Is it possible to have students selecting their class activities and still be engaged? Can students be held accountable for their coursework while still choosing what they do? In this session, attendees will be exposed to a variety of digital resources and practices that will enable this to occur in their classrooms. The resources described in this session are focused towards an 8th grade science class utilizing Chromebooks but can be adapted to fit any grade level, subject discipline and internet connected device.
