    • Merely shipping “Does not mean to ship junk. It does not mean ship things that you know to be inferior. It means ship it. Ship it without discussion or drama or anxiety. Because the discussion, and the drama, and the anxiety do not increase the quality . . ." - Godin

  • 2 Truths & 1 Lie
  • Educational Duct Tape Question: How can I build interactivity into my content?
    • “How do you make an interactive lesson?” - making interactivity a focus
    • Classroom setup
    • Questions & Discussion
    • “Whoever is doing the most talking is doing the most learning.”
    • Move small groups into Zoom or Google Meet breakout rooms and have them respond (or record takeaways) in a collaborative space like Google Docs, Padlet, Jamboard, etc.
    • “What needs to be happening is connectivity, connection with my kids, . . . and interactivity.” - Dee
    • Flipgrid
    • Modeling the risk-taking as a teacher, seeking feedback
    • Pear Deck - student-paced is available, embed things like Jamboards or Flipgrid Topics
    • Seize opportunities for students to share ideas and tips with YOU . . . “Power of Reciprocity”
    • Solve in Time - gamified version of design thinking
      • Cards - SOS (ask 3 before me), (1) Problem, (2) Research, (3) Understand, (4) Solve, (5) sharing cards (different cards for different groups)
      • Technology could be included in a variety of ways
      • Could transition into a robust PBL activity
  • Jake's Additional Interactivity Thoughts:
    • Pear Deck--multiple choice, numbers, text, drawing, draggable, website
    • Nearpod--similar options, multiple-choice autograde, new EdPuzzle-like video feature, drag-and-drop fill-in-the-blank activities, matching pairs activities (match a picture to text), memory tests, the Time to Climb game. An added bonus is that teachers can now choose to allow students to respond to open-ended questions using audio!
    • ClassFlow--all kinds of question types, plus Categorise, Crossword, Flashcards, Labelled Diagram, Matching, Memory Game, Sequencing, Timeline, Venn Diagram, and Word search + gradebook and LMS like features. It’s only detriment, possibly, is that it does so much!
    • Formative--multiple choice, multiple selection, true or false, short answer, essay, and Show Your Work (students can draw, type, or even upload an image) + more in the paid version…. Great data
    • Classkick - Students can respond using drawings, highlights, text, images (even from their webcam!) or audio (yup! They can record their voice!).
    • Seesaw--This student work could be a photo, a drawing, an annotated photo (within the drawing tool), a video, a note, audio (within the photo, drawing, or note tool), a link, or an uploaded file.
