Accounts for Students?
- You don’t technically need an account to publish a Tackk, although any that are created without an account expire after 7 days.
- Students under 13 can publish anonymously through the use of a code, provided by their teacher. If they want to go back and edit, they must be using the same device they created it on. Learn more here.
Example: Here is a Tackk I created to share information about TPACK. I used it for a course that I teach online, before using the Tackk I had all of the information on a single page in the course space, I thought the Tackk made the content more visually engaging and allowed others to easily add resources or comments.
What I love about it…
- Can easily be embedded in other webpages, blogs, or wikis
- You can embed many other tools (find some options here)
- Ease of creation and navigation
