This blog is my attempt to share information with faculty, introducing new apps, websites, or other snippets of information that may be of use to faculty. I am also using it to keep track of projects I'm working on that might be good to reference in the future.

Harkness App - 8th graders made it!

Don't know how useful this web app will be to any teachers, but the story behind this is very cool.  I found this in the Chrome Store.  

The "Harkness App" was created by two 8th graders.  They did it themselves without any outside help, and it began as a project to help track involvement in their teachers Harkness discussions.  Instead of doing it manually, you can do it on a laptop, over the web, and then have it shared easily with students online.  This might be a very cool tool to track harkness discussions and share easily with students, while conserving paper.  Very cool app, especially as it was developed by some middle-schoolers.
