Activities against apps

mobile-phone-bird

If you’ve just started teaching online, you’re probably inundated with information about hundreds of new apps to try out: interactive game platforms, whiteboards, blackboards, meters, shmeters…. šŸ™‚ It’s all good and well when used in moderation, but don’t you think our learners already have too much on their virtual plates? To balance the digital, I like to give more attention to what we can do with what we already have – think exploiting a picture, doing a web tour, using the chat. It”s hard to find such low-tech activities in the edutech world, so make sure you bookmark, or even better, download this free collection from Delta Publishing: excerpts from the fantastic book Teaching Online by Nicky Hockly and Lindsay Clandfield. I’m going to experiment with their version of Find Someone Who next, and you?

P.S. Did you know I had a series of posts where I was exploring online teaching long before it became the only way to teach? The series begins here.
