Can you DIG IT AL(L)?
December 2nd Faculty Meeting
Curriculet is an interactive teaching tool that embeds multimedia, annotation, and formative assessment directly into a pre-selected or manually uploaded text! Import a poem, short story, or excerpt from a novel. Afterwards, create open-ended or text-dependent questions that can be "tagged" for grade-specific standards. Upon student completion, Cirriculet will record on task time, correct and incorrect answers, and progress towards individualized goals. This can be used with excerpts from novels from the website, or documents uploaded by the teacher. Enjoy!
Piktochart is a free infographic tool that students can use to create brochures, flyers or posters, to which they can add various multi-media elements and select different presentation modes. For this assignment, students conducted a mini-research project on a historical element named in Billy Joel’s song, “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” analyzed the significance of the event, idea, innovation, or individual, and used Piktochart to share their information and analyses in a grade-wide gallery walk. Students incorporated vital technology skills they will need for their future in creative and engaging ways while building their skills in research and writing.
