I’ve created a folder showing how to embed your favorite sites into a formative, with step by step instructions for each site (with gifs and screenshots), and examples. I hope this is useful! Embedding is one of my favorite features of Formative
Desmos (calculators and activities)
Google Drive files (Sheets, Forms, audio, video etc)
I teach economics, so often need to embed graphs showing data. Two sites I like are:
https://ourworldindata.org/ which has interactive graphs using global data on a variety of topics. All the interactive graphs are embeddable; the height and width of the graphs needs to be adjusted to show properly.
https://www.gapminder.org/tools/ which allows the user to create their own graphs (several different types) using global data. The graphs are, again, interactive and embeddable with adjustments to the height and width.
Embedding implies adding a ‘live’ website right in the Formative. So, you would place the URL (for wherever you store that document online) into the embed code. Search for ‘embed’ in the Library and you can find LOTS of examples. I like to copy and paste the embed code that I see works and then just replace their URL with mine.
If however, you just want to upload the document straight into your Formative, you can do that, too. That option is on the bottom left of the box for adding items to the formative.
Be careful… ALL the kids will edit the same slide. Better would be to embed the link to the POST in your Google Classroom. That way when students click the Slide, each student can have their OWN. Another option would be to take a screenshot of the Slide and put it in a Show Your Work question that sttdents can write/type on.
