Effective educators can use students’ own devices in the classroom to increase student engagement and help students master and apply the subject matter in ways a textbook never could.
(PRWEB) January 09, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment of real educators using students’ technological devices in the classrooms to increase student engagement and learning. The video segment is available to all educators as part of “Strategy of the Week,” a weekly publication with teaching strategies to increase student engagement, achievement and success.
“Using technology in the classroom is essential to help students develop the skills they will need to excel in 21st century jobs,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Effective educators can use students’ own devices in the classroom to increase student engagement and help students master and apply the subject matter in ways a textbook never could.”
In this video segment, educators will see a secondary teacher in Georgia utilizing students’ personal technological devices as research tools and part of a lesson activity to increase student engagement and make content more relevant.
