How do you find tools suitable for your students?

Teachers rated the suitability of tools which were proposed to students within the project. We entertained all answers where teachers knew the tool (there is no “I don`t know” answer).

According to teachers` answers children found Paint and Jigsaw Planet easy to use. Teachers noticed that using Interactive whiteboard was also easy for students, if only it was available in a classroom. Some difficulties were met while using Padlet, Photopeach and Voicethread. Glogster Edu was marked as more sophisticated tool . Sometimes it was also difficult for students to use WordPress blog.

How do you find tools interesting for your students?

In this question teachers rated the level of students` engagement while using project tools. Again, we took into account all answers where teachers knew the tool (there is no “I don`t know” answer).

With no doubt using Jigsaw Planet and Interactive whiteboard was engaging for students. Some “average” attitude was noticed while using Paint, Photopeach, Padlet, WordPress blog and Voicethread. Glogster Edu was boring for some students.
