Classroom Technology--- Assessment, Impact, and Tools
Length: 50 minutes
Session offered by Division 2. The college classroom environment is changing radically as social media, online assessments, and response technologies are becoming more readily available. By virtue of the nature of our subject matter, psychology instructors have a unique ability to bring novel technological tools into our classrooms for activities ranging from videos to dynamic presentations. We also are uniquely equipped to assess the impact of our teaching methods on our students. In this symposium, presenters will share their experiences with bringing innovative methods of student engagement into the classroom ranging from use of social media to response clickers. Each presenter will share practical tools that instructors can incorporate into their own teaching so that even the most techno-phobic participants should come away from the symposium with several new hands-on tools to revitalize their own classroom instruction and assessment methods.
