Boost Student Engagement with Book Creator
April 8, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
A 2019 study by Gallup concluded that “Creativity in learning produces positive critical outcomes for students, which are further enhanced when teachers leverage the full potential of technology.”
My students were struggling with learning and motivation. My presentation will show how introducing creative technology to my students gave them voice and choice, and set them on a path to becoming much more engaged in their learning.
