Two new Google Form Add-Ons

There are two really nice add-ons for Google Forms. 

Use this to create math equations or graphs in Google Docs or Google Forms.

Form Limiter
Use this to limit the time period that your form is accepting responses or limit the number of responses that are allowed.

I highly recommend giving either of these two add-ons a try!!

A Really Cool Presentation!

Last night my co-worker and I presented to our local Parent Association. We focused on how our teachers are using Chromebooks with our students. 

Check out our presentation by clicking here.

As you can see, our teachers have jumped right in with using new technologies with their students and I have so much appreciation for their willingness to make a difference in the education of their students. 

I created the presentation using a site called emaze. I want to thank my friend, Naomi Harm, for sharing emaze with me. This really is an amazing presentation tool.  I highly recommend giving emaze a try with your students.

Booktrack Classroom

Booktrack is amazing and free! It allows you to take a piece of writing and add sound. When a person reads your writing, they will be also listening to music or sound effects that you have added.

Watch this video explanation:

There are also hundreds of stories just waiting to be read with music.
Choose to import your own writing or use one of the free books available. Book track is very easy to use. There are free video tutorials to watch and learn how.

I highly recommend giving Booktrack a try!
