Education technology is here to stay. Teachers, parents, and principals today recognize how technology can aid in learning and boost achievement. This is not possible, however, if students are not deeply engaging with their digital curricula.
But how do you know if your students are really engaged with the material? And how can you be sure? We will explore this question in our free webinar on October 7 at 8 a.m. Pacific time with Columbia University Teachers College Professor Ryan Baker and Research Associate Jaclyn Occumpaugh, who are leading researchers in the fields of human-computer interaction.
The webinar is open to anyone, but will be most useful to administrators and teachers who are considering education technology for their classrooms. Here are three reasons to register for the webinar:
- Get a more rigorous understanding of what student engagement really means so you can select digital tools that are not merely entertaining but have high instructional value.
- Learn more about formal protocols that measure engagement levels so you can select blended learning programs that help increase instruction time without having to extend the school day.
- Take this unique opportunity to hear directly from research experts and ask questions about the relationship of technology and student engagement.
