Building portable learning objects is the title of the blog, but what is a portable learning object? A portable learning object is a easy and fun plug and play learning activity.
I have two examples that I have created. The first is of the Auburn State Prison that was made using Thinglink. The intended use for this learning object is to give students a visual reference and link to more information about Auburn State Prison. This object can be posted as an easy icebreaker to the subject.
The second learning object I made was a lot more time consuming, but very fun for the students. I created a Jeopardy game using JeopardyLabs. This tool does cost $20 to purchase, but you can use it to create as many objects as you like. This object is intended to be used as a review and study tool for an entire unit. This item can be played by more than one classmate allowing them the opportunity to be a support network in study.
