The other night I sent an SOS out to my Twitter PLN for new ways to help students revise for the School Certificate English exam. The response was wonderful, as usual 🙂 The suggestions included:
@Madiganda I allowed my students to build their own revision resources using a choice between things like Xtranormal, Prezi, Notebook quiz @Madiganda they loved building Xtranormal videos the best n published on Edmodo for all @Madiganda for study why not use FuaxFlash, BrainFlips or Falshcard exchange, Use Bubbl.us or creately for Mindmaps 🙂 @Madiganda I used the IWB software to make ‘Jeopardy’ for SC Revision. SO engaging! @Madiganda also used Primarypad to do revision questions in small groups, this worked well
Boy, did that give me a lot to think about and play with! LOVE the possibilities of ClassDojo for recording and rewarding student behaviour etc (but will leave this for another post) and went back to the various flash card creators to see what could be done with these. I chose Brainflips in the end and here is my “deck” revising the terms they will need to know for the exams. That is where I will start and then I will investigate the other tools and ideas in the next week. Then end result will hopefully be well prepared and engaged students!
