Motivating Digital Learners
“Instant feedback is one of the big items that students want,” says teacher Jared Campbell of Melbourne, Florida. Campbell, one of our SuperStar presenters for the big LERN annual conference in New Orleans, Dec. 2-5, will speak on Motivating Digital Natives. He will demonstrate how to use text messaging in class to involve your participants.
“They love knowing that they know something and will put a lot more skin in the game if they find that they don’t know something,” Campbell says. “I’ve watched students come to life in all sorts of subjects when a response system is used. The trick is finding the balance of when, and how often, to use a response system.”
