susie @shighley #3
like the Socratic method

52:03 - Peggy George
wow! that's great that peers can review each others work with Turnitin!

52:25 - Eileen
Great information today! I have to sign off early to babysit today! Thanks so much!

52:42 - Peggy George
yes Susie but you don't pronounce it like socratic--that's what confused me :-)

52:53 - Patti Ruffing
is that peer editing only available in a paid subscription for Turnitin. Am I right that there is a free version with limited use? Not sure.

53:04 - Peggy George (Formative: online formative assessment tool, free for teachers and students. Go paperless. Frequent formal and informal checks for understanding guarantee student growth)

53:48 - Peggy George
if you have any questions for Tammie please post them and Lorie will get on the mic to ask them :-)

53:55 - Susie @shighley #3
Oh, I had heard it was accent on second syllable!

54:01 - Peggy George (Remind)

54:21 - Peggy George
We're going to feature Remind in our show on August 29. :-)

54:38 - Patti Ruffing
@Susie, I think it was confusing because Socrates accented the Soc but Socratic stressed the 'crat'

54:58 - Peggy George
great explanation Patti!

55:04 - Susie @shighley #3
They put accent on second syllable in their demo

55:15 - Tiziana Angiolini ( Italy)

57:28 - Patti Ruffing

58:07 - Susie @shighley #3
For not having GAFE, you are still finding ways to do many of the same things using other tools!

58:14 - Peggy George (New features for Remind!)

58:22 - Patti Ruffing
so creative, Tammie, thanks so much

58:25 - @plnaugle(Paula)
