  • EdTech BFF Game!
  • Educational Duct Tape Question: What are some specific tech tools that educators can use to make their classroom interactive?
    • “Interactive Learning is learning that is responsive and relevant, that engages students.”
    • Responsive, not Reactive
      • Here’s a summary from this article: “Responsiveness implies thoughtful action that considers long and short term outcome in the context of the situation at hand. Reactive behavior is immediate and without conscious thought, like a knee jerk response. Reactive behavior is often driven by the emotions.”
