An Edtech Minute with Geoboard

Michael Boll, Jamie Wilett and Chris Carter

geoboard

This tool is awesome for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Just like with the actual Geoboards, students stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more. However with the tech version, students can focus on the math concepts rather than getting frustrated with trying to manipulate the rubber bands.

Padlet is a great way to allow a group to quickly collaborate using a variety of media. When you begin your Padlet, you are given a blank space where anyone who is working on the project can drag and drop images, comments, video, etc. into the space to be shared.

I have used this brand new product to score class discussions, Socratic Seminars, as well as the eponymous Harkness Method discussion. I am pleased with the efficiency of the product, and improvements are being made to make this site more user friendly. If you are seeking a more efficient and effective method of recording discussions, one that automatically collects the scores into a downloadable spreadsheet, that give this product a try.
