Using technology in the auto tech classroom - work smarter not harder part 3.
Continued from last month...
6. Quizlet.com - Quizlet is a free website where you can use already prepared materials or create your own study tools, quizzes, and other resources. You can log in using your Google or FB account.
I currently have all of the key terms and supplemental terms from the AMLR book put into Quizlet. I am currently
imputing the key terms for each chapter of Automotive Technology: A Systems Approach 6e.
Sign in to Quizlet and search for RobThompson-Auto to access the key terms. There is no cost to sign up or use the materials there or to create your own materials.
The screen shots on the right show examples of how Quizlet can be used to help with teaching vocab.
Additional resources are available for those who upgrade to a paid account for $25 per year.
7. Hunter Remote Touch app - if you have a newer model Hunter Hawk Eye aligner, Hunter has a remote for iOS devices that allows you to control the aligner and use your device as a remote screen. Very handy when working under the back of a vehicle.
8. Student generated videos - we've had students make their own safety videos, training videos, and videos to demonstrate a skill. Given some parameters, most of the time these videos are well done and worth sharing.
YouTube searching will reveal many student videos from auto programs all over the country, many of which are very good.
Next month, a really great tool from TED. Using the Ed.Ted.Com online lessons.
More to come next month.
