00:21 - Suzanne Sallee
Good morning Paggy!!

00:37 - Peggy George

00:47 - Sheri Edwards
As a GAFE school, I think we're going to use Blogger this year

00:49 - Stella Berdaxagar
Quite well, Paula! How are you!

00:52 - Peggy George
Huge thanks to Toni for introducing Valerie!!! :-)

01:03 - @plnaugle(Paula)

01:37 - Peggy George

Valerie's blog:

02:05 - @plnaugle(Paula)
@Stella, busy with the school year starting. Just finished our second week.

02:14 - Peggy George
We are so lucky to have Valerie here to share with us today!!!

02:17 - @plnaugle(Paula)
WooHoo for Valerie.

02:46 - Peggy George
assessment covers so many things!!!

03:02 - Peggy George

03:11 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Formative is for as you go along, sumative is for the end of a unit.

03:35 - Peggy George
I like to think of formative as assessment FOR learning--guides our teaching

03:55 - aunttammie
Her sound is going in and out for me...just me?

04:05 - Toni Plourde
going in and out for me too

04:06 - Peggy George
great explanation Valerie

04:06 - Patti Ruffing
same for me

04:12 - Lorie Moffat
No, not just you.

04:16 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Formative helps us address FAIL - first attempt in learning.

04:18 - Patti Ruffing
great graphic

04:40 - Peggy George
I think the audio will settle down once everyone has logged in :-) always a bandwidth lag at the beginning as all of the slides upload for each person

04:43 - Toni Plourde
sweet graphic

04:44 - Stidmama
On my ipad, but I am here!

04:50 - Patti Ruffing
@paula, good acronym

04:55 - Peggy George
Welcome Stidmama!!! :-)

05:18 - Peggy George
great drawing!

05:33 - Peggy George
very clever!

05:40 - Peggy George
it's fine now

05:41 - Patti Ruffing
ok for me

05:42 - Sheri Edwards

05:45 - Toni Plourde
a little better

06:16 - Peggy George
love the emphasis on creating and curating!!

06:21 - Toni Plourde
I really like that philosophy!

06:33 - Peggy George
she has examples of all of these in her presentation :-)

06:53 - Peggy George
do you all know what close reading is?

07:04 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love paper slide videos. Easy for a small group of students to create and share their learning.

07:35 - @plnaugle(Paula)

07:56 - Peggy George
I love memes! We had an excellent presentation last year about memes with lots of students examples that we all shared in a Livebinder :-)

08:27 - Stidmama
Very difficult to parody something you do not understand. Great idea to check learning.

08:58 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Meme Generator Free - Android Apps on Google Play

08:59 - Melissa Getz 2
Using memes to summarize text is a creative way to demonstrate an ability to synthesize information.

09:02 - Peggy George

09:16 - Peggy George
hahaha! those are fun examples!!!

09:59 - Toni Plourde
that is a great idea!

10:02 - Peggy George
they really have to think to come up with a meme so it definitely shows whether they understand!

10:05 - @plnaugle(Paula)
How to make your own memes | Digital Trends

10:23 - Peggy George
thanks for those links Paula!! I'll add them to our Livebinder after our show!

10:36 - Stidmama
Wonder if I could get this to work with my third graders this year...

10:59 - Peggy George
GIST is new to me

11:14 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Meme Maker - Generate funny memes | ImageChef

11:49 - Peggy George
kids love to make up their own fun hashtags :-)

11:50 - @plnaugle(Paula)
My 4th graders can define gist for you @Peggy. :)

12:21 - Peggy George
thanks Paula!! I've definitely heard people say "what's the gist of your presentation?" :-)

12:42 - Sheri Edwards

12:56 - Peggy George
love the idea of using hashtags to summarize a chapter :-)

13:00 - Peggy George
thanks Sheri!!!

13:25 - Peggy George
any links that are shared in the chat will be added to our Livebinder after the show :-) Thanks for sharing!

