Recently, I have been using it in my role as Project Manager of Global Youth Debates, a Flat Connections project (read more about this here).
In Global Youth Debates, teams from all over the world take part in an asychronous debate about a current issue - this year's theme is Global Peace and Security and the topic is, 'Revolution a Justifiable Means for Global Peace and Security'. Using Voicethread, learners record their arguments in stages; the opposing teams can then listen and respond, recording their opposition in the same place.
Part of my job is to organise the brackets - who argues against whom - in each round. To monitor the progress of each team, I have been using Split Screen as a management tool:
|Tracking Debate Progress|
My next job is to create new brackets for Round 1 proper and again, Split Screen has been really helpful:
|Organising New Brackets|
I could have completed both these tasks without Split Screen but this would have meant flicking between two windows - this is much quicker and easier.
Split Screen is free from the Chrome Store as Chrome extension.
