Here’s a quick list of resources I’ve compiled and share with our staff recently – thought my followers might like a piece of the action too.

I’m a Microsoft Innovative Educator, English and Media Studies teacher and currently working as a Learning Support Coordinator across all year levels and subjects so hopefully there’s something for everyone. (I’ve posted on most before so check the tag cloud for more details).

As you’ll be aware, a lot of online providers are offering free access to platforms and resources currently so it’s a good time to try them out. Before creating new content, have a look at what’s already on offer.

General:

  • Quizlet is offering free teacher access until the end of June
  • Kahoot is also offering free access to its premium service currently
  • Free stories on Audible
  • More stories from Radio NZ’s collection
  • Prepared lessons on Ted-Ed
  • BBC Bitesize – loads of lessons here too
  • The Literacy Shed – animations, music videos with teaching ideas. Primary/Year 9 or 10.
  • FlipGrid – Post a question, an idea, a problem and students make quick videos to respond (they can black the screen if shy)
  • Pear Deck – a PowerPoint extension enabling students to respond in real time to questions. Easy to install and use.
  • Wakelet – save, organise and curate content. Senior students research, whole class collaboration, teacher posts class readings
  • nzonscreen – free, NZ audio-visual content. Lots of the films from the 10, 11, 12 compilations are on here. Falling Sparrows  great for Years 9 and 10 in lead up to ANZAC. Lots of other ANZAC content on there too for seniors.

Microsoft Tips and Tools:

And this coming week, the last two Ask Me Anything Sessions led by Microsoft NZ experts.

As always, try only what you feel will work best for your students in your subject area.

And always keep the learning objective top of mind.

Also feel free to post a message or email me if you would like supporting resources I’ve created (Falling Sparrows, Literacy Shed and more).

Go well.
