  • How can tools be used?The DART 1000 or First Year Experience Curriculum affords many opportunities for students to work collaboratively to research, make presentations, and synthesize information about relevant topics

  • My favorite tools are:Wikis - accessible web pages that afford opportunities for students to create and edit pagesPhoto Sharing - sites for sharing, downloading, and tagging photosMind Meister - site for creating and sharing mind maps

  • Example of a Wiki Copy the following web address to view an example of a Wiki that a group of students in DART 1000 could complete as a project based learning assignment for the Health and Wellness Module.

  • Web address for wiki

  • Photo SharingOne of the sites students can use for photo sharing in Students can upload, share, download, and tag favorite photos.

  • 1 way to use FlickrStudents can search the site for relevant, recent, or interesting photos to download for a presentation. Photos have been tagged to help the user find appropriate photos. Students could use the following for a presentation.

  • Student after 1 drink

  • After 2 drinks...

  • After 3 drinks...

  • After 4 drinks...

  • Mind mapping Students can use a mind map to show the relationships between ideas. Mind Meister is a site students can use for creating, collaborating, and sharing mind maps.

  • Example of mind mapPaste the following address for an example of a mind

  • A Final Word...All of these tools can be useful in helping students to create, communicate, collaborate, and share content. Many of our students are already using tools to create, collaborate, communicate, and share with friends. We just need to help them use these tools to learn.
