How to Create Labeling Activities With Google Drawings and Classroom

Last week I hosted a webinar for a group that I'm working this  summer. One part of that webinar included making online activities for students. I included some of the typical things like Kahoot and Wizer but I also included a demonstration on how to use Google Drawings to make online labeling activities.

In the video that is embedded below I demonstrate how to use Google Drawings to create a labeling activity and then distribute it to students through Google Classroom. In the video I used the example of creating an activity in which students drag state names onto a blank map of New England. A variation on that activity would be to have students using the arrow tools in Google Drawings to draw connections between the labels and the states. Watch the video below to see how the whole process works including how students complete the activity in Google Classroom.

Teamimg - Collaborate to Make Interactive Images

Teamimg is a free tool that is a bit like Thinglink and Classtools' Image Annotator without the hyperlinks. Teamimg lets you upload an image and share it. Once uploaded you can click on the image to write comments and reply to the comments that other people have written. The comment threads can be expanded or collapsed to depending on your viewing needs.

In the following video I demonstrate how to use Teamimg to collaboratively comment on images.


Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for sharing Teamimg in one of his recent Ed Tech Digest posts.

Applications for Education
Teamimg could be a good tool for students to use to annotate all kinds of images, diagrams, and maps. As it doesn't require an email address or any student information, it can be used at any grade level. I can see Teamimg being used in a geography lesson to have students create annotated maps. In a biology lesson students could use Teamimg to make interactive diagrams of cells. In an art lesson students might use Teamimg to identify and label techniques or important aspects of a work of art.
