Ep.95 Engagement for All Classrooms

January 15, 2021

This is the first half of our conversation with Dorean Dow on student engagement. Within this episode, Dorean focuses on the strategic design of lessons. Before we even think about the tech, we need to think about the What, Why, How, Accessibility & Incentives. Without these key components, your lesson will no doubt fall flat and miss learning expectations for all of your students. Listen to the expert, Dorean Dow on this subject! Then tune into the next episode as we apply some great tech tools!
