It is good to see such a diverse group of locations of educators.
Juli Ross-Kleinmann
28:05
Yes.
Marvyn Anthony
28:46
Just a reminder for folks to address “all panelists and attendees” in the chat so everyone can join in on the discussion! :)
Catherine Hines

All Star Panel!
Bri Skywall
35:44
Excited to hear from all!
Marvyn Anthony
35:46
Absolutely!
Marvyn Anthony
38:20
Great idea to use student insight too
Helaine Marshall
38:42
Actually,I build in redundancy, precisely because people think differently. I try and put the same item in more than one place - is that not indicated?
Candice Chambers
39:37
Helaine, I also build in redundancy for that reason.
Sylvia Quigley
39:49
@helaine - I do same with college courses. And review where everything is at first class meeting
Juli Ross-Kleinmann
40:39
so true...thank you for saying that.
Jennifer Courduff
40:54
Great thoughts here!
Shelly Vohra

Backwards design
Sylvia Quigley
42:34
I use audio and video for grading feedback and find students respond to that more than written feedback
Peter Hessling
42:40
Hi, all . I'll see if I can in the next few minutes, or if I can't, I can probably put it in the Wakelet.
Shelly Vohra
42:51
That’s great Jill
Shelly Vohra
43:07
A netiquette thread as well
Dana Williams
43:11
We’re only a few minutes into this, and I’m already pumped about the information shared! Love the way video and audio creates a connection to the teacher AND it makes it more accessible.
Dr. Susan Poyo
43:38
Ain my online Math class we call this general discussion thread the “Muddiest Point”
Candice Chambers
43:42
I use that strategy as well, Jean. I call the optional discussion forum "Houston, We Have a Problem …" and I encourage students to help solve one another's problems.
Dr. Susan Poyo
44:39
Predictability breeds more security and less stress
Marvyn Anthony
44:45
@Nadia, presentation slides had not been shared, but they will be included with the recording of this webinar
Sylvia Quigley
44:45
Yes! uniform look eases student anxiety. Good LMS helps with that.
Mary Mehsikomer
45:03
It saves so much time for students when they can easily figure out how and where to find content.
Shelly Vohra
45:45
Yes! Helps when they don’t have to go to too many places to look for things
Catherine Hines
46:30
I hope someone speaks about organization of time. IN asynchronous class, do you post all modules at once at work through at own pace with final due date OR post one module with weekly due date
Sylvia Quigley
46:31
great point. Students need to know grade impact of late/incomplete/missing work
Peter Hessling
46:33
Here you go (the course map)! I'll see about putting it in the Wakelet as well. If you have any questions (e.g., about the "meta-assignments"), let me know: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1okvSdJXBDWnBM7RHk-Ejd1DPFqAxc65lX-rKqR-6P0Y/edit?usp=sharing
Sylvia Quigley
47:41
I grade in color - black + content, red = grammar/writing, purple= APA/MLA style. This related to the assignment rubric
Peter Hessling
48:24
The trickiest part of the map was constructing objectives for the peer teaching. Which LOs should be used? Objectives for peer teaching? Or objectives for the content? Or both?
Candice Chambers
48:51
I like to use REPLY for feedback. Feedback should be R: Responsive, E: Effective, P: Positive, L: Learning (include specific suggestions for improvement), Y: You (make it personal and not just a standard response)
Shelly Vohra
49:01
I do based on descriptive feedback @Gaby
Peter Hessling
49:22
Here's how I handled the peer teaching problem:
Peter Hessling
49:29
" Each Peer Teaching Experience Module has two specific objectives that the teaching group needs to address. They are free to add their own learning objectives for their “students” (peers) as well. ."
Jennifer Courduff
49:46
Shelly - Choose all panelists and attendees. Otherwise Gaby won’t see your comment :)
Shelly Vohra
49:47
I have an Announcemnts thread; a Questions thread, netiquette thread, reflection questions thread, and a cafe section
Jerilyn Muccio
50:04
Could you please share the link to the Wakelet, Peter? (Helping a student, so I logged in late and missed it.)
Shelly Vohra
50:16
I do based on descriptive feedback @Gaby
Marvyn Anthony
51:00
Hi all, here is the link to the wavelet: https://wakelet.com/wake/yt5cZjvEOcmLfpFMd9iA6
Peter Hessling
51:16
There is a link to the Wakelet at the end of the presentation. I'm sure we'll be adding more stuff as well later!
Marvyn Anthony
51:23
This will also be included with the slides and the recording for the webinar!
Peter Hessling
51:29
Ah, thanks, Marvyn!
Marvyn Anthony

