Greetings! We know our Tech Tips have been somewhat scarce this year — but we are looking forward to having the time to publish more of them, during the upcoming school year. In the meantime, here’s one for June…
In yesterday’s professional development session for content area teachers, one of the ideas discussed was the use of Google Sheets as an organizer. This has a lot of potential and, for those who are interested, we have included a link to one which I have been using for the past couple years. Why use a Google Sheet as a graphic organizer? It has a number of benefits, including:
- real-time collaboration and feedback
- the ability to sort details according to their use in the paper
- the ability to limit the view, so a student only sees the details for one section / paragraph at a time.
