Digital activities are all the rage right now. In our technology driven culture, I think technology in the classroom is here to stay. Even if you don’t have devices to use everyday, occasional use can still solve your problems! Here are five common teacher problems that are solved by using digital activities.
Low Engagement - Let’s face it. Some students would be happy to be buried in their laptops/ipads/phones all day. It can be hard to keep those students engaged in traditional activities, because they won’t participate. However, digital activities allow those students to use their technology while still participating in the learning activities.
Kids Lose Everything - My students seem to lose everything! If notes and notes and activities are saved to their personal Drives, they won’t get lost! …at least it will be harder to lose.
Not Enough Storage Space - Storage is a serious issue for me. I have files and files of activities that take up a whole filing cabinet. I’m moving to a very small classroom this year and have no idea where I’m going to store everything. Digital activities solve your storage issues!
|I have drawers and drawers that look like this. I kid you not.|
Too Much Grading - I get tired of grading. I also don’t have enough hours in a day to grade all of the student work that I want to. Google Forms has a “Quiz” feature that will grade for you. Flubaroo is an add-on that grades for you as well. The best part? They both automatically give statistics for you.
