Apps to assist collaborative learning

This post discusses how apps can be used to create a collaborative  learning environment. More specifically, the author provides guiding questions and apps for learning as starting points for global collaboration lessons to encourage student voice and engagement across content areas, native language, and grade levels. I have listed the apps below, as well as their official descriptions:

  • Padlet: No description is provided on the official site (a bad oversight).  According to the linked post, it is a virtual corkboard that allows students to express and organize their thoughts on a shared topic
  • Voxer: Combines the power of live voice with text, video and photo sharing.
  • KahootCreate, play and share fun learning games for any subject, for all ages
  • SoundTrapMake music online
  • ThingLink: An interactive media platform that empowers publishers, educators, brands, and bloggers to create more engaging content by adding rich media links to photos and videos
  • NearpodEasily create lessons in minutes for your next class
