Summer Check In

Summer check-in time! How are you doing? There is so much happening right now, I am sure your head is spinning! Some teachers already know they will be teaching online while others are going face-to-face. Many schools are going to a hybrid model and others haven’t yet decided. However, it’s still summer and everyone needs a little down time. I hope you are finding ways to relax and replenish.

Even though I am on break, I still like to play around and learn from other educators. So, I thought I would quickly share some sites that I have been discussing with others this summer.

Safe YouTube

If you are working on a virtual classroom or have students watching videos for class, Safe YouTube is really helpful. This site takes away the stream from one video to the next so that students can watch your screencast without you having to worry that some random video will follow. It is really helpful to help control the content your students are seeing.

Cube for Teachers

A helpful teacher collaborative site that was brought to my attention is called Cube for Teachers. This is a great resource where teachers can organize, collect articles and sites. Then other teachers can see what you have collected and posted. It is a great way to collaborate with teachers around the world.

iDialogue

Lastly, iDialogue is a great resource for ESL teachers. It gives your students authentic ways to communicate with other students using real content. Students can learn from each other and practice their language skills.

TECH MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:

I have a ton of ideas to share with everyone this fall but I too need a little time to relax. Thank you to those who continue to share new sites with me and thank you to those sharing my podcast with other teachers! I appreciate it!

Take care everyone!
