Simple, Yet Effective Ways to Engage Remotely with Students

In this session, teachers will learn how to use tools that will help them stay organized while engaging their students. 

Some of the topics discussed will include submitting assignments in Google Classroom, using Breakout Rooms, and creating Topic Folders. We will also learn about websites that allow you to use your Google Classroom roster to seamlessly assign work that can be auto-corrected to allow teachers more time for planning.

Some of the websites we will discuss include EdPuzzle (where students can be assessed while watching videos), Flipgrid (where you and the students can interact by speaking with each other or doing Speaking Presentations), Wordwall (a website that allows you to import a list of vocabulary or terms and gives students many choices for games to play using the words), Gimkit (a great way for students to practice vocabulary and terms all while competing using “money”) and Quizlet (which allows students to learn and play at their own pace, or live in class, and allows the teacher to monitor work that has been completed).

This is designed for teachers that are using technology, but are not necessarily “tech gurus”.

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, attendees will be able to prepare lessons that are simple, yet interactive.  They will be able to break up their class periods with quick games or brain breaks, all while keeping students learning.  The websites and programs that we discuss are effective for both in-person and remote learning.
