Technology in the Classroom

A short video clip that demonstrates how technology is being used in a local high school. Interestingly the purpose for the use of technology is connected with well being and class participation.

I (Yiola) am currently preparing a “technology day” conference that will emphasize and highlight the use of technology is classrooms for our student teachers. I like the examples shared in the clip. I will be sure to share the experiences of technology day that will take place next term.

One thought on “Technology in the Classroom

  1. Great to see that CTV is highlighting some of the practices that great teachers have been doing for a while now (Poll Everywhere is a great tool!)…it is curious to me though that these tools are being used to help students “hide” their misunderstandings or questions. I would hope that teachers can also work to inspire a growth mindset their classrooms so that the entire learning community could see “not knowing” as a asset and a place to grow from, rather than a deficit and something to fear.
