Tool #6 Using web tools to promote discussion in and out of the classroom
Ok so this exploration of new tools to use in my classroom continues. I have created an Edmodo account specific to health science and have added the first assignment. Students will seek out information on the web pertaining to the healthcare ruling by the suprememe court and then comment on it. The hope is that this will promote an on line discussion by my students between my 2 health science classes. I had previously created a Diigo account with a similar application. I guess I will have to try these out in real class setting before I can full appreciate their application in a classroom setting.
