Here are some apps/websites our Primary students at Northbridge use to document and showcase their learning:
Teachers set up class google classrooms to post class announcements, ask questions, and post assignments. Students create and turn in work directly in the google classroom environment. Teachers post videos, links or presentations for students to view along with assessments and quizzes to measure learning.
Gr.4 teachers created a Google presentation template for their unit on migration. The students completed independent presentations where they also learned to take screenshots of maps and input photos. The students also learned about intellectual property rights when choosing photos to include in their presentation.
Most Primary students use this to reflect on their work or explain their learning. From Early Learning to Grade 5 classrooms, students has been posting their reflection on their work/learning in their SeeSaw journal. In Grade 4 classes, for example, they use SeeSaw for homework where they take a video of them showing a consolidation of what they have done in Maths.
Book Creator and Explain Everything
“The students researched information about an art movement they were interested in and then made a digital book using Book Creator or an Explain Everything presentation app to show their learning and share with other students about the movement. This worked like a jigsaw so that each group learned about a different area of their choice and then shared their learning with other classmates. They also shared this learning when parents came in for the art exhibition at the end of the unit.” – Ms. Jyll Cox, Gr3 Teacher
Dance Mat Typing
Dance Mat Typing from the BBC is used to improve proper typing skills in Grades 2 to 5.
Students used Piccollage to create a collage of photos showing students exhibiting the Learner Profiles.
