Top 3 Tools to Leverage the Classroom Backchannel
There is an old saying ~ “If you can’t beat them, join them.”
Most teachers acknowledge that it’s a losing battle to fight the chatter (electronic or not)
Students can and will Instant Message, use Facebook, Twitter and other “Back-Channel” resources to interact during a class. They are digital natives and therefore feel comfortable using technology for all kinds of day-to-day communication.
So the million dollar question is:
“How can today’s teachers use that chatter to keep an eye on the tone of the room and enhance learning? How can they embrace the chatter?”
Our whitepaper, Top 3 Tools to Leverage the Classroom Backchannel, demonstrates how teachers – in both online and digital classrooms – can channelize background chatter into community learning. In particular, it will show how Twitter and WizIQ can help teachers embrace the chatter and direct everyone to a deeper understanding of the study material.