This year with my university students, I also have started sending out weekly announcements for upcoming events - like whether or not we are having a Zoom meeting, any assignments due this week or coming up, etc.
Cyndy Harrison
52:02
I like the look back and look ahead! Very good for students to reflect back and make sure they took care of everything and a way to have them be forward thinking to plan well.
Jerilyn Muccio
52:06
Thank you!
Shelly Vohra
52:10
I have an Announcemnts thread; a Questions thread, netiquette thread, reflection questions thread, and a cafe section
Rebecca Dowdy
52:30
I use Flipgrid for students to send a reply to a prompt and then I'm able to address misconceptions during class.
Shelly Vohra
52:43
Flipgrid is great!
Fan Chen
52:43
My students love to use Flipgrid to express their options. Peardeck is a great way to collect the students’ feedbacks too.
Sylvia Quigley
52:48
I post an announcement in LMS and send the exact message in email to all students. Multiple channels and access.
Peter Hessling
52:53
Love the flipgrid idea! I need to play with more.
Shelly Vohra
53:09
Lots of great tools - pentameter, Kahoot!, paddle, Canva
Jean Kiekel
53:16
You can have students sign in by posting their name in the chat
Shelly Vohra
53:20
Mentimeter*
Candice Chambers
53:30
I like to post a question in Socrative and ask students to answer that as they enter the classroom. I use the responses for attendance.

Rachelle Dene Poth
54:15
Love using Loom
Sylvia Quigley
54:16
Jeopardy labs is fun and very engaging. I teach to many campuses in multiple states simultaneously and this has been a great tool for exam review
Candice Chambers
54:16
Yes! Loom is great!
Dennis McElroy
54:21
hi Rachelle!
Fan Chen
54:23
I used Forms(either google form or Microsoft form) to take attendance. I often ask a silly question in the form as well.
Frances Peterson-Murray
54:26
loom is great
Shelly Vohra
54:29
Both Jeopardy and Loom are great!
Jennifer Courduff
54:44
Loom pro is free for teachers forever!!!
Christopher Johnson
55:12
Adobe has a cool tool called Character Animator that allows you to present animations
Candice Chambers
55:20

Sylvia Quigley
55:50
I have stuffed Peep toys! The college students like them! Pass the Peep exercise to get all students involved in discussion
Therese Phillips
56:14
Did you say loom?
Peter Hessling
56:24
I find that Loom (not Zoom!) is way easier to use for small tasks than Screencastify.
Peter Hessling
56:40
Yes, Loom - a Chrome extension.
Rebecca Dowdy
56:45
there was a great ISTE webinar about being HUMAN
Peter Hessling

