What is Drag&Drop?

Drag&Drop is an element used in interactive worksheets. Its technique involves dragging the objects to the desired locations.

In modern realities, the technique is widely used and is one of the main ways of interaction. It is noteworthy that it is used most often in educational practice as it helps in mastering many skills. 

Why use Drag&Drop?

Drag&Drop activities help students improve concentration. They train visual memory and strengthen short-term memory by classifying objects and dragging them into columns.

Students learn how to pay attention to detail develop the ability to find similarities and differences in objects. In many ways using these activities enrich vocabulary.

The most common examples of drag-and-drop actions are moving an object across the screen or moving an object to a directory. Here are some ways of using Drag&Drop elements:

  • Compile matching test. Students can group objects according to specific types and properties. For example, combine dates with events, works with their authors, etc.
  • Create sequence reconstruction test. Establish a sequence of events, steps, procedures, and information. For example, in social studies lessons, students might arrange events in chronological order; in literature lessons, sequence a story; in language lessons, place words in grammatical order of a sentence; in math lessons, solve sequences, etc.
  • Model and construct. The student can move visual objects to create teacher-defined or invented new things from a set of parts.
  • Move an object from one place on the screen to another. For example, a geographical map is displayed on the screen. The student drags places from a particular "storehouse" the notation of minerals, names of cities, countries, etc., and drops on the needed part of the map.
  • Sorting tasks. Students can sort geographical names (continents, countries, cities, oceans), animal species (domestic and wild), grammatical structures such as singular or plural, male and female, etc.
