Have a computer or an iPad? Want to simplify your conferencing? If you answered yes to either of these, keep reading.
I'm a teacher who will admit that keeping tracks of 22 students' paperwork can be difficult at times. For me, I knew that technology would be the easiest way to keep track of everything would be for it to be digitally.
LIke most schools, we utilize GoogleDocs to collaborate among our grade levels. It is an easy way to have people view and collaborate on documents.
A similar form was shared with me for writing and I got inspired to created one that was geared towards primary grades and then created a new form for writing.
To the left, is one of my two forms that I use to keep track of conferences with my students. This is the "live form" that I use to type on my iPad, but you can also type it on your computer. Whenever you submit the form, it is timestamped so that you can keep track of exactly when you met with your student.
Whenever you need to pull all of your conference notes, simply complete a sort on the column, and you can easily find all your notes on certain students.
By using the "find" feature, you can search for common goals for students to create RTI or small groups to address certain skills.
If you would like me to share the form to you to use, send me an email and I would be happy to share. Once it is shared with you, simply go to "File" and then "Make a Copy" to start digitally conferencing with your students.
