Technological advances have changed the way we teach today. Whether it is cultivating participation through real-time surveys or utilizing virtual labs to enhance comprehension, digital tools allow us to connect with students in ways we never thought possible. We want to partner with instructors to find the most useful instruments for teaching effectiveness. If you have a favorite app, program, or technique, please sent it our way so we can share it with others.
Here are a few of our most used tools:
- Zoom: Free video conferencing program which allows you to teach, record, or advise students remotely.
- Canva: Not to be confused with Canvas, Canva is a website where you can easily design attractive and engaging images to use in the classroom or online.
- Microsoft Sway: This tool allows you to create interactive presentations with embedded images, text, and videos. It is a great way to build timelines!
- Kahoot!: Create questionnaires, surveys, or even a trivia game for active participation in the classroom. Students participate on mobile devices and feedback is immediate.
- Flipgrid: Interactive video discussion program allows you to collect and present student responses all in one place.
