Using an Online Collaboration App in Problem-Based Learning: An iPad Pilot

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come hear about my experience this past year using an online collaborative multimedia app called Voicethread in which I had students discuss their problem-solving attempts and successes. For 10 weeks my geometry class has iPads and we found different ways to communicate our problem-solving techniques to enhance the discussion in our problem-based curriculum into the homework hours thus making the most of their out-of-class time as well. Student evaluations of the program, pros and cons of the outcomes and other apps that were used will be discussed as well.
