As students and learning styles change, teachers must adapt to fit the needs of their classroom, even though the foundational content remains the same. Fortunately, modern technology provides new tools and resources to help teachers continuous modernize their methods.
Henry County High School (HCHS) Librarian Rachel Burgin and Senior English Teacher Jerilyn Vaught will be presenting at this year’s Kentucky Society for Technology in Education (KySTE) Conference on Nearpod tools.
This year their presentation is titled “Nifty Nearpod!” to match the conference’s “Vintage to Virtual” theme. Nearpod, a website for K-12 teachers, engages students in interactive lessons across all content areas that include virtual reality tours and videos, along with various tools and online activities such as quizzes, drawing boards, collaboration boards and polls.
