Edutech for Teachers

Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Gamify Learning with Edtech Bingo


bingoI’ve spent a great deal of time this summer preparing and facilitating professional development for teachers involving the integration of iPads into the classroom. So when I inadvertently came across this really neat iPad Bingo visual while searching for edtech infographics on Pinterest, I knew I had to further investigate this concept.

Well, my surfing resulted in the following: Media technology specialist Josh Borzick from Oak Creek, Wisconsin created the iPad Bingo site to provide teachers with integration ideas related to six apps—Google Drive, Skitch, 30 Hands, Popplet, Doceri and Touchcast. The page includes the iPad Bingo card, which contains a set of activities for students to learn how to utilize each app at varying degrees of difficulty.

What’s more—the iPad Bingo site contains tons of bonus resources related to each app—tutorials, examples and additional integration ideas as well as iPad tips and tricks and other recommended apps. Yeah, it’s pretty much a treasure trove of edtech goodness!

Borzick claims on his site that “This is good stuff!” I couldn’t agree more! What a super cool idea! Check it out for yourself!

Classroom Connection:

Use the iPad Bingo card concept (and/or the actual example itself) to encourage teachers and students to learn how to use various apps for educational and productivity purposes. If you don’t have access to iPads or other mobile devices—don’t sweat it. The best part about this idea is that it can be adapted to any web tool or desktop application that is available in your learning environment.

If multiple apps seems overwhelming, another option would be to create a Bingo card focusing on one app or tool. You could even suggest digital projects related to a particular topic or theme and challenge your students to select the tool(s) necessary to demonstrate their knowledge and creativity.
