Breakout 4 - Engage vs Involve
2Touch - Engage vs Involve
Notes from breakout 4 - thoughts in italics.
Engage - can be engaged but not active particpant
Involve - students have ownership
Waste of time preparing alot of lessons.
Students having more ownership in making lessons and creating lessons.
Asking questions vs delivering information.
More time in background questions etc
Prompts through core collection of prompts - videos, hyperlinks etc
Performance style - students being up front, in front of peers. Pressure/Risk taking.
Participation in front of peers.
(How does this work when students are still seen with the optivote - how is this low risk??)
Responses can be seen or be anon when voting with optivote.
Give a quick quiz on previous session - good feedback.
Becomes part of the session.
optivote.com - voting system.
wordwall - pc version only - wordpad voting system being developed.
Clicker systems via Manzana website.
Competition element - good for boys.
Collaboration through sharing and working on ideas.
Wordwall concept developed into IWB (Wordwallweb)
Wordwall linked to google images.
