In this activity you will explore the use of an interactive image for informing and collecting feedback from an audience.
With access to a multitude of online resources, students can learn to become informed decision makers and stakeholders in their own learning. Use of online polls, surveys, and digital tools for collecting feedback can turn passive observers into active participants. Perhaps John Dewey said it best…
“The essence of the demand for freedom is the need of conditions which will enable an individual to make his own special contribution to a group interest, and to partake of its activities in such ways that social guidance shall be a matter of his own mental attitude, and not a mere authoritative dictation of his acts.”
Example: One School, One Book
Here is an example of using ThingLink to help a school community choose a common book for a One School, One Book project. The image uses multimedia and text to inform voters before utilizing Polldaddy to capture the vote. The image is useful for collecting input from community members of any age because it has built in multimedia supports.
