I am working on putting a PD session together for new teachers about using tech in the classroom. What tools/skills do new teachers need to know when they get started (other than learning their school's grading/attendance platform)?

When talking about google classroom/schoology/canvas, talk about really thinking through the organization part. It's super frustrating to change up the organizational style partway through the year. For some, posting things in weekly folders works, for others it is better to organize things by units or chapters. Just posting every single assignment with no organizational strategy is also frustrating from the student perspective. Also, I like to use flippity for turning google sheet info into games for students. There are matching/memory games, jeopardy style games, sorting games, and so much more. Super useful tool for engaging activities.

Flipgrid is great. Kids can also use it to organize all the videos they have made into a portfolio. They can also easily share a link or QR code so other people outside the organization can view their video. Can be used as a standalone or integrated into canvas or other LMS.

I would include how to use a platform like zoom effectively. Just a gut feeling that some schools will continue to use it and eliminate snow days.

Google Classroom & Class Dojo

I have liked using Nearpod, Quizizz, and Polleverywhere lately. Great for bell ringers. My biggest suggestion is making time to try the sites out before hand. I found a great Nearpod and previewed it, but I had no idea how to use the data page at the end to see some of the great info it gave for feedback.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

I have a small classroom with 5 tables. I have two of the tables pushed together (side by side) and two tables pushed together to make an L shape. My student's always manage to push them apart or crooked. I am constantly pushing them back together or straightening them throughout the day. The tables being out of place would not be that big of a deal if my classroom was not small. I have tried non slip furniture pads, but they did not work. Any suggestions/hacks? Thank you!
