Even though they teach different grades, they share one common goal: learning needs to be interactive. The Merrills put a new spin on traditional strategies and implementing technology to meet the needs of students. Contact Info: @TheMerrillsEDU on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Website: themerrillsedu.com EdTech BFF Game! Educational Duct Tape Question: What are some specific tech tools that educators can use to make their classroom interactive? “Interactive Learning is learning that is responsive and relevant, that engages students.” Responsive, not Reactive Here’s a summary from this article: “Responsiveness implies thoughtful action that considers long and short term outcome in the context of the situation at hand. Reactive behavior is immediate and without conscious thought, like a knee jerk response. Reactive behavior is often driven by the emotions.” Flipgrid – flipgrid.com Breakouts with grid passcodes Podcasting with stickers Appsmashing Joe’s tweet with the President Lincoln beard & hat Seesaw – web.seesaw.me Making sure parents are connected Analog activities can easily be shared via Seesaw Changes the question of “what did you do today?” to “how did you do it?” Buncee – edu.buncee.com/about Can share out directly from Buncee or through something like Seesaw Can add a range of content (GIFs, maps, 360 images, drawing tools, record video within, assessment questions, etc.) Share out as pdf or link Microsoft Immersive Reader built-in Can assign Buncees and have kids submit Can ask questions or build assessments within slides, kind of like Nearpod or Pear Deck Combines Google Slides-like creation features along with NearPod/Pear Deck like assessment features Ideas Lab OneNote integration allows teacher to keep all Buncees in one location BookCreator – BookCreator.com The ability to share out (to parents, etc.) from the tool is important Content from the Duct Taper Community Apple Podcasts Review – Moomooforyoubabydoll3333 Favorite #EduDuctTape Tweets: (each handle is linked to the mentioned tweet) @KristaHach @AbramsTank95 @ehlmstech New #EduDuctTape Tweeps: @alextvalencic, @chelsea_hurst1, @Joshua__Stamper, @Mrs_EDarnell, @mrs_schlecht, @RLEdsall, @SangareeSchool, @TheiTeamHawk #EduDuctTape FlipGrid Response: Krista Hachadoorian
