Downloading Explain Everything Reading Activities

How to support independent learning using a Google Site
Independent downloading

My class has been testing my format for downloading reading follow up tasks straight from the class site. I uploaded the Explain Everything projects (.xpl) into my weekly planning in Google Sheets. The students were then able to independently access and download their group task straight into the Explain Everything App. 

 

Overall the design is successful: easy to use for the students and easy to manage for the teacher.

Some technical issues that I have encountered so far:
  • internet unreliable
  • Google Drive requesting sign in
  • xpl permissions playing up
  • not enough reading books for each group
So... it pays to have a back up plan!
