Some educators are referring to annotated digital images of student math problems as #mathsnaps. You can capture and archive student thinking within minutes! Google Keep is such an easy way to accomplish this!
Why Use Google Keep?
- Take a photograph
- Add annotations to the image
- Record their thinking
- Receive a transcript to edit and revise
- Share with a teacher
- Collaborate with a colleague
- Add links to websites or documents
- Receive feedback
- Insert Keep Notes into Google Docs, Drawings or Slides
- Save in The Cloud
I used the FREE screen recorder on IOS 11 to create this short video tutorial.
The next time you distribute student tests or quizzes, or just want a quick formative assessment, consider asking students to demonstrate their understanding and corrections by using Google Keep. It’s free. It’s easy. And, it’s fun! The more students talk about math the more they will increase their understanding and their standardized test scores! And, I know how much students care about those test scores 😉
