Look no further when training your staff or teaching your students to use a new technology tool (either over video chat or in person in the classroom). These technology tool button cards are a GAME CHANGERS! I have created them for some Learning Management Systems, Video Conferencing tools and now starting on some of my favorite tech tools like Pear Deck! And I won’t stop there! I have been hard at work creating them for all the tech tools I love! Would you like to see one made? Send me a message on IG @FairWindsTeaching or email me at Captain@FairWindsTeaching.com, I would love to create them for you!

…Because Zoom. This video tool has soooo much to offer, but that can be overwhelming too. So many buttons to choose from, help yourself and your students out!

If you have ever used Schoology… you know how I feel. It is NOT easy! It is not easy to train your staff, it is not easy to teach you students and even harder to show your parents. I will be adding buttons to this one until I’m blue in the face! I promise to continue to update as soon as new features come out. Grab these here!

I spent the summer teaching and training at a local University. It was my first time ever teaching a graduate level course at an University and I LOVED every second of it. I was also hired by the Center of Instructional Design and Delivery to train over 60 faculty at the college on their LMS Canvas. These cards helped with every single 1:1 appointment. I met through video conference with each of the 60 faculty one on one and used these cards to guide them through their course and trained them how to design clean and orderly content for their students online. These cards are NOT just for students, they are for anyone needing help with a new digital tool. Grab them here!

Pear Deck was the first tech tool I had to make buttons are; it is my favorite distance learning tool for sure! I love the engagement and interactive the students have with it and the accountability piece for the teacher. There are a lot of new buttons for students to get used to so this tool is great while you are online trying to do both at the same time. Grab these buttons here!
