Using Freeform with Active Learning Methodologies.
All children (and me) need focus and guidelines when learning about a new or familiar topic. I frequently use active learning methodologies to guide pupil research.
One of my favourites that can be used easily with technology is Diamond 9. Diamond 9 provides a framework for reordering facts and opens up constructive discussion.
In my example, the children will research the solar system and identify nine facts. I like for the children to open freeform and safari in split screen and to conduct their research this way.
Their Diamond 9 framework then provides the basis for their continuing project.
For differentiation purposes, I sometimes give the children three to four facts, and they add the rest. They can decide to keep or discard my points, and once they have recorded all 9, they start to order them according to importance.
The sticky note aspect of Freeform will allow the children to create and collaborate easily using this methodology.
