Wizer for Blended Worksheets

Think of Wizer Worksheets as digital hyperdocs or online blended worksheets and you will provide a new way to assign students an assignment using a learning management system.

Create engaging, interactive worksheets that includes video, audio, images and a variety of question types that includes technology enhanced items (TEI). Audio features allow you to record your voice for differentiation.  Easily assign to students in any learning management system like Schoology, Google Classroom, or Edmodo.  You can also share your activity by embedding or providing a link or PIN.

Don’t have time to create your own Wizer?  Explore the collection of free resources created by other educators.  Use as-is or copy and edit them to suit your needs.

The free-forever Wizer Lite account gives you the worksheet creator, ability to assign worksheets via URL or LMS, access to thousands of worksheets in the collection, and one classroom roster.

The Moon Phases worksheet below is something I created on the fly in 30-40 minutes. Give it try.  It’s only a sampling of what you get with Wizer.

PPT’s Taken A Step Further

A randomized PowerPoint is a handy activity for qballrecall and drill.
It involves all students in the class having to be on their toes not knowing when they will be called upon or what material will be presented. Add a Qball to the equation and you’ve got real engagement!

Examples of activities – reading clocks, counting money, math facts, math equations, vocabulary, roman numerals, foreign language, ESL, periodic table, and so on.

The video below demonstrates the activity, shows the code running in the background, explains the developer tool, and hones in on the one area of code that needs modified with each activity created.

If you would like a copy of an activity, contact me and I will send you one that you can make your own.

QuiverVision – 3D Augmented Reality

Using Quiver in the classroom is as easy as coloring pages and having them brought to life in the way your student creatively colored the page.

Coloring is a fine motor skill we develop at an early age. Coloring allows us to be creative in our expression and acts as a calming agent in reducing stress. What Quiver does using 3D augmented reality is bring those colored images to life.

Quiver offers free activities but also provides an educational theme with narrations, facts, and quizzes.
