I believe it is important to utilize technologies that students consider relevant and connected to the "real world." Two technologies I have recently integrated into my classroom are Promethean Acti-Votes and cell phone texting. Acti-Votes allow students to use a wireless device to answer a variety of questions displayed on the Active Board. Student responses are anonymously displayed so students get instant feedback within a safe environment. The Promethean technology allows the whole class to participate on Study Island providing valuable assessment data for students, parents, and teacher. I also use "Poll Everywhere" website where I can create an array of surveys and questions allowing students to anonymously text responses. The site instantly tallies data and displays a variety of graphs in real time as the students respond.
