Fixed and Growth Mindsets
As the Instructional Tech Specialists, we were asked to share tech tools that could be used to pre-assess.
Here is the first one!
AnswerGarden is a fantastic feedback tool. Use it for real time audience participation, online brainstorming and classroom feedback.
Plant a question and invite participants to your AnswerGarden.
Their answers instantly form a growing word cloud!
I love the fact that when your garden is finished, it can then be exported to Wordle or Tagxedo!
Here are a few other features . . .
There are different modes when creating your AnswerGarden.
Brainstorm Mode - each person can submit an unlimited number of answers, including repeat answers. Repeat answers how the words grow!
Classroom Mode - each person can submit an unlimited number of answers, but the same word will only show up once.
Moderator Mode - answers are submitted to the AntiGarden, so then the creator of the garden must approve the entries.
Locked Mode - the garden is closed . . . no more entries can be submitted.
Here is an example.
