How to use Graphic Organizers effectively in the classroomRead More
Getting younger students to record their ideas in a logical and engaging manner can be tough.
If you have reluctant writers in your classroom, you will appreciate how difficult it can be to get work from them demonstrating a clear understanding of what you have been teaching them.
Finding alternatives to written work is not always easy to come across especially if there are deeper issues than the student simply being a reluctant writer such as a diagnosed learning condition.
To counteract this issue I find Adobe Spark Video to be an incredibly easy to use on all devices. It is a powerful tool which as the name suggests relies mainly on visuals and images to share knowledge as opposed to writing down line after line of text.
The other great thing about Adobe Spark Video is the polish it adds to presentations that make them far more engaging than your traditional PowerPoint or Keynote presentation.
Simply giving students Adobe Spark Video and directions around a specific topic can sometimes leave them confused and seeking further clarification.
To remedy this I have created a free template which you can download here that will ensure your students stay on task and have a clear direction about what they are supposed to be doing. Best of all the template can be adapted to any age group or topic area
