** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Just the BEST. Wall WisherWallwisher
is a place where students can go and put up "post it notes" about a topic. I can think of many ways to use Wallwisher with students but none better than getting students to reply about what they want to learn in the course or what they liked best about a course. It is a tremendously powerful tool for soliciting student feedback.
Needs surveys are important and can be pre, during and post course. They allow the teacher to alter the curriculum and tailor it to the student's learning style, levels, beliefs and motivation. HERE
is a nice presentation I use with my graduate students about Needs Analysis.
Teachers can simply post up a simple question and let students reply in short post its. Example questions might be - "What do you like best / hate about the textbook units?" "How do you learn best?" "What should we do more of in class?" "What is your favorite topic?" etc....
