This is a great screen tutorial from Jesse Spevack a fellow Google Certified Teacher (GCT).  I must say that the private GCT community is one of the most active, thriving communities in which I participate.  It is an incredible network of teachers and part of what we do is share things (both Google and non google) with one another!

Hi Vicki,

Being interested in teaching using new web technology, I thought you might like to check out blist

blist is a free, online database application that looks a lot like a spreadsheet – only easier, more visual, and more powerful. We are finding a lot of interest from teachers in using blist in two distinct ways.

First, blist is great for classroom administration – being a database, you can start with one row per student, add yearbook photo in one column, upload homework as a Word document, or other file in another column, and then create a whole table within a cell for each student to keep track of grades for each student on each assignment in each class.

Second and more subtly, some teachers are using blist to teach computer and database concepts to students in a visual and intuitive way. For instance, the idea of a database itself as a collection of two-dimensional tables connected together in specific ways can be hard to conceptualize, but is easy to show using blist’s table within a cell feature.

You can find blist here:

Here is one review of blist from TeachersFirst.com :

Hi Vicki,
I am an Elementary ELL teacher and my school is implementing a new test, which provides a lot of information about students. I am very excited to use the test results to differentiate instruction. Therefore,
I’ve been trying to find ways to collect and student’s data. After reading your article, I think blist would be very good to use for this purpose.
Thanks for your great ideas.

Hello Vicki,

I have read most of your articles and I was wondering if you have some ideas on differentiate instruction for English Language Learners including language objectives.

Thanks in advance for your ideas,
