My 7th and 8th grade students were given the assignment to create an introduction presentation of a randomly picked verb they had learned last year, develop a classroom practice activity and issue a quiz to support their lesson. I charged them with choosing methods that would be inviting and help students retain the reviewed information. I asked them to consider what had been especially appealing and useful when being presented with information by their own teachers when being introduced to new/review material in their classrooms.
One group chose Animoto to present, another group chose Wallwisher for practice, and yet another chose Socrative as their method of testing. All three applications I've introduced to my students this first quarter. I'm pleased they feel that these three apps met the qualifications and that they chose them to apply them to teach their lessons.
