Professional Learning Summary 2 Teacher Induction Technology Seminar at FCSS


This professional learning activity was focused on introducing me and other individuals

who are completing their induction program to the different technology tools that are available

in the field of education that can aide our students. There were two main presenters for this

training, including Jeran Ott, who was a professor at Fresno State who taught the CI 100

course (credential program prerequisite). The description provided when registering included;

discussing the new technology standards, how to utilize research sites, how to manage Google

search engines, and miscellaneous programs that are available through the Fresno County

Superintendent of Schools office. This training covered all of those topics and more. Most of

which were appropriate for my students and for me to use within my classroom. There was a

lot of hands on opportunities to practice using the programs and technology that was discussed

during this training.

Important Learning Points

Slido - ask a question, group members can respond with thumbs up and thumbs down (most important things to most will be pushed to the top).

Twitter- Dr. Ott recommends using twitter w/ or w/out an account. You can get a lot

of information anonymously, but students and you can benefit from others ideas. It’s a good platform that can benefit you, but can also be overwhelming.

Tumblebooks- Will read aloud, lights up words in red and blue to help students with tracking and reading pace.

My FCOE Portal- Includes a variety of resources including Discovery Education and Tumlebooks. Will have temp until December 2019.

Seesaw- Uploaded students with Google Classroom. Also called the learning journal.

Do Ink- Green screen program to record on an Ipad. (I need 3 Ipads and 1 green screen to utilize in my classroom properly).

Custom Search Engine- Create a customizable search engine to make searching on google more specific and efficient to the task the students are asked to complete.

Google Earth- Great 3D way to introduce students to different places in the world.

Table of Activities

How to use master slides and completed own master slides project with a selected book, 50 Below Zero.




10:30 - 11:20 am

My FCOE portal discussion about resources and opportunities within it. State resources were also discussed within this portion of the training. This portion of the training included Discovery Education and was where the AEIOU strategy was discussed.

11:20 - 11:50 am

Tumblebooks program discussed and an example of its potential uses were demonstrated. Epic! was discussed as an alternative program to use due to the cost to Tumblebooks.

11:50am -

Lunch on our own. I visited the Kids Cafe.

12:50 pm

12:50-1:45 pm

Utilized a green screen and the Do Ink program to create our own narration and alternate ending of a story from Tumblebooks.

1:45 - 2:20 pm

Learned and used the program Seesaw. Uploaded my google classroom so that my students had access. Great way to get student feedback and engagement.

2:20 - 2:35 pm

Discussed Google Earth, used it to find several different locations.

2:35-2:50 pm

Created a customized google search engine related to a California Missions project my students will be doing.

2:50 - 3:00 pm

Completed a survey for induction and for the tech team (two in total).

Reflection Something that I implemented in my classroom following this training was the AEIOU

strategy that was taught. It was a great way for my students to reflect upon their learning and

allow me to gauge it when I taught a Halloween themed science lesson through Discovery

Education. I utilized the “Go Batty” video on the Magic School Bus channel and had my

students use the AEIOU pdf that was available through Discovery Education to demonstrate

their understanding of the video. As needed I had several accommodations, such as a scribe

available to my students as stated in their IEP. Based upon the feedback from this activity, I

checked for understanding. I discovered that only half way through the video only 6 of my 9

students understood what echolocation really was, most had questions (the letter U on the

activity) about how bats talked to one another. If I would not have used a tool such as the

AEIOU strategy I would not have known that I needed to restart the echolocation segment of

the video over for better comprehension.

Due to the amount of valuable information that was provided during this training I was not

able to implement all of the tools in my classroom yet. I look forward to implementing the

master slides feature on Google slides in order to create more interactive lessons for my

students. During the training, that tool gave me the ability to better manipulate and scaffold

activities using the same base, which saved me time. Based upon the examples I saw during

the training I also believe the lessons can be very effective for the entire class based upon the

multiple options you have with that tool.

This training contributed to progress towards my professional growth goal by providing me

with tools that help me better check for understanding while keeping my students engaged

through technology. There were several great tools shared that I have the ability to implement

within my classroom.
