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.

REVIEW: Exitticket: Creating Individualized Instruction for Students | Edudemic | Williams Wild Technology | Scoop.it
When it comes to crafting individualized instruction for your students, ExitTicket tops the class. Tested against other apps in its category, this app emerged as the fullest-featured piece of exit ticket software I’ve seen. Although indispensable for offering individualized instruction, it also offers the additional advantages of being aligned with national Common Core and Science Standards initiatives. After using it over the course of a week for lesson-planning and student assessment, I found that Exitticket’s features and continuity with educational standards create a seamless experience.

It is wise not to allow allow large dichotomies, perhaps false dichotomies to dominate this debate. Critical thinking, collaborative work and knowledge of content are all important and attainable for good teachers, as they have been. It is a matter of emphasis. Check
