Parlay is a virtual round table student-driven discussion tool. Browse the discussion prompts available on the site or create your own to begin. Each round table starts with a statement of the learning goals for the activity. Students then view added content and multimedia, including videos, articles, and other information to support the discussion. After reviewing the content, students participate by responding to discussion questions followed by peer feedback. After creating a round-table, invite students to participate using the join code or link to your activity. Parlay connects to Google Classroom, allowing educators to assign to students automatically. The free option offers up to twelve round tables and one custom content request.

tag(s): business (46), civil rights (144), civil war (123), digital citizenship (70), ecology (104), ethics (20), genetics (72), journalism (65), listening (70), literature (218), literature circles (4), media literacy (82), novels (23), politics (98), renaissance (30), Teacher Utilities (110), world war 1 (55), world war 2 (130)

In the Classroom

Parlay is an excellent tool to help you teach listening and discussion skills! Browse through Parlay topics to find many ideas for engaging students in thoughtful discussions and conversations. Include recorded conversations in addition to written student responses using Vocaroo, reviewed here. If sharing articles to discuss, use Fiskkit, reviewed here, for students to annotate and comment within each article. The free Parlay option is limited; however, access to the Round Table ideas is free. Use these ideas to promote classroom discussion with FlipGrid, reviewed here. Ask students to use Flipgrid to record video responses upon completing the learning and discussion portions of the Round Table activities.

Wooclap takes smartphones into the classroom for use as an interactive learning tool. Use Wooclap to ask multiple-choice questions, polls, and ask students to locate areas on images. Use the messaging feature to gather and display messages from participants. Wooclap also features options for add-ins to include PowerPoint Slides, Google Slides, PDF's, and more. Free Wooclap accounts allow users two questions for up to 1,000 students; however, it is free for educators in K12 by following the directions found here. Create an account to begin, then add an event. Choose the type of activity from the provided options such as a poll, open-ended question, word cloud, and more. Share your activity using the event code or link created for it.

tag(s): assessment (119), polls and surveys (45), quizzes (82)

In the Classroom

Use Wooclap to engage students in learning while gathering feedback in real-time. Start a lesson by asking students to respond to a prompt about the upcoming information. For example, at the beginning of a math lesson on geometric shapes, share a picture, and ask students to share a thought on what they see in the image. Use the poll feature as an exit ticket and ask students to share their comfort level in understanding the lesson. Are you finding that your students are losing interest in a topic? Bring them back with a quick Wooclap poll or question response. Use Wooclap for both remote and in-person learning to engage learners.

In the Classroom

Even if you don't use the Bridges in Mathematics curriculum, this site provides many supports for any math curriculum. Include the math apps as part of a math center or include them in your shared resources for math practice. Use a bookmarking tool like Symbaloo, reviewed here, to share all of your math practice sites with students on your classroom computers and devices. Take advantage of the daily math activities to share open-ended math problems with students using FlipGrid, reviewed here. Display the problem on Flipgrid, and ask students to create a video sharing their response and problem-solving technique. Use the math activities to differentiate students' activities, use ideas from upper grades to challenge students, or help struggling students reinforce previous concepts by choosing ideas from lower grade levels.
