Technology: Apps for Student Engagement and Assessment , Phyllis Fleming, Jane Ostacher, Brian Richards
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
This workshop will cover the use of quizzing apps Socrative and Nearpod, which encourage student engagement in the classroom and provide timely assessment of course material. Research has shown that low-stakes frequent quizzing promotes learning and retention of class material. All apps are free and are supported on multiple platforms. Bring your own device, smartphone or tablet. We will have some loaner mobile devices but not enough for all participants.
As a result of participating, you will be able to: (1) Actively engage students during the entire class period, (2) Gauge the level of student understanding of the course material being presented, (3) Provide prompt feedback to students about their learning and (4) Recognize when to adjust teaching methods and/or student learning behaviors to ensure greater student learning.
