This past weekend, the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) Annual Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, offered a variety of useful, practical sessions. With so many great ideas and useful tools being shared, I wanted to make sure to pass along these ideas to colleagues. With that in mind, here are some thoughts on what I felt were the more useful tools shared at the conference. Click through the links and let me know in the comments if you have questions. If you’re already familiar and have other uses for these tools, please leave those suggestions in the comments as well.
- Using Suffixes in Google Suite (first in the #2minPD series #EagleEd)
- Annotating images using ThingLink (#2minPD coming soon)
- Using Padlet to Enhance Visible Thinking Routines
- Embedding Google Slides as Presentation
- Symbaloo to the Rescue!
This list is a work in progress, but I wanted to share it out as I’ve had some great conversations with colleagues today about wanting to learn more about what ECIS had to offer.
Please excuse the somewhat hastily put together posts, as I am still in the process of synthesizing notes from the ECIS Conference. I’m hopeful to find an effective way to share learning and reflect on how to best incorporate it into teaching practice. I know many of these tools aren’t particularly new, but hopefully if you’re already using them, you’ll be willing to share how they’re helping in your own teaching and student learning so we can all learn and work to improve our practice.
Happy reading, and please comment below if you have questions or suggestions…
