Bring a Higher Level of Compassion to Your Teaching
Academic-related anxiety is common in high-achieving and struggling classrooms alike. So how can teachers calm students' fears and empower them as learners?
Educator Stacey Roshan found the answer with technology. In Tech with Heart, Stacey shares that the fight to be first, the pressure to be right, and the stress surrounding test scores were just a few of the many reasons she chose to flip her class.
Creating interactive video lessons for students to watch at home and shifting in-class time to focus on student needs, discussion, and collaborative practice allows you to . . .
Create more time for one-on-one interaction with students.
Quickly see where students are struggling.
Give all students (even introverts and those who need more time to process) the opportunity to share their voice and show their learning.
Using technology in the classroom isn't just about automation Tech with Heart shows you how to use edtech tools to humanize modern learning and help all learners to thrive.
