They have volunteered to share their expertise with you through videos, text, and images. Please be respectful, and cite the individual authors when you reference their work.
We hope this guide will be a "go-to" resource for you as you integrate technology in your classroom, to empower your students to become thought leaders and change makers.

Barber MS students in Laura Teatsworth’s classes have been effectively using gaming technology in their instruction as an end-of-year review activity. Many have been using Kahoot, Quizizz, Quizlet, and even Formative to do the same - but Blooket is a new take on trivia and review games.
A teacher/host picks a question set and a unique game mode. Then players join the game on their own devices with a code. Once the game starts, players will answer questions to help them win. That’s where the fun begins; a variety of games are offered to keep students engaged and excited.
