INTERACTIVE LEARNING WITH HOT POTATOES SOFTWARE BY : SAVERINUS KAKA NIM: 6910 0080
What is Hot Potatoes? Hot Potatoes was created by the Research and Development team at the University of Victoria Humanities Computing and Media Centre. Hot Potatoes enables us to create interactive multiple-choice, short- answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises. You can add a reading text and timer included in this program.
What is Hot Potatoes? Hot Potatoes is free of charge for publicly funded, non-profit, educational users who make their pages available on the web. Other users must pay for a licence.
Benefits to the learner by using Hot Potatoes The main difference between Hot Potatoes exercises and paper-based exercises is the immediate interactivity. For example, when using JQuiz, if you include useful, detailed feedback for every answer (correct and incorrect), then the learner not only has their existing knowledge tested but also learns as they work through the exercise. With a paper-based exercise they have to wait for for the teacher/trainer to mark it, (or check against a marking key). No teacher/trainer has the time to add helpful comments to all the correct and incorrect answers.
Benefits to the learner by using Hot Potatoes In Short: – Interactive – Immediate feedback – Can be repeated – Independent learning – Own level – Can be regarded as a ‘fun’ way of learning
Benefits to the teacher/trainer Exercises created with Hot Potatoes have great potential for classroom or self-access use. Hot Potatoes is often purely seen as a program for the teacher/trainer to create learning materials, but it can also be used with the learners to involve them in creating exercises. This of course depends upon the level of the learners, but JCross is a good place to start.
Benefits to the teacher/trainer – Can accommodate different levels within one teaching group – Add variety to teaching/learning materials – Can be created with a specific target group in mind – Reduced marking – Reduced photocopying – Availability of resources – The same exercise can be used for individual learning, pair working or group activities.
