  • Turning the testing model on its headBy making the whole process more interactive, you put students in greater control of their learning, so they're more invested. Rather than top-down, it's more back-and-forth. It's more about learning for the sake of learning, not just for the sake of the grade. Getting the right answer is fun and rewarding; making mistakes is part of the learning process – less punitive, more forgiving, more encouraging.

    I am in the corporate world, and I take a lot of "boring" exams. I read a book, am expected to memorize everything in it to get a certification, there is no actual "application" or "hands on experience" required, just memorization. I am bookmarking this for future reference, because I think even at the adult level, application, and having fun while learning is absolutely key for them to actually retain what they are learning!

    I would create a formative quiz, similar to an exit slip to have students try at home, or from their phones to be sure they meet the daily learning target.  I want to try having students record their lab summaries, along with at least one lab trial to post to a class website as a way to review previous labs.

      For summary activities, I sometimes give students the option to create their own comic strip. Some students choose to pick a different activity because they do not think they are an artist. This would help make everyone feel that they could create their own comic strip summary!

      All these adds might be a bit distracting for students.

      I am a very visual person, and I had a hard time navigating the page with all of the distracting elements. Students so often like to be able to master something so quickly that if they can't, they may choose to not use this.

      This is a great way to integrate differentiation into the classroom, especially for a tiered assignment. If a student struggles to comprehend plot summary, he or she can use this to demonstrate what he/she understood from the text or there could be additional elements added to up the difficulty level.

    This tool is excellent for digital storytelling and other activities. Using Thornburg's metaphors (see David D. Thornburg: Campfires in Cyberspace: Primordial Metaphors for Learning in the 21st Century (Original text 2001)) this tool has a use around the metaphorical campfire as a storytelling tool, around the watering hole as a casual discussion on current events, and in the cave as a reflective tool.

    This seemed a possibility for those of us who are storytellers. It's a way to incorporate our stories into online design. Although the spontaneity of the storytelling may be missing, the story itself doesn't have to be.

    I used Glogster with my middle schoolers this year and they loved it! I was surprised at how much time and effort they put into their glogs. Since I had over 150 students, I had them log in and create glogs under my name which allowed me to view and edit their work.
