The Fully Engaged Classroom Andy McCann West Aurora District 129 4th Grade Teacher
About Me Teach 4th Grade in West Aurora District 129 Have also taught 3rd and 5th grades Have experience using a variety of educational technologies I don’t work for eInstruction – I’ve tried to make this applicable to all brands
Why do we need to engage students?
How useful are interactive technologies in the classroom? The kids enjoy them, and they help them to retain more knowledge The kids enjoy them, but they can be a distraction There is no real change when using them They are too distracting to be effective [Default] [MC Any] [MC All]
Current Interactive Technology You Use
What do your students use at home?
How can we bring these things together?
Some tools to help bridge the gap Student responders About 1/5 the cost of an iPod touch 30 8gb iPods = $5250 30 clickers = $1200 Wireless slates About ¼ the cost of a IWB Easily shared by staff
We’ve got the stuff, now what can we do with it??
Using responders effectively requires little effort in preparation. Yes No
Why use responders? Good article in Ed. Leadership http://tiny.cc/3vaei

Area of a Rectangle A = L * W 35 cm 8 cm A = 35 * 8 A = 280 cm²
Area of a Square A = s² 9 mm A = 9² A = 81 mm²
Area of a trapezoid A = ½ h (a + b) a = 12 cm a = 5 in h = 10 cm h = 6 in b = 8 in b = 8 cm A = ½ * 6 (5 + 8) A = ½ * 6 (13) A = ½ * 78   or    A = 3(13) A = 39 in² A = ½ * 10 (12 + 8) A = ½ * 10 (20) A = ½ * 200 or A = 5 (20) A = 100 cm²
A = b * h is the formula for which of the following Area of a square Perimeter of rectangle Area of a parallelogram Area of a trapezoid
Area of a Triangle A = ½ b * h h = 9 mm  h = 8 cm b = 4 cm b = 6 mm A = ½ * 4 * 8 A = 2 * 8 or A = ½ * 32 A = 16 cm² A = ½ * 6 * 9 A = 3 * 9 or A = ½ * 54 A = 27 mm²