13:37 - Peggy George

14:12 - Peggy George
Wordles are great for synthesizing information!

14:45 - Stidmama
Love wordles.

14:51 - Toni Plourde
I like that they are creating different levels of word values.

14:54 - Peggy George
great idea! don't just copy/paste but choose the words you want to highlight and make larger!

15:06 - Peggy George
yes! Bless Me Ultima

15:09 - Sheri Edwards
I ask them to also deside on best layout and color scheme to fit. So word choice, color, layout that fits best.

15:17 - Toni Plourde
and explaining it in their blogs or porfolio.

15:31 - Peggy George
there are so many color schemes available I spend hours just trying different ones out :-)

15:43 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I'm doing this activity with my 4th graders next week - Close Reading with Oreos

15:55 - Peggy George
how exciting Paula!!!!

16:12 - Stidmama
Beautiful examples. Will definitely need to rebisit thisin the atchives.

16:28 - Peggy George
I love how Valerie calls her students "scholars" :-)

16:30 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love the art work.

16:59 - Peggy George
If you have any questions for Valerie feel free to type them here in the chat and Lorie will ask her during Q/A

17:24 - Peggy George
WordArt Assignment

17:28 - Stella Berdaxagar
Visuals are so powerful to make learning memorable and word clouds or mind maps or drawings or doodles represent more than understanding. They are new content full of meanings.

17:31 - aunttammie
What blogging platform do you recommend for students?

17:40 - Peggy George
so true Stella!!!

18:08 - Peggy George
that looks like a sketchnote :-) fantastic!!

Love Thinglink!!! We had an amazing webinar with Susan Oxnevad on Thinglink. Be sure to watch that recording in case you missed it!

20:38 - Peggy George
Thinglink directions:

21:11 - Peggy George
fascinating way to use poems to show understanding!

21:22 - Toni Plourde
What a great activity for tactile and visual learners.

21:24 - Stidmama
Will have to tell my middle school friends about this.

21:28 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Had to rejoin because I lost my connection. :(

21:31 - Sheri Edwards
Thinglink possibilities:

21:46 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Blackout poetry is so cool.

22:11 - Stella Berdaxagar
Thinklink is awesome! It is the visual representation of levels of depths of thought, digression, flashback, creation,ideation and the like.

22:20 - Peggy George
love it! alternatives are so important to engage ALL learners!

23:09 - Peggy George
hahaha! what power!

23:44 - Peggy George
that makes the key points really stand out--much more than if you just highlight them :-)

23:50 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
My Thinglink on Mystery Location calls -

24:01 - Peggy George
thanks Paula!!!

24:02 - Toni Plourde
irony but it works: destroyer of the paper creatively used to illuminate their understanding! Brilliant!

24:13 - Peggy George

25:09 - Stella Berdaxagar
Great, Paula!

25:27 - Peggy George
this is the link to our Thinglink webinar. The Livebinder is there too with lots of great resources!

25:27 - Toni Plourde
The teacher used found poems in class this year. Blackout poems are such a useful alternative as well.

25:55 - Peggy George
does it take a lot of time for students to create the videos? do they do it at school or at home?

26:05 - Toni Plourde
Public service announcements! Budding videographers would love this.

26:25 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2

26:28 - Patti Ruffing
I am interested in knowing what Valerie's screencasting tool of choice might be

26:40 - Peggy George
those short videos are great!

26:56 - Toni Plourde
TED talk creation: great idea!

27:02 - Peggy George (Dr. Lodge McCammon: Paperslide Videos)

27:46 - Peggy George
I love PhotoPeach! Haven't used it in awhile. Teachers can even ask students questions to answer throughout the PhotoPeach slide show.

28:06 - Peggy George

28:23 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Storyboard Templates

29:22 - Peggy George
what a great idea! character journal created with slides done in collaboration!

29:39 - Toni Plourde
I tried out interactive videos where the video stops and asks the viewer a question. Have your students every used a tool like that in assessment?

