Colonize Mars? LET'S DEBATE! Using Freeform in Space Science
In my Space Science class I start off our Social Implications unit with a debate. I have struggled with how to organize this activity, after all, I'm a physics teacher and do not have a lot of experience moderating a debate.
In the past, I had each team just make a slide show and compile their information that way, but what I quickly realized is they kept having to go back and forth in their deck to defend or prompt the next point.
TODAY!! (Thanks Christine Klynen) I used Freeform! World changed!
Students broke into teams and collaborated on one board with all of their research/links/pictures in one place. They just slid around the space to defend or prompt the next discussion. AMAZING! I'm excited for my students to get better at using the platform and make it more productive, but for a quick overview and only 15 minutes of preparation time, I was very happy with the results.
I attached the assignment. Enjoy! #D214 #ADEPhysics
