By ETT Teacher Shawn O’Neill

After spending 24 years within the elementary classroom, and now working with increased ed college students to assist put together them for school rooms of their very own, I typically get requested questions on learn how to create a classroom that makes all learners really feel secure, assured and engaged. Just lately I used to be requested the query, “What helps to create a optimistic, equitable studying setting”, and the very first thing that got here to my thoughts was permitting our college students, regardless of the age or grade stage, voice and selection. However what’s voice and selection and what does that seem like? 

After we permit our college students to specific themselves creatively and make selections about their studying, we’re giving them a voice of their training. College students have a possibility to have a say of their studying, fairly than being informed precisely what they should produce. This freedom, or alternative, not solely helps college students to change into extra motivated and engaged, it additionally reduces nervousness and raises confidence. 

Okay, however how can we do that? One of many best methods to permit your college students voice and selection within the classroom is to offer them with a wide range of selections that offers college students the chance to specific their studying in a method that permits them to really feel profitable. With all the advances in know-how that we’ve seen over the previous couple of years, permitting college students to create their work digitally appears to be a no brainer. Cue Adobe Specific!

Think about letting our college students create an infographic as an alternative of a bodily posterboard, an internet e-book report, fairly than having at hand write every little thing. Think about utilizing digital instruments to design a e-book cowl, poster or journey brochure utilizing the numerous instruments that Adobe Specific gives.  Adobe Specific permits college students to create graphics, movies, shows, webpages and even change into digital storytellers utilizing the narration options provided on the platform. Not solely is Adobe Specific straightforward to make use of and visually interesting, it encourages college students to be artistic!
