Teachers from around northern New Mexico have worked to make their classrooms technologically advanced and they shared their efforts on Nov. 6 at UNM-LA.
It was a follow-up session to the 21st Century Classroom workshop that was held July 19-22 at UNM-LA.
At the workshop, teach ers learned to use some of the latest techniques for using technology to engage their students. The training focused on the use of interactive whiteboards, Internet resources and student response devices that have been successfully incorporated into classrooms as well as discussions with experienced teachers who use technology to enhance their teaching methods.
Math teacher John Pawlak from Los Alamos High School has been using software provided by textbook companies to generate tests and quizzes that provide instant feedback to student and teacher.
The software can generate statistics that make it clear what percentage of the students are understanding the material and even track statistics for individual students. Pawlak said he is especially excited about the interactive “clickers” he is using with his students. Students are issued a clicker through which they respond to questions projected on an interactive screen. Students can see what percentage of the class has responded and what percentage answered correctly.
