On the finish of January TeacherMade added a bunch of recent options to their well-liked platform for creating on-line actions for college kids. Final week they added maybe one of the best function but, that’s the potential to create drag-and-drop actions together with your current PDFs and Phrase docs. Moreover, you possibly can create a complete drag-and-drop exercise from scratch within the TeacherMade exercise editor.
Creating drag-and-drop map actions was the very first thing that I considered after I noticed TeacherMade’s new exercise creation choice. So the primary drag-and-drop exercise that I made in TeacherMade was primarily based on a map of New England. To make the exercise I used a map and an inventory of states that I already had in a Google Doc. I downloaded that Google Doc as a PDF then uploaded to TeacherMade the place I then use the modifying instruments to create containers round every state’s title and a field (TeacherMade calls them touchdown zones) on every state to which the names ought to be dragged. A whole overview of this brief course of is out there in this video.
Like all TeacherMade actions, drag-and-drop actions might be robotically scored for you. To try this simply set and reply key and level values for every “touchdown zone” within the drag-and-drop actions that you simply create. That course of is printed within the video above.
Lastly, it is value noting that you do not have to be a terrific graphic designer to make handsome actions in TeacherMade. You should utilize one thing like Canva to search out a terrific worksheet template after which import it into TeacherMade to create a web based exercise to share together with your college students.
