  • 31. Chapter 3: Twiddla 25WHAT IS TWIDDLA?Twiddla is an online collaboration tool that is easy to use, does not requireany downloads or complicated firewall stuff, and is free for anybody. It is likehaving a whiteboard skin on top of any web page or uploaded image. Userscan mark up this whiteboard layer and interact with the web page at thesame time and in real time, with people from all over the world.(Source: http://www.twiddla.com/About/FAQ.aspx)ADVANTAGES OF TWIDDLAThe following are some advantages of Twiddla: It is free. It is available to anyone, anytime. No plug ins – only web browser needed. Interact with the web (or any uploaded picture, document or widget)and mark it up at the same time.
(Source: http://www.twiddla.com/About/FAQ.aspx)Chapter 3TWIDDLA
  • 32. 26 Chapter 3: TwiddlaWAYS OF USING TWIDDLA FOR TEACHING1. When holding in person office hours is not possible, Twiddla wouldbe excellent for holding online office hours. Online tutoring typicallyuses shared whiteboards, and helping students during office hours isvery similar to tutoring. Tutors generally have to provide helpwithout advance preparation, and Twiddla is excellent for quick,impromptu interaction using both words and drawings. The student’saccess to the whiteboard would make it easier for the teacher to leadthe student into finding his own answers. To set up online officehours, a teacher could communicate the time and the URL to hisstudents, then wait for them to navigate to the Twiddla sessionduring the scheduled time period.2. Another scenario where Twiddla would be useful would be ininstructing students on how to use a particular website, for exampletheir courses website. The instructor could lead the studentswebpage by webpage within Twiddla, using the drawing tools to pointout the important buttons, links and other features. The drawingswould disappear when navigating away from each page, but if themarkings are just simple pointers and highlights, this should not be amajor drawback.3. A teacher could give an effective live online presentation usingTwiddla. Twiddla sessions cannot be saved and reloaded like aPowerPoint presentation. However, an instructor could save a set ofimage files in a folder, and upload each of them to Twiddla before
  • 33. Chapter 3: Twiddla 27giving the presentation. Besides drawings and photos, the imagescould be snippets of text or mathematical functions. Ideally, thesewould be PNG files with a transparent background to avoid obscuringthe view of other images on the whiteboard. he Etherpadbackground could be used to allow the teacher to make impromptunotes. This would probably be best combined with an audio featureso that the teacher can speak while manipulating the images for thelecture. Twiddla does include voice channel.4. A lecture given by Twiddla would be more dynamic than a slidepresentation. It would give the lecturer the power to move andinteract the images on his board in different ways. It would also givehim the opportunity to ask a student to complete a figure using theelements on the whiteboard.(Source: http://mikescandi.blogspot.com/2011/02/web-20-tool-review-twiddla.html)

Inspires ongoing conversation about each image.10. Build fluency, precision and voice in second language.11. New dimension for creative analysis of historical photographs, mapsand artifacts.12. Ability to give and receive feedback from peers, teachers [formativeand summative assessment], parents and other relatives, local andglobal community.13. Can be used “as a storytelling tool, a deep thinking tool, a researchtool, an expository communication tool, and even an assessmenttool”.14. Allows for differentiation to accomodate different learning needs andstyles, another option for struggling or reluctant writers.15.

