I wanted to offer two ideas that tie in to your bell ringer tips in Episode 43. Now that my school is 1:1, I have my students do warm-ups in an interactive journal using Google Slides. It used to take me forever to grade their paper journals and I always dreaded it...until this year. I now collect the online "journals" once a quarter and I use the Doctopus add-on with a Goobric to grade them. This has saved me a lot of time AND increased how much feedback I'm able to give them. Win win! Also, I've used their bell-ringer/warm-up journals to review vocabulary words. I randomly assigned students a vocabulary word and asked them to find an image that show the words meaning. Next, students put their slides in presentation mode, then do a gallery walk. As they view each other's work, they write down the vocabulary word they think is being depicted on a sticky note next to each laptop. When students return to their seat, they'll know whether their picture sufficiently showed their assigned word's meaning based on their peer's anonymous feedback. Plus, it gets them up and moving. :)
