Google Level 1 Certification

Interested in getting Google Certified?

I recently obtained my google Level 1 certification. I was surprised about how much I didn't know the google apps I've been using in the classroom and throughout the school. All the training courses can be found online (link here). These courses cover topics such as digital citizenship, google apps, and technology integration. I highly recommend completing the courses prior to taking the test. 

Want to learn more?

I will be hosting an information session on Wednesday, May 10th at 8:00am in the STEAM Lab. We will review the requirements of the google certifications in case you'd like to work on it this summer. A sign up form will be forthcoming.

Get the most out of MyON!

At first glance it seems as if MyOn is just another e-book library, however, I've realized that our MyON resource can do much more! MyON contains over 10,000 digital texts, 70% of which are non-fiction. If you are using MyOn to have students listen to books you've only just touched the surface. With MyON students are able to track their usage, annotate in books (with proper citation) browse and read books based upon their interest and/or level, and research topics related to content areas. Teachers are able to group students, create projects, assign graphic organizers, and analyze student data. These are just a few of the features of MyON for both students and teachers. 

For example, did you know could look at student annotations within each MyON e-book? Click this link to learn more. 

This feature and many others were discuss at a PD in February 2017. Professional learning was personalized into three paths. Teachers chose their path based upon their knowledge and/or learning interest. Please feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to learn more about any of the features of MyOn.
