How Do You Say "Student Engagement" in Spanish?

February 28, 2015

If you’re looking for a way to integrate tech into your classroom, keep track of student progress, and bring them a fun learning game, Spanish language teacher Mara Gust (Greenbush Middle River School District, MN) might have a great answer. Kahoot!, a trivia-based program, posts questions and rewards students with points based not only on the number of correct answers but also the time it takes them to choose. (Don’t worry if your classroom is BYOD – Gust notes that Kahoot! works on any device.) The program also allows teachers to download a summary of responses to the questions, so that they can see how students have answered.
