How to create class and assignment boards.

#TackkEdu #TackkTips

Add tags in the Tackk or under 'Tackk options' in the editor.

#TackkTip: Collect, sort and see your students' assignments on a class board.

Every day we see teachers using Tackks to outline project requirements and document formatting, provide resource links and embed videos. There's nothing like seeing 30 Magellan posts populate the "latest" feed in the middle of the day.

But did you know that you can also collect and organize your students' work? It's super simple too.

Boards are collections of Tackks, tiled as thumbnails on the screen. Boards are created when you add tags to your Tackk. Tag it "#Gettysburg Address" and your Tackk will show up on the Gettysburg Address board (see?). You can do the same thing for your classroom and assignments.

Follow these three steps:

1. Decide how you want to organize your students' Tackks. Some teachers use their classroom names or course sections (i.e., Ms. Gordimer, History 3), others use the assignment name or a combination (i.e., PeaceDay2013). Choose a convention and stick to it.

2. Show your students how to tag their Tackks. Piece of cake! Instruct your students to select the 'Options' tab in the editor (4th tab), where it says "Tackkboards." Click and start typing. Tackk will auto-suggest tags. You should give students conventions and specifications to follow for your use. *Note: you can also add #tags directly into the body of the Tackk which will also add that Tackk to the related board.

3. Include tagging specifications and conventions in each assignment. Tell students what to tag their Tackks for every assignment. Keep in mind: you can use multiple tags. Consider requiring students to tag your name, course section and assignment name. You, the teacher, can then collect all Tackks under your name and sort them per course section and filter them by assignment.

*Note: Tackks must be public to appear on boards. If you're looking for more ways to organize and submit work, click here.

But does the main tackk board have to be public? Or all portions of the projects have to be set to public?

@kristigreeson Tackks (single pages) can be set to private or public. Private Tackks cannot be found by any search engines.

You can still share links to private Tackks with anyone you want though - and they will still be able to see it.

Let us know if you have any other q's!

Here's a good example of a a business teacher who asks students to use his name as a tag: https://tackk.com/board/mr-coakley
