October 14 LCS Faculty Workshop

GOAL: To discover online tools which will enable you to 'go paperless' in your classroom while providing engaging ways for your students to take tests and hand in assignments.

Links! - Create and administer online quizzes and tests for students of all grade levels. - An easy way to store and share documents, presentations, and other file types.

Blogspot - Communicate with students online and provide a forum for students to actively participate in discussions. Post questions and read/respond to student comments.

The databases! Please see the bookmark of passwords to log in to the Laurens databases. Visit the library's website for links to all databases.

Also...have you heard about youtube for teachers? Youtube has created a teacher channel which contains curated video lists which are suitable for teachers to use. There are many useful videos and uses for youtube in the classroom - check it out!
