Engaging students with exciting digital content is possible with virtually any classroom set up. This course will show educators how to incorporate video, images, even sounds and songs into lessons that are designed to be delivered in a classroom that has very limited technology and, potentially, no interactive tools. Using the same pedagogical research and reasoning that serve as a basis for developing lessons for the classroom with interactive technology, participants in this course will learn how to integrate digital content into solid lessons and adjust the delivery to match the capabilities in their classrooms. Discovery Education Professional Development master teachers will address alternative solutions in one-computer classrooms, no computer classrooms, LCD projector classrooms, even classroom with just an overhead projector! Develop multimedia presentations and materials then find ways to present them that maintain their interactivity. Don’t let your classroom technology hamper your creativity – bring your lessons to life in a low-tech environment.
By the completion of this session participants will be able to:
They are passionate about what they do, and that is one thing I appreciate about Discovery Education Professional Development ..... these folks really believe in what they are doing and they know their stuff and they know the content.
