In this hands-on and high energy masterclass, we will look at some of the most popular and simple tools that can be used to amplify teaching and learning in the classroom. While tools are important, understanding the pedagogical ways we can use them to transform teaching is even more critical, and this masterclass will lay out a path for allowing teachers and students to make meaning of content. By the end of the day, educators will have learned how to better use technology to support and amplify the learning experiences in their classrooms.
This masterclass will be built around the learning framework that helps educators make student thinking and learning visible, allows teachers to hear from every student and gives students a way to meaningfully share their work.
The session will include a look at
Formative Assessment Ideas
Differentiated Instruction Techniques
Demonstrations of Learning
