Co-Teaching Opportunities

We are more than willing to come into your class and co-teach a tech-based lesson. We love the idea of students learning to use technology in the classroom and we understand that sometimes the thought of facilitating that experience can be nerve-wracking...

...so we want to help!

Listed below are some topics we can come into your class and co-teach. If you have something you'd like to cover that is not on the list below, just let us know and we'll be more than happy to figure it out!

Below are the courses that we are currently offering. To let us know you're interested, simply click "Come co-teach with me!" to the right of each of the topics. Check this space frequently for updates!

Fun Short-term Projects

Build Your Own App with Google Slides

Using Google Slides, students can build their own fully functional web apps that anyone can use on their phone, tablet, or computer.

We can help them set it up, publish it, and find free icons, buttons, and more. This would be a great alternative to a research project, or it could be a great way for students to get to know each other. There are tons of uses, and no coding necessary!

Create a Student Portfolio with Google Sites

There's never been a better time to build an online student portfolio than right now!

Using Google Sites, students can easily create a website to store their original work: essays, art, presentations, videos, and anything else they do in class. This is a great way to start collecting artifacts and evidence of growth. It's also a fun way for your kids to watch themselves improve from the beginning of the year to the end!

Become a Movie Director

The projects below are great ideas for incorporating video in the classroom

Have Students Tell Their Story

Using a mobile phone, Screencastify, or Clipchamp on a Chromebook to record your personal narrative. Tell your story in 2 or 3 minutes

Record Interviews

Students can use applications like Flipgrid or Recap to record interviews, testimonials, opinions and more. There's no need to big cameras for man-on-the-street type research.

Create an RSA-style whiteboard animation video with your kids

Here's a great blog post that walks you through the process of planning, filming and editing an RSA-style animation. But it can be done with a little prep, a white board and some colored markers, a mobile device or Chromebook, and a video editor like WeVideo.

This is a great example of a student-created RSA video explaining the Louisiana Purchase.

Have students record themselves giving a presentation, reading a book, or giving a tour with Google Earth

Using Screencastify is super easy for kids of all ages, and it's a great way to capture and practice public speaking without taking up a week of class time. This is a great way as well for them to share their writing with other students. This is also an easy way for students to use a website like Google Earth to record a geographic exploration or a tour with Google Tour Builder. They could also use a presentation website like Prezi or Sutori.

Start a Video Journal

Students can easily keep a video journal of 30 second clips using Alice Keeler's Webcam Extension which easily records up to 30 seconds of webcam time and saves it right into their Google Drive. They could then easily embed the videos in a Google Slideshow or on a Google Site, submit them with Google Classroom or simply share the folder.

Create a fun slideshow with Google Photos

Using the Google Photos App (on Android and iOS), the new Assistant will automatically create a fun movie from the videos and photos you select. You can't do this as easily on the web version of the app, but it's a quick and easy way to make a video on the run!

This short video walks you through the movie creation process with Google Photos.

Use Green Screen Effects to Go INTO the Diorama

Using Green Screen effects in video editing apps like WeVideo, students can record a presentation from any location you want. Have them present their information in a visually appealing way with creativity and some fun!

Create Your Own GIFs for Fun or Instruction!

Who doesn't love a good gif? Use the free site Giphy to find or create your own gifs from your own videos, found videos, or images.
