Amp Up Student Engagement and AccountabilityUsing Desmos (With a Focus On Non-Math Subjects)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Desmos (free) is not just for math teachers anymore! In this session you'll learn how to use Desmos activities in order to create and deliver engaging lessons that allow you to see students' comprehension level on a keystroke-by-keystroke basis. I will create a Desmos activity (lesson) in real-time and you will then have the opportunity to complete the activity as if you were a student.

Since founding the Desmos for Language Teachers Facebook Group (1,300+ members) and the Desmos for Social Studies Educators Facebook group (50+ members), I have lead numerous online Desmos trainings and informational sessions for teachers from a variety of disciplines.  I look forward to continuing to learn with you all!
