Four Important considerations when choosing or creating a digital learning resource
Groups of teachers were arriving each week and their experience with digital technologies varied greatly.
For the training session I chose to use the Google Quiz tool.
In other words, the teachers become my class of learners.
The beauty about google quiz is that it is easy to create, implement and interpret results.
Sometimes there can be some frustration with the lack of functionality, but that needs to be weighed against the ease of use.
I agreed that it was nice and simple within Google Quiz, however at this point I would like to retract my recommendation in my last post of “Zaption” as an effective interactive video tool for blended learning.
The evidence was conclusive that, when a class individually watched a video and answered questions using Zaption (or other equivalent tools), that they became disengaged from the teacher and each other for most of this process.
I used a Kahoot testing them on how to make a google quiz to finish up.
The key difference between Google Quiz and Kahoot in this lesson, was that the Google Quiz was designed for learners to collaborate and discuss, while a Kahoot was an instant buzz to generate hype.
Most importantly, ensure that the tool is both accessible and usable by those using it.
