Create and send short videos using Threadit's easy-to-use features. Available within the Chrome browser or as an extension, Threadit includes several options such as screen sharing and the ability to piece together short video clips into one video. Start with a blank screen or choose from templates such as tutorials, congratulatory wishes, and project updates. After selecting a template or blank format, be sure to follow directions to allow access to your computer's microphone and camera. If using a template, follow the steps shown on the project's dashboard. Stages are editable; delete any portions you won't be using. When finished, follow the directions to publish and share with others. All of your completed videos are available after posting onto your Threadit account. In addition, viewers have the option to reply to your Threadit video with a video of their own.

tag(s): collaboration (80), Google (27), video (245)

In the Classroom

Think of Threadit as something similar to FlipGrid, reviewed here, and Flipgrid responses. Use it to share how-to videos of computer software or games, start a question or prompt and ask students to reply, or create a video to accompany an article for students to read that points out highlights and important information. Use Threadit as a tool for groups to share threaded presentations. For example, ask each group member to record his portion of the presentation and then add the short videos into one longer video presentation. Many students are familiar with the short video format of tools such as TikTok, engage students by sharing Threadit as a similar tool to use in an educational setting.

Circlyapp is a platform for organizing and sharing information visually using brightly colored circles as an organizing tool. Work as an individual or invite others into collaborative projects and discussions using Circlyapp. Register for an account using your email to begin a blank project or choose from shared templates. The shared templates include ideas for book reviews, character maps, and a drag-and-drop opposite adjectives game. After creating a project, use the link to share with collaborators. Free accounts allow you to save up to 30 projects and download completed activities as an image.

tag(s): charts and graphs (165), graphic organizers (43), organizational skills (94)

Share Circlyapp on your whiteboard or screen when remote teaching as a visual tool for organizing and discussing any topic.

Have older students complete character maps on their own as an assessment activity. Share with students who are working on group projects as an organizational tool for managing different project components. Ask students to include a completed Circlyapp image as part of a larger project or book report.

Looking for great ideas on how to measure learning with engaging student projects? Look no further! This workshop will introduce you to a wide range of projects designed with Sway, a free edtech design tool for students in grades 2-12. This visually dynamic, intuitive tool easily combines text, images, designs, audio, video to spark student creativity. It's shareable, can be collaborative, looks fantastic, and is accessible on any device, making it a perfect addition to your 1:1 initiative toolbox. Learn the basics in minutes and translate your new learning into powerful formative and summative student projects that focus on content rather than bells and whistles. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Learn basic use of the free Sway tool; 2. Understand what elements must be present to have an authentic, successful show-what-you-know student project; and 3. Plan for the use of Microsoft Sway in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
