My Favourite BookWidgets Actions and Options
BookWidgets gives greater than thirty templates for creating interactive actions for college kids to finish on-line. A number of the templates are for conventional actions like matching pairs and reminiscence video games.

To search out these templates search for somewhat digicam icon subsequent to a template’s title. A bit of checkbox icon subsequent to a template’s title identifies it as one that provides automated scoring.
Talking of scoring, late on this previous faculty yr BookWidgets launched digital rubric templates. These can be utilized to create a rubric to connect to any exercise in BookWidgets. You need to use the rubrics to provide suggestions with or with out scores hooked up. There’s additionally an possibility to make use of emojis and symbols in your rubrics.