29:50 - Peggy George

30:57 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
@Toni I like eduCanon for creating interactive videos.

31:30 - Peggy George
very interesting! 4x4 responses! They don't have tons to write but it really shows what they understand!

31:52 - Sheri Edwards
Love this one.

31:54 - Peggy George

31:55 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2

31:57 - Toni Plourde

32:00 - Peggy George
lost you for a minute

32:02 - Peggy George
all is well now

35:25 - Peggy George
Paula your examples and links are fantastic! Thank you!!!

35:42 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Thanks @Peggy.

35:46 - Melissa Getz 2
I love hearing how you battled the "I can't". It is great that you show them they can.

36:23 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Do your students do most of this work in class or at home?

37:03 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Do you set hard deadlines for the project completion dates?

37:04 - Patti Ruffing
what kind of technology is available for the class, are you byod?

37:07 - Ben
I thought Weebly only allows up to 5 pages?

37:16 - Sheri Edwards
What platform do you use for ePortfolio?

37:25 - Patti Ruffing
i have a weebly pro and i have more than 5 pages

37:30 - Peggy George
ePortfolios are such a great way for students to demonstrate their learning

37:43 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Change your students mindset from "I can't" to "I can't yet!"

37:45 - Peggy George
I like it when students can select what they want to include :-)

37:47 - Ben
we only use the free version

37:55 - Peggy George
totally agree Paula!!!

38:02 - Ben
and it only allows students a number of pages

38:27 - Peggy George
Weebly is fantastic for digital portfolios! Valerie did a webinar for us on using Weebly for digital portfolios :-)

38:33 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
I need to start using Padlet with my students.

38:45 - Peggy George
Padlet with Hamlet playlist

38:51 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Does Padlet work on iPads?

38:54 - Peggy George
Here is a Padlet that my students created with Beowulf

39:02 - Sheri Edwards
Padlet is awesome -- and can embed right in a Thinglink !

39:02 - Stidmama
This is a neat tool. Might have to try it this year!

39:12 - Peggy George
Here is a Padlet re: Jane Eyre

39:12 - Patti Ruffing
i pay for my own weebly pro but my students don't have accounts

39:19 - Stella Berdaxagar
Eportfolios are also useful tools for teachers to assess their Ss' progress and to monitor their teaching beyond a school year.

39:20 - Melissa Getz 2
Her example only had 4 pages in addition to the home page

39:23 - Peggy George
I love Weebly too!!

39:40 - Peggy George

39:43 - Melissa Getz 2
She uses subpages, which works great in Weebly

39:57 - Peggy George
yes! love Smores!

40:10 - Evelyn
There are Weebly's for Education

40:16 - Peggy George
Smores are great for class/school newsletters and announcements of upcoming events :-)

40:23 - aunttammie
smores is a website?

40:24 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Smores, Canva, wonder which to use?

40:26 - Peggy George

40:40 - Peggy George

41:23 - Ben
Google Sites is also ok, works seamlessly with anything Google, from calendars to whatnot

41:38 - Peggy George
both are great sites Paula! and both have free versions with premium paid options

41:47 - EdTechJoe
Hey Folks.. just joining the conversation. Jose out here in Los Angeles.

41:54 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Think have students create Google site would be great for eportfolios for older students who have their own emails.

41:59 - Peggy George
great point Ben! I love the way Google apps integrate with each other so well!!!

42:06 - Sheri Edwards
Blendspace . Google Sites

42:16 - Peggy George (Padlet in the Classroom)

42:28 - Evelyn

43:32 - Peggy George
Wordpress is excellent but a higher learning curve than Weebly :-)

43:34 - Melissa Getz 2
Yes! Trust the students and let them show you their talent.

43:37 - EdTechJoe
With Kidblog going to premium only it is a hard choice in Elementary.

43:46 - Peggy George
excellent point @EdTechJoe!!!

43:59 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
So agree @EdTechjoe.

