Ogment is a lesson builder and management tool for teachers. It allows teachers to take resources from the internet such as articles, images, and videos and incorporate them into their classroom curriculum via a lesson builder template tool. Teachers can browse a library of colleague-created lessons and assign lessons and assessments to students. Ogment is available for purchase by districts at a per student user rate.
Teachers start using Ogment by downloading the browser plugin, creating a profile and logging in. Once they have created an account, teachers browse the internet for articles, videos, and images and begin ‘clipping’ them into the lesson builder tool. To ‘clip’ an article, video, or image, teachers select the green ogment icon on their browser’s menu bar and then appropriately select ‘clip video, clip images,’ or ‘clip article’ depending on media of the resource. Ogment then opens a lesson builder window. Teachers follow prompts to enter in a title and all pertinent lesson information such as standards and reading level. After filling in all the necessary information, teachers follow prompts to edit and save their lesson to their district’s library according to grade level, subject, duration, and standards covered.
Teachers have the option to upload previously organized lessons and other media files from their computer. They can also browse their district’s lesson library by entering in a lesson name, desired standard to be covered, reading level, key words, grade, or subject.
The lesson builder tool also allows teachers to create end of lesson assessments. Teachers use assessment builder tool to select a question type and enter in content. They then assign lessons and assessments to students. From their dashboard, teachers can monitor student progress and performance on the assessments and individual questions.
Ogment costs $10.00 per student, annually.
