  • 2 Truths & 1 Lie
  • Question #1: What would be the best way to communicate and share tech-related tips and content with teachers who don't even open emails or have little planning time? I've tried a Google Classroom, newsletters (Adobe Spark, Google newsletter templates), emails, etc. Would love to hear some new ideas!
    • audience submitted question, Cathy Zandecki
    • Part of the issue is communicating with people who are uncomfortable with tech through technology.
      • Communicate via paper-based
      • Potty PD, Copier PD
    • Use multiple different communication techniques: email, Google Classroom, newsletter, paper flyers, mention at meetings
    • Make sure you’re consistently bringing value in order to keep your “audience” listening
    • Use visual design, possibly color-coding
    • How to decide when to give up on a strategy?
      • Concrete observations
      • Watch what happens if you do take it away
    • Sethi: “It’s not about you.  It’s the same as with your students: if they’re starting to use a technique or something that you’ve taught them, you’re not there for the credit.  You’re not doing that so that they’ll say ‘So-and-so taught me this.’ No, no no, they’ve got this now!  That is the reward!”
  • Question #2: How can we leverage the power of video to impact student learning?

    • An expanded version of Jakes’ “beard & glasses” story - Episode 11
    • Don’t over-use video
    • Sethi: All teachers and students should create video!
    • Screencasting
    • Flipgrid
    • Sethi’s recommendation: keep videos used in the classroom short;  2 minutes
    • Interaction built into video can be helpful
    • Be present and available for students when they’re viewing the video
    • Break up a video on Google Slides to make it smaller chunks
    • Put video onto Google Sites and use Insert Learning to embed questions
    • Use a backchannel chat tool
    • Students creating video
      • iPad screen recorders
      • Chromebook screencasting
        • Nimbus screen recorder does screenshots and video, no limited amount of time & no watermark, premium allows HD, limited editing options -
        • Loom extension, limited editing options
        • Screencastify & Screencast-o-matic have time limits
        • Limitations are editing
      • Quicktime on Mac
      • Game Recording on PC 
      • Camtasia on Mac or PC
    • Sethi on choosing which tool to have students use: “It is whatever works for you, because I’m not there to see how you’re using a tool or how you’re using the tech.  I want to see did you actually understand what we talked about? Did you get the content rather than the tool.”
