The following 3 steps will help you get you and your students started smoothly:
- Prepare before the class - have 1-2 questions live in your Ziplet class, and take note of your 6-digit class code.
- Introduce Ziplet to your students in class - the 'how' and 'why' of using Ziplet. Here's 3 examples:
Ziplet will support your learning
"Your responses will help me to help you, and allow me to focus my teaching in areas you need support"
Introducing Ziplet this way gives students confidence that their answer will be used to help them, by giving you insight into where they need support. This also shows that Ziplet can be the channel to get the help that they really need.
Ziplet lets you shape your learning
“Your responses will help me to understand how you learn best and what activities you find most engaging.”
Including this as part of your Ziplet introduction lets students know that they have a voice in the direction of their learning.
Letting students know that they can provide input can also encourage students to take greater ownership.
Ziplet lets me reflect as a teacher
“Your responses will help me to be a better teacher. Like you, I need to know and understand to be my best.”
Letting students know that you will be using Ziplet for your own personal reflection is a great way to let them know that their feedback is valued and important to you.
