Abstract: Much of learning no longer takes place in a common classroom with a chalkboard. To better engage the new generation of students in active learning, the integration of simple technology tools can help meet student needs in a variety of content areas. Being that active learning is student-centered, we want to show how to put the technology in the students’ hands. Students involved in critical thinking can utilize free online support tools to help them express themselves and the ideas they form in their minds. This session will include both the basics of active learning and the difference between integrating technology and simply using technology in your classroom. Audience participation will include interacting with online tools and the discussion presentation by utilizing personal devices (smart phones, iPads, laptops). Devices with Internet connection will be useful for audience participation during this presentation.
