  81. 81. 86 What I’d Buy Instead of an Interactive Whiteboard by Bill Ferriter, The Tempered Radical • Give me $5,000-$6,000 to spend on a middle school classroom with 25 students and I’ll buy: – 5 Netbook Computers Cost: $1,250 • Give me one netbook for every 5 kids in my classroom and I can create instant workstations for groups. – 5 YEARS of VoiceThread for my Students Cost: $300 • With little digital skill, kids of all ages can interact in Socratic style conversations on school related topics with one another both in and out of school. – 5 YEARS of Brainpop Access for my Classroom Cost: $731 • Brainpop is a service that creates short (3-5 minute) animated videos on topics across the curriculum. – 5 YEARS of Access to Poll Everywhere Cost: $645 • What makes Poll Everywhere—an online application that allows teachers to create and deliver quick surveys—unique is that students can respond to surveys via text message from their cell phones, making the need for student responders obsolete in most middle school classrooms considering the number of students carrying cell phones to school each day. – A Mid-Range Data Projector Cost: $595 –Total = $3,521 – Camtasia Screencasting Software Cost: $179
  82. 82. Backchanneling
  83. 83. Try Backchanneling in Your Classroom • A backchannel is another word for chat, your students type their comments as the class is discussing an item or when you are presenting. • Allows all types of learners to actively participate.
