Possible Netbook Use

  1. 1. By: Ellie Hodges <br />7th and 8th Grade Science Teacher<br />How might a netbook be put to use?<br />
  2. 2. Google Documents<br />Every DeWitt student and teacher already has an account.<br />Documents are saved online, students can work on assignments from any computer with an internet connection.<br />Students can collaborate on presentations; they can add their own slides to a group presentation from any computer connected to the internet. Similarly, students can collaborate on a document.<br />Students can share an assignment with other students for peer editing.<br />Students can turn in assignments electronically by sharing them with their teachers. (at teacher’s discrection) <br />
  3. 3. Google Document<br />The next slide will show a google document I made for a continuing education class. I shared that document with a few other teachers and they added comments, which can be seen in yellow. This application could be used for peer editing or teacher feedback.<br />Note: I can access this document from an internet-connected computer, as can anyone I have shared it with. <br />
  4. 4. Google Document (with comments)<br />
  5. 5. Google Presentation<br />The next slide will show part of a presentation I did for one of my classes. I showed this presentation to my 7th grade classes, and then shared it with them so they could view it again at home if they wanted.<br />
  6. 6. Google Presentation<br />
  7. 7. Google Spreadsheets<br />The next slide will show a graph a student made for their science fair project this year. I was pleasantly surprised about how easy it was for students to enter their data into a spreadsheet in google docs and then create a graph. <br />
  8. 8. Google Docs Graph<br />
  9. 9. Exploratree<br />Exploratree is one of many websites where students can fill out a graphic organizer or mind map. In the example on the next page, students would click in the circles and type in their answers.<br />There are several pre-made graphic organizers, but students and teachers can also create their own.<br />
  10. 10. Exploratree<br />
  11. 11. Project Products<br />One thing I think is particularly exciting about the netbook project is the different options students will have for creating project products. <br />In the next few slides I will show a two sites (of many) that allow for students to use their creativity and produce some beautiful work. Those sites are Glogster and Toondoo<br />Note: the examples are from the internet, not DeWitt students.<br />

  13. 13. Glogster (bottom of page)<br />
  14. 14. Toondoo(French RevolutionComic Strip)<br />
  15. 15. Science Class Example<br />I could share a google doc with my students that provided them with a list of links around a particular topic. They could then go to those websites to read, watch or listen. When they had visited all of the sites I could have them summarize what they learned, answer questions, fill out a graphic organizer, have a group discussion, etc. Here are some examples of sites I might want my students to check out related to the topic of Earthquakes:<br />Earthquake Animations<br />Strongest/Deadliest Earthquakes Information<br />All About Earthquakes<br />
  16. 16. Other Cool Sites<br />Math: Mean and Median from Illuminations<br />Social Studies: National Archives, Timeline Creator<br />Language Arts: Myths and Legends Story Creator, Online Research Aid Diigo<br />Art: Online Art History Book, Livebrush: Online Drawing<br />Music: The Science of Music, Soundnation<br />Science: Human Impact Maps, Exploratorium: Online Science Museum<br />I have gathered education-related websites and shared them with staff.
