It’s turned into really easy assessment for me and I have real data from this game that kids love and will play over and over and over.
Truth be told, even in the midst of pandemic teaching, I am not the most tech savvy person on the block. As a matter of fact, I have really resisted implementing it in my classroom, because I was under the false assumption that if I was using tech in my classroom, I was forgoing active music making opportunities that my students need to really live and breathe music fluency and literacy. You know, that whole when you choose to include something, you choose to exclude something else?
Well… I was wrong. Yes, I’m admitting it, right here and right now. Because as I’m learning as I talk to members of the community, and specifically today’s guest, technology can be a really useful tool in our classrooms, particularly when it comes to student engagement, differentiation, and assessment… all within the learning sequence framework.
Today on the podcast, I’m talking with community member Jennifer Timidaiski all about technology for student engagement.
Here’s what I’m sharing in today’s episode…
(1) How NearPod can be used as a tool for differentiation and assessment
(2) How using this tool in her classroom has helped Jennifer increase student engagement–both in person and virtually
(3) How she’s been using this technology to enhance the Learning Sequence Framework
