Check out our new tool SYMBALOO EDU
Looking for a simple way for your students to share what they have found on the internet? Teachers at P.K.Yonge have introduced the students in their science classes to Symbaloo as a way to do PLE’s. A PLE is a student’s personal learning environment. A PLE diagram called “The Networked Student Processes and Tools: Taking Control and Responsibility for Learning” drawn by Wendy Drexler, better explains the benefits of a personal learning environment and how that allows the student to take responsibility of how they learn.
Wendy introduced Symbaloo as the platform for a PLE to Randy Hollinger. Randy, a 7th grade science teacher at P.K.Yonge, then introduced it to his class. Below is a video his student created to explain how she uses Symbaloo and other web applications.
Teachers in the US aren’t the only ones using Symbaloo to get organized and reach students. Teachers in France and Holland are using it as well. Digibord, a webmix created by a teacher in Holland, is currently being used by 40,000 teachers. If you are a teacher in Holland or France and would like to connect and share ideas, please click on the Symbaloo links below.
According to Rasmussen College, Symbaloo is a top application for tech savvy teachers.
Here at Symbaloo, we believe that our application is a great source for teachers and students regardless of the country. To help with a student’s education through technology gives us a great sense of achievement. Thank you to all of the teachers who are utilizing Symbaloo for educational purposes.
