Popular television shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead offer second screen experiences called “Story Sync” that let viewers to engage with additional content on their tablets and laptops while they watch. Free online polling software can be used to quickly and easily create a similar experience for students in the classroom. In this workshop at OSU’s Innovate Conference, participants will see an example second screen experience, learn about student reactions to this approach, and create their own, which will be shared during the workshop.
Examples you can use
You can use the following videos and screenshots in the second screen experience you create as part of this workshop, or you can use your own. You can pause your video in the middle to ask a question, ask a question at the end, or both.
1. Forrest Gump – meeting Jenny
2. The King’s Speech
3. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
If you are participating in this conference, and you create a second screen experience, post a link to the video to watch (i.e. the first screen experience) and your Socrative.com room number in the comments so that we can share what you’ve made.
