ThoughtSwap

altColorLogo2Overview:

ThoughtSwap allows students to submit thoughts anonymously to their teacher who can then release those thoughts to be distributed randomly. Students will then be able to consider another’s thoughts in a discussion where self-consciousness, social intimidation, and time pressure are minimized.

The main goal of the project is to provide a platform to classrooms teaching any age that supports dynamic classroom interactions centered around student discussion .

Possible Interactions:

One can ask students to submit multiple perspectives on a prompt, ask them to view the collection of thoughts a teacher receives, and organize them categorically, as well as ask them to argue another student’s thought they receive via distribution.

Initial Implementation:
StudentThoughts

Student view, composing thoughts

 

TeacherOrganize

Teacher view, organizing thoughts

 

ThoughtExchange

Student view, discussing other thoughts
