How do you use LaunchPad? Launchpad drives the flow of our class through access to online content, assignments and quizzes. We use the e-book for students to group together, investigate, and make meaning of the content. I assign a multitude of Launchpad activities and then give students the choice to engage with topics that are meaningful and applicable to their experiences and goals for growth.
Advice on using technology with students: Embrace technology, use it, and reflect with students on its effectiveness. Experiment with the structures that are provided, model access for students early and often, integrate online assignments with face-to-face instruction, and implement projects that support collaboration and deeper understanding among students.
