Get onto Tackk

I haven’t used Tackk yet because I have just found out about it. The power of Twitter to bring me new ideas! I am certainly going to investigate this site. It would suit iPads perfectly. It would assist visual and written literacy and it would create some interesting marking! You can make the Tackk boards private or public, you can create boards through tagging to create a class board. Tackk is familiar ground. It is like Instagram, like Facebook, like Pinterest. It is very easy to create content which is both visual and written and then share that content. You can log in with various social media accounts and if you browse the Explore Tackks option you can see the sorts of content users are currently creating. Students who have an Edmodo account can log in with that otherwise it is probably better to get them to create an account with a school email and use that. Until more people use the site the educational potential won’t be tested . As the site grows and people use the site to publish content the possibilities will open up. At the moment it looks to be a very good site for creating shorter texts with pictures and I can see students loving this. You can also create stripped down blogs and I am certainly interested in exploring that option in an educational context since blogs are a powerful tool for demonstrating progress in learning. The tool bar at the top of the site handily and helpfully puts the Tackk content into convenient categories so while you are like me and working out exactly what you can do with Tackk you can investigate the content currently provided by other uses.
