Specialization: Spanish, Elementary
Rocking: Communication and Commitment
Mr. McCright masters TackkEdu with lessons plans, practice links, and contact forms. Starting from scratch, McCright has created a variety of Spanish grammar and vocabulary lessons, some using Tackk as the creation tool, and some incorporating other helpful sites.
A unique trait that McCright showcases on his profile is his commitment to his students' education. Many Tackks have practice puzzles and flashcards for the students to access wherever they are with one click of a mouse. At the end of his Tackks, McCright includes a contact form with the prompt "get in touch." He wants both students and parents to share their comments with him when reviewing a particular lesson. Check 'em out!
Rockstar #2: Georg Coakley - @Mr_Coakley
Specialization: Business and IT, High School
Rocking: Organization and Stream
Mr. Coakley has used his Tackk knowledge to master organized student submission. Using our tagging feature, his students automatically create one board as a home for each submission by using the same tag (e.g. #Mr-Coakley).
Coakley perfectly executes two use cases for Stream within his Tackks. First, he directs students to post the url of their completed assignment within the Stream of the original assignment Tackk. Second, Coakley uses Stream to ask for students' thoughts after learning the lesson. Peek into Coakley's lessons below!
Rockstar #3: Michelle Pacansky-Brock - @brocansky
Specialization: Photography, Higher Education
Rocking: Observance and Clarity
Ms. Pacansky-Brock is a Tackk rockstar simply because of her attention to detail. She excels in using small individual features that make a big difference in her content. Her profile is used as an overview of what her college class will be learning from unit to unit. Because each unit introduction has the same format, she uses the duplicate Tackk feature to keep the unit description clear.
Furthermore, within her Tackks, she incorporates a variety of Tackk features like photos from our 500px photo search and hyperlinked text. More notably, Pacansky-Brock embeds videos to share her unit announcements and uses the RSVP widget to collect responses on a weekly Google+ Hangout. Dive into her Tackks below!
