Creating a Google site for each class!
Your GOOGLE DRIVE is where it all happens!
Google meets World Languages

How to create a
for Homework Assignments
Let's visit my Google Drive!
Access your Google Drive from ANYWHERE!
How I used my Google Drive iPhone app in the classroom this year...
Trinity Preparatory School's Annual
A FINAL TOUCH:
Add your Padlet to your class blog/LMS/site!
Students interviewed their grandparents using the questionnaire on Google Docs and typed their answers in the target language directly on the Padlet wall.
I created a questionnaire
on Google Doc.
I made it "Public on the Web"
and shared it with my students before class.
Students accessed my Google Doc questionnaire in their Google Drive via the "Shared with me" tab or via their email on their own device.
Students could also "make a copy" of the Google Doc Questionnaire (under File) and type their answers in their Google Doc copy, then copy and paste the answers in the Padlet wall.
Access your Google Drive
on your smart phone.
Take pictures with your smart phone.
Add pictures stored in your smart phone to your Google Drive.
Upload the pictures located in your
Google Drive on a blank Padlet wall
from your computer and email the Padlet link to your students.
(select your preferred folder &
click on the + sign!)
While you (the teacher) are uploading the pictures on a blank Padlet wall on your computer, students are actively engaged! They are busy interviewing their grandparents, guided by a Google Doc questionnaire I shared with them earlier!
What is Google Drive?
Students interview their grandparents and transfer the information in the target language on a virtual wall (padlet.com). They type the answers next to their Grandparent's picture. They are using their laptop or the school's. The wall is being projected for the entire class to see. It is being updated "live" before our eyes!
We described our summer and shared pictures of ourselves for our "ePals" from Bretagne, France, in the very same way!
Work with pictures from your immediate surroundings (the classroom, the campus, the cafeteria, students, and upload them quickly to your Google Drive! Create a personal connection within each assignment, make students reliable and proud of their work!
Describe students' appearance:
hair/eye color, height, etc.
Describe their clothes
Describe items in the cafeteria
Describe the campus
What I like the most about Google Docs:
Saved in the cloud,
Accessible from ANYWHERE!
ASSESSING STUDENT WRITING IN GOOGLE DOCS
Student creates a Google Doc from Google Drive and writes in the target language, then shares with his teacher.
Student Google Doc is now forever located in Teacher's "Shared with me" folder in Google Drive and easy to go back to. Teacher opens Student Google Doc and inserts comments, corrections, suggestions.
Student corrects. No need to share again.
Teacher is able to view the Google Doc's revision history (who did what and when was it done.)
Teacher gives a final grade.
(in the Sharing Settings, Student selects the "Can Edit" when sharing with Teacher.)
It's all about the student and his/her environment!
ADDING VOICE COMMENTS IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE IN GOOGLE DOCS
This is how it looks like:
In your Google Drive, right click on any Google Doc and "open with Kaizena"
Go to kaizena.com and add the Google Doc of your choice.
and add the
App to your Google Drive
App to your Google Drive via the App Store on Chrome
If your choose the "Post link in GDoc" option, click on the Google Doc's COMMENTS to access the Kaizena Voice comments.
Ben's Voice comments:
Let's try it together!
Add Kaizena first!
Highlight a selection of text and record your voice comment for students to listen to in the target language.
Choose how you would like to share your voice comments with your student.
A helpful tutorial!
If your choose the "Send email" option, Kaizena will email your student the link to your voice comments.
Use Google Presentation as a visual platform for oral presentations done in the target language!
Student oral presentation on a selected
Students work in pair, read and analyze a French traveler's diary entry related to his trips to French speaking Africa.
A beginner's French 1A oral:
Google Slides are perfect for GROUP PROJECTS!
Students work independently or collaboratively on
the same presentation from ANYWHERE!
It is a collaboration piece.
"My classmate did not do anything!"
Go to the
to make sure that the workload was shared equally within a group of students.
Students share their Google
Presentation with the teacher.
The teacher projects the presentation on the screen
for the entire class to see.
A collaborative assignment:
Explaining Halloween to our French ePals
Gather data, get feedback, quiz students, get organized!
Getting organized for the annual
French State Competition
with Google Sheets
Teacher creates a blank Google Sheet and shares with students.
Students fill out the Google Sheet in their own time with
the info you requested.
Students have access to the
info on their mobile devices
and laptops should they need it at the event. So do you!
Mid-year Student feedback with Google Form:
Results appear in a spreadsheet format:
ADVISORY program - Getting to know you:
I got to know a little about my advisees before the 1st day of class!
Build tests and quizzes in Google Forms.
Add pictures and videos to the mix!
Results appear in a Google Spreadsheet:
Open your drive, click on Create and select FORM.
Choose a title and a theme.
Choose your Form Settings.