https://support.loom.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006579637-Loom-for-Education-Free-for-Students-and-Teachers
Dana Williams
57:09
First time learning about Loom! Is it primarily for teacher use, or is it a student tool as well?
Catherine Hines
57:29
Where does Loom save the video?
Peter Hessling
57:36
Man, I'm enjoying the ideas flowing in here!
Dana Williams
57:36
Follow-up: Do you know if it’s FERPA/COPPA compliant?
Jennifer Courduff
57:36
In Loom!!!
Candice Chambers
57:40
Perfection is the enemy of the good...
Lucia Ramirez
58:05
But you can download the video from Loom and then delete it
Catherine Hines
58:59
Saves in Loom as an extension? OH, i am guessing online? I like Screencastify saving it in Google Drive
Cyndy Harrison
59:06
Authentic connections with students is critical!
Helaine Marshall
59:07
Love CoI! Just published an article on teaching presence in online flipped learning
Jean Kiekel
59:46
Something I learned about creating teacher presence when you don’t do a lot of video is early in the course, I answer EVERYTHING. This is difficult to maintain so after about week 3, I start backing off on answering EVERYTHING. By week 5 or 6 I am randomly answering discussion posts in the discussion board. However, one thing I always answer are in the Questions thread and Personal Threads.
Peter Hessling
59:51
Nice, Helaine! Do you have a link to your article?
Peter Hessling
01:00:05

Fan Chen
01:00:23
I have my students to sign group contract as well for the group project. They also need to do peer evaluation.
Helaine Marshall

I use Breakout rooms for groupwork in Big Blue Button. You can join and see what they are doing
Peter Hessling
01:01:13
Thanks! I think this is what I'm trying to do (with mixed success) in my grad class.
Jean Kiekel
01:01:37
My experience only goes to middle school
Candice Chambers
01:01:49
I highly recommend this book, The Online Teaching Survival Guide: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1119147689/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_azJAFbGRDV03R
Peter Hessling
01:02:24
Yes! That is an excellent book. We read it in a discussion group this summer. I totally recommend that book
Marvyn Anthony
01:02:28
Thanks for the recommendation Candice!
Shelly Vohra

I am talking about my online English writing course for college students
Marvyn Anthony
01:02:55
@Nancy, I can make sure your question is seen at the end. Did you have a specific question pertaining to grades 1-4?
Sylvia Quigley
01:03:29
I teach 8 week accelerated course in blended modality. Connections become so critical. I have a small assignmtn "getting to know me" and include a silly part like what is your favorite candy bar.
Helaine Marshall
01:03:36
Online learning is not “cold”; it’s “warm” right?
Shelly Vohra
01:03:47
I do @Nancy
Peter Hessling

@Peter, I absolutely agree. I'm reading Small Teaching Online now. It's really great with actionable tips. https://teachinginhighered.com/podcast/small-teaching-online/
Helaine Marshall
01:04:59
@ Jenn - thank you so much for your explanations and examples of the Community of Inquiry Model - great to hear!
Peter Hessling
01:05:45
Thanks for the podcast link, Candice!
Sylvia Quigley

