This interactive presentation explores how teachers can leverage technology to personalize and create an environment where learning takes center stage. To facilitate this student-centered experience, tech tools provide both a snapshot of individual learner's needs as well as an overview of how the class is performing as a whole. Participants will use tools such as EDpuzzle, Pear Deck, and Plickers to actively participate in the session.

When equipped with the right tools, teachers can truly individualize and customize the learning experience for each student. What’s more, effectively integrating technology into the classroom can bring compassion back into an otherwise overly stressed environment by freeing time for the teacher to provide individual student support, interact with them, and observe them in the process of learning.

In addition, technology can help put students in the driver-seat, allowing them to control the pace and depth of their learning. In order to help facilitate this kind of student-centered experience, tech tools can provide both a snapshot of each individual learner's needs as well as an overview of how the class is performing as a whole.

With the increasing demand to make courses more rigorous and cover more material, technology can enable the teacher to get to know students on a more personal level. This session will share real classroom examples of effective integration of tools such as EDpuzzle, Pear Deck, and Plickers, along with best practices for implementation.

In this session, participants will learn:
• How can teachers shift their classroom to a student-centered learning environment and foster a culture of collaborative learning?
• How can teachers use technology to personalize, both inside and outside of the classroom?
• How can teachers use technology to pre-identify individual student and class needs and differentiate the learning experience?
