The Backchannel - Help TodaysMeet

TodaysMeet is the premier backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. Designed for teachers, TodaysMeet takes great care to respect the needs and privacy of students while giving educators the tools for success. Students join fast, easy to start rooms with no registration, and can immediately start powerful conversations that augment the traditional classroom. What is the Backchannel? The backchannel is the conversation that goes on alongside the primary activity, presentation, or discussion. Over the last month since I shared my positive experiences (here and here) of using a back-channel chat in my classroom, I've received quite a few questions about services that can be used for hosting back-channel discussions.

The following are five free platforms that can be used hosting a back-channel chat. Overview of Edshelf. Research on multiple choice questions. Since my last posts on multiple choice questions (here and here), Kris Boulton and Joe Kirby have pointed me in the direction of Robert Bjork’s work on remembering and forgetting. Here’s an extract from a paper titled ‘Multiple-Choice Tests Exonerated, at Least of Some Charges: Fostering Test-Induced Learning and Avoiding Test-Induced Forgetting’.

The authors accept that multiple choice questions are often not good tests, but argue that this is because they are done badly rather than because of any intrinsic flaw. The present work demonstrates that properly constructed multiple- choice practice tests can be important learning events for students. Achieving “proper construction” of such tests— which requires that incorrect alternatives be plausible, but not so plausible that they are unfair—is, however, a challenge.

As any teacher who has used multiple-choice tests can testify, writing good multiple-choice items is very hard work, whereas writing poor ones is relatively easy. Online Focus Groups - The Observer Experience. Backchannels - Richard Byrne. A backchannel is essentially a private or public chat room that you and your students can have conversations in while another activity is going on.

For example, you can backchannel while watching a documentary film, while listening to a guest speaker, or as a place to record ideas and data during a class project. A backchannel gives students the opportunity to record their thoughts and ask their questions without having to wait to be called upon. A backchannel also gives teachers the opportunity to hear from more students more often. Read about how I use backchannels during classroom viewings of films by clicking here. Here are some backchannel platforms appropriate for schools:1. Backchannel Chat - Safe Secure Classroom Discussions. Log in. Smartphone Ownership and Internet Usage Continues to Climb in Emerging Economies. But advanced economies still have higher rates of technology use By Jacob Poushter As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, both economically and socially, technology adoption remains one of the defining factors in human progress. To that end, there has been a noticeable rise over the past two years in the percentage of people in the emerging and developing nations surveyed by Pew Research Center who say that they use the internet and own a smartphone.

And while people in advanced economies still use the internet more and own more high-tech gadgets, the rest of the emerging world is catching up. In 2013, a median of 45% across 21 emerging and developing countries reported using the internet at least occasionally or owning a smartphone. For smartphone ownership, the digital divide between less advanced economies and developed economies is 31 points in 2015.

Internet and smartphone rates are also related to overall country wealth.

The Guide to Pinterest for Educators. Over 500,000 education-related pins are saved to Pinterest every day. That number is expected to grow with the launch of Teachers on Pinterest — a collaborative effort between Pinterest, education experts such as Edutopia, and a collection of teacher bloggers.

The platform's creation of their own education-focused Pinterest community demonstrates the value and power of using this tool in the classroom. Recognizing that power, we've teamed up with noted author and education expert Leah Anne Levy to create The Guide to Pinterest for Educators — a handbook designed with today's digitally literate educators in mind. This handbook provides teachers and administrators with the tools needed to not only navigate Pinterest, but also to use the social platform as a powerful learning tool for both teachers and students.
