Choosing The Right Adaptive Learning Tool #edtech #education

Find out how adaptive learning solutions are helping teachers target instruction and use data more effectively—and how they’re helping students learn.

I am going to focus on my favorite from this list, which is Leverage a Google Slide Template to Collect Student Work.

I really like the idea of students creating a digital portfolio through Google Sites. This allows students to have a somewhat permanent record of what they accomplished in class. Many times at the end of the school year, I witnessed all I had taught them, quite literally get thrown in the garbage/recycling. This allows students access to their work after the fact as well as provides a snapshot of what was learned at the end of the year.

Recently I featured an article on Adobe Spark, an online video creation tool. However, in the past I have also recommended WeVideo, which is also an excellent tool. However, WeVideo does offer a premium version with more features for a price.  This article is not meant to compare WeVideo with Adobe Spark, but it is meant to show those of you who have seen Adobe Spark, what WeVideo can offer.
