At this year’s Colonial Technology Conference, where the focus was on blended learning, Rodel Teacher Council member Joe Evans brought his signature brand of motivational, tech-fueled energy.

Evans, a math instructor and digital learning teacher at Delcastle Technical High School, presented Using Instructional Technology to Motivate and Engage Student Learners
during the daylong conference.

Here’s the description from Joe’s session:

Using GoFormative, Plickers and Quizziz , colleagues will explore and learn how to effectively and efficiently use instructional technology tools to address students’ weaknesses and strengths in a timely and efficient manner; in addition, motivate and engage students in the learning process. Colleagues will walk away from the instructional technology presentation with a few instructional technology tools that work directly with their curriculum.

Of GoFormative, Joe says: “Create incredible online assessments, classwork or homework.”

For Plickers, he describes a “Powerful simple tool that collects real-time formative assessment data without the need of student devices.”

On Quizziz: “It is an awesome multiplayer formative assessment quiz game for classrooms.”
