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

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.
