Interactive Lessons Using Technology


Live Session using Pear Deck
     Student 'voice' is a concern for many teachers.  Classes are filled with those students who always participate and have their hand raised.  But these are the same classes filled with students who sit back and let others do the talking for them.  How can we ensure these students are 'active' participants? One way to make sure that "all" students have a voice is to use an "interactive" digital tool such as Pear Deck, Nearpod, Formative & more.  These tools allow students to share their answers at the same time.  
Being actively engaged!
     
As teachers can see student answers in 'realtime' there are many advantages to using such tools. Talk about formative assessment! Immediate feedback from the teacher can clarify misconceptions on the spot. Conversations can also be extended beyond the topic depending on student activity.   There are drawing and dragging options too. 
 The lessons can be filled with a variety of multi-media which is engaging for pupils. Some tools allow audio, video, images and web content to be embedded right into your existing presentations.

      I've used various tools with students and their question at the end is always the same, "When can we do this again?"  When our students are engaged and enthusiastic they are sure to learn!  Students WANT to share what they know! 

What are some tools you use to make your lessons interactive?

  1. Hello! I am a college student studying elementary education. I love reading your blog! I have already read so many tips I will be sure to use when I graduate and get my own classroom! I especially like this post and learning about what technologies you use to get all students engaged. I also like how the teacher gets immediate feedback and can touch a little extra on topics that the class did not do as well on. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences!!
