Get Inspired! Three Ways to Increase Student Engagement - Lesson Capture, LMS’s and Virtual Fieldtrips

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Find new ways to engage students using the things they already do in their free time!  Students watching a video of a math lesson is no different, in practice, than watching a YouTube video, and this can easily be done with lesson capture where, most importantly, content is viewed by students on devices they already have - computers, tablets, smart phones.  Adding in a Learning Management System (LMS) gives students the same format to interact with their peers and teachers online much like they do with their social networking sites - posting, responding, engaging with their peers.  Finally, taking the class on virtual fieldtrips helps them cross over country lines and time zones to connect with other classes using real-time video conference software just like when they chat with their friends or family abroad. Come learn how these can all be easily implemented without a lot of extra cost or time.
