Think about what students do outside of school with their tech: Snapchat, Instgram, Fantasy Sports, making YouTube Videos and Vines. What are they doing? They are creating with their technology!
While retrieving information and skill building can be excellent uses of technology in the classroom, students have a desire to create when they use tech. There are several simple tools to allow this creativity to happen academically inside and outside of your classroom. How to videos, Infographics, Posters, Slide Presentations, and more.
If you are attending FETC this year, there will be several sessions to get you started down this path. Here are a few to check out!
