Giving all students a voice in the classroom, an opportunity for formative assessment, for query, and to have their ideas valued have new possibilities thanks to the participatory nature of web based tools. In this one credit self-paced/ facilitated course, K-12 teachers will learn how to use digital tools to make each student’s voice visible and valued. Teachers will identify the characteristics of web based tools and review selection criteria for tools to use in their own classroom while considering student accessibility and privacy. Teachers will explore a range of web based tools, select web based tools to apply to teaching and learning, and create an instructional product or sample student product using each tool. Teachers have the opportunity through this course to apply technology to their classroom, reflect collectively on their practice, and experience the impact that technology can make to teaching and learning.
