3D GameLab: Engaging by Design – Groups using Trillo

In my quest for badge based experiences, I am working my way through the Engaging by Design quests for teachers offered at 3DGameLab.  I’ve been exploring Trillo which is a basic online project management organizational tool.  Here is what I like about it:

  • It uses Google to sign in
  • I can collaborate with colleagues
  • Its web based so I can access it anytime & anywhere
  • I like the drop and drag of tasks for a project so I can have my to do list, in progress list, and completed lists.
  • I like that you can add files from drive and web addresses for research
  • I am planning on using this with a fellow teacher to organize our summer project for aligning curriculum
  • I can see using this with older students on a collaborative project for research.

Below I have a screen shot of my initial planning for this summer curriculum alignment project.
