Just a reminder that the PD session I'm hosting starts in about 30 minutes. In case you missed my second announcement I had to move it to a new page to avoid confusing my teachers.

Here are the new links.

A challenge I have taken on in my position as Instructional Technology Specialist is seeing how much we can do in GAFE. This has meant looking at our initiatives, from instructional to operational, and seeing if we can transition them to Google Apps, even if it means writing an add-on, app,etc. This has been extremely beneficial for us, both from an instructional and a financial perspective.

This is why I have decided to do a Summer PD session for all of you called "GAFE From The Classroom To The Admin Building." These will be a weekly PD Hangout On Air where we will cover topics ranging from Community engagement to student portfolios. I will discuss not only the technology component but also the educational and/or community benefit behind the topic.

The First topic will be "Writing In The Cloud:Digital Student Portfolios." We'll discuss the benefits of student portfolios, the challenges, how we managed our writing portfolios in Drive, and how I expanded the system to work for more than just writing.

I'll post a link to the Hangout On Air soon with all the info. I look forward to hanging out.

I am creating a teacher PD program with digital badges and G+. Might use google classroom to organize badge paths. I would love to connect with someone who has experience using badges for PD. Still so much that confuses me - like where each teacher will store badges. I know Mozilla back pack but would that be overload with G+, classroom, and badges for a staff of widely varying tech comfortability?

So this has probably been discussed previously so sorry if it has.

Has anyone a good solution for creating assessments/quiz's from a question bank that you've already created?

Would also like the ability to edit questions as necessary.

This is from a math teacher so it would need to be able to include symbols/shapes/images.

Any thoughts?

Thanks +Erifili Davis​, they don't want to use Google forms as its to admin quizzes to lower school.

The new autocrat version 3 might be a solution as it can incorporate images now with its merges

We have used Moodle for many years with our K-12 schools. Schools have the option of choosing which LMS they wish to use. The majority of them have now migrated to Google Classroom. From an administrator standpoint, I would prefer they all make the switch to Google Classroom, however, our office won't force the issue.

My strategy for guided notes in Google Classroom. Teachers can see every note ever taken in their classroom!
Teachers have long used lecture with PowerPoints, Google Slides, and other tools to deliver content. With advances in educational technology, we need to ask some important questions about this practice.What strategy does not differentiate, is teacher-centered, and requires all students to work at roughly the same pace?Lecture.What is the most diffi...

Great assessment tools for those using Google Apps as an LMS.
We've all been there: the post-observation conference. Much like a job interview, it can be nerve-wracking, especially for new teachers. Much like job interviews, there are a few questions that should be expected. One of those questions is:How did you group the students?This blog post will help you answer this question and look like a pro doing so....

About this community

Recently, a few of us have begun using Google Apps as a free learning management system (LMS) to create and teach courses. But there is a lot to learn. And the technologies keep evolving. This led to the idea of collaborating to create free crowdsourced classes and other resources to help us learn. To share this community verbally with others, just say "Bit dot ly slash free lms" http://bit.ly/freelms

My favorite tool for class discussion is Verso. Better than ask a question in Google Classroom or other discussion tools in LMSs. It's super easy too with its "sign in with Google" and great integration with YouTube!
Teachers need to have students converse, discuss, and debate. At the same time, whole class discussion has some inherent challenge: Classroom management – getting students to follow rules, ta…
