Which One Does Not Belong? #dptech

This is a collaborative "Which One Doesn't Belong?" (WODB) Keynote activity for students. Students will look at the prompt, decide which one doesn't belong, and then add a slide that corresponds to that color and explain their reasoning. Each added slide has helper words that help students use academic vocabulary as they justify their choice. The different slide colors allow everyone to quickly scan and see which options were chosen, and students can read each other's justifications.

To edit so that students can select the correct slides, you need to change the slide layouts. Access by pressing CMD + Shift + E.

Steps to edit:

  1. Find or create an image that has four different options in the corners and save to your photos
  2. Open the WODB template, and enter the Edit Slide Layout section by pressing CMD + Shift + E.
  3. On the title slide, select the existing WODB image and delete it. Replace it with your own and align it with the four colored squares.
  4. Continue changing the WODB image on the four slide colors. You will need to unlock and then relock the shapes to edit.
  5. Update the helper words on all four slide colors.
  6. Share a collaborative version with your students.

Steps to use:

  1. Students will open the collaborative Keynote and analyze the photo on the title slide.
  2. When they decide which corner doesn't belong, they will select Add Slide ( + ), and choose the color that corresponds with their choice.
  3. Students will write their name and their justification for why that option doesn't belong.

Keys to Success:

  1. Use options where there isn't a clear correct option. You can increase student discourse and help them learn to flexibly analyze information if they know that there isn't a "right" answer.
  2. Teach students to immediately write their name on their slide once they make their choice and their new slide pops up. It can be overwhelming at the beginning when all the new slides are being added, and if students click around before adding their name, they won't be able to find their slide again.
  3. Have a follow up activity that has students explore their peers' answers and write a reflection response. For example, an "I notice, I wonder" post about another student's response that was different than their own.
