As I was creating my codes, I decided to integrate Voice Thread into the
activity as well. My co-worker introduced me to Voice Thread last week. Voice
Thread is an engaging digital learning tool students can use to communicate in
class. Voice Thread is a audio blog that allow students to record text and
audio comments about uploaded images or sites.The basic account is free and
allows you to create up to 5 threads.
I created a few threads for my students to use as Exit Slips for class next week. I have included an example below. In this example, we will a Order of Operations Voice Thread to review Order of Operations with students. The task will be for students to create a mnemonic device to remember the Order of Operations.
A TwitFriend sent me this link with good resources on Voice Threads. Check it out if you are interested in more information.
I am so excited to begin writing in math using micro-blogging digital tools. Our class will be using Twitter to begin writing in Math . I created a class Twitter account and came up with 25 writing prompts for students to write on. I will randomly give each student a different prompt to add variety to our Twitter page. Students will tweet their prompt and other students will reply to their tweets.
Step 1: Create a class Twitter account.
Step 2: Have students create a Twitter account.
Step 3: Assign a time to integrate writing into the classroom.
Step 4: Create prompts for your class to tweet on...Click here for a project with rubric: Twitter Math Prompts.
~Protect your tweets and make them private.
~Have students create an account using at least thier name, so you can recognize them for assessment purposes.
Other ways to use Twitter in Math!
1. Data Project: To collect data to create bar graphs and circle graphs. Students will poll followers on Twitter to collect their data.
2. Polling: Create a twitter poll to collect data for graphing, prior knowledge assessment, etc. http://twtpoll.com/ (Starts at $9 per month).
3. Closures: Students tweet a summary of what they learned in class on a specific topic/concept
4. Vocabulary Reviews: Give each student a different vocabulary word and have them tweet the definition, a picture, etc.
