Hi all. Yesterday my AP biology students had the opportunity to collaborate with Todd Mayville's Theory of Knowledge class in a live blogging session.
This was my first time using cover it live and it is really cool!. Kind of like instant messaging simultaneously between 30+ people! The topic was "How do filters affect our Knowledge" which as a prompt took the discussion in many different directions. An archive of the dialogue can be accessed here.
This was a new experience for almost all of my students and the feedback was very positive. I observed students engaged, enjoying the activity and realizing the power of such a tool.
Access was easy and immediate due to Todd placing the link on his blog and me emailing the link to my students,
So, check out http://www.coveritlive.com/.
It has lots of possibilities.
Thanks Todd (aka Mr. Live Blog!)
