Seven Good Student Response Systems That Work On All Devices. Earlier today I received an email from someone who had found this comparison chart of student response tools.

Seven Good Student Response Systems That Work On All Devices

He was interested in learning a bit more about each of them beyond what was in the chart so I put together this collection of information about popular student response tools. Each of these tools can be used on iPads, Android tablets, and in the web browser on your laptop or Chromebook. Infuse Learning is a free student response system that works with any Internet-connected device.

Part one of a two-part article. Flipping channels one rainy Saturday afternoon, I happened on the scene in the movie Legally Blonde where Elle (Reese Witherspoon) is in her first law school class. The professor poses an elaborate interrogation question and calls on Elle, who is clearly unprepared to answer. The professor next calls on Elle’s nemesis, asking whether Elle has answered the question correctly and why her response was correct or incorrect. This Socratic-style questioning technique is highly effective at managing student response rates (strategy 26 on the Marzano Learning Map) and engaging students in class discussions (Design Question 5: What will I do to engage my students?) The strategy works like this: 1. 2. . • Correct. . • Partially correct. . • Incorrect. 3. 4. 12 Easy Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom, Even for Technophobic Teachers.

Included: Nineteen activities and nearly 50 Web sites. Integrating technology into the curriculum is a priority -- if not a mandate -- in most schools today. Most educational technology experts agree, however, that technology should be integrated, not as a separate subject or as a once-in-a-while project, but as a tool to promote and extend student learning on a daily basis. The challenge, of course, is in finding ways to use technology -- and to help students use it -- that don't take time away from core subjects. 52 Of The Best Apps For Your Classroom In 2015. 52 Of The Best Apps For Your Classroom In 2015 by TeachThought Staff This post was sponsored by CK-12, a non-profit foundation that creates and aggregates high quality curated STEM content.

How to Integrate Technology. When technology integration in the classroom is seamless and thoughtful, students not only become more engaged, they begin to take more control over their own learning, too.

How to Integrate Technology

Effective tech integration changes classroom dynamics, encouraging student-centered project-based learning. Think about how you are using technology with your students. Are they employing technology daily in the classroom, using a variety of tools to complete assignments and create projects that show a deep understanding of content? If your answer is "No," is it because you lack enough access to technology? Is it because you don't feel ready? This article contains the following sections: Handhelds Go to Class: Tim table of teacher indicators. Tim table of student indicators. Technology Integration Matrix.

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students.

Technology Integration Matrix

The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below. We appreciate your feedback.
