Dr. Monica Burns - Leveraging Choice & Agency to Hear from All Students
EdTech and Curriculum Consultant and Easy EdTech Podcast host Dr. Monica Burns joins me to identify ways that we can hear from ALL of our students. Her suggestion? Select tools that can give our learners choice and agency in how we hear from them! Tune in to hear what tools she suggests! Show notes also available at jakemiller.net/eduducttape-episode-57 Soapbox Moment: “It’s the Chili Dogs’ Fault” Today’s Guest: Dr. Monica Burns Monica is an EdTech and Curriculum Consultant, author and former New York City public school teacher, and works with schools and organizations around the world. Monica’s website ClassTechTips.com and her Easy EdTech Podcast help educators place “tasks before apps” by promoting deeper learning with technology.

Giving kids choice, agency, and options increases your ability to hear from everyone. What tools can assist with providing choice? Remove barriers for students by selecting tools that allow more students to participate. Ask yourself, “How can we leverage tools that my students and I already use?” Seesaw - An any age tool! Seesaw breakdown: Teachers push out activities (assignments) to students. Students can respond to an activity as directed or more open ended. Many ways for students to respond and show their work - Picture, video, draw, video of drawing, text, links, files, audio Seesaw can act as a LMS. Think Google Classroom + digital portfolio + parent communication! The Easy Ed Tech Podcast episode discusses Seesaw + Book Creator: https://classtechtips.com/2020/10/06/icons-in-early-childhood-082/ “I already have Google Classroom. Do I need Seesaw?” - It doesn’t have to be an either/or. Depends on goals and learning environment. Could be used for only a couple of students for those that need more ways to respond. Lots of complementary aspects of using it. BookCreator - audio, video, picture responses for students. From Jake’s Blog - 16 types of Media you can add in Book Creator! Great for a culminating project and for students publishing work, but also could also be for everyday learning note-taking or journal. Padlet Easy Ed Tech podcast - “My #1 EdTech Tip for Teachers” Google Slides is another great example of an easy tool that can be leveled up and has many uses.

Through personalized support, Mrs. Taylor works with teachers and teacher leaders to craft professional goals to extend their scope of instruction and meet the needs of all learners. Contact Info: Twitter: @knikoleEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgWebsite: knikoletaylor.com #EduDuctTape Question: How can I formatively assess my students? Pear Deck - “It doesn’t feel like an assessment.” Available SEL Templates Nearpod Jamboard students respond with or without name on a jam. Knikole recommends: Putting 1 question per frame Using post-it colors strategically (red = I don’t get it, yellow = I’m not so sure, green = I’m ready to share) Discussing digital citizenship when using Jamboard We discussed the lack of a revision history on Jamboard. However, it has rolled out in the time since the interview was recorded! See Alice Keeler's article about the Revision History in Jamboard here. Padlet - “you can do so many different things!” Students can respond with text, videos, audio, images, drawings, screencasts, links.... just about anything! The big issue is the limitations of their free plan. For a new user, you'll only get 3 active "walls," but you can archive, delete, or clear them. Individual Pricing or School Pricing Mentimeter - lots of different options (polls, quizzes, word clouds, Q&A, etc) The big issue here is that their free plan only allows 2 question slides and 5 quiz slides per presentation. Here is their education Pricing Formative - great for data and tracking of standards-based mastery Their paid plan adds in student growth tracking Classkick Students can add Audio Teachers can jump into student slides Students can help each other The Celebration of the Adjacent Possible!

At the time of the recording, he was the Fine Arts Support Teacher (FAST) for Fulton County School (FCS) and the Music Specialist at Wolf Creek Elementary in Atlanta, Georgia.

Most recently, he was awarded the title of 2019-2020 South Learning Community Teacher of the Year for Fulton County Schools. Contact Info: @mrhallpass (Twitter/Instagram) 2 Truths & 1 Lie #EduDuctTape Question: How can we implement technology in the music classroom to engage students in music-learning and music-making? Casey advocates for the use of edtech in order to be culturally relevant for your students Casey’s question for himself: “How are my students making music each day” Mobile apps to use as a tuner or as an instrument NearPod Initially, Casey used it all on his teacher screen As time went on and Casey got access to more devices, he increased his use of its formative assessment features Nearpod can still be useful if you're not 1:1, Casey has used with students in groups or in stations The use of Nearpod for data collection across multiple classes and 100s of students was valuable for Casey Nearpod VR allows him to present in a more rich way One of the music education standards involving connecting music to other elements and showing a location relating to the music hits this. Draw It slides to draw rhythms, show compositions, etc. to replace paper processes Flipgrid - for Chorus auditions Incredibox - premade loops GarageBand - not the best in primary grades Casey’s advice: start small, it’s okay to take small steps.

"We are coming from a position where we have always taught it without technology, we should give ourselves a lot of grace." In-N-Out burger question Find similar problems at robertkaplinsky.com/lessons Desmos Activity Builder for a real-world problem Desmos has pre-built classroom activities, as well as the "Activity Builder" for making your own. Use drag-and-drop editing to add content to an interactive slide deck (text boxes, sketches, graphs, etc.) Slides can be oneway (providing info to students) or interactive (text questions, drag-and-drop, sketch, card sorts, etc.) Can see an overlay view that is similar to what Pear Deck offers Teacher.desmos.com Desmos Marbleslides Desmos can anonymize student names and freeze student screens Sliders let students explore elements of problems, patterns, and graphs (for example, changing the m or b in y=mx + b) "A lot of the way that we value mathematics in the United States is on getting the right answers quickly and efficiently. As a teacher, I was really good at creating math robots who could get the answers, but really didn't know what they were talking about." Focus on real-world problem-solving in mathematics → mathematical modeling "It's easy to enter into, but challenging to master and that, I think, is very satisfying in general."

However, they aggressively rewrite their first drafts.” - Julian Shapiro (post) James Clear's tweet: "Your favorite athlete's first workout was just as bad as yours. Your favorite chef's first meal was just as bad as yours. Your favorite artist's first work was just as bad as yours. Keep going." Today’s Guest: Mike Abrams Mike is a tech specialist at a high school in Virginia who aims to inspire teachers to design lessons to support their students. Mike is a career switcher who moved into education after 10 years in Call Center management & training facilitation. Mike is a curious dabbler who tinkers with everything.

Contact Info: Twitter: @abramstank95, Email: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Which of the following is less torturous? Educational Duct Tape Question - As educators what strategies can we use to help students process media propaganda messages? Show multiple perspectives Look at examples: Instagram post about Usain Bolt having COVID-19 that actually shows a picture of Kevin Hart Understanding the motive and reason that someone may post something misleading or untrue Looking at similar stories from different perspectives How to package a lesson where students view news videos from different sources then compare/contrast and reflect on them. EdPuzzle - build in reflection questions and compare/contrast activities Google Site - package all of that content into one location - even embed the EdPuzzles on the site! Fake Sites to look at: Save the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus - zapatopi.net/treeoctopus Dihydrogen Monoxide - DHMO.org The Dog Island - thedogisland.com Be sure to combine fake sites with real sites that seem suspicious History of Fake News Timeline from Common Sense Media Look at historical events from 2 perspectives - American Revolution from the American perspective and the British perspective. “There’s two sides to every story, but the truth lies right in the middle.” Dragnet: “Just need the facts. Only the facts.” Look at sites that link out to ads or posts to fake content (Yahoo, etc.), look for use of stock photography Celebration of the Adjacent Possible!
