Have you noticed that your students sometimes don’t really give their very best effort? I find this especially true sometimes with digital assignments! It’s almost like they think it doesn’t count! Well, in my classroom it does! That’s one reason I am a firm believer that IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK promotes GROWTH MINDSET, and that can be made easy with digital assignments and Google Classsroom. So if you are using any technology or ipads in the classroom, this list is for you!
Here are 5 tools that I am using right now with Google Classroom that give immediate feedback, allow me to see student performance, and reassign what students weren’t successful with the first time.
5 Digital Tools to Provide Immediate Feedback
- ReadWorks Digital– This website allowed me to import my students from Google Classroom, and all they needed to do was use the code to join the class. I can assign FREE articles with comprehension quizzes in Google Classroom and check their progress. Tip: Inside of Google Classroom, assign this link to a topic titled “Read Works” so students can easily find the link and you won’t have to re-post the link every time you use it.
- Newsela– This is a great resource for up to date hot topics. You can assign the articles inside of Newsela, post the link to Google Classroom and create a topic titled “Newsela” to save yourself some time in the future. The articles are published on multiple levels, however third grade is the lowest they go, so it will be a struggle for your lower readers.
- Khan Academy– You can now assign Khan academy videos straight from their site to your Google Classroom. I schedule the posts days in advance so that students have fresh lessons each day.
- EdPuzzle is a fun way to put videos and questions together so that you can deliver a customized lesson! They have lots of videos to choose from, that you can crop so that you’re only using the parts you need. You add your own questions and assign through Google Classroom!
- Boom Cards– Now you can assign your purchased Boom Cards through Google Classroom! First, find the deck in your library and click the Action drop down. Select Hyperplay link. The created link will walk students through logging in and then immediately start deck play. Progress and performance will be logged for Hyperplay linked decks. Students receive that much needed immediate feedback which is critical for growth mindset. Be sure to check out my sets for Novel Studies!
