Freeform-Math Strategy Sharing
I have been exploring with Freeform and ways to use it in the classroom. The collaborative abilities of it really make it an unlimited space for students to share. In elementary classrooms, sharing strategies for solving word problems is a huge focus.
The Freeform boards allow flexibility to share the problem, and have students share their strategies all in one space. With the drawing tools, shapes, and photos available, students have the freedom to choose the way they show their thinking. I also love the idea of students creating their own videos explaining their thought process to solve the problem. They can add these videos to the board as well.
This allows the teacher to share one file, but the answers can be submitted in a variety of formats. The teacher can then comment on student strategies and call attention to innovative ways to solve the problems.
As an added way to spice up the word problems, I used keynote to bring life to the problem I created. Adding shapes gives a realistic visual for students to refer to when solving.
Hope this Freeform strategy brings some ideas to your classroom!
