Children
For all students, including children under 13, Quizizz offers a limited feature set and web site experience. We do not require students to submit their name or contact information. The only information we collect from students is a temporary nickname. The website also does not allow any type of direct communication to or between the student participants.

Teachers create an account through rvschools and create their own quizzes using the tools provided or use the ones created by other teachers. Teachers can choose to keep their own quizzes private or share them publicly (should keep them private) Quizizzs can be live or set as Homework task.
Students access the teacher’s quizzes with a code and create a nickname. Codes can be shared through google classroom. Students do not need to create accounts and should not.

iOS app is free and works well –students should be cautioned not to share

Accepted with parental approval —

A. Inform Parents
Teachers need to send home the FP-014 (Updated to AF 180-D ) form to get signed by parents prior to asking students to create accounts.

B. Create Accounts
After the teacher has parental approval on form Fp-014 (Updated to AF 180-D ) and parents are aware of the account request that their child will be submitting, the teacher can ask students to create accounts. If the students are under 13 they will also need to be moderated by the teacher using the following course code solution.

link — https://support.tinkercad.com/hc/en-us/articles/226566228-I-m-a-teacher-how-do-I-get-my-students-signed-up-and-approved-

C. Create Code
Teachers: you can now create a code to invite and immediately approve your students under the age of 13. You will then moderate your students’ accounts, and can manage their designs, comments, and passwords.

1. In your Tinkercad account, click Teach at the top menu, and select your classroom role.

2. Create an approval code, good for a week, which you can write on the board or email your students.

3. Ask your students to create Tinkercad accounts.

Students age 13 and over:

enter country, birthdate, email address, and password to create an account
start Tinkering immediately! No moderator required.

Students age 12 and under:

enter country, birthdate, username, password, and parent OR TEACHER email address to create an account.
if they enter a parent’s email, the parent will receive an approval email, and can follow instructions to be added as an additional moderator. Note that if the child uses a Teacher approval code they’ll be fully approved under teacher moderation immediately upon code entry, and the parent’s actions are extra.
If they enter your email, disregard the approval email you receive, as the Teacher code approval process works outside of the standard parent approval. They’ll be fully approved under teacher moderation immediately upon code entry.
exit Lesson to reach the Tinkercad profile page
enter Teacher approval code in the box
start Tinkering immediately after code entry!
4. Moderate your students age 12 and under: click on your user icon in the top-right corner of the page, and select the “Moderate Kids” option from the drop-down menu. You can manage their designs and account settings, and reset lost passwords.

ChatterHigh

Tool Name
ChatterHigh

Tool Description

ChatterHigh provides a daily 9 minute activity that allows students to discover post-secondary and career opportunities, build health & financial literacy and engage them with Provincial Graduation Transition requirements. The site is currently only available for use in BC and Alberta, Canada. The site can be used by Planning 10 or CALM teachers in the classroom or as an assignment as it is PIPA compliant and ad-free, and it is useful for any parent, teacher or student in the school to do. It also is no cost to the school. This engagement is done in the form of a 10 question informative quiz, where students are provided with a link to the exact web page where they can find the answer. Questions in the quiz are randomly assigned. Questions are supplied by appropriate post-secondary institutions and community organizations and are reviewed by ChatterHigh to ensure they align with the BC Planning 10 Prescribed Learning Outcomes A1-6, B2, 3, 5, C1, 7-9 & D2. Teachers can create class reports if they wish to provide incentive for students reaching a certain number of correct answers.

There is a point & reward system for doing the quiz. Points are used to win individual prizes but in particular can be donated to ‘Make Change’. Donating points converts to funds that ChatterHigh donates to Free The Children! (Top donors can be viewed here: http://www.chatterhigh.com/students/top_donors.) Free The Children recognize this effort for students earning their way to We Day. This will be particularly useful for those students who prefer to work quietly in the background. Prizes are donated by various organizations. Prizes won in draws or redeemed for in the ‘Cafeteria’ are sent to the school, often to a teacher or counselor contact, to be passed on to the participant. The gender, grade, first name and last initial requested for in signing up are used to help the school identify the winning participant. Mailing addresses are requested from participants registered as ‘Alumni’ or ‘Friend-of’ only for the purpose of sending their prize, as they may not live in the school region.

A moderated Discussion Forum allows students to ask questions directly to the post-secondary recruiter, without providing personal contact information. Links to all post-secondary institutions are also listed. Post-secondary institutions with a presence in the Forum will have a red ‘ask the expert’ button provided in their questions, to facilitate the connection when a participant wishes to learn more about something they just discovered.

At certain times during the year, schools may be invited to competitions on ChatterHigh. The daily activity remains the same, with schools raising funds through the activity. Some schools have had their philanthropy club or graduation committee lead the school effort, with funds raised used to support their initiatives. I had the pleasure to be the keynote speaker at the graduation ceremony for Spectrum Community School, in Victoria, BC, in 2012 following the incredible efforts of 111 parents, 30 teachers and 505 students to raise $3000 through ChatterHigh towards grad that year. Their effort garnered positive media attention during a challenging year for BC schools.

The site is being prepared as a resource for other Canadian Provinces and also some American States. Our hope is that this not only supports the local awareness of programs and careers for participants, but also an increased awareness of ‘what is out there’ in other regions as well.

Feedback from educators using the site in the classroom is very positive and often highlights the discovery that both student and teacher make of programs and institutions that they were not aware existed, that the site provides equal access to all students (e.g. students with mobility challenges find this easier than a career fair) and that students have actively inquired about the prerequisite courses they must have as a result of something they have discovered. This tool is designed with educators in mind so please provide feedback about your experience! We are always learning too.

Sincerely,

Lee Taal

Tool Description

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. A distinctive feature is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras. Users can also apply digital filters to their images. The maximum duration for Instagram videos is 15 seconds.

Instagram can be used if it is a teacher initiated account and teacher controlled. Students would not be permitted access to the account but a teacher can post the images (student work for example) for them. Students under 13 are not permitted to open accounts based on Instagram’s privacy policy and our own FOIP policies and therefore cannot use the app. Administrators in the school would need to know the password and account name as per the responsible use of social media policy.

The class account should be marked private because by default anyone can view the images that are posted. Parents would then need to create an account so they can “follow” the class account and teachers would have to approve any “follow requests”.

Teachers should not be posting images of students or names in social media but would need to inform parents as they need to set up accounts to follow the class.
