Links You’ll Love – 5-16-14

The end is coming! Yes, folks, we are getting ready for the final days of school! Here are two great links for preparing end-of-year activities. Purpose games is a free site where you can create multi-choice games, image games and more. eQuizShow  is a site created by a student where you can create Jeopardy-like game shows.

If you have 15 minutes to spare, listen to this interview with Professor Elizabeth Lawley, and learn more about Rochester Institute of Technology’s efforts to introduce social gaming into the undergraduate experience. It’s just a fascinating experiment – and I think it could be modified for lots of other frameworks.

Teachers have long been using reflection activities such as exit slips, journaling and more. We just know that these techniques work! A new study finds we’re right (duh)! This article discusses the long-lasting merits of taking time to have your students reflect on their learning.

Okay – this is unique… Booktrack Classroom is a web service that allows your students (or you) to take a book or their own story and add a soundtrack. Basically it looks like you paste in your text and then add background music to enhance it. I like this a lot – I think it would be a fun end-of-year activity for your students! Learn more at Booktrack.
