CYBERBULLYING

C

yberbullying has become a very crucial issue with
the ever increasing popularity of technology in
schools. While many students use this technology
responsibly there are some that may use it to harm
and humiliate their peers. It is important that we teach our children and students to use technology and social media responsibly.
Here are some tips to help bring cyberbullying to and end. First
we should monitor our children’s social media pages, we should
be aware of who their friends are and what they are saying. We
should also limit our children’s time using technology. This includes cellphones, tablets and other communication devices. We
should also talk to our children about what cyberbullying is and
explain to them why it is bad to do so. I believe that with the help
of everyone we can stop cyberbullying.

WEEBLY

W

eebly.com is a very interesting website, you
can say it’s a place where you can create your
own place in cyberspace. This easy to use website allows you to drag and drop anything into
your created website. One great use for this site is to create a
class webpage a place for your parents and students to come and
see what’s going on in your classroom. Also it’s a chance to help
those parents who are always on the go, they will be able to keep
up with due dates, important messages from the teacher, and we
can save the environment at the same time by not having to send

PREZI

rezi, is a great tool to
use when presenting
information to your students’.
Why use Prezi? Perzi presents
information in a more interactive way, instead of multiple
stagnant slides you can create
multiple sides, but the screens

pan and zoom from slide to
slide. When using Prezi you
also can create a mode that follows a flow you can fly from
planet to planet or across the
parts of a flower. No matter the
information you are presenting
Prezi is a way to present it in a
more exciting, interactive, and
engaging way.

“Prezi will engage the mind of each and every student in your class!!”

EDMODO

E

dmodo, a great tool in the classroom for multiple tasks,
this tool allows the teacher to do many things with the
class as a whole. One great way to use Edmodo in the classroom
is getting information to the students as a group for instance, if
you want the entire class to know that there is a quiz is coming up
and to give them a study guide just create a post and embed the
study guide in the post and there you go your entire class has the
information. Another great way to use Edmodo is if you wanted
to poll your students about the lesson from the week, all you have
to do is create one in Edmodo and wait for your students to respond. There are so many other ways to use Edmodo such as,
posting grades, creating assignments a place to turn in work or
even a quiz. No matter how you use Edmodo it will change the
way you interact with your class.

ACTIVE INSPIE THE FUTURE

ctiveinspire, an innovative program, that as a teacher
we can use as a flip chart to write on, to create a
power point type presentation, but the most exciting part of this
program is the academic games that you can create for your students. Active inspire can be used in many ways, the optimal way
to use this is to use it with a smart board or a promethean board.
This activities that you can create using this program can be used
to engage students in the lesson. When using it as a whiteboard
flip chart it is easy to use many colors to explain or diagram a
lesson. When using it as a power point you can place pictures
over the information and reveal it as needed, this not only gives
the students the information needed but it also grabs their attention with a picture first. The last and most exciting thing about
Active inspire are the academic games that you can create. Many
of the game require student involvement and allow for a little
“Edutainment”. No matter how you use Active Inspire, I’m sure
that your students will be inspired to become active in their education.