@Juli thanks! @Evveryone Shana Tova to all!
Gaby Richard-Harrington
01:08:56
are you all distinguishing between “group work” and real “collaborative work?”
Sylvia Quigley
01:09:18
I explain all students must respond to all other classmates in the discussion questions over the 8 weeks to avoid small groups ignoring others
Adelaide Doyle-Nichols
01:09:56
I love Flipgrid for building community.
C Lauderdale
01:10:13
I am still using Google Meet and I am trying to break them up into small groups
Sylvia Quigley
01:10:31
Flipgrid is great fun! All grade levels! Elem to college
Shelly Vohra
01:11:00
It depends on the district - different up in regions of Canada
Catherine Hines
01:11:05
To C Lauderdale: I have seen moving small groups to a shared Google Doc or Shared Slide deck for conversation and work is effective
Sylvia Quigley
01:11:22
Average Gen z has 10 second attention span. 3 hour Zoom very ineffective teaching
C Lauderdale
01:11:56
@Catherine thank you
Shelly Vohra
01:12:01
No one should be online straight for that long
Judy Winsberg
01:12:18
We have both … synchronous every 20-30 minutes and asynchronous the next 30-40 minutes. Repeat throughout the day.
Peter Hessling
01:12:31
Gaby, that is a really good distinction. Is the assignment truly collaborative? I've found that it helps to demonstrate and give examples of what "collaboration" is. But I've also found that it's a continuum. Sometimes the teams function as disconnected "groups," and other times a real collaborators.
Dana Williams
01:12:32
Our AEA shared this link in the spring to provide guidance on synchronous/asynchronous learning time: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vTBNWMh3CuehVHQfNN0mkxvh5UqwuP0m1ca7D9oXPPFAM9KznvinUoQsc-KB1H63qPstC0RDsiGHnsG/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000&slide=id.p
Shelly Vohra
01:13:46
Yes! There is a difference b/w collaboration and group work
Jennifer Courduff
01:13:51
Thanks Dana!
Catherine Hines
01:14:24
Thanks, Dana. They do terrific stuff at Grant Wood
Jennifer Courduff
01:14:53
UDL roks!
Jennifer Courduff
01:14:59
Rocks :)
rhonda heatherly
01:15:58
I wish our district had guidelines like those - we are online WITH students from 8:30-2:15 except for lunch break...
Jennifer Courduff
01:16:03
That’s so tough!!
Shelly Vohra
01:16:17
That is nuts @rhonda
Marvyn Anthony
01:16:47
Wakelet source:https://wakelet.com/wake/yt5cZjvEOcmLfpFMd9iA6
Sylvia Quigley
01:17:04
much misunderstanding of asynchronous work . And how to meld synchronous and asynchronous effectively
Dana Williams
01:17:14
Rhonda, is the expectation that students are on a video call for the duration of the class? Can it be synchronous at the beginning & end, but confer/asynchronous learning during the “class period?”
Shelly Vohra
01:17:37
Many districts don’t have a deep understanding of VL - you can’t simply take FTF and transfer it online!
Fan Chen
01:18:14
MS Teams is rolling out the breakout rooms soon. Yeah! You can also create private channels for breakout rooms for now.
Sylvia Quigley
01:18:30
Long video calls also cause bandwith and data plan issues!
Shelly Vohra
01:18:41
Major digital equity issues!
Shelly Vohra
01:19:04
Major digital equity issues!
Kara McFarlin
01:19:11
Could someone please put the link for Torrey’s digital choice board in the chat?
Candice Chambers
01:19:21
Torrey's Choice Board was really helpful for me this summer as I was preparing to train faculty at my institution.
Shelly Vohra
01:19:22
And many districts don’t have a deep understanding of VL - you can’t simply take FTF and transfer it online!
Jennifer Courduff
01:19:42
Torrey is amazing
Kara McFarlin
01:20:01
Nevermind, found it on the Wakelet
Juli Ross-Kleinmann
01:20:19
Michele Eaton also has a great explanation of Choice Boards
Gaby Richard-Harrington
01:20:29
I am finding that there are more choices. Students aren’t distracted by what other students are doing/using. They are getting ideas from each other when they see what got handed in/ shared for peer feedback.
Dr. Susan Poyo

01:20:40
Different modalities of choice boards
Catherine Hines
01:20:41
Agree with the comments on Torrey. I just found her stuff the past month or so and it’s great stuff.
Shelly Vohra
01:20:48
Sorry when creating them
Christie Burns
01:21:35
within Choice boards - you can also have lines - choose one from top row; everyone does activity in 2ns row and then choose any from 3rd row
Candice Chambers
01:21:36
https://torreytrust.com/projects/
Peter Hessling
01:22:26
When you have a lot of students and stuff to grade, it can be a problem for grading. BUT! Check out the Wakelet. I've found that Single-point rubrics have made a big difference for me and my students.
Gaby Richard-Harrington
01:22:27
get them to write out the script after the video for the first few and the script before the video for then next one or two. When they see that the video is better (hopefully) with script first - that is good feedback and reflection -
Cyndy Harrison
01:23:23
I like that break idea!!!
Gaby Richard-Harrington
01:23:46
Torrey has a new voting board!
