Don't Put Your Phones Away: Using Cellphones to Engage Students in Real-time
Concurrent Session 4
Faculty will integrate technology with devices students already have in their pockets
Smartphones are an integral part of our student's lives and many times faculty require students to put their cells phones away. In this session, we will help faculty integrate technology students already have in their pockets by using Padlet, Kahoot, Zaption, and QR codes to help facilitate this integration. These apps will create another way for students to be interactive in the classroom. Padlet is a virtual wall that opens up the possibilities of ideas by inserting pictures, videos or web links. It has a built-in QR code and embedded code for students to interact real time using computers, phones or tablets. Kahoot creates a fun learning game in minutes made from a series of multiple-choice questions. It also gives the instructor the ability to survey the room on a current assignment in real time. Zaption transforms video-based learning with interactive content and tools that engage learners, deepen understanding, and track progress. It allows you to flip the classroom as well as use the video in real-time in your classroom. This session will offer concrete ways faculty can use Padlet Kahoot, Zaption and QR codes in the face-to-face classroom, the blended classroom and the online classroom. Participants will need 2-minute completed video, a laptop to create a Zaption video and Kahoot quiz, and a tablet or phone for Padlet.
Create an interactive video with Zaption to support your teaching.
