It’s May and teacher’s minds are thinking of a time when Saturday is everyday, but join Tricia, Deb and Patrick as we discuss some interesting new Google form options, a great app for tracking articulation, and some personal EduWins. As well as a very dramatic reading of a classic, Sick, by Shel Silverstein! It’s Edceptional #43 – 2 More Mondays!
This week’s EdCeptional Minute is all about Chrome Apps and Extensions, what they are, how they work, and which ones should you try out. Join Deb and Patrick as they discuss this new tools and how you can use them in your classroom.
Current research shows that some of the most commonly used and seemingly positive phrases we use with kids are actually quite destructive. We talk about an article by Shelley Phillips that addresses this issue. We also look at a new Chrome app, Voice Comments, that is all the talk on Twitter. Patrick has some nice rubrics to share with you in our From the Trenches segment.
This show is about the sites that support reviews for apps designed to be used with children. Some of these sites are specifically for special education while others include apps for a wider population. These are the sites that we feel comfortable sharing with our listeners because they are our favorites.
The Edceptional team jumps back into recording with a new format. We will be recording a 30 minute show every other week and will be posting the “Edceptional Minute”; where we will spend five minutes giving you some practical hands on skills. Since April is Autism Awareness month, we explore 30 ideas in 30 days from Paula Kluth, as well as free apps for students with Autism. We end with some Eduwins and celebrations of student achievement!
