Classroom Management: 9 Free Virtual Field Trips

Classroom Management: 9 Free Virtual Field Trips | Closing the Effort Gap: Getting the Learner into the Learning | Scoop.it
Kids love field trips. They’re out of the classroom, get to travel by bus with lots of kids and not enough adults. What’s not to like? A few items not to like come to my mind: Cost, staffing, potential for disaster. But there’s a way of using creative classroom management to provide the field trip experience with few …

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 14, 2014 8:42 PM

Verso is a new tool that come to us from teachers in Australia. It provides teachers the ability to create a 'challenge' and provide a prompt, which may be a video, document, website, etc. Add some thought provoking questions and students may answer within Verso. Students must post their own answer before they can respond to others, and all answers are anonymous.

Verso provides a number of resources to help you get started, including:

* Getting Started - This section "shows you how to Verso in 90 seconds", providing a number of examples (and you may choose one to try with your students).

* Strategies to Support Deeper Thinking - This section is very robust, and it is worth the time to check it out. They provide nine strategies to support deeper thinking, including:

     - Ask for more than one type of response from your student

     - Be explicit about how you want your students to respond, model an answer in your instruction

     - Be provocative to promote debate amongst your students

     - Let your students answer the questions. This section has an excellent resource "Asking Googleable vs NonGoogleable Questions"

*Verso Strategies: Building Deeper Collaboration Using Google Drive

* How To - Discover a range of videos and examples to help you get started

* Example Provocations - Find a wide variety of examples that you may choose to use.

They also have a blog that provides additional resources.

Their website uses three key words: Challenge, Engage, Learn. This website will allow your students to be challenged, engaged and learn and is worth taking some time to explore.
