Instructional Ideas

  1. Use Livestream for e-field trips. Teachers can use the search bar in the app to find live and recorded events that pertain to a lesson’s content. Then, teachers can have students write their thoughts and experiences about the event using a function-based app (e.g., Quickoffice, CloudOn, Bamboo Paper, or Inkflow) and submit their assignments over email, by posting them to a classroom learning community (e.g., Edmodo or Schoology), or sharing them on a cloud (e.g., Dropbox or Google Drive).
  2. As a class, contact an expert in a field and ask that person to have a discussion with the class using the Livestream feature in this app. To prepare for the discussion, teachers can have their students compose questions for the expert to answer.
  3. Teachers can place students in small groups to complete a mini-research project and presentation by assigning them a specific research topic. Using apps like iThoughtsHD, Inkflow, or SimpleMind+, students can collaboratively research their topic and plan their presentation, and then students can compile their work into a recorded presentation. Once students have created their presentations, they can have a Livestream Day in which students broadcast their presentation for classmates to view. To make the Livestream Day valuable for all students, hold students accountable for watching their classmates’ presentations by having them complete a 3-2-1 graphic organizer. To complete this graphic organizer, students will have to document three facts that were presented, two opinions that were presented, and one question they have about the topic. To conclude each presentation, teachers can require students to ask the presenters their questions and allow the presenters to respond.
