Voxer Enables Virtual Collaboration

A low bandwidth solution connects remote students for inter-classroom discussion

Voxer is an application I use in my classroom to incorporate verbal collaboration. Voxer is a walkie-talkie type app where teachers can assign students to groups, pose questions, and have students verbally discuss the questions with a virtual audience. When Voxer is being used by students, they are switching between verbal and written communication. Most groups will verbally respond to questions and other students' will type their answers. Voxer is a great application for connecting students virtually with students their own age with limited bandwidth use.

This link is to a blog post I wrote on Teachability on 3 ways to digitally innovate in the blended classroom. Within the post, I address the importance of virtual collaboration via Voxer. The post also gives a brief overview of the project.

This is a link to a Vox I recorded at the beginning of the school year surrounding behavior in my class. As you can hear, Voxer isn't just for virtually collaborating. It can be used as a great reflective tool for teachers too.

Learning Apps
QR Codes for Labs
A low bandwidth solution connects remote students for inter-classroom discussion

QR codes are simple and easy to make codes that allow classroom resources, like videos, websites, and assignments to be accessed with little effort. These codes can be made easily using the Chrome extension goo.gl URL shortener or a website like qrstuff.com. They can be displayed on an interactive whiteboard, printed on an assignment, or printed and taped to a wall at a station or on a lab desk. QR codes take away the barrier of typing in long URLs or shortened website links, and get students to resources quickly.  

 
Learning Apps
Digital Distribution (Doctopus)
A low bandwidth solution connects remote students for inter-classroom discussion

Doctopus is a widget you can use in Google to distribute documents. I use Doctopus because it's the only tool that I know of that will allow me to distribute a copy of a document to each student in view only mode (Google Classroom at this point only allows for edit only mode). I use Doctopus to distribute the Quest Contracts to students so that each student has access to the document (please see my "Model Overview" to learn about Quest Contracts). I have viewing and editing privileges, whereas each student only has viewing privileges. This widget allows me to update my students' Quest Contracts on my iPad after they have mastered an activity. The student can then go into the same document and view what they have completed and what they still need to complete. Doctopus also works with Google Classroom to allow me to important Google Classroom rosters. 

 
Small-Group Instruction
Guided Microscope Investigations
A low bandwidth solution connects remote students for inter-classroom discussion

Guided Microscope Investigations are investigations done by two students. The student pairings are usually chosen by the students or made by me as a result of the students’ progress on their current level. During these investigations, students examine slides they've created during labs. They work as a team to complete a task related to the content being covered in class. Students often record what they see in the microscope using Educreations, an app on the iPad. As a result of having a blended classroom where students progress in a self-paced way, I’m able to provide this one-on-one guided instruction without having to worry about what the rest of the class is or should be doing.
