Tapped In was employed in the AP and Advanced Government/Economics classes and the AP Psychology class. It provided unexpected benefits to both the teacher and the students. http://www.tappedin.org
Tapped In includes a discussion board that allowed us to discuss items related to our curriculum. Students responded enthusiastically to the addition of our Tapped In pages.
The online chat section allowed students to work collaboratively and to receive help from the instructor during “after-class” hours
The Advanced Placement Psychology Tapped In Room http://www.tappedin.org
Tapped In allowed students to collaborate on group projects and upload their work for further collaboration with the class. Also present in the files section were student constructed reviews for the Advanced Placement test.
Benefits of Tapped In <ul><li>Created an online presence for the class. </li></ul><ul><li>Tapped In contains a discussion board that encouraged extended discussion of classroom curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>The real-time chat feature allowed students to work together collaboratively and to get help from the instructor when she was “in the room” also. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are better prepared for online work required in college courses they will take in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Tapped In allowed students to experiment in a safe environment controlled by the instructor. </li></ul>
