Day 2: Write about one piece of technology that you would like to try this year, and why. You might also write about what you’re hoping to see out of this edtech integration.
Yesterday’s post dealt with my goals for this school year. One of my goals was to increase student engagement and inquiry. I know of just the right piece of technology that I can use in my classes to meet this goal!
At EdCamp Hudson Valley, Melissa Seideman (Not Another History Teacher and @mseideman) did a session about mobile devices in the classroom. One of the items she discussed was Infuse Learning. Infuse Learning is a student response system which is web based so you can use it with computers or smart phones.
Teachers can create a variety of assessments such as:
- Draw response
- Multiple Choice
- Sort in Order
- Open Ended Text
- Likert Scale (1-5)
Some of the ways that I might be using Infuse Learning in my classes are:
- Bell Ringers
- Checks for Understanding
- Regents Review
- Review Games
- Exit Tickets
