Transcript of Using Technology to Engage Students

Introduction
An educator can know their subject inside and out, but unless they are able to connect to their students, not much learning will take place. This is where technology comes in. Technology in the classrooms allows the students to access information and gives them tools for creativity. For example, rather than writing a boring essay, students can search the web and use many modes of presentations to convey their topic. Graphics, research, and even things like spell check are readily available to students, making class time more engaging and meaningful.

With the 21st century in full swing, educators need to stay up to date with the current technology in order to best engage their students. If the students wish to be on their phones in class, the teachers need to make their lessons more appealing. In my future classroom, I will do my best with the resources I have (quite a few, actually), to make my classroom a fun learning environment. Resources such as the ones noted, give students the freedom to learn and present in a way that suits them best. What more could a teacher ask for?
Desmos
Online math tool that functions as a calculator and graphing tool, free of charge. It would work especially well in any math classroom that has a limited supply of math tools. Students can access it on a pc or mobile device. It would greatly influence the classroom and homework. With the proper tools, the students will be more engaged and ready to learn.
Evernote
Conclusion
Students can thoroughly organize classwork, take screen shots , pictures, and take quick notes. It can be used during class lectures or for study groups. It engages students because it can be used on a pc or a mobile device.
Kahoot! is perfect for in class quizzes and questionnaires. It is set up like a game. It allows teachers to see how the students are progressing, while being a fun, interactive game for the class.
