What is the difference between a checklist and a choice board in a blended and personalized learning classroom?
The difference is simple. A checklist is something that you have to complete. For example, think about when you are packing for a trip. You make a list of all of the items that need to be packed as well as all of the chores that need to be complete before leaving the house. That is a checklist.
A choice board are 5C's activities (creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and connectedness) that can be used to showcase understanding of the content. For example, you are on vacation, you generate a list of activities that you would like to do while at the resort. You don't have to complete all of the items on the list but rather you get to pick and choose which ones would work best for you.
Below are samples of a checklist and a choice board.

Last week, while working with a team of educators from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, a couple of educators came up to me and asked if there were any new presentation tools that would replace PowerPoints. I quickly went to my Edshelf and showcased twenty-five new presentation tools that they could use within the classroom setting. Each one of the teachers took a different tool and they started to explore and learn more about how to use the online program as a way to showcase understanding of unit, theme, or standard.
Below is the sample list that I provided to the teachers. If you would like to follow or save the list to share with your classroom, just follow me on EdShelf by clicking on this link.
