In the Classroom
Introduce the site to students and show them how to navigate. Focus on the tab titled Rembrandt; there are several topics that would be good for small group investigation. Assign a topic to each group and ask them to create blogs sharing their learning and understanding using Telegra.ph, reviewed here. With Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. This blog creator requires no registration. You could take this a step further and have students report out what they learn to the rest of the class by developing a multimedia presentation using Vevox, reviewed here. Vevox offers interactive features such as real-time polls and comments to keep viewers interested and involved in the presentation. Vevox allows adding polls, videos, embeds, web links, and PowerPoint.
