A tool that has been very useful to myself and my students is Google Drive. My students can create a presentation (similar to powerpoint) or a word document (similar to Microsoft Word) and share it with me. I can edit their work (mostly I help with spelling) anytime from any computer.
Students will make a presentation for their history class and share it with me. I can be at home or in my classroom and I can help them along or just read it, comment, and help the student feel more confident. I’ve worked with students even when they are at home and I am at school!
In addition to sharing with me, students will share with a parent. What a great way to work together! What a confidence booster for students!
If you have Gmail, click “Drive” at the top of the page to discover what you can do.
Here is a poster I put by our computers to help with shortcuts.
