Feb. Teaching / Tech Tip: Low-Stakes Assignments for Technology

Feb. 3, 2022

If you are using technology in your classroom, it is a wonderful idea to scaffold in low-stakes assignments for students to practice, play, and experience the technology before preparing higher-stakes assignments. That way students and the instructor will have more confidence, clarity, and troubleshooting before final projects. These activities can include: in-class writing, reflections, lab work, reading responses, peer reviews etc. in the various technologies such as VoiceThread, Digication, PlayPosit, etc. For more information we recommend working with our Digital Learning team!