Select a question type.
Make sure the first question is the student's name to be able to tell who took the quiz!
Add "items" until you are done with the quiz.
Click the "Send Form" button and ...
Embed in a blog, site, LMS
To view your students' responses, go back to your Form and click on "Responses"!
Build a self/auto-graded assignment
in Google Forms with FLUBAROO!
Google Forms... How?
Flip your classroom
with Google Forms!
Current events, YouTube tutorials, your very own screencasts, songs, pictures, articles, the list is endless!
Click on Add-ons and add the FLUBAROO script.
When you are finished creating your Google Form, click on "View live form" and take the quiz as the TEACHER. Submit the correct answers, which will serve as the key later.
Click on "View responses" to access the responses gathered in a Google Spreadsheet.
The grading part is very easy, simply choose the options that apply to you!
Students love receiving their grades via email right after submitting their answers!
When building your quiz in Google Form, make sure your first 2 questions are:
1) the student's name
2) the student's email address
This will allow you to identify the student AND allow Flubaroo to instantly email his/her grade when done taking the quiz.
Make these questions
Students love this:
Teachers love this:
A great tutorial!
Assessing students' ORAL PRESENTATIONS in the classroom:
A Google Form Rubric
Click on File and "make a copy" of your template
Give the form a new name (French 2 - Period 3 - Date) and save it in the folder of your choice in your Google Drive.
Open and use the same form for all students in a single class.
Flip your classroom with a great app in your Google Drive:
3 SIMPLE WAYS TO INSTALL THE APPLICATION:
1) Go www.videonot.es and connect to your Google Drive.
2) Get it through the Chrome Web Store.
3) In your Google Drive, click on CREATE on the left of your screen, click on “Connect more apps” (Connect apps to drive). Type videonot.es in the search window and add it to your drive by clicking on +Connect.
- Watch videos and take notes at the same time, on the same screen.
- Automatically synchronize your notes and video. Just click on a line of your notes to jump to the related part of the video.
-Everything is automatically stored in your Google Drive, to access them everywhere.
How I used it with my students:
A review of reflexive verbs in my French 2 class with a Mr. Bean video!
A reflection on the excessive
use of mobile devices within the AP theme of Science and Technology in HON French 4.
own screencasts on videonot.es and ask students to leave a comment, conjugate a verb, solve a Math equation, etc.
CONNECT and COLLABORATE
with other professionals sharing your interests from around the globe!
GOOGLE + Communities is a great source of Professional Development!
LEARN from them, stay current and innovative within your field of expertise!
How Educators and Schools Can Make the Most of Google Hangouts
in and outside the classroom, something to explore!
NEXT (ACADEMIC) YEAR, I am interested in exploring:
- Project Based Learning
- Connecting Classrooms Across the World.
This past year, my students were connected to French Middle School students in Brittany, France and Québécois High School students via ePals.com.
Can Google Hangouts help me achieve these goals and help me and my students make connections outside of the classroom and collaborate?
To be continued!!!
How Google Hangouts look like:
TWO helpful articles (there are so many!)
"A teacher’s complete guide to using Google Voice to collect classwork and homework"
"How to use Google Voice in Education"
WHY USING GOOGLE VOICE?
STUDENTS record at home and embed in their blog/LMS, they can also email their recording to the teacher.
ABSENT during Language Lab day?
Students need extra practice for the AP Language exam and the lab is not available.
Students react to a text (an article, a short story, another classmate's blog entry) you had them read, a current event video you had them watch in the target language
Students recite poems, sing songs in the target language, practice a speech...
No Language Lab?
Google Voice could be helpful!
I create one calendar for each level I teach and more!
Each calendar is color coded
At the beginning of each year, I embed my Google calendars in my Class Google Sites.
Embed your Google calendars in your class website, blog or LMS by pasting the embed code into your web page.
I post homework assignments and upcoming quizzes and tests on my Google Calendars.
So easy to move your assignments around should you need to!
I invite "guests" (my students) to the events I create all the time. When they accept my invitation, that event now populates their calendar and they won't forget (hopefully!)
Add an attachment to your Google Calendar Event (great for homework assignments!)
You can copy an event from one Google calendar to another (National French Contest is tomorrow and all levels must attend!)
Why I LOVE Google Calendars:
MY GOOGLE CALENDARS
, a Google Apps Script for Google Forms and Sheets, and email students your feedback instantly!
Adding a Script to a Google Form to Email Responses - FormEmailer
The "Research" feature is AMAZING!
Beginner students are tourists for a day and
prepare their visit (cost, hours of operation, etc.)
Another Add-on like Flubaroo:
They sync the class Google calendar with their mobile phone, tablet or laptop.
Now they always know what the homework is!
Schedule and invite guests to a Google Hangout Video Call via Google Calendars!