44:02 - Peggy George
so sorry that Kidblog has gone to premium only!! very sad!

44:15 - EdTechJoe
Hey Peggy.. It's Jose Rodriguez.. #k12online :)

44:23 - Patti Ruffing
@EdTechJoe I have the premium Kidblog but the changes they have made are causing me a lot of work! I preferred the old platform

44:39 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Hi Jose!

44:41 - Peggy George
wow! Hi EdTechJoe!!! Love your new handle!! So great to have you here with us!!!

44:44 - EdTechJoe
@Patti I agree the old version was very cool

44:52 - EdTechJoe
I might go back to Classblogmeister

45:18 - Peggy George
that's a great option!

45:24 - Patti Ruffing
Joe, I left classblogmeister because there was no ability to upload images, I always had to put them on Flickr first, very time consuming

45:30 - EdTechJoe
I love paper slides!

46:10 - Peggy George
In case you missed our Livebinder link for today:

46:10 - Sharon Gullett 1
Paper slides are so good for kids who don't have Internet access at home.

46:21 - Peggy George
I'll add any links shared in the chat to the Livebinder after the show.

46:34 - Peggy George
love that point Sharon!

46:36 - EdTechJoe
paper slides with an ipad camera are on option too.

47:20 - Patti Ruffing
I still have a few Flip cameras and little tripods, they were hot, and then not

47:25 - EdTechJoe
good idea.. 2 takes in a quiet are

47:27 - EdTechJoe

47:30 - Peggy George
so true!!! good to have a timelimit on their creating! :-)

47:52 - Peggy George
Patti, I still love flip cameras :-) so easy to use!

47:59 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
I still use my 6 Flip cams to have students create paper slide videos.

48:06 - Patti Ruffing
screencasting app of choice?

48:09 - Peggy George
but many people are using smart phones and iPads for video now

48:41 - Sheri Edwards
Look what I found Paula on blogging:

48:54 - Peggy George
there's a slight lag for Valerie so she doesn't hear Lorie immediately :-)

49:19 - Stidmama
Thank you for this session. Again, so many great ideas that I can use! Have a great weekend, all!

49:23 - Peggy George
Valerie has provided us with so many great ideas and tips! Love hearing how teachers actually use these tools in the classroom!

49:25 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Love it, Sheri. :) Thanks for sharing.

49:42 - Sharon Gullett 1
Of the strategies you presented today, which one do you use most often?

50:50 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Has Valerie had her students present their work to other classrooms via Skype or Google Hangouts?

50:58 - Peggy George
I'm loving SnagIt now for screencasting :-)

51:21 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Jing is free and easy but has 5 minute limit for video.

51:47 - Melissa Getz 2
I think Jing is now 15 min limit.

51:48 - Patti Ruffing
they got rid of jing pro a few years back and you had to switch to snag it

51:53 - Sheri Edwards
I love Snagit also. On makes, QuickTime will screencast -- and also screencast iOS devices

51:57 - Sheri Edwards

52:00 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
But videos under 5 minutes can be so powerful.

52:02 - Sheri Edwards
They have an app now

52:03 - Evelyn
Yes it does

52:06 - Suzanne Sallee
Yes, and they now have a Padlet app

52:30 - Evelyn
You're welcome

52:42 - Dotty

I just listened to this awesome webinar recording yesterday and it is great advice for teachers as well as TED Talk presenters. Great points to share with students too! Don't Tank Your TED Talk Webinar with Short Talk Expert, Hayley Foster

53:29 - Sheri Edwards
It's new -- so give them feedback and forgive if not perfect

53:57 - Peggy George
so true Sheri! we all struggle with perfectionism I think :-)

54:12 - Peggy George
this was fantastic Valerie!!! Thank you!

54:21 - @plnaugle(Paula) #2
Even though our district doesn't support Chromebooks, Valerie, I have 8 of them in my classroom.

54:25 - Stella Berdaxagar
Thank you all!

54:25 - Eileen
