Twiducate – every student has a voice

TwiducateThis is not the first time I have blogged about Twiducate. I am doing this so the teachers who didn’t know about it on #aussieED can get a better idea of what it is. I have used it with my junior secondary classes for a number of years now. It provides an avenue for every student to have a voice. It also allows them , for my lessons, to practise their French or to give me feedback and ideas on an assignment. A classic use of it last year was when I was trying to do group assessment and it was the first time I had done it with my class. We wanted to get it right. We used Twiducate to feed in our ideas. I have worked with a French class in France with it. It was good because the French students were writing at night and when we came into class the next day their posts were there. Students like Twiducate. I can put the feed back or input up on my whiteboard and we can have a look at what they wrote and what we think or whether we have some errors to correct in French. It is a safe, reliable platform for feedback and literacy skills.It also makes a good precursor to blogging. My year 8s loved it last year and they would put up pictures with their text and share links with each other for assignments. Each class uses it slightly differently. As a teacher you are in control since you can delete undesirable comments. I have never had to do that. Twiducate brings out he best in students. I write a post with my questions or ideas or little task and away they go. They also love seeing their comments pop up on the board if I link it to my board. Twiducate has been invaluable in my classroom for ensuring everybody gets seen and heard. It’s a tool which creates equity.

    • Thank you for that. I really appreciaite it. I have just set up my year 9 class on Twiducate and noticed you applied for invitation on EdMettle. Sounds like I should move them over? Will get that done asap. Appreciate your being so alert.

  2. […] created safe, educational platform to simulate real world skills in social media and feedback. Like Twiducate, it is designed with safety in mind. I confess I haven’t signed up for my look around yet […]
