I have created a new app for public use called the "resourceThingy" (EPSB users get an added bonus...) The app allows users to search math resources curated by other users (for now I am the only one contributing, but please do add your own!). Any teacher or student can use the app. 

Users (students or teachers) can:
» search via keywords or tags to help find a specific resource. Tags are based on the K-9 math POS objectives
» create (or remove) folders to organize their resources and add resources to their folders
» change folder colors
» rate resources (☆☆☆☆☆)

As of now, only EPSB teachers are authorized to add resources to the app's db. as well, only EPSB staff and students can make folders and add resources to the folders.

Go ahead, try it out if you would like. I would love any feedback, positive or negative. As well, if you have any feature requests, let me know and I will see what I can do.

I revamped the mySites app to include searches and posted it onto the chrome web store for EPSB.ca users. 

FEATURES: 

1. displays sites from either share.epsb.ca, epsb.ca OR both domains together.
2. You can now search for sites.

Let me kow if there are any issues...

FOR EPSB USERS ONLY...enjoy!!
This extension displays and searches your epsb.ca and share.epsb.ca Google Sites. For Edmonton Public School employees only.

Using Mini-Lesson Templates with Google Classroom = quick and easy assessment that matters!

EXAMPLE: Self Check: Do I know the objective?

SYNOPSIS: This is a mini lesson using a quick little self-check. We have already completed the main lesson and now we are going to apply it to a piece of writing. This task allows students to perform a SELF-CHECK and see if they are really making sure their sentence beginnings have some variety. It is meant to be used on a prior piece of writing they have already completed, or have recently finished. This self-check can be applied to a wide variety of objectives, especially in L.A. 

Check out the assignment at GooEd.org

Still looking for calendar integration so we can show/hide assignments (based on a clendar date selection) for a period of time so the classes can be rolled out year to year with the option to change what assignments are available to students and when. Also, we need a way to share classrooms with other teachers in team teaching situations...I have posted these as feature requests in feedback and on G+ ... but, the sqeaky wheel gets the grease, right?

Are either of these features coming around anytime soon?

Save those Google Docs for later...use exemplars in your class can help students understand the objectives. Show the exemplars in class and read them with your students to help them understand what your expectations are for excellence! http://bit.ly/1BXjyJA  #googledocs #gooed

Use student self-reflection to improve achievement-research backs it up!

A wide variety of research has shown that student self-reflection is one of the most important ways you can improve student achievement. This execise allows students to reflect on the objective and demonstrate their understanding.