  • 60. 54 Chapter 6: VoicethreadWAYS OF USING VOICETHREAD?A VoiceThread allows every student in a class to easily record audiocommentary about the ideas and experiences that are important to them.Whether it’s an event, a project, or a milestone, students can tell their storyin their own voice,and then share it with the world. For educators, aVoiceThread offers a way to teach the principles of good digital citizenship aswell as providing a single vessel to capture and then share all the diversepersonalities of an entire class. A VoiceThread can be managed with littleeffort, creating digital heirlooms that can be shared by students, parents, andeducators alike. Pride and excitement is clearly evident in student voices asthey “publish” and archive their work.(Source: http://voicethread.com/image/voicethreads_in_the_classroom.pdf)USAGE IN TEACHING AND LEARNINGVoiceThread is an application that makes it easy to assemble visual media in apresentation. In providing a simple venue for sharing, creating, and assessingmedia projects, such applications may promote greater digital literacy andgreater enthusiasm for multimedia creation. What sets VoiceThread apartfrom these other applications is its easy integration of voice and other typesof media for commenting on an original artifact. VoiceThread offers a naturalonline interaction that lends itself to students presenting and defending theirwork before experts and peers. It seems reasonable that an environmentthat provides an easy way for students to listen to and add to the work oftheir peers may encourage more authentic peer assessment. Evaluations that
  • 61. Chapter 6: Voicethread 55include verbal and visual cues in each student’s own voice may be easier forstudents to interpret. In disciplines where students create a portfolio of theirwork, VoiceThread provides the opportunity to build annotatedpresentations that include voice, video, and text explanations of what theyhave done. Group and personal reflections can also be collected andpreserved. By far the greatest potential of VoiceThread lies in the creativeoppor tunity it provides for students to tell their own stories and tocontribute to or directly critique the narratives of their peers (Educause2009).The following are some ideas for using Voicethread in teaching and learning(InfoTech4Lrng 2008):1. Create or select images to accompany original poetry, poeticdevices or research.2. Record personal, family or community history, historic events or anoral history project, documentaries or essays.3. Create an photo album of your school or library narrated bystudents.4. Share oral reports about research through digital story.5. Opportunity for students to develop interview skills.6. Interview techniques.7. Build confidence with peers.8. Asking open ended questions.9. Providing interviewee time to elaborate.10. Follow up questions.11. Develop editing skills – eliminate errors and pauses.12. Collaborate with a school in another location.

Several toolsare optimal for the use of the online whiteboard, while the audio and textmessaging features facilitate collaboration among users. This is an ideal toolfor groups of students and teachers to brainstorm and plan outside of classhours, but with some forethought Scribblar also has the potential of beingused as a virtual classroom.(Source: http://teachinghistory.org/digital-classroom/tech-for-teachers/24475)BENEFITS OF SCRIBBLARThe following are some benefits for using Sribblar: Real-time and multi-user whiteboard Image upload and download Text chat with user list Crystal-clear live audio No user or session limits(Source: http://www.scribblar.com/index.cfm)Chapter 10SCRIBBLAR
  • 103. 96 Chapter 10: ScribblarEXAMPLES OF HOW SCRIBBLAR SUPPORT LEARNINGHere are a few examples of how this versatile tool may support learning: Math & Science Courseso Math and science teachers may use the Scribblar whiteboardto show students how to directly work out complicatedequations and problems. The program also includes a numberof built in equations editors and tools. After the teacherdemonstrates how to complete a problem, the teacher couldalso observe the students working out the problems either ontheir own or in groups. This allows the instructor to monitorand correct student(s) and every step of the process. Theonline student is effectively able to “show their work” in theonline environment without using a paper and pencil. English & Liberal Artso Liberal arts and English students may use Scribblar to uploadportion of their papers and/or presentations for review by theteacher or other group members. The program would allowthe instructor to highlight problem areas and discuss how tofix any issues in real-time. Instead of working on project andsharing information asynchronously, Scribblar allows users toupdate and alter information in real time without submittingmultiple drafts and using a lot of paper and ink. Photography Courseso Students in an online or hybrid photography course may usethe Scribblar tool to share a number of their photos with theinstructor and other students using this tool. With this
  • 104. Chapter 10:Scribblar 97program, the educator is able to point out specific strengthsand weaknesses of the photographs and provide instruction. Higher Education-Online Courseso Educators may also separate students into small groups inseveral rooms and give them case studies, articles, or topicsto review and discuss Following the small group activity, thestudents may return to one large classroom and discuss whatthey learned in the small group. Using Scribblar, the instructorwould be able to monitor and provide feedback much easierthan in a traditional classroom.(Source: https://sites.google.com/site/usmscribblar/home/classroom-examples)
