Facilitating interactive collaboration and active student engagement while teaching virtually is a large yet essential task. Teachers need to assess formatively, and students need to have autonomy and ownership in their learning. Using tools such as Pear Deck, Jamboard, Padlet, and MURAL will allow students to interact with you and the class like they would have with your white board in your physical classroom. There are so many options...but which platform(s) should we use and why?! In this session, participants will compare and contrast various interactive tools, and will consider how and why these can support developmentally appropriate practices, formative assessment, community building, and engagement.
