Peergrade is a free online platform to facilitate peer assessment sessions with students.
You create an assignment
You create an assignment, specify your evaluation criteria and open the assignment for hand-in.
Students hand in their work
Your students hand in their work which can be anything from Word documents to Youtube videos.
Hand-ins are distributed
We automatically distribute the hand-ins between the students, ensuring that everyone will get feedback.
Students evaluate reports
The students evaluate the hand-ins assigned to them using the evaluation rubric.
Students receive feedback
When the peer-evaluation process is over, the students receive all the feedback given to their report.
You get the complete overview
As a teacher you get the complete overview of how good the hand-ins are and what feedback was given.
Teachers, professors, trainers, or anyone who conducts a class of any kind can use TeachBack to get feedback from students on any class, the class they just taught, the latest week of classes, or for the entire semester. Free for download on iOS or Android for both students and teachers at any level, TeachBack gathers student feedback about their educators' effectiveness through a variety of pre-made surveys.
Now you can also create your own polls for students using the five-star response system, plus space for individual comments. Content based questions can be created that use the system as well as qualitative poll questions on students' response to instruction, materials, activities and more.
The app provides a simple user experience that produces this feedback in real-time. When you use TeachBack with your students, you can expect to gain insight that will allow you to improve your lectures, lessons, and classroom experience.
Using #BookSnaps with Students!
Step 1: Download Snapchat from the App Store
Step 2: Add your book study pals by clicking the little ghost and “Add Friends by Username.”
Step 3: Begin documenting your reflections as you read
To create #BookSnaps watch this quick little how-to video. You will be guided to navigate the features of Snapchat, create adorable visuals and upload the images to your Snap Story and other social media outlets so we might visibly see what you’re thinking.
Build a Snapchat Story to retell a literary work from the perspective of another character. This example from The Nerdy Teacher uses the story of Huck Finn. Since the story is told from the perspective of Huck, the students were challenged to create a Snapchat Story from the perspective of other characters in the book.
Take your students to Mount Everest, on a flight with the Wright Brothers, or see a chemical reaction happen first hand with Google Expeditions. After experiencing the Pioneer Program in April 2016, I built a kit for my district with grant funds. The resources are listed on the last page of my #TCEA17 Expeditions presentation.
Sleep Cycle / Life Cycle
The Life Cycle app tracks your daily activity. It could feel a little "big brother" to some, but I like to see how my days, weeks, and months shake out. You can set how it tracks the locations you visit and then it remembers the location data.
