Hi everyone,this is my first post to this discussion board and I am looking forward to hearing your replies.
At the moment I use ted talks quite often in the classroom.My students also love kahoot for revision.I am wondering if you have any other suggestions for using technology in the classroom?We have 1 main computer,the students all have phones and access to free wi fi connection.
Thanks in advance.

If technology is not used in the classroom, I think it is boring and static. We all meet technology quite early, due to the time we are in. Therefore, the technology used in the classroom is familiar to the students so that the student's attention can be regained by the teacher. This is important to me because interest in the lecture decreases for a while only in concrete material or oral lessons. Nobody can have an enjoyable and productive time in a stationary lesson.Changing time conditions and people's acquaintance with technology at a very young age is quite normal today. By using technology in the classroom, I can both attract the attention of the students and provide an environment where the student can express himself more comfortably in a stationary lesson. I think a lesson that I teach only verbally will be insufficient because if I don't get the distracted attention of the students after a short time, I can see a group of students who are just yawning or just physically there, and I don't want it. Another advantage, as I have just mentioned to students to meet more usable systems in their future and present lives, as the time conditions bring us closer to technology if they change

I use all sorts of different supports both online and "on paper" and I think the more varied the methods the more interested the students are. I don't think this is news because effective teachers have always looked for new ways of getting the lesson content to stick and keeping students interested, we just have more choices.
