Urkund: Today’s Sponsor

Urkund is great as a plagiarism prevention tool and connects with most common Learning Management Systems like Google Classroom, Moodle, and Canvas or as a stand-alone web tool or by email. Students just turn in work. Then, the teacher has the paper analyzed by Urkund.
The Urkund system is highly accurate, cost-effective, and even better, doesn’t sell licenses to students or others. Just teachers can use the power of Urkund. So, if you use another text similarity detection tool, or if you haven’t used one yet, now is the time to start your free trial at www.coolcatteacher.com/detect  and learn more about Urkund today.
 

From the 10-Minute Teacher Vault

This is another one of the all-time-top shows of the 10 Minute Teacher. This show with Tom Loud aired in September 2017 but because iTunes only keeps 297 of the most recent shows, we wanted to take the summer opportunity to share the most inspirational shows from the 10 Minute Teacher podcast. I hope you enjoy!
