Today we played with all kinds of tools that could be used to increase the rigor of assignments. Here’s a list, but please add to it by responding to this post!
A video annotation tool that could be used in a flipped classroom scenario or for student responses/discussion to a video.
Share a URL with students, and they can annotate websites with a variety of colors and styles, add sticky notes, categorize annotations, share with others via email, etc.
Have students create interactive presentations that are more like interactive apps.
Have students create a visual timeline with geographical connections using this app and Google Earth.
Have students create a multimedia timeline on a topic.
This is a iPad app students can use to create a quick narrated presentation using visuals and/or handwriting.
Explain Everything http://explaineverything.com/
This app is much the same as EduCreations but has more options.
Have students create a presentation with an avatar as an actor.
Create speaking avatars in English or other languages.
Create blended learning lessons so easily! You can also add assessments. So great for blending face-to-face with out-of-class activities.
Today’s Meet https://todaysmeet.com/
This is probably the easiest backchannel tool there is. You could make a backchannel available as you are lecturing. What else might you use this for?
This is a game-based classroom response system for students to engage in on any device.
A very useful tool to create a variety of online assessments.
Infuse Learning http://www.infuselearning.com/
Yet another useful tool for assessing student learning.
