An EASY way to share learning!

check-thisHave you ever used Checkthis? It is an amazingly easy way for students to share information with others. Checkthis  makes it very easy to create and share colorful text and images. Students can write-up a quick reading response, an explanation to a math problem, a quick report on a topic, or even their own multiple choice quiz for a unit of study (using the poll feature). The fun part for kids is being able to read their friend’s posts. The thing I love about this site? NO LOGINS! No need for a user name, password, or email address. Don’t be fooled when you go to this site and it says “SIGN UP”…just click where the plus sign and then click create a post online. Below are some samples of my kiddos trying out Checkthis for the first time. For this, I just wanted them to experiment with the format, so for this purpose, it was a topic of their choice. When students are finished showcasing information, creating a quiz, or creating a digital report, then they can publish their site and receive a link to share with others. Normally, I will write down all of the links and upload them into a Google Doc so that I can email that document with the links of the entire class out to the parents. It is great for parents to see what their students are doing, especially utilizing amazing technology resources!
