I’m a high school English teacher, so I’m always looking for ways to help my students develop their reading skills. With the push for STEM 4 Cs, I’ve had a difficult time figuring out how I can make reading (which is a very individual skill) into a more collaborative one. That’s where Edji comes in.
When I’m trying to teach my students how to use any kind of ed tech, I inevitably have to put together some kind of tutorial to walk them through the process. I spent a lot of time taking screenshots, typing instructions, and organizing it into an easy-to-follow tutorial. It took a long time.
There are a lot of options out there to get instant student feedback. Mentimeter.com is a new one that I’ve recently come across. Mentimeter is an online presentation tool that allows you to get immediate feedback from students.
PeerGrade is an online peer revision tool. Here are my thoughts on it.
