Online resources

The following online resources offer fun and easy ways to step up student participation and interaction in your classroom:

  • Socrative is an app that boosts classroom engagement. Launch a pre-prepared quiz or ask an impromptu question for instant student feedback.

  • Showing an excerpt from a TED talk or a documentary film helps kick start student discussion or shake up a class that is already in progress.
