How I Use It
I use it often as an entrance and exit slip to assess student knowledge or growth. Perfect for partner responses, whole group reflection, and visual thinking strategy responses, not to mention journal writing. Great for ice breakers and getting to know you topics. I use for problem of the day, vocabulary word of the day, think pair share, as well as open forum for students to share ideas or topics they would like to learn about.
My Take
Quick and easy to use as an entrance or exit slip to assess student knowledge or understanding of a topic. Great for collaboration. My only wish is that there was a way for students not to be able to see everyone's responses at first, that would allow for more free thoughts. I appreciate that it is very user friendly and is customizable so I can add my own photos or topics.
