Thanksgiving Thinglink

 

Hello,

 

I love using new types of technology to engage students such as the Thanksgiving Thinglink above, Powtoons or Memes.  But now I need new freebies.  Can anyone help me out?

 

Thanks,

Re: Thanksgiving Thinglink - Looking for New Free Technol...

There are several technology tools that can be used in the classroom to boost student enagagement:

 

1. Padlet: great tool for collaborative activities, inside and outside class, thus increasing student engagement. It's free and very easy to use. https://padlet.com/ 

2. Trello: Collaborative tool mainly but can be used to engage students by creating suitable activities. Also free. https://trello.com/

3. Top Hat: https://tophat.com/https://tophat.com/. Not free, but a goo deal can be negotiated for large classes. A colleague of mine uses it for a large class of 120 students and have seen very significant improvement in student engagement, their attendance and also performance.

 

Hope these help.
