My blog is not my primary online destination lately.Why so busy? Well, I am a teacher, and teachers love to learn.
I am back in school for my last degree, my Ed.D. in Instructional Technology.
I want to tell my fellow graduate school educators about some things I have discovered/rediscovered and must share.
Check these out, knowing some are affiliate links, and that I would love your critique and feedback on those which you are using!
Purchases which are Worth It:
I am not an English/Language Arts teacher. So I needed something to help me with writing. I benefitted from the free version of Grammarly already, so when they offered a special this spring, I jumped at the paid version of Grammarly.
When I found out my next graduate program required APA formatting I knew I needed some extra help. I remembered that many media specialists I knew were fans of EasyBib. It is working out even better than just helping me create APA formatted references; the projects help me organize my references by course/topic.
When I found myself wondering what a particular format looked which that my professor kept referring to, I took to the Internet for answers. I kept coming across references to CourseHero, and when I took a look, I opened an account right away. CourseHero is a crowdsourced site where you share by an institutions course study guides, aids, or notes, project, formats, etc. I think I paid for my first item, but you can earn looking at documents by uploading your documents; I am looking forward to contributing back to the materials available here.
I’ve Learned my way around Canvas LMS – as a Student
I am a Canvas Admin at my day job. So I am pumped to get the student perspective in this degree!
First thing I noted in the school How To videos is they had not turned off the color overlay yet, I did that first thing. When I re-watched my video I realized I had not turned off the “standard” courses yet by starring my current courses. Time for all of us to visit the Canvas Guides on these topics!
My go-to Freemium Accounts:
Canva is beautiful. And it can easily make your ideas attractive too.
If you are in school, you should share your favorite products.
Please post your best bets in the comments below or review those I have recommended!
