A Likely Pair: Engaging Technologies and Student Achievement

  1. 1. A Likely Pair: Engaging Technologies and Student Achievement The Equity within the Classroom Conference University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI 03.31.14 A’Kena LongBenton, EdS, PMC Wayne State University akenalong@aol.com
  2. 2. Per J.D. Willms (2000), “…the theoretical literature argues that engagement and academic achievement go hand-in-hand” (p. 9 http://goo.gl/5Sf0hc). When instructors use technologies to teach and inform their instruction, then they will not become victims of shock when their students perhaps fail a course exam. Various technologies offer instructors a greater sense of certainty that they have taught their students the course content. Also, the below technologies allow instructors to determine how much their students know before the exam is given. Last, these technologies allow instructors an opportunity to innovatively assist their students in preparation for course exams. Workshop Abstract
  3. 3. This workshop will address interactive technologies and readily connect them to pedagogical practices across various disciplines. The following technologies will be introduced: Poll Everywhere, QuizBreak!, Quiz Revolution, StudyBlue, and SurveyMonkey. The technologies can be used as formative assessment tools and/or quiz previews. Also, teachers can give students web links so students can assess these technologies outside of school. As time permits, the aforementioned technologies will be introduced in a workshop format where instructors will actively participate in technology- based instructional activities. For example, using the StudyBlue tool, instructors will engage with the Celebrity Facts online quiz. Abstract cont.
  4. 4. As time permits, the aforementioned technologies will be introduced in a workshop format where instructors will actively participate in technology- based instructional activities. Also, instructors will digitize their formative assessments and post them onto a wiki page, http://goo.gl/ZFqUqI, for others to view and access. Content Format/Activities
  5. 5. Actively participate in a real-time technology-based poll Witness what the aforementioned technologies (Poll Everywhere, QuizBreak!, Quiz Revolution, StudyBlue, and SurveyMonkey) look like in practice. Brainstorm how they will use at least one of the formative assessment interactive technologies Observe how others will use these interactive technologies to improve student achievement Goals and Objectives

  16. 16. The technologies explored promote: active and independent learning; application; creativity; critical thinking; problem solving; student engagement; and reflection—not mere comprehension. Word of Caution: Soft skills need to be addressed when technologies are used, e.g., time management skills. There are countless technologies and distractions on the internet. If students are not instructor-guided and/or focused, then tons of unproductive hours can be spent on the web with no intellectual gains. Words of
  17. 17. Hopefully, you have had an opportunity to be engaged via technologies and learn how engagement is often a precursor to student achievement. By participating in this workshop, perhaps you will re- envision engagement, achievement, and especially how your students can access your course content at “anytime, any place any pace” (Governor Rick Snyder, 2011, http://goo.gl/BJ4wEW).
