YouTube is discontinuing its built-in video editor, but there are still ways for your students to create movies using their Chromebooks! Try Adobe Spark or WeVideo. If you want the more robust, premium version of WeVideo for your classes, let me know, and I will get you a class subscription! WeVideo integrates nicely with Google Classroom (see below).

Focused Browsing Through Hapara

Giving a quiz you created in a Google Form? Want to push out an article for students to read for 15 minutes? Use Focused Browsing through your teacher dashboard in Hapara!

This website gives a detailed look at how to use Focused Browsing with a Google form (quiz) – check out the site for lots of info, or the video for a quick how-to. And as always, schedule an appointment with me if you’d like more help!

Flipgrid is a super-fast way to get student reactions using just a quick online code and a Chromebook!

The whole thing, from set up to execution, took under 10 minutes. And it’s free!
