ISTE is a conference like no other. It will inspire you, motivate you, energize you, and refresh your practice, but it can also be quite daunting. As someone who has attended five of these in the last 10 years, I have learned a few tricks to make the experience a bit easier.
Our friend and Hapara Champion Trainer Julian Daher continues to share his expertise on Deep Learning in the latest video in our Teaching with Technology series. This week, Julian discusses one of his favorite practices - co-creating success criteria with learners.
In this first deep dive video, Julian shares how Deep Learning pedagogies have shifted the way he teaches French reading comprehension. He also explains how digital tools like Hapara Workspace and Google Read and Write make these shifts possible.
Hapara and Google Classroom are a great pair. Mike de Leon, a big Hapara Workspace user and put together a great video for us about how to use Google Classroom with Workspace to better meet learners' needs.
We're back with our next Teaching with Technology video with Julian Daher! This week, Julian gives us an intro to Deep Learning and what it looks like in the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
In a digital classroom, it is true that, if not used intentionally, technology can add a cold and disconnecting element to our classrooms. However, it also possible for technology to be used in ways that add value to our relationships and bring teachers and students closer to together.
We're back with the second video in our Teaching with Technology series! This week, Hapara Champion Trainer and OCSB educator Julian Daher lets us in on how he incorporates tech tools into his French as a second language immersion classes.
My vision for my classroom is to foster an environment where students are comfortable making mistakes and sharing work with peers. The question then becomes, how do I do this? How do I shift from researching and implementing effective feedback strategies to using them to transform my classroom?
We are excited to announce a new video series with Hapara Champion Trainer Julian Daher from the Ottawa Catholic School Board on teaching with technology. Julian will be sharing short videos with us every week to show what teaching with technology looks like in his classroom, and how he uses both online and offline tools and methods to support learners.
Google Classroom is a free resource that helps educators manage learners working in the cloud. Hāpara is a suite of instructional management tools that offers visibility into learners' work and insight into their browsing, while providing tools for differentiation and personalization. Together, they power a streamlined digital classroom that puts learners first.
In essence, playlists give students choice over when, how and what they do to reach an academic objective. In a traditional lesson, students have two choices: follow the teacher’s directions verbatim, or choose to misbehave. That’s not much of a choice at all.
So what is it about Flipgrid and HyperDocs that educators find so appealing? I think the draw is that they can be used to empower students by providing them with voice and choice in the classroom which, in turn, leads to increased engagement.
One of the many benefits of technology is that it helps us with all of these aspects of learner feedback. Providing feedback becomes even easier when Hapara is added to the mix!
We know how important feedback is to help guide student learning, but why does feedback seem to be incredibly impactful sometimes, but make no significant difference other times?
Providing quick and meaningful formative feedback is one of the most important strategies teachers can leverage to propel student learning.
Thank you to everyone who participated, but because this is a contest, there can only be one winner! And that winner is….

If you’re an AVID school that’s gone or is going 1:1 and is using Hapara and Google Suite for Education, check out this brief tutorial I created on how you can create eBinders at your school!
We’re in a changing world. Kids are privy to technology as soon as their fine motor skills are well enough developed to “tap” an app on a tablet or iPad. As educators, it is our duty to leverage digital skills in a manner that supports student success and confidence.
