That’s right. I’m finally ready to step down from my ThingLink throne and pass the torch. Or something. What I’m trying to say is… I’ve been doing this iPad thing for a bit. *I* create the Nearpods… *I* create the Socrative assessments… *I* create the ThingLinks… and it’s time to get my students more involved in creating content.
My first step will be to assign a ThingLink task. Now that ThingLink has provided a platform for tracking student accounts, I’m ready to take the leap.
I pondered creating a rubric, but since this is the first time my students are creating a math ThingLink, I figure this is more of an instructional and ed-tech ice-breaker. I’ll use what we all learn from this experience to create a rubric later.
Here’s the write-up I’d planned to share with my students. Have you asked students to create ThingLinks? Are you a master at writing rubrics? Feedback and insight are welcome! 🙂
Here’s a follow-up post with student work samples – enjoy!
