Tools for sharing thinking

Tools for sharing thinking | Education CC | Scoop.it
Teachers and students have access to an impressive set of tools for sharing
ideas and making thinking visible. The old model of calling out answers to
questions has certain limitations and while it remains the mainstay of many
classrooms new options allow for a mix of options. Some of our goals are to
provide our students with appropriate wait time or think time and to ensure
the voice of even our most introverted students is heard. It would also be
nice to have a record of our students thinking and a way to easily see
patterns of thinking across a group of students.

Fortunately there are a number of free tools that do these things and they
are available for use on any technology platform as they require nothing
more than access to the internet. Recently Eric Sheninger used a set of
these tools to give his audience at the Hawker Brownlow Conference on
Thinking and Learning in Melbourne a voice.

One of the simplest to use and set up is “Answer Garden”. This allows you
to quickly pose a question online and it provides an easy to share web
address that respondents use to enter their answers. Results are pooled and
the result is a tag cloud or answers where the size of the answer reflects
the frequency of the response. Answer garden works well with open ended
questions and can be used to quickly identify issues, understandings and
thought patterns of a group. It is so quick and easy to set up that it can
be done on the fly and on demand.
 

Padlet is a well known tool for gathering responses to a question or issue
together. It is a virtual inboard that allows users to post and share notes
through an easy to use website. In many respects it is similar to the
practice of using Post-It notes to record ideas and share them by sticking
them onto a wall. Padlet is easy to set up and can be customised with
coloured backgrounds, coloured notes and can handle images. Post-Its on
Padlet can be randomly placed allowing similar ideas to be grouped together
or it can be sorted in various ways automatically to create a neat grid.
 

Lino is in many respects similar to Padlet and could be used in exactly the
same way. It adds the ability to comment on or reply to posts, a feature
that encourages dialogue and could prove useful when more contentious
issues are shared in this format. It allows multiple questions to be posted
to a board with users replying to each, it would allow users to ask
questions of each other and to post replies to ideas in a way that ensures
relevant pieces stay together.
 

For linear conversations or back-channeling with media resources “Today’s
Meet” remains an excellent choice. In some respects, it is like a temporary
and task specific version of Twitter. A meet is created and link shared
that allows users to post responses of up to 140 characters. Each post is
added to the flow of ideas and the discussion evolves. It can become
chaotic and it is at times difficult to link ideas together as multiple
conversations emerge but it does provide a record of the thinking and
conversation occurring within a group.
 

A tool with a definite wow factor is Plickers. This is a multiple choice
response system with the benefit that it only requires a single device with
the Plickers App and a set of response cards of the students. Each response
card has a printed QR code and its alignment allows for four possible
responses. The card is rotated such that the desired multiple choice letter
or number is placed at the bottom. The App uses the devices camera to read
the code and record the individual responses. As each QR code is unique
individual responses are recorded and graph is produced showing how many
responses resulted for each option. Plickers provides a cheap alternative
to costly electronic ‘Clickers’ and its novelty factor and ease of use
enhances engagement. As with any multiple choice style solution the quality
of the questions or prompts will determine the quality of learning which
results. Creative use and avoidance of entirely closed questions/responses
will produce better results.
