Tutors who came to the session at the end of April enjoyed a fun afternoon trying out a number of innovative apps and websites which enhance learning. The materials and links are available on Fenc – click here.
We discussed the idea of taking some of the course online – either:
- before the session, for example asking learners to do some research on a topic, or making contact with learners via social media for example http://www.padlet.com
- after the session, for example in further support available on a simple blog, or a quick quiz for example www.testmoz.com
Click on the link below to open a Padlet – very easy to set up, no need to log on or have an account, anyone can contribute:
Here’s another Padlet with links to more resources we looked at:
Tutors have already started to use Padlet and Testmoz with learners and found them really useful, and easy to use. The important thing is to explore and try it out – you can’t break the internet!
We also looked at :
http://www.smore.com – for creating flyers and posters
http://www.piktochart.com – for creating infographics
http://www.blogger.com – for creating a very simple and easy blog – great for keeping in touch with learners. Why not add video (bambuser.com) and audio (audioboom.com) for added va va voom??
http://www.qr-code-generator.com – for creating QR codes, perhaps for treasure trail, or just an easy way to share a link.
Do let us know how you get on and how your learners engage with these ideas! Or get in touch if you have any questions, or other suggestions…
