As a part of our 2017-18 Corinth Central School District Goals, we aim to support the utilization of technology in the classroom to facilitate curriculum innovations, collaboration, and communications within the school community. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few teachers that take technology in the classroom to the next level.
Mrs. Tucker’s Third Grade Class uses Kahoot for reading comprehension. Kahoot is a game-based learning platform that allows students to break from traditional classroom activities. Some Kahoot games allow students to answer questions on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson.
Mrs. Lefebre’s Fifth Grade Class uses Chromebooks to provide different instructions for students in the same classroom, based on individual needs. As some students work on Chromebook writing tasks, Mrs. Lefebre works with a small group on reading in the classroom. This helps students prepare for the grades 3-8 NYS Assessments, which will be administered on the computer in May of 2018.
Mr. Waring’s Eighth Grade Art Class uses Chromebooks for image inspiration. His students are using Chromebooks to find image sizes for an Andy Warhol-inspired project. We can’t wait to see their finished products displayed at Corinth Middle School!
Mrs. Mullin used Google Classroom to have foreign language students write a digital postcard about their “Visit to Paris.” Students recorded their voices as they read their postcards aloud.
Mr. Paradis uses Nearpod to work with his Middle School social studies students. Nearpod is an interactive classroom tool for teachers to engage students during lessons. Mr. Paradis is able to synchronize lessons across student devices in the classroom and get real-time feedback and post-session reports on student comprehension.
The Corinth Middle School Grade 8 Team has used Google Classroom for tasks such as Mrs. Peck’s “Problem of the Week” as well as Mrs. Anatriello’s Health Class instructional materials.
Mr. Sorbera shared his instructional math materials in his Class Flow class stream. This allows his Seventh Grade math students to access them at any time.
Mrs. Siano merged her Google Classes to Class Flow and links it in Google Classroom to keep all of her foreign language materials together.
Coach Doody used Google Sheets via Google Classroom to facilitate physical education students logging and monitoring their fitness progress throughout the year.
Mrs. Williams is continuing to explain ways to incorporate technology into both her High School and Middle School classrooms. One new tool she learned about at the New York State Middle School Conference was Quizziz. This formative assessment tool allows students to show their understanding of materials through a digital medium.
These are just a few examples of how our teachers are using technology to better their students’ educational experience here at Corinth Central School District. We look forward to sharing more tech highlights with you in the future!
