I have spent time throughout the first semester co-planning and co-teaching several units of study in various courses at the grade 9 level. Explain Everything has been a useful app that allows students to annotate, narrate, and publish their work for others to see.
In 2 Science 9 classes and a Spanish 9/10 class we challenged students to:
– pick a meaningful topic to study and then teach to their peers via a presentation using Explain Everything
– collaborate in small groups to co-create their lesson
– respectfully communicate in a digital setting on each other’s work with a focus on improving one another’s work
– reflect, revise, and re-publish their work one last time
Below are a few examples of what students produced. Enjoy!
