I was quite excited to hear about a tool called InfuseLearning from my friend and former colleague Remke Langendonck.
Students go to student.infuselearning.com and enter the teacher’s room number and their name.
Once the teachers presses the “Draw Response” button, the drawing board opens on the student’s device with rudimentary drawing tools like color, line thickness, undo, delete and the student begins to sketch their answer.
When students have finished their response, the press the “submit” button and their response is sent to the teacher.
The teacher can monitor student progress during the response time by seeing who’s connected and in the room, and whether they’ve submitted (names turn gray once response is submitted). All student responses can be viewed as thumbnails on the teacher’s question dashboard by selecting “Images” and pressing “Save Results” downloads a PDF with each student name and their sketch on a separate page.
This kind of response system could work really well in any area where you’d like students to draw or hand-write or sketch a response that you’d like to capture and/or save. Immediately I’m thinking drawing a structure of a cell in science, writing Chinese characters, drawing a graph in economics, or solving a geometry problem in math.
What ideas do you have for using InfuseLearning Draw Response?
