So far this year, students have submitted homework electronically and in paper format. Now that most children have an iPad, I wanted to ensure they all submit their work in one format, while still allowing differentiation. I decided I need to monitor homework more closely, so thought I would use Google Classroom to do so. This allows me to monitor homework in one stream, as well as give feedback to students.
Here are some documents I created for parents, to assist in the process of using these apps for homework submission. All homework is compiled in Book Creator, with voice instructions and follows up on concepts learnt from the prior week to offer consolidation practice. Students collate their work by taking photos, screen-shotting or typing in each task.

Old fashioned teaching and learning has a time and place still in the classroom. However, our students are growing up in a world immersed in technology. Not only do we need to provide them with skills to cope in this growing tech-filled environment, but we can also enhance their ability to learn content through creative, digital formats.
