I took my new knowledge related to shortcut usage and shared it with my students. This week, we've been creating briefs for our debate class. For a brief, you must have direct quotes, usually about a paragraph in length. The headings on a brief also need to be bolded for quick identification.
We had a quick mini-lesson at the start of the hour before we headed to the computer lab where I shared a number of shortcuts with students. I had the opportunity to see students take advantage of the ctrl+ C, ctrl +V, ctrl + P and ctrl + B and shortcuts as they worked.
For me, the process of quiz -->quiz results -->tutorials-->practice skills worked moderately well. I appreciated the quiz and results, but I did not like the way that the quiz was marked correct or incorrect. For some reason, it said that using a Mac and iPad was incorrect. Also, even if you only had partial knowledge of the subject, it was marked as incorrect. I did review the necessary tutorials, but these topics aren't always the easiest to model with students, particularly with high school students who already have these skills. Many students already knew the shortcuts I showed, but I do hope it helped a few students!
