Encouraging students to share their voice and express their learning in relevant ways is critical to today’s diverse classrooms. As many teachers understand, students who have autonomy over their learning and an ability to voice themselves, are more engaged in their learning process and present in the classroom. Not only does this benefit them throughout life, it also makes the classroom experience more engaging and fun!
In this edWebinar, hear about amazing tools for student creation that enable students to express their unique voices. We’ll discuss how to use time-tested tools like PowerPoint in new and exciting ways. We’ll also show you a student favorite: Sway, an easy-to-use digital storytelling app for creating interactive reports, presentations, personal stories and more. Additionally, we’ll share tips and tricks for student video creation. Plus, hear how you can leverage Flipgrid to encourage students to verbalize their learning and engage in social learning.
This presentation will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation. This edWebinar will prepare you with tools your students will be excited to use!
