Something to think about…
Make An Engaging Lesson That Can Take Place When a Sub is in Your Class - Google Tour Builder is an easy tool that allows you to put pins on a map, then add video, images and text to go with each location. User-friendly and quick to figure out, this tool is great for students! But, may be even better for teachers! One of our HS History teachers, Sharon Romero, used it to create a lesson for a day she would be out of class. She set up 6 stops on the map with each having text and a video. While the sub is there, the students will go into her Google Tour, watch each of the location’s videos, take notes and study for a quiz the next day. Genius! +Google for Education
