GAFE & Tour Builder

At the onset of the school summer break I had the opportunity to train teachers from Army Public School (APS) Golconda. There was about 40+ teachers who attended my session on the use of Google Apps for Education and Tour Builder. I feel privileged to facilitate technology trainings to fellow educators and to learn from them as well. 

APS cater to the wards of Army Personnel of Artillery Centre . A KG School was started in July 1976 and then upgraded to Army Primary School, Ramdevgudain June 1982. On 1st April 2006 Army Primary School, Ramdevguda was converted to Army School, Golconda under the aegis of AWES. 

ABCYA Animate and BBC Typing

Tech Update#9 

ABCYA Animate

Early childhood and lower elementary students love storytelling in digital format! They used their imaginations to create and animate characters of their stories thru ABCYA_Animate. Some of them showed how sea creatures were dying because of water pollution such as oil spill and garbage on the ocean. Some students animated different transports, playground stories and city life. The app is available online and also in iPad. We have purchased the app in our iPad minis so that it is more accessible to our students. Saving their animations was also made easy with one-press of an icon. To find out more of ABCYA Animate you may click on the link to watch the tutorial video: Animation_video. Have fun with your digital stories!

BBC Typing

Students used BBC Typing to practice proper keyboarding. Here’s a link to the website if your child wants to practice at home: BBC Typing

 

Duolingo

Tech Update#8 Languages and Technology

Duolingo is a free language-learning platform that includes a language-learning website and app, as well as a digital language proficiency assessment exam.

Some Feedback from Grade 3 Students, International School of Hyderabad:

Duolingo was introduced to me by Mrs. Vera. It is a fun way to learn another language. It motivates you and helps you step-by-step. I know a lot more French now than I did. I hope many other people can learn from Duolingo. – Zoe Teboho Grobler

The person who introduced Duolingo to me was Mrs. Vera. I like it because you get to learn new languages. – Mary Paston-Bedingfield

Dear Duolingo, I’ve heard about you because my friends work on it. So I decided to also do it. I really liked how fun it is. Maybe everyday I will go to Duolingo website. If I continue to use Duolingo I will know all the languages. – Vanessa Lanxin Lenglart

Duolingo was introduced to me by Zoe. It made me realised that this was kind of like Kahoot! but it makes you learn a different language. I like it because you can learn a different language in a fun way. -Mia Kaur Samra

To access Duolingo you may visit the website: www.duolingo.com or download the app from your smart phones and tablets:

Last year I was a participant of Google for Education Summits. I went to Bangkok in January 2015 and in Kuala Lumpur on May. This year I am privileged to be invited as one of the Summit speakers. I am excited and grateful for the opportunity. To God be the glory.
