ITT 5 – Use Rizzoma for Collaboration
Sure, there are plenty of tools to collaborate on the web. For many, Facebook or other social networks may be sufficient. What if you could communicate, share, and prioritize from one website – for FREE? Rizzoma might be your answer.
I see this being helpful in two distinct ways:
- For Staff
- Use with members of a common grade team or content to establish goals, conversations, and information that will help build your instruction and save time by distributing tasks (and sharing creations).
- Team-based projects can easily be facilitated using this website – no more confusing email chains of which some people accidently get ommited.
- Consistently monitor student progress and update team members on specific issues immediately.
- For Students
- Use Rizzoma for collaborating on projects and research papers. Many students turn to Facebook, but also then get distracted by what Facebook displays.
- If you, as the teacher, are included in the Rizzoma group, you can monitor progress of the groups and step in to help when necessary.
- Consider having students create content using this collaborative method. More likely than not, students will be required to work like this once they reach the working world.
It is a really neat website that offers a lot of integration accross different platforms. Watch the informational video below:
