A few years ago I observed
4. Inclusion. A quiet student can have a loud presence through displaying via AirPlay. An off task student can now be redirected through displaying the notes, writing down the summary, or displaying the materials to the entire class. The student remains on task while displaying the information.
5. Students have all the materials. When students display the course content, they have access to all of the materials. As a teacher, I put up everything on Schoology. For them to display everything, the course has to be logically laid out for each students to access the materials. At the end of the lesson, they know where all of the learning materials were and often have them downloaded on their device.
6. Student Centered. To have students display the materials, I plan on more student centered learning. It forces me to create lessons that involve the students heavily and provides feedback to them constantly. The lesson structure is developed with lots of checks for understanding that are centered around students displaying their work to the entire class.
7. Freedom. Not being at my computer frees me to be with students. If I am not moving to the computer to change a PowerPoint, click on a link, pull up a reading, or anything else, I can be with the students. I move around and see what they are doing instead of spending time at my desk. It minimizing my transitions as a teacher. When students pull up the materials, I can be engaging students.
