Prism Scholarslab – Tech Tip Tuesday

Prism Scholarslab can best be summed up by it’s tagline: A TOOL FOR COLLABORATIVE INTERPRETATION OF TEXTS. It does exactly that and it does it very well.

Whether you’re teaching;

  • year one students to recognise vowels and consonants
  • year four students nouns, verbs and adjectives
  • Year 10 students the difference between a simile and a metaphor

If your students ever do any reading, there’s something in this for you!

Using Prism is a three step process:

Step 1. Teacher pastes the text to be analysed into prism.

Step 2. Students highlight the words based on which category they belong in.

Step 3. The collective effort of the group can be visualised.

My 8 second demonstration of Step 2 and 3 looks like this.

 

As usual, here’s a video demo of how you can go from login to lesson in under three minutes. It’s certainly one of the easiest tools I’ve ever used. Check it out.

That’s Prism Scholarslab. I’d love to hear what you think, particularly how you think you might use it in your classroom. Comments below.
