Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Elective Subjects

WeVideo is an online video editor that students and teachers can use to capture, create, view and share movies. It is a good alternative to iMovie for non-mac devices and access from shared devices in general.

This mini unit is created to be used in a blended learning environment.  Much of the online information will be posted to my classroom blog for students to access.  I have included access here to the Blind Kahoot and the PlayPosit.

Office Lens allows the user to take a picture of a photo, document, or whiteboard. Then, the image is processed so that text can be seen clearly and can easily be exported into a OneNote or many other Microsoft Applications (OneDrive, PowerPoint, Outlook, Word), saved as a PDF or image or sent in an email.

Students in French 3/4 had a difficult test coming up. In an effort to review the grammar in a new and different way, I applied for an educational license with the scavenger hunt app, Goose Chase. Students downloaded the app, got into teams electronically and I started the game at my computer. Students were led by clues to locations around the school where I had placed signs.
