Abstract

The high school classroom is arguably changing every day. Technology is also growing and in the hands of younger generations. Although schools have different views about technology, student engagement and achievement have the potential to improve instruction and learning. A common issue in the classroom is students' lack of motivation and engagement. Students who may be shy or not as mathematically confident can participate online while sitting in the classroom and receive feedback. Several technological tools can be used in the classroom; Google Classroom, Annotate.net, SMART Notebook, Plickers, and more. Students can also reflect more on their work and receive help with mathematical concepts. When students are not in school, students can still have independence in their schoolwork to get assignments completed on time and help their grades while improving their mathematical thinking abilities.

Technology in the Classroom

The high school classroom is arguably changing every day. Technology is also growing and in the hands of younger generations. Although schools have different views about technology, student engagement and achievement have the potential to improve instruction and learning. A common issue in the classroom is students' lack of motivation and engagement. Students who may be shy or not as mathematically confident can participate online while sitting in the classroom and receive feedback. Several technological tools can be used in the classroom; Google Classroom, Annotate.net, SMART Notebook, Plickers, and more. Students can also reflect more on their work and receive help with mathematical concepts. When students are not in school, students can still have independence in their schoolwork to get assignments completed on time and help their grades while improving their mathematical thinking abilities.
