< Spiral Feedback
I have been using Spiral for a few weeks and I love it! I am a Spanish and French teacher at an iPad 1:1 school. We have been using the "Clip" feature to create listening activities from Youtube videos. This is something that I always wanted to have for class. The other feature that I love and can't say enough about is "Team Up." It is an extraordinary collaborative tool. Students work in teams to create presentations being held accountable by the great participation tracking features. You can personalize each team's learning outcomes, you can give feedback to teams, pause all teams work, see work organized by student to hold each accountable, see work by type, to make sure they aren't just adding photos, and give them stars, to let them know they are on the right track. It is easy for students to start using. We have done three projects in class with it recently. In French 1a, students created a travel blog presentation for a city in France. In Spanish 1a, students created a house for a Spanish speaking celebrity, and in Spanish 1b students made a pictionary/dictionary of emotions and activities to say how they feel when they do certain activities. We took several days that the save and continue later feature is great. Such a great tool to add to anyone's teacher technology toolbox! My new favorite!
