Tasty Tech: Appetizing Lesson Ideas
Sprinkle something special into every lesson! Join Tony Vincent for a two-day workshop to explore how to combine teaching strategies and free digital tools to add some flavor to any lesson.
Experience lessons as a student and then dig into how they were created. Tony shares hypnotic hooks, conversation kickstarters, dynamic discussion prompts, creative closures, and recipes for reflection. These activity ideas are designed to be low prep and easily mixed into any existing lesson at any grade level.
Bring a Windows, Mac, or Chromebook computer because you’ll be actively creating and experimenting with online tools during the workshop. You’ll be cooking up a storm as you concoct irresistible learning experiences for your students. Featured tech ingredients include emojis, Google Slides, Google Forms, Lumio, Canva, Jamboard, Flippity, digital stickers, online whiteboards, and more!
