InsertLearning is a chrome extension that most teachers who are using the internet as a teaching tool should be aware of and give it a shot in their classroom.
I have to give a shout out to my #holmanclass. We talked about this over the weekend during class and then my student teacher mentioned it Monday, who is going to be looking for a job:). So, we gave it a try...Very glad we did.
The image to the left is the webpage. The image to the right is what kids see when they enter the page with a link I provide. I was able to insert highlights, define words, and ask self correcting questions directly in the text. Below you see an added short answer box for students to explain the central idea in the reading.
Below you see my personal favorite, the ability to add a video of me directly explaining an idea the is complex and allowing students to tell me what they learned from the short video and reading.
Tomorrow student will "receive" the feedback from me and student will use this knowledge to build projects on the Magna Carta. I will post more about what the Insertlearning in the next few weeks. Right now I am impressed, but I am always interested in what the Student's think, they will fill out a google form tomorrow and I will post their reactions. Below is a photo gallery of other images from and feature of Insertlearning.
